Oh hell no!
I have received a few tips as a pilot after getting in to a particular difficult destination.
No, there were not suggestions as to where I should park the airplane....
Maybe back in the 60s or 70s
Now ya gots me having impure thoughts
Lol, tip them for what, bringing me my 8oz of orange juice? Good luck with that.
Well back then, I wouldn’t have stopped with just the tip.
Maybe pay them a responsible wage and charge the customer enough to cover it?

No way. As cranky as most of them seem to be these days, they don't deserve tips.
With that last pic, you better not even start with the tip..
On our recent AA flight from STL to MIA, the stewardess yelled at a group of us sitting in two rows....she heard cell phone music apparently.
The other stewardess on the same flight, got on the horn and announced for everyone to be patient, that this was their first time flying on this plane and they didn't know what they were doing....and right afterward, said there was going to be lot's of turbulence.
Sure, if the the FED's tax them on an assumed 15% of sales like they do waiters/waitresses etc...... Oh wait..... the crappy coffee and Cokes are baked into the ticket price
Reminds me of the scene in "My Blue Heaven." She won't take the tip so he slips it in her pocket. Today that would get you on the no fly list.
The two flight attendant groups (AA and US Airways) finally merged a couple months back, so FAs are finding themselves flying on certain airframes for the first time (US FAs on the 737, AA FAs on the E190, for example). They get emergency training and practice with the door trainers in the school house, but they get released to the line without ever seeing the airplane.
Better tip or else lol
I have attempted to tip on several flights when I order my booze and they always turn it down. So I stopped.
I wasn't slamming them for their situation, just how they handled themselves. Yelling and accusing?...but mostly, I just am not sure it's proper to say "we don't know what we're doing" right before saying there's going to be a lot of turbulence. Not a very trusting or soothing statement for nervous passengers.
Being a pilot the turbulence doesn't bother me but for some it's a scary thing and they need to at the very least, believe they are in competent hands.
Most likely not going to earn anyone tips...
Flight crew are not allowed to drink while flying....... So I'm not surprised really that they turned you down.
Oh I agree completely. Just explaining why we have FAs that are new to certain airplanes. It's been causing some interesting situations lately.
Yet one more on the how much to tip list that I will completely ignore.
Yes, and appreciate the information. Always helps keep things in perspective....much needed these days.
Tipping a FA? Nope, not gonna happen.
But lately some of the pilots look so young I'm tempted to say "Nice landing" and offer 'em a lollipop......
