What is being a Cabin Crew Member all about?
The work of a flight attendant is very exciting and offers the opportunity to meet different people. From the moment you welcome passengers onboard the aircraft, their safety and comfort are your concern. You will be demonstrating emergency procedures, serving meals and drinks, taking care of special needs passengers, and may be selling duty-free items. You will deal with both routine tasks, as well as exceptional and challenging situations.
Flight attendants are important representatives of the airline and must present a good image at all times. A flight attendant should:
- Have a friendly, caring personality.
- Be contactable at all times (make sure your cell phone is turned on).
- Have a reliable means of getting to work at unusual hours - being ‘on time’ for work is vital.
