Flight attendant A: The snobs in first class are already wearing me out.
Flight attendant B: I know.

Hi everybody! According to an online dictionary , "snob" has two meanings below. Could you please let me know its exact meaning in this situation?

1. One who despises, ignores, or is patronizing to those he or she considers inferior.
2. One who is convinced of his or her superiority in matters of taste or intellect.

Thanks very much!
