    Almost six months ago, we shared with you one of our best little travel tips: to bribe flight attendants with chocolate, specifically a box of Vosges Exotic Bars because they're individually wrapped and varied. Well, we've got an important update! If you're short on time or can't find a Vosges, FAs seems to love the Ferrero Collectionbox just as much.

    It happened to us recently that we were running for a long-haul flight and desperate for some of the special treatment that usually comes with giving a gift, and we laid down $19.99 for this boxand guess what? It was a massive hit with the crew.
    If you're still curious about how and why chocolate makes the in-flight experience better when you're not even the one eating it, here's our original case for it:

    I always give the lead FA/Purser a box of chocolates at the start of a long haul flight, to share with their team. Not at all intended as a bribe, just intended to let them know that there are pax who see how hard they work and who appreciate what they do. It is much appreciated, I see a lot of smiles during the flight.
