Is it your dream to become cabin crew? Cabin crew, flight attendant or air hostess; whatever you call it, they have varied and exciting jobs, far away from the nine to five, you must be prepared to be flexible: waking up in one city and going to bed in another.

Let us guide you through the requirements for the role, and what you can expect when working as professional cabin crew
Cabin crew provide excellent customer service to flyers of all types, meaning the job is just as different as your passengers. Being the face of the airline, it’s important to be friendly and approachable. flight attendants greet passengers , show them to their seats but cabin crew must also be organised making the most of an aeroplane’s limited resources
As well as making sure they are comfortable, cabin crew are trained to deal with a wide range of emergency situations. From assisting in medical emergencies, to thoroughly understanding exit procedures in the unlikely event of a crash, cabin crew are there to keep you safe as much as comfortable.
What to Expect
Salaries for cabin crew start at around £16,000 ($24,000 U.S.), but your full package is likely to include some benefits depending on your employer. If you are crew on a lay over in other cities than their home base you may be paid a daily meal allowance. You may also get pay per block hour (a set rate paid to cabin crew for each hour in the air) or commission on any duty free items you sell.
Flight attendants need to be flexible, as work can sometimes come at short notice. When you make it to the plane, you will attend a pre-flight briefing on the plane, its schedule and any passengers with special requirements (such as diabetics or infants). Pre flight duties include checking safety equipment, ensuring the plane is clean and tidy, and that all stock is on board.
After the safety demonstration, and during the fight, cabin crew make announcements on behalf of the pilot, ensure passengers are comfortable and any requests are dealt with before helping them disembark at the end of the flight. A key role of all flight attendants is reassuring passengers and taking the lead in the event of an emergency; ensuring all safety procedures are followed and must file a flight report after landing detailing any notable incidents.
