Eight Things You Can Get on Your Flight for Free

Airlines don’t have many benefits these days – in fact, they charge extra for basic services. However, there are things you can actually get for free, and Business Insider understands them.

Some of these items will vary depending on your airline and availability, so keep in mind that these are general reserve conditions, not stone-built rules. Here are a few highlights from their list:

Extra Snacks : Free snacks offered on flights are tiny and often leave you hungry. Just ask for seconds – if there are leftovers left after serving all the customers, the flight attendants will happily offer you an extra snack.

Cockpit tour: Security measures governing cockpit bypass have become stricter, but many airlines will continue to do so. The best time to ask is usually after the plane has landed, as this is when the pilots are in no rush.

Essential medicines and bandages : While this depends on airline regulations, most flights have essential medicines such as pain relievers and antacids, as well as patches. They are free if you ask.

They also mention that free alcohol is often available on long-haul and international flights. This is less common on shorter flights, but it might still be worth asking about. I have been on several flights where I assumed the booze was extra, only to find out that it was indeed free.
