Thrillist staffers play a round of "Ask a Flight Attendant" and learn why you should never drink the coffee (or any hot beverage) on an airplane. Host Wil Fulton talks with "The Grumpy Stew," the world's grumpiest flight attendant, on the things that bother him most about the job right now. We hear about the glory days of PanAm with writer Julia Cooke (Come Fly the World With Me) and former PanAM stewardesses Tori Werner and Betty A. Riegel (Up in the Air). Phil Tiemeyer (Plane Queer) tells us how they history of Gay men in America intersects with the history of Flight Attendants. We visit a crash pad via The Hotel Crash Pad Network (which is Veteran-owned and operated - happy Veteran's Day!) Learn more about your ad-choices at See for privacy information.
