In the clip, which has so far been viewed more than 624,000 times, Ale wastes little time in delving into her insights.

‘Let’s talk about things you shouldn’t do on an airplane – coming from a flight attendant. 

‘The first tip is try not to fall asleep before take off. I know travelling can be exhausting and sometimes you just want to get on an airplane and go straight to sleep.

‘So not only is it not good for your ears to fall asleep before take off but you also want to remember that taxiing is one of the most crucial phases of flights.

‘You want to make sure that you are completely aware and completely awake in case of an emergency or in case you have to evacuate.’

But Ale, who has nearly 10 years in the industry, did not stop there with her tips, adding: ‘Next is do not consume your own alcohol. It is against federal relations to consume your own alcohol because we do need to make sure that you are drinking responsibly. 

‘And if you are drinking your own alcohol we can’t really track that. It is a federal thing it is not an airline thing.’

Last but not least, she concluded: ‘One of the most obvious ones is don’t walk around barefoot on any airline or any airplane.

‘If you decide to take your shoes off in your seat, that’s a different story but do not walk into the lavatory with bare feet.

‘You never know what you are stepping on and the floor is not always the cleanest.’

Her invaluable insight was soon flooded with comments from viewers who admitted they were guilty of sleeping before being in the air.

One person wrote: ‘Omgggg I fall asleep instantly… but I justify it with being an incredibly light sleeper and my gut knowing when to wake up.’ 

A second person added: ‘If I don’t fall asleep before takeoff, I won’t be sleeping. But I can usually sleep through the whole flight if I fall asleep as soon as I sit down lol.’

Another commented: ‘I try to sleep before takeoff because my anxiety is so high with takeoff/landing.’

Someone else admitted: ‘I get the best sleep before take off, especially during taxiing.’

According to Travel + Leisure: ‘It’s best to stay awake until after takeoff for two reasons: ear barotrauma and evacuation safety.

‘Ear barotrauma, also known as airplane ear, is the stress that builds in your ear due to differences in air pressure between your environment and your inner ear. 

‘This imbalance can cause your eardrum to bulge painfully.

‘There’s a second reason you shouldn’t nap during takeoff and landing, and it has to do with your safety. 

‘If you’re asleep when an emergency happens, it might take you some time to get your bearings and react appropriately, and that could be a problem.’  

Ale’s insight comes amid the ongoing airplane etiquette debate which has recently seen passengers complain about seat swapping tactics as well as ‘very large seatmates.’
