    The wild “Coffee, Tea or Me” era of flying is long gone, but frequent fliers still want to know: is it socially acceptable to ask out your flight attendant? And if you can summon up the courage to try it, what are your chances?

    “Good looks definitely help because flight attendants don’t have a lot of time to talk. But if you’re clever, you can still find ways to catch a flight attendant’s attention.”
    - Cheryl Harnden, former flight attendant

    We contacted Delta, Southwest, United and American Airlines and each carrier said that they have no policy preventing flight attendants from fraternizing with passengers.

    “We trust our people to make the right decisions on and off the clock,” said Michelle Agnew, a spokesperson for Southwest.

    Flight attendants say that fending off flirtatious passengers comes with the territory, but some admit that they are open to finding a mate, or at least a date, on the job.

    Full story here.

    Okay, fess up. Have you ever asked out a FA? I haven't; have you?

    I've thought about it, but ultimately I felt like it isn't right to do.

    If they are based in your home town no problem, but to chase them would be a joke, and a real waste of time.

    The old King keep his love's far away from his village, he would send runners to get them,
    The runner keep dying off...
    Old King know the chasing would kill you..

    In principle, I don't see a big problem with it, as long as you're not a creep about it. I'd suggest, if you're going to do it, do it towards the end of the flight, or it could be awkward if they say no. Also, the people sitting around you may be put off by it.
