Here’s an example of a strong cabin crew cover letter:
30 Acre St
Dear Ms Montrey,
I am writing this letter to express my interest in your vacancy, Cabin Crew, that I saw advertised on Aviation Job Search.
I have always wanted to work for a prestigious airline such as this, particularly in an environment with a focus on performance and development.
I have previous experience working on cabin crew for Hot Airlines, and therefore have a detailed knowledge for the role and skills required to complete the role successfully. My present job requires me to welcome passengers on board, serve them food and beverages as well as other products, while also looking after them in a fast paced, highly pressurised environment.
I am a bubbly, well spoken character who always looks smart and professional. I am fluent in English with a great sense of humour. My personality is warm and caring and therefore I make passengers, making them feel at ease whenever I’m dealing with them. I am more than able to create a positive in-flight experience with my enthusiastic and passionate manner.
I am a very confident individual, and therefore very confident that my skills will meet the expectations of this role. I would love the opportunity to meet with you further, to discuss my application and prove that I am the ideal candidate for your airline.
Thank you very much for reading this and I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.
23 Courter Road,

Proofread, and proofread again
Proofreading your cover letter is essential. If you’re busy writing out more than one application for cabin crew jobs, you’re bound to make a mistake. Read over your cover letter repeatedly, and rewrite it again if you have to. Then, have someone else read it for you (it’s always easier for someone else to spot mistakes).
