American low-cost airline Frontier Airlines has started asking passengers to tip their cabin crew.

US-based Frontier Airlines previously introduced a tipping function on digital tablets which would be pooled among all flight attendants.

According to reports, the airline is now encouraging passengers to tip individual flight attendants.

The tablet, used to order snacks, prompts passengers to tip 15 percent, 20 percent, 25 percent or a custom gratuity.

The carrier says that flight attendants see the in-flight tip program as a way to supplement their income.

The Bureau of Labor Statistic states that US-based cabin crew make a median pay of $50,500 per year.

United Airlines flight attendants are not allowed to accept tips, and American Airlines crew members are instructed to decline them.

We expect similar move from Ryanair very soon. 🙂
