What a GREAT story! Another shining example of the powers of charm … I never use the call button, but I always sit on the bulkhead in an aisle seat, so I just hop and go ask for what I want. My theory is that the more reasons one has to get up and move on a flight, the better one feels.
We just had a poster on our advocates forum who was bitterly complaining about the treatment he received in biz on Turkish Airlines. I didn’t have the heart to tell him that if he rang that call button 3 times in an hour he became invisible to the crew.
