They were very much appreciated and it is very nice to feel appreciated.
As I said I have never reduced the auto-tips and on one occasion handed over an envelope in addition as a recognition of exceptional service.
The look on the face of the crewmember was priceless!
It is nice to be nice and does not always cost much either.
