    No. I'm tired of subsidizing other people's income because their employers won't pay them a reasonable wage. In fact, we should get rid of tipping altogether. I would prefer to pay more for my meal than tip. Why are we paying people for doing their job? This is why the country has an entitlement problem.

    I have no problem as long as the Stewardess are hot. I would rather give a Hot Stewardess a tip than spend $12 on some terrible in flight movie!

    I would prefer to tip in places that I frequent. If I always tip high I get extra-good service all the time.

    Flight attendants make a decent salary AFAIK, as opposed to restaurant workers who often rely on tips to survive, so, tip servers/bartenders? Yes, always. Tip flight attendants? Not so much...although, if a flight attendant allowed me to remove the batteries from the restroom smoke detector? I must say I would seriously consider it...

    Nah.

    You don’t wanna add a custom of tipping flight attendants to air travel. There’s already enough reason for petty tensions to blow up on a moving aircraft, and we don’t need tip drama thrown into the mix.

    Great, all we need is to have the "hot" flight attendants fluttering over the big time spenders and ignoring everyone else and possibly overserving alcohol because drunk people tip more.
