The flights of VIP guests or international superstars always come with prestige and require careful organisation from airlines. Although the many peculiar and sometimes rude requests of superstars cause hardships for airline stewards and stewardesses, they always fulfil them in order not to lose the company’s reputation.

Femina reported that Szabolcs Kordos’s book, Airport Hungary, tells the stories of when Hungarian flight attendants served international superstars during their flights. Some of it went well and they could not wait to be close to the celebrity, but sometimes they had to bear unusual and rude requests as well.
Before the arrival of international pop icon Madonna, the whole airline and the crew are well informed about the star’s requests and habits when she takes the plane. According to one Hungarian steward, the arrival of Madonna is only joyful for those who have never met her because those who have know that the singer is difficult to handle.
The Hungarian man reported that Madonna treats the flight attendants as her servants, and they always need to be close to her anytime she asks something. One time, the singer became so angry she even threw a glass at one of the flight attendants.
Madonna is still welcomed, though, unlike supermodel Naomi Campbell, whose attitude was so controversial so many times that many airlines do not fly her anymore.
The Hungarian flight attendants could not wait to see Aniston, which unfortunately did not become a reality. Once the actress boarded the plane, she completely locked herself into her cabin until the plane took off. David Beckham, however, showed up in the middle of the night and chatted with the crew about their job and life on an aeroplane.
The superstar was only willing to communicate with flight attendants through her assistant sitting next to her.
The actor introduced himself to each flight attendant and was also happy to chat with them during the flight.
Similarly to Jennifer Aniston, though he did not lock himself into a cabin, he stayed quiet during the whole flight and did not want to talk to anyone.
The talkative celebrity was polite and kind, although the crew spent tiring long minutes loading her luggage and suitcases into the plane.
