Although you have to work for long hours, you also have a lot of free time, since flight attendants have extra days off when compared with regular jobs.
On the other hand, work as a cabin crew have some risks. Despite flight attendants being highly trained to deal with some flight complications, it’s still a risk profession that involves emotional balance and a great capacity to keep calm. You have to know how to deal with disruptive passengers and being polite no matter what.
Furthermore, it’s not a very healthy profession. You don’t have a regular sleep time, don’t eat regularly, have to support different temperatures and weathers, and spend many hours on your feet with the wrong footwear.
Being a part of a cabin crew it’s a challenge every day. Fortunately we have great professionals in the airlines industry that makes difference every day.
