Frontier Airlines Now Asks Passengers to Tip Flight Attendants
The great tipping debate. We've all heard someone sound off about why they refuse to tip servers or baristas. Some say the standard of a 20% tip is too high. Others say they base the tip on the service. This is surely to spark a whole new debate.. should we tip flight attendants when they serve refreshments?!
It was recently discovered that Frontier Airlines, a budget US airline, prompts you to tip when paying for your beverages. It gives you a few options: 15%, 20%, 25%, custom or "I prefer not to leave a gratuity". People have mixed emotions.
Flight attendants aren't your typical service industry job where you expect to tip. But they are serving you.. so where do we make the differentiation?
A Frontier spokesperson said: "Currently tips are shared amongst all members of the flight attendant crew on a given flight." The company said it is keeping no proceeds from gratuities. Sooo.. what do you think?!
If you were on a Frontier flight, would you leave a tip?
