unfortunately the only way to be sure that your waiter, cabin steward whomever gets that little extra something is to quietly "slip the bills to them". "grease their palm" for lack of a better word. i hate the fact that with traditional tipping all tips are pooled and then doled out according to rank and seniority, which means that the so-called "Head Waiter" (who does nothing but show-off in my opinion) will get more than the busboy who works his tail off.
