A FLIGHT attendant has revealed how she steals leftover food from passengers rather than pay for dinner herself.
Self-confessed cheapskate Stephanie Rivers, from Texas, will make an effort to scour the plane once it has landed to see who hasn’t tucked into their in-flight meal.
Speaking on TLC’s Extreme Cheapskates, she says: “When the passengers leave the plane I look for a meal that’s left by a pilot or a passenger.
“There’s really neat stuff here like ravioli or pasta primavera.
“The food is perishable items, they’re going to throw it away if I don’t take it home and eat it.
“I’m saving myself about $15 on every meal.”
But her husband Jimmy is less impressed.
“Stephanie’s idea of fine dining is bringing home what the airline’s leftover,” he says, “We open up the refrigerator and it looks like a deli.”
