It isn't a job it is a life style. Very few careers are like it. It has it's ups and downs and you miss out on a lot of family stuff eg in 24 years I have only been home 3 times. Most people say they will join for 2 or 3 years but we get so used to it and why approx 9000 of us have done at least 15 years

No this is your own purchase. You can buy from uniform stores but most people find their own

FYI - the heel of your ground shoes need to be no higher than the height of your ID (from the sole to heel tip) as a guide for you.

babyjack/brightonrocks/other experienced crew, one of you mentioned it was a lifestyle not i job. i like that. but with so many thousands of cabin crew do u ever fly with the same person twice? or make regular friends? there just seems so many different people to be working with everyday that i don't see how you'd ever get to KNOW people other than on ur training course!!
