Virgin Atlantic flight attendant lifts lid on whether the mile high club exists

Lucy Jessica Carter, 28, joined Virgin Atlantic as a 21-year-old all the way back in 2011.

The mum-of-two, from London, left her job as a cabin crew member in order to raise a family.

Now in a recent Q&A on her YouTube channel, the former flight attendant has uncovered the secrets of the profession.

In the video, she answered the questions everyone wants to know about the job, including whether the mile high club is a thing.

She said: “I've had quite a few questions of this. Did I ever catch anyone in the mile high club? No, I didn't. Honestly never.

"I mean there were a few occasions where two people come out of the toilet together, like it was a husband and wife.

“There were a few of those but I don't know what they're doing in there, who knows right?

"They could have just been going to the toilet together but I never actually thought to myself ‘they're up to x, y and z in the toilet’.

"I never actually heard of any anyone catching anyone either so maybe it is a little bit of like a scandalised myth.

“I’m sure someone at some point has caught someone doing it on the plane but in my personal experience, no."

YouTube users also asked Lucy if she and her co-workers suffered from jet lag as a result of flying to far-flung destinations.

She explained: “Yes absolutely, all the time. I think any long-haul cabin crew member will experience jet lag – it's kind of unavoidable really.”

But Lucy’s only bad experience involved a customer who was furious about a snack running out on board.

“A lady got really funny with me once because I ran out of Pringles for her kids,” she revealed.

Lucy added: “But some people like to get really funny about the most ridiculous things and that is one of them – the fact you're out of something that they want on the trolley’.

"There's are so many different positions you can work, you can either be working at the back or you can be at the front or you can be on the trolley. They do try and give you something called a crew rest which means you get a certain break on the plane."
