EasyJet has found a unique way of getting its staff to communicate onboard and is now ready to reveal all.

You may have noticed flight attendants using a variety of different hand signals but what do they all mean?

The gestures have mainly been implemented so that staff can put in food requests from different parts of the plane.

Weird signals include a chicken dance for a chicken sandwich request and a champagne cork being popped to make staff aware that there has been a proposal.

According to the Mirror report , the revelation emerged after TV presenter Jamie East tweeted a video of a strange hand code being used by an EasyJet air stewardess.

He wrote: "Excuse me but please explain what ON EARTH is going on here?!"

The airline later replied with a video which explained the secret signals.

Staff explained: "EasyJet serve over 6 million customers per month, we need our inflight service to be quick and efficient to ensure we deliver excellent customer service.

"To do this we have developed some secret hand signals to enable the crew to communicate with each other during the inflight service minimising unnecessary chatter."

Meanwhile Tina Milton, Head of Cabin Services added in a statement: "With over 6 million passengers served each month, the ‘secret code’ has been invented to enable our cabin crew to deliver a speedy and efficient service, whilst keeping unnecessary crew noise to a minimum and provide passengers with a relaxing and enjoyable flight.

"EasyJet flight attendants are trained in all aspects of customer service and air safety, and the secret hand signals are an integral part of their inflight knowledge.

"We pride ourselves on providing an excellent inflight food service over the past 21 years, and our ‘secret code’ helps us to ensure customer satisfaction in a timely manner.

"Next time you’re on-board an EasyJet flight, have a look to see which hand signals from the code you can spot!"
