Flight Attendant Friday

The flight attendant job is unlike any other job in the world. We’re first responders, safety professionals, security officers, paramedics, and customer service representatives – all wrapped up into one. And those are just our primary responsibilities! It takes a special kind of person to do this job. If you’ve been on a plane recently, then you know first-hand that flight attendants come from all types of backgrounds. Some flight attendants are just out of college, some are looking for a second or third career, and some have even been doctors or lawyers but just needed a life-change! After chatting with some of our fly friends, we were so amazed by some of these stories that we wanted to start sharing them, so we launched the ‘Flight Attendant Friday’ series on our blog! Follow the hashtag on Instagram, like our Facebook page, and get ready to be inspired every Friday!

Past Flight Attendants:

Oh boy… Well, it was at a time when I was younger and I was stopped by a Flight Attendant while traveling with my family in the airport and was given a pair of wings (like the ones the airlines have now to hand out to special PAX and kiddos alike!) It was the greatest feeling ever. You see people and the world in a different light when you’re a young kid! Seeing the Flight Attendant dressed so well with a smile and showing passion for the job made me want to pursue that career someday. It always stuck with me and from that point I always loved traveling and wanted to travel more, taking trips to new places!

Fast forward a few jobs later to the year 2018; I took a leap of faith and applied to United Airlines. It all happened so fast from the start of the acceptance letter to the interview to training day. I left my current customer service job and headed down to UA’s training center, graduated with the Friendly Flyer Award and I never looked back! Never would I have changed anything different to get me to where I am today, doing the job I love and working for one of the greatest airlines! I continue to strive to be my best even in the toughest times and make sure everyone, even my crew, are happy and taken care of and for me; that’s what makes this job the best job in the world!

My husband would say I have a very eclectic resumé. Bakery Manager, Owner of a Wedding Cake business, Ramp Agent, Banker, Elementary School Librarian, Waitress… and finally at 45 years old – Flight Attendant! To be honest, I didn’t think this would be my path. I wasn’t the kid who always wanted to be a Flight Attendant. But a few years ago, my husband took me to Paris and Grenoble for the first time. It was my first trip overseas. When we were leaving for home, I cried. I didn’t want to go home. I just discovered this whole other world and didn’t want to leave. He told me if I want to travel more, maybe I should look into working for the airlines. Four years ago I decided to follow that advice and became a Customer Service Agent at Southwest Airlines, and promoted Customer Service Supervisor shortly after. I really enjoyed my leadership role, but when the position for flight attendant opened up I figured I didn’t have anything to lose so I applied. And can you believe it, they offered it to me?! So here I am two years in. And I can’t believe I found it. I found my golden ticket. I’ll be here until they tell I can’t anymore. I’m proud to say I’m a Southwest Airlines Flight Attendant!

My journey to becoming a flight was… well, it wasn’t planned. Not one bit! I didn’t grow up dreaming of being a flight attendant nor did I have family in the aviation industry. It all sort of came about by accident.

I was in college at the time and had switched majors from Pre-Med to Pre-Nursing to Education then back to Nursing. Drowning in debt and just completely lost as to what to do with my life.

After a long talk with my mom about my future, she suggested looking into being a “stewardess” and the only airline I had ever flown growing up in Dallas was American.
Before I knew it, I was in training. Still unsure of this life and this job but by the time I got my wings, I knew I was in the right place.

I had been so lost before, an indecisive wandering soul looking for a path to follow. And with these wings I have moved across the country five times to four different bases. I’ve made life long friends, finally found a city I can call home (Philadelphia), fallen in love, and five years later I am no longer lost. I have found a home. A home in this job and in this lifestyle. I found an extended family in my coworkers, my friends, and our passengers.

I won’t lie, these past few months have been hard and the future is terrifying. I wish I had profound words of advice or hope, but I don’t. All we can do is our best and keep flying!

As a child, I loved airplanes, maybe because we lived near an airport or maybe because my mom was from Germany. Throughout my childhood and teen years, traveling to visit our German relatives became an adventure I always looked forward to.

As an adult, my love for airplanes never left me, and soon I applied to be a Flight Attendant. Now, fifteen years later, my job still inspires me. It enables me to travel and experience new places filled with culture and traditions. I love it so much, I became an inflight instructor to help my coworkers and friends keep their love for flying also.

Being a flight attendant allows me to not only tell the people I love about my experiences, but to bring them along with me.

Right now our industry is literally going through turbulent times, so remember while we’re all wearing masks, smile with your eyes, and passengers will notice!

Since I was a child I was fascinated by those “white lines on the sky” and had a dream: to be able to see a real airplane! I was born in a small city in Romania where we don’t have an airport and the only way to see them is on the sky at 38/40,000 feet… or in pictures! In 2012, I had my first ever flight on a B737, and since that moment I knew where I wanted to be in life. So in 2016 I joined an amazing airline and ever since that day, my passion for airplanes has gotten stronger every day that I spend in this amazing industry, and has made me the aviation geek I am today! I believe that when work meets passion, you find true happiness! So grateful for the beautiful “birds” out there that we get to call our second home!

Ever since I was a kid, I was always fascinated by the airport. I remember going on holiday I was always so excited to go there to see all the planes, and look at the departure board and see where all these planes are flying to. The airport was always a magical place for me, and it stuck with me. After I graduated college, I started working at the airport for a ground handler for a major European airline. I had the time of my life, learning about this industry, and meeting people from all different cultures. I’m from a small town, so this was all new to me! I did that for two years, doing check-in and ticketing. But my favourite part was seeing the crew walk in, with their fancy uniforms, and their confidence exuding through their smiles. I realized it was time for a change of pace, so I applied to be a flight attendant at Sunwing! The process was very quick, and I was lucky enough to be offered a position! Training was really difficult and I was going through a lot of issues in my personal life at that point in time, but I made sure to leave those issues at home, and come to class in a good mood. After only a few days I didn’t have to force it because my class had become a mini family. I was so proud of all of us once we graduated, and I’ve been lucky to fly with a few of them! It’s been a blast! I’ve only been here for 6 months, but I’m so excited to get back up in the air once all this COVID19 stuff improves!

Born and raised in Vietnam, I came to the US at the age of 18 and it was so hard to fit in… especially in the Midwest. I went to college for Nursing but it wasn’t my passion, it was basically for my family’s American dream. I tried to apply for every airline for two years but I never made it. I had given up applying but then one day I was so tired of the pressure from school and work as a CNA, I secretly re-applied to my favorite job and went to an interview session with Spirit. AND I FINALLY MADE IT!

I’m still pretty new as 10-month-old flight attendant but I gotta say: Man I love it! To someone who doesn’t have many friends like me, it fits my lifestyle perfectly. I’m always excited to see where I’m going to be for my next trips and meet lots of people all with different stories. Yes, it can be pretty tiring to deal with difficult passengers but I absolutely love my job. I feel less lonely and the journey that I am on right now has been incredible.

These days have been tough because of COVID-19. Please stay strong, spread kindness, and don’t stop fighting for our rights.

I fell in love with flying years before I set a foot on a plane. Funny, isn’t it? That world made of airplanes, uniforms, suitcases, wonders, and mystery always fascinated me. I felt like I belonged there, I was born for that.

I started at a very young age to learn new languages and everything I could to put the name reality on my dream. Eventually that dream came. I was 19 years old, in a small charter airline back in Italy. I won’t forget the feeling of my first flight. Putting on my uniform, my upset stomach (how nervous I was), the smell of the coffee, airport announcements, people watching, the smell of the cherosene, life was taking off.

After a few years, fate brought me to Emirates. I couldn’t be happier. I have been working seven years with them, currently as business class crew. The only thing I can say is WOW. What an experience! Places, amazing people, music, food. All these incredible things stored in the suitcase of my memories. I am so grateful I get to be what I always wanted to be, where I wanted to be.

Despite those years, being on aircraft everyday, I still look up at the sky and feel blessed.

“Unlike most typical high school graduates, my plans after graduating did not include college or a specific career. Throughout and after high school I had a severe form of epilepsy, a neurological condition that disabled me possibly indefinitely. When I was 21 years old I was eligible for a brain surgery to correct my condition, but I had no idea the doors it would open for me when it irrevocably gave me all abilities back. When I realized I would no longer have seizures, or likely ever have them again, I applied to be a flight attendant. My journey began as a Gate Agent in 2017 and today I am on my third airline, an airline I consider to be my home, my last company. I feel so lucky to be able to meet so many different people and hear so many stories, and make travel experiences a positive one for others. I have dedicated my spare time to empowering hopeful flight attendants and supporting them through the application and training process – this makes me feel truly lucky and looking back I know all obstacles I faced have brought me to this. Right now, everyone all over the world is experiencing reduced activity, reduced work, and reduced socializing. That was my life for nearly a decade as a disabled person struggling with a severe form of epilepsy. I became a flight attendant to prove to myself I could overcome, conquer, and succeed. I will never leave this industry. Now that I’ve grown my first pair of wings – they cannot be clipped. I love all the connections I get to make with guests and colleagues alike, the travel experiences cannot be beat, and the freedom is indescribable. I am grateful for my health, my career, and for my fellow crew members globally who continue to put themselves on the front line to ensure people can get to where they need to go safely and comfortably.”

“Ever since I could remember, my dream has always been to be a Flight Attendant for a major airline. There’s something special about those who hold the title of Flight Attendant: from the commanding presence they hold, to the strength to be away from loved ones (family, friends, and partners) for extended periods of time, always wanting to help out others, and the pride they show to wear the wings adorned to their uniforms.

The day I got hired by US Airways in 2014, that dream became a reality. I got based in Philadelphia (PHL), a major transatlantic hub for the carrier, and have seen many of our European destinations. Due to the merger, I now work for American Airlines and have joined a family of over 27,000 Flight Attendants along with the thousands more employed by all the airlines of the world. The people who I share wings with have become a family that I have enjoyed countless laughs with, gotten to know numerous new destinations with, have exciting layovers, and share in their accomplishments both inside and outside of the industry.

To some we just serve cokes, but they have no idea the myriad of other things we do in addition to service: from Inflight Medical Professionals, Psychologists, Emergency First Responders, and Complaint Resolution Specialists- along with the many careers many of us partake in along with flying (lawyers, nurses, real estate agents, doctors, and architects, to name a few).

Out of thousands of applicants that submitted applications, the airlines saw something uniquely special in us. I am elated to be in this profession! I hope my enthusiasm resonates with others that have contemplated this career and allows their dreams to take flight. Here’s to the many incredible memories to be made around the world! The sky is the limit for those who share in the incredible career that is aviation!”

“I had just finished nursing school, and wasn’t sure which route to take. I started talking to my flight attendant friend for another airline, and the lifestyle he described was something that caught my interest. I love having a new experience everyday and adapting.
I took the chance and applied. I got to the main face-to-face interview and thought, ok there are way too many people… I have no chance. Two months later, I started training, passed training, and I’ve been flying for one year now! My parents and friends have been super supportive of my decision.
To add, I still got my nursing license after I passed training. These days I work as a flight attendant, and a nurse as well! It was too hard to choose just one! ☺️”

“I’d always dreamed about being a flight attendant. I patiently waited until I was old enough to apply for my dream job!!! I was so excited to hear that I’d landed the role weeks before my 21st birthday. I went to training and studied harder than I ever knew I could because I wanted this job SO SO badly. I have been flying for 6 months and it’s been amazing. I’ve worked with so many wonderful people, flown to so many places I never knew I’d love so much, and even taken a few trips for my own pleasure. With everything going on in the world right now I feel so lucky to have a job I truly love and enjoy every day. This too shall pass and we will be back to the awesome job we all love so much!”

“Becoming a flight attendant had been a career path floating around my head since I was 16. I ended up continuing my education in Tourism and Hospitality after high school, however, opportunities arose and I ended up starting a career in banking (talk about polar opposites). Though I was comfortable, the job itself was SO mundane. I needed adventure! I’ve NEVER been the type of person to sit in a cubicle from 9-5. Pushing sales and meeting quotas just wasn’t for me. I was sitting through a sales call one day and thought to myself “How did I get here?!” I realized the path I was on was not where I saw myself and I HAD to make some changes. All it took was a Google search and I ended up applying for an inflight position with Virgin America later that night. I wanted a complete shift in my life. At the time, Virgin America was likely to base me in either San Francisco or Los Angeles. Moving from New England to Southern California was exactly the drastic shift I was looking for. Within a few short months, I took the leap of faith, sold all of my belongings in Massachusetts and relocated to California to start Flight Attendant Initial training. This job has completely changed my life for the better. In just three short years I have met so many amazing people, explored so many different places, and learned SO much about myself. I have made so many lifelong friendships and countless memories. This career is ever changing and constantly evolving. From laughs, cries, to mergers & acquisitions. There is NEVER a dull moment. I can truthfully say I haven’t worked a day since becoming a flight attendant. I didn’t believe it at first, but aviation truly gets in your blood.”

“I worked at a courthouse for almost 20 years for a judge. I was a young mom and wife, I worked full time, got my degree, raised my children and had a great Monday-Friday life. But growing up I had always loved airplanes, and always thought how cool it would be to be a flight attendant. A few years ago my friend (a flight attendant with Alaska Airlines) and I were chatting, I told her I wasn’t happy going to work anymore, but I had so much seniority that I felt trapped. She said “Come fly with me, we are hiring!” I was shocked, I had thought that ship had long passed as I was over 40. She said “NO, they hire ALL ages!” So without telling anyone but my husband, I applied. It took 3 tries of applying and 2 in-person interviews, but finally I was invited to start training in February of 2018. It was literally the absolute BIGGEST leap of faith I had ever taken! I graduated in April of 2018 and haven’t looked back! I have grown so much as a person and have discovered so much about myself and my confidence. I have made absolutely the most amazing friendships with some of the most amazing people all while loving my passengers and flying all over the country. I feel blessed to have had 2 amazing careers in my life and I am proof that you can teach an old dog new tricks!”

“My boyfriend is my biggest supporter and my motivation. When he first met me, he said I'd be a perfect flight attendant – personable, positive, happy, and bubbly. He was in the army and is now going to school to become a pilot. At the time he said it I was like “nah.” I thought I was happy and content with my job like most people – thinking I'd work my 30 plus years at a company, retire, and be on my way to travel. At the time my heart was not in it, until someone years later had mentioned that I'd make a great flight attendant. I truly wasn't happy at my past job and then in August 2019 I thought, “why not?” Why wait to see the world? I don't want to be wondering "what if" so I applied to a few regional airlines and have been a flight attendant for 6 months now. Change is scary… but I did it!

I love being a flight attendant, meeting people from all different walks of life, and having a new adventure everyday of work. This is the best job I have ever had and I hope our regional airline makes it through this pandemic. With this job you meet some of the greatest people and I am grateful and thankful for everyone I have worked with. My best friend and I also have a pet accessory shop – @kahlsdesigns – where we have many giveaways, do charity fundraisers, and so much more. Check us out!”

“I planned to be a flight attendant for just one year.

My goal was to fly back and forth to New York City to network with publishers. (I had no idea how reserve worked – I thought I could pick all the NYC flights all the time!) I’d been writing books since college and I was in a rut. I figured I’d utilize free flight benefits, meet a bunch of cool people, and get discovered as a famous author…

I completed my initial training for AirTran Airways on May 21, 2010. Over the next few months, I discovered that I really, truly liked being a flight attendant. AirTran was acquired by Southwest in the fall of 2010. I quickly decided I wanted to stay in this industry. It was a wise decision; Southwest has been good to me, offering opportunities to serve on the Critical Incident Stress Management peer-support team. At Southwest, I’ve also been able to volunteer on rescue flights for animals. So far, I have brought 6 rescue cats and dogs to their “furever” homes.

I hadn’t expected to fall in love with this career; originally, it was a means to an end. Yet I found myself mesmerized by the magic of aviation. I have built lasting friendships with my coworkers. I have traveled to new cities I never would’ve seen otherwise. I have spent lots of time with family members who are spread out across the US.

Ten years later, I’m still writing…and still flying… and still loving every minute of the journey. My first published novel, Flight Path, took longer than I had hoped, yet I’m grateful for all the adventures that led me to this point in my life. I wouldn’t change a thing about this wild, wonderful experience, and I look forward to many more years as a professional jet-setter!”

“I always wanted to be a flight attendant ever since my first flight. I think I was about four or five years old when we went to go see my grandma by airplane. After that day I knew I wanted to be apart of this exciting industry. I got hired with a regional airline and enjoyed the flying a lot but knew I wanted to work on larger aircraft. After submitting my applications to various airlines I waited and waited. Then one day while working on my CRJ plane, a customer asked me for a cup of coffee. I took out a cup and poured his coffee but noticed the coffee pot had a different feel from what I was used to. I turned the coffee pot over and to my surprise it said Alaska. Being a Charlotte based flight attendant I was interested to think how could this little Alaska coffee pot make its way onboard my plane. Well, it sparked my interest to research Alaska Airlines. After reading about the airline and it’s history, I submitted my application and to my knowledge the application was only open for three days. Months later, I was hired, completed my training, and now flying for this amazing airline. I’m so happy to have seen that little Alaska coffee pot onboard my former airplane. Working for Alaska Airlines has given me great opportunity to travel to the great state of Alaska and see all of her beauty. Most of all, I love all of my new colleagues I am working with, they are the heart beat to why I love this job so much.”

“As a kid, I always loved airplanes and wanted to be a pilot. But you grow up and you do what you’re supposed to do – school, job, marriage, house, kids… divorce. Yet no aviation in my life. I became old, super fat, and unhappy. I didn’t even fit in an aircraft. But one day I decided to change that and make it happen. I stopped pleasing others and it was finally my time. I lost 225 pounds and went after my wings. Here I am today with the best job ever and I couldn’t be happier! I’ve met amazing people and traveled to places I’d never imagined. I don’t just have a job, I live my dream every single day.” Bennie T., United Airlines

“I was a customer service agent for an Australian carrier and I loved learning about the world of aviation from a ground viewpoint, but I would always be so mesmerized when I would see the international carrier flight attendants like British Airways and Japan Airlines striding through the airport while people turn their heads. I never imagined in my life working on an airplane nor being away from living on the West Coast. It was actually one of my coworkers who let me know that American was hiring for the first time in ten years, and I was dared to apply for a position as flight attendant. I didn’t expect to make it all the way to the interview, but when I made it to the face-to-face portion I thought wow, maybe this could be my life. I’ve always loved customer service, and always been intrigued by learning about other cultures. Low and behold, here I am six years later. I am blessed to have a career where I can immerse myself in so many different countries, learn about other cultures, and get to work with so many people from all walks of life.”

“Many times I am asked “why did I become a flight attendant?, and I never thought it would be such a hard question to answer.

I truly believe that everyone seeks to lead a fulfilling life, and in pursuit of that, we find ourselves asking “how can I obtain this fulfillment; that “happiness.” As far back I can I remember I had a desire to see the world. To experience different cultures, to try different foods, and to see the world in all its beauty.

In third grade, almost daily my classmate and I would look at the world map and point out which countries and cities we wanted to visit when we got older.

Paris, London, and Rome. China , Brazil, South Africa, and Australia.

The feeling of escape when you break the clouds and enter into a heaven like atmosphere is one like no other. Being able to serve others in a different capacity, making sure they given a world class experience, has all been fulfilling!”

“Relationship Goal: Stay Fly Together!

We meet and come in contact so many different people throughout our life time and so many stories along the way, some great, some not so great, some that change the way you view things, and some that teach you a lesson. The world of aviation is no different, in fact it’s even more potent. But that’s what we love about this career is no two days are ever the same. We met a little over 5 years ago on a trip we were working. I wouldn’t say it was love at first sight, I mean it was a high time, exhausting four day trip… just to paint the picture!

HER STORY: So we didn’t really notice one another right away. What I did notice is his work ethic and over all calm and reassuring demeanor that he had with the passengers- and that was attractive. One of those nights he decided to risk his “cool dude vibe” and call my room to ask me to grab dinner with him. We hit it off, and kept in contact after the trip was over. Eventually, I ended up falling in love with my best friend. •
HIS STORY: I noticed her and I thought she had the most stunning smile and personality. She was beyond amazing with the passengers and the crew – I knew she was going to be my person. One thing I will say, be with someone who motivates you to do better in life because relationships aren’t just about falling in love it’s about inspiring eachother to be better versions of yourselves – day-in and day-out – and she was just that person for me. I always put my best foot forward when at work, but when she‘s around she forces me to turn it up a notch.”

A quote from Sean D. Tucker best describes how we feel about our life in aviation: “What I love so much about flying is it puts you in the present. You’re not thinking about your bills. You’re not thinking about what’s going on. You’re elevated above all the problems on earth, and you’re in the present. Right now. Right here. And you’re living there (in the present) the whole time you’re flying.”

“My mom suggested I apply for US Airways as a flight attendant. This was my first time working in the airline industry, So I had no idea what I was walking into. What I love most is the sense of community. Also, this job freed me. For the first time I was around so many people that were themselves, unapologetically, and confident about being THEM. There are people that have inspired me to live in my truth that I’ll likely never encounter again. I’m forever grateful. I “came out” to my family after being surrounded by so many openly gay coworkers. Never telling them my story, but absorbing their confidence. Being a flight attendant for me is less about the “job” and more about the amazing, life-long impact on my life through connections. Lastly, without this job I wouldn’t have met my amazing partner, and if this career went away tomorrow I’d have a million things to be thankful for today.”

“Flying has always been my dream. I’ve been in this industry for roughly 2 years so far. Before I starting flying, I was a sales manager for a company in the hotel industry. You know… I had that kind of lifestyle. I got a degree in business administration in one of the most prestigious universities in Paris, started out my career following that life pattern. However, I wasn’t fulfilled nor rewarded.
One day I said to myself, “Ok… you got your diploma and stuff but hey, you’re not happy. I decided to fully commit to follow my dreams and that’s when I started flying. I simply love my job. The adrenaline that boosts up in your veins as soon as the engines roar upon take off, meeting up with my colleagues every day, and being ready for something new during my flights!”

“My road to becoming a flight attendant was what some would call an act of desperation. No matter what it was, it led me to my favorite adventure.
I started college in 2013 and as it is life happened. The person who meant the most to me, my grandmother, died in 2016 and to say the least I was lost. School became less and less of a priority and I was desperate for a change. Without telling anyone I began applying for airlines. I applied for any and all airlines accepting applications. I finally got interviews with Delta and American. It was only then that I told the people in my life what I was planning to do. When I went to my face to face interview with American I finally felt at home. I was unbelievably lucky to receive a Conditional Job Offer to attend training in just five short weeks. Those 5 weeks of waiting and preparing and the 6 1/2 weeks of training were by far some of the best weeks of my life. Training brought me my best friends, great experiences, and my wings.
These wings have taken me to over 10 countries, for leisure, and many others for work. These wings have taught me about love, life, the world and it’s people, and the skies. I’ve seen Mt. Rainer, the Grand Canyon, New York City, the Vegas Strip, and the oceans from the window of a plane. These wings have allowed me to see every corner of our beautiful country, all while getting paid. Most importantly, these wings gave me a sense of direction again. These wings don’t define who I am and they aren’t a personality trait, but I will not and cannot deny that these wings are a part of me.
Here’s to the people I’ve met that have become family, the places I’ve visited that have helped me grow, and a job that I wouldn’t trade for the world!” Krissy, American Airlines

“I started my career in aviation 15 years ago but it doesn’t feel that way. I still get excited about trips, destinations, and peers that I am working with. I’ve been with Delta for 9 years, previously with US Airways (now American), and before that for a regional carrier.

I enjoy what I do. I love my layovers, meeting people, and taking my time off to travel the world. Plus I get plenty of time to rest, too. It’s a wonderful lifestyle, but of course it’s not always perfect. Sometimes you have to deal with rude people, delays, reroutes, and so on, but at the end of the day it is still an amazing career. Before flying, I was working in a bank and got tired of the limited advancement opportunities. I’m pleased to say I found my happy place, so much that sometimes I even do little dancing videos! Life should always be fun!”

I started my aviation career on the ground with KLM in Amsterdam. Then I moved to Korean Air, Easyjet, and now at Norwegian! I started my aviation career on the ground as a check-in agent during an internship in Amsterdam the Netherlands. I knew I loved to travel and I loved the sky so shortly after I chose to become a flight attendant. Currently, I’m flying to the United States and South America from London, which I really enjoy! In the future, I hope to mix my flying career with recruitment or maybe even a ground instructor!

“I’ve been flying on JetBlue since I was just four years old. We have family in California and visit them every summer. My favorite memory while flying on Jetblue was when the flight was piloted by my dad, who has been flying for JetBlue from the very beginning. I knew there wasn’t a better career or airline for me, so I applied to be a flight attendant as soon as I was old enough!

The past five months have flown by (no pun intended!) and in a few short years, I hope to be one of JetBlue’s Airbus pilots. I’m very privileged to work at a company that promotes such advancement and I hope to be a part of this company for a very long time!”

“When I was a child, I would lay down in the back seat of my father's car so I could stare up at the tree tops and pretend that I was flying. Ever since I was 6 years old, I wanted to become a flight attendant.

But life happened.

I grew up, got married, had a family, got divorced. I worked most of my life as an interior designer and then the recession happened, too.
I lost my job and eventually my home. At the time my son was 15. I had him go live with my ex so he could finish high school while I moved to Utah with my oldest daughter. I spent 2 and a half years there working as a manager in a retail design store. My daughter lost her job and we came back to Washington. We were staying in the basement of a friend's house and trying to figure out what to do next.

One of my brothers encouraged me to let go of being a designer, because that was all I knew, and think about what I really wanted. I honestly hadn't thought about my childhood dream in forever. I told him I really wanted to fly. He gave me some money and said I should buy something nice for my interview.

So I chased that dream and got the job with Horizon Air. I was actually very surprised when I was offered the opportunity to train as a flight attendant for Horizon Air, the regional airline of Alaska Airlines. I love flying on the west coast! I have phenomenal coworkers and friends who welcomed me into this industry. I say all the time how much I love my job! The benefit of travel has taken me to places I could only have ever dreamed of. I am so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this incredible lifestyle. It only took me 50 years to get here! I sit in that jumpseat sometimes and still cannot believe that I actually became a flight attendant. Never give up!”

“I had the opportunity to work for airport operations many years ago with US Airways in BWI and from that moment on I knew that I needed to be on the other side – of an airplane, that is! It took me 10 years from that moment. I received no after no and kept applying year after year knowing that someday, someone would see something in me. It was something I knew I had, but they needed to see it, too. Well, in 2017, that day came when JetBlue saw the passion I had for the business. The rest is history! Two and a half years later, I still feel the same excitement on every takeoff and that relief after each landing. What I love most about my job is being able to make a difference in someone’s day. It doesn’t matter if it is saying ”Happy Birthday!” over the PA to an airplane full of people, or just giving a hug to someone on board that’s crying, it’s making the connection with just one customer that makes such a difference for me each flight. There is nothing more rewarding than a genuine “Thank You” for what you did for someone! It’s what truly makes me feel accomplished.”

“Born and raised in LA, I was in a rut. My friend was a flight attendant and he seemed so happy, and told me I would be great at the job. I didn’t take it seriously but still, I did my research. I went to an open call for flight attendants in LA for Republic Airline, and then for the call that I was hired. I had never really traveled before. I couldn’t afford it! But I was now heading to Indianapolis for three weeks of training! I was based in NYC by choice, because visiting there was a dream of mine, and I commuted from LA-NY for a year. I loved the job so much, it made me happy inside and out!

Unfortunately, I was finally in a good place mentally with work but the money wasn’t there. I lived on first class meals and going on dates for food!!! I applied to Virgin, Delta, American, and Southwest. I went to interview after interview with all of them and was denied by three carriers, back to back to back. I was so saddened by it that I almost didn’t go to my interview at Southwest. I wasn’t sure I could take another rejection but I flew to Oakland, dressed a little more comfortably, wore my hair down, relaxed a little, and had the interview that would change my life!

Fast forward to present day, I moved to Las Vegas (no more commuting), met my husband (I thought I was destined to be single forever), and had a beautiful baby girl! (Never imagined being a Mama!) Now, I’m going into my fifth year at Southwest and I am able to create the schedule I want to maximize a wonderful life at home. My husband and I have traveled the world, and my baby – almost 1 – has been on 16 flights, including trips to Mexico, England, and even has an upcoming trip to Paris and Budapest for the holidays. I took a leap of faith and changed my life for the (so much) better and the unimaginable! There really isn’t a better career I could’ve chosen for myself!”

“Growing up I was always fascinated with planes, and I knew I wanted to be in the air. That day came just about 3 years ago in February. I was given the opportunity to go to Indianapolis, IN for 3.5 weeks of intense training with Republic Airline. I began flying and I loved every single thing about what I was doing. I was FINALLY happy with my career.
Just a few months into flying, my husband was diagnosed with cancer. I was devastated on many counts, I didn’t know if I would still be able to fly. I needed to be home taking care of him and go back to working a job where I could make more money to pay the bills. But, my husband said no, he wanted me to continue to follow my dreams and we would make it work. That’s exactly what we did. We made it work.
Fast forward a few months, I found myself interviewing with the “Big 3” legacy carriers all within a few months time of each other. First United, then Delta, and then American. Strike 1, Strike 2, and then finally a home run. After many long months of working an endless amount of hours, trying to maintain my presence at home with a sick husband, and striving to find my forever home in the skies, it finally happened.
This career has changed my life in many ways. I love what I do and I love doing it.
Just remember, you never know what someone may be going through. Keep that smile going because it could make a world of difference.”

“I’m celebrating almost almost two years since I began the love triangle between me, the red metal bird and the sky that I call being a flight attendant. I have honestly enjoyed working as a flight attendant as compared to desk jobs I’ve had knowing that I can bring a smile to someone’s face.

Sometimes making someone smile is not always easy, it can take a mountain of behind-the-scenes tasks like waking up at odd hours, getting ready like it’s a wedding every single day, and making sure that the safety of our guests is of utmost priority. So next time you are on a flight, be nice to your flight attendant. Trust me, it will go a long way with us and we will make sure you have an even more wonderful flight.
It may be hard work, but we love it. For me, this job has changed my life in so many ways and I am forever grateful for everything that I have today. So, cheers to the life we lead between ARMING and DISARMING!”

“I have almost finished my first year as a Delta flight attendant and I am still just as excited as I was the very first day that I started flying! I became a Delta flight attendant after my third try applying with the company! I applied for another airline too, but turned down an offer after receiving an email of advancement for the Delta flight attendant position. I knew this was the airline for me after I had researched the company. I was amazed by Delta’s connection to so many great causes in the community. I knew I wanted to be a part of an airline that was passionate about giving back.
.
Each year during October, Delta promotes and donates to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation which is an especially important and personal cause for me. My Mom is a Breast Cancer survivor and 2019 marked her 10th year breast cancer-free! I appreciate Delta‘s support for Breast Cancer Research and other meaningful causes that make such a difference for so many people. You never know who’s life may change as a result, and I’m happy to play even a small part of that as a flight attendant.”

“I honestly love my job, and it took a lot to get to where I am today. I remember getting that call for the face-to-face interview like it was yesterday. At the time I was working 3 jobs. I felt lost, trying so hard to find my “purpose” in life. I was a closer at the restaurant I was working at and I felt my phone buzz in my apron pocket. I quickly ducked into the storage closet in the back and answered it. The guy on the other end immediately congratulated me and I remember closing my eyes and sobbing silently because I knew if I could get to the in-person interview that I would get the job. It just jolted me and saved me in every way a person could be saved.

I feel blessed every time I walk on that plane and every time I interact with a customer. I know how lucky I am and I will never forget that feeling after the recruiter asked where my nearest airport was as I was standing in that closet. That feeling is still with me 2.5 years later. We all come from somewhere! We all start somewhere! The feeling of flying for me is so incredibly freeing. I know I have the world at my hands and it’s an opportunity I wouldn’t trade for the world!” 📸 @bmillz, American Airlines

Working as a flight attendant was never something that ever crossed my mind. And I sure never thought that I, the rugby playing fitness enthusiast, would be that girl in the aisle demonstrating the life vest and passing out sodas at 35,000 feet… but here I am loving every moment of it! A little over three years into my career and now I can’t even imagine not working as a stew.

It all started about four years ago when I was getting bored with my nine to five in a job that felt like i was just coasting through life without much excitement. A former coworker randomly suggested that I apply to become a flight attendant as he recently switched into the profession. Without much thought I applied to a few different airlines with bases in places I wouldn't mind living. The interview process seemed to move quickly. Just like that, three months later I had finished training with Frontier Airlines and was ready to take on the friendly skies. I was so excited for what was yet to come that I forgot one small detail, I was afraid of flying! The more I learned about flying the easier it became. Over time my fear seemed to subside and now flying seems so natural to me. I still occasionally find myself looking back and thinking, “ Wow, I can't believe this is your life!” My flying career has been nothing shy of exciting in the short time I have been with the company. Traveling around the country as well as to Europe, and Central America have been some of my favorite memories. Working for a smaller airline has allowed me to work with the same group of flight attendants more frequently leading to some great friendships. My favorite part of the job is experiencing the pure joy and happiness of passengers who have never flown before and helping them create pleasant memories. Following this career path was the best decision I have made.

“It all started as a joke.

I was sitting at my friend’s kitchen table reading the “Help Wanted” section. Just the day before, my manager at work asked me to become the assistant manager. No interview required. The job was mine if I wanted it… but I didn’t. As much as I loved the job, I wanted to move on. I knew there was something else I was meant to do.

Then I saw an ad for Mesa Airlines. They were having an open house for flight attendants. I told my friend I was going to check it out. I didn’t even want the job, I just wanted to brush up on my interview skills. I knew nothing about the airline business. At the end of the open house. I was told I got the job and training would start in two weeks. I was shocked. This was a joke on my part.

Well, the joke was on me. I spent 9 years at Mesa where I met lifelong friends and have stories to tell for a lifetime. Flying was in my blood. I love how no flight is ever the same. I love how each crew member you you meet brings something different to the table. I love how much I have grown as a person. I just knew this was it for me, so I set my sights on flying for Southwest. I have nonreved on them for years to get to and from work, so why not try and work for them? They always have the fun loving attitude on the plane. I wanted to be apart of that!

Then, four years ago, I was lucky enough to make that happen. I attended a face-to-face interview where they saw my desire to work for this amazing company.
In March, I will start my 14th year of flying. This is by far the longest running joke ever.” 📸 @taintedsugar, Southwest Airlines

“Hi there! My name is Donovan and I am flying for KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, on both long-haul and short-haul flights. I knew from a young age that I wanted to become a Flight Attendant. But I was a bit ashamed of this wish. What would people thing about this? A guy that wants to be a stewardess?! Nevertheless, I knew what I wanted. On the road to do so, many people told me that I should have an option B. Because getting hired as a Flight Attendant at a legacy airline is very hard. But I never stopped dreaming. And then at the age of 24, the magic day came. I got to work for my dream airline! A whole new world opened up to me… And boy did I like it!

Karaoke in Taiwan, Shopping in Minneapolis, working on that tan during an 8 day layover in Luanda… or going crisscross through Europe to try a local delicacy in a different country every day. No day, no week, no month is the same!

Sometimes people ask me how much longer I am going to fly. Because it is not a job that you can do if you want to have a social life or even get a relationship.
Well Jenny, I’ll think about that question next time I am taking one of my friends to go sailing on the Panama Canal during a layover or enjoying my week off after a Buenos Aires rotation. This job gives you so much more than the salary at the end of the month!

For everyone who is thinking about maybe become a flight attendant, I would like to say: take the risk! Life looks a lot better from 39.000ft 💙”

“Ciao from Venice! As I’m writing this, I’m sitting alongside the canal with the warm sun on my skin and a cold spritz in my hand. La dolce vita, right?! I have been a flight attendant for over 6 years and it still blows my mind! In 2013, on a warm February day in Phoenix, my inflight trainer pinned those silver wings on me and I haven’t come down from the clouds since! My journey to become a flight attendant was unique. I accepted a customer service position with US Airways when I was 25 years old and spent two wonderful and challenging years working the gates and ticket counter at Hartford Bradley International Airport. But I was ready to be pushed out of the nest. I traveled to Phoenix to experience a brand new city and become a flight attendant for US Airways. Quickly after earning my wings I learned that we would merge with American Airlines and I couldn’t help but think of that phrase by Dr. Seuss, “Oh the places you will go!” The world became even bigger! I make sure to take advantage of all the opportunities this career has given to me. While I try to indulge more in the experiences on my layovers rather than shopping for souvenirs, one thing I have collected for a long time are postcards of the places I visit. Whether I’m in Venice or a beautiful small town in the Midwest, I grab a postcard and “journal” about each adventure. The stories I’ve collected on the back side of those postcards are stuffed into a bulging photo album. These postcards make up a beautiful collection of adventures that I will one day share with my family, recounting all of my experiences in the air and on the ground with this amazing career. I love my job and all of the people I’ve met along the way. The sky is the limit!” 📸 @panamcas, American Airlines

We got some great feedback from all of you after sharing our stories, so we decided it was time to share some of your stories! Starting off, this is Chandler. Here’s what she had to say: ✈️
“A dream? Definitely not. Before turning to the skies for a profession, I was working full time at a dealership, full time student, and living the single life. My grandmother, and great aunt worked for SWA for over 35 years, so my mother and I always had flown growing up. One day I found myself scrolling through social media seeing fellow friends travel, and thought, I wonder what if? After applying and completing the hiring process I had a decision to make. Do I pack up, quit my job, and take a chance? Or do I stay in a place that I am happy, but not fully satisfied? Can you guess what I chose? Truthfully, the skies needed me, and I needed the skies. The challenges I have faced thus far, have not only given me so many opportunities, but have also shown me the value of time, and respect. Not to mention how well I’ve learned to multitask school, work, and a record Rum & Coke making time for pre-departures. Ha! They say the people you meet in college are the ones who are in for the long haul, but I don’t think they ever knew that the ones you meet in the sky will forever be your angels. ❤️💙”
