Why do some hosties or steward's turn their photo id card around during service in flight?

If you’re referring to the ASIC (aviation security identification card) then it is a government issued security card which entitles the holder to work in the secure areas of an airport. For airline employees it often displays the airline name but it’s not a staff ID card. It is required to be worn at all times when working airside. Once boarding closes it no longer needs to be worn and most staff remove it at that point. I’ve never seen it turned around, usually just removed along with their jackets etc on departure.

Why the negative comments? It's true! Trust me - from personal experience, as I held an ASIC. It's to stop you seeing surnames - there's been a few instances of crew members being added on facebook, trolled etc.

Agree with above

There is no need for the card to be on display once they are in flight with their full name visable to the public
