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:

As a child, it never crossed my mind that I would get the chance to be a flight attendant as I’ve never been a fan of airplanes.

When I was 22 years old, done with college as well my Bachelor’s degree, I decided to submit for the position out of nowhere. I never knew how my life would be or how it would become. I never knew I would get to tell stories about my unique unforgettable adventures as a flight attendant. During the COVID-19 pandemic, I realized what it means to lose your “dream job” which is a complete wonderful lifestyle that only few get the chance to experience.

ELAL gave me the opportunity to discover myself, growing up strong and independent, while everything I do with a smile, I increase its value. It taught me how self appreciation and confidence are super important to improve my personality. I am grateful. Shokran!

Thanks for choosing Delta, my name is Sylvia and I’m going to be your flight attendant today.

Let me tell you about the story of a little girl who was TERRIFIED of flying on her first flight. This little girl was shipped halfway across the world to Taiwan the summer before she turned 6 years old. Her parents told her she would fly alone on a 13+ hour flight to a country where she didn’t speak the language to live with grandparents she barely knew for 3 months. When the little girl’s parents had to leave her at the gate, she tried to be brave but tears couldn’t help but escape her face. As she stood at the gate, a hand laced through hers. When the little girl looked up, she saw a beautiful Delta flight attendant smiling down on her and reassuring her that everything would be okay. Throughout the 13+ hour flight, the flight attendant gave her candy, toys, and made her feel safe. A memory she would cherish for a lifetime. Due to this experience, the little girl grew up hoping to become a flight attendant that would show others the Delta difference one day. That girl is writing this post today.

I believe this is the road God destined me to be on. I was one of the lucky ones that made it through 2020 hiring. I’m so thankful to Delta Air Lines for believing in me and when I wear my uniform, I carry my wings with pride.

Ever since 5th grade I wanted to be a Flight Attendant. Even though I was bullied for being the “weird airplane girl” in school (okay—I was obsessed).

I made it my mission from then on to do everything in my power to make sure I’d get the job. It helped that my mama supported me every step of the way even when I had friends and family who didn’t. She took my to my first F2F, bought me the clothes I needed and helped me in every way possible.

So to all the people who thought I was weird or crazy, here I am 14 years later working for an awesome airline and living my dream.

EVERY. SINGLE. DAY! I wake up wanting to go to work and loving every moment of it. I still can’t believe I get paid to do something I love so much!

During the 70s, my mom and dad had to flee Cambodia due to the civil war. They met in France and got married there. Then, I was born and raised in this wonderful country.

When I was younger, my mother told me about how her family and her luckily landed in Paris onboard that massive Air France Boeing 747. They were saved from war thanks to the French government. Even though she was only 10 years old, she recalled how friendly and sympathetic the crew was. At that time, my mom and her family left Cambodia with absolutely nothing. They were wearing flip flops, but arriving during cold winter ! At the end of the flight, they wanted to give back the blankets. However, « that charming blonde flight attendant » told them « Oh no ! Keep them ! You’ll be so cold otherwise ! ».

I was never supposed to become cabin crew. Indeed, I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Hospitality Management. When I started to think about becoming one, only one airline was in my mind : Air France.

Nowadays, Air France is very dear to my heart thanks to that story. I am proudly representing the French flag carrier that saved my fantastic mom and allowed me to do a job that I adore.

I am now 25 years old and have been in the galleys since 2017. It is sometimes very hard to cope with those sleepless nights or when jetlag hits you. Nevertheless, I have met incredible people with so many different backgrounds. I can’t wait to discover even more unknown places.

I grew up in a military family and flew back and forth across the country at least a few times a year. I took my first solo flight when I was 10 from San Diego to Miami to visit my grandparents. I felt so awesome. Some of my best childhood memories are the smell of the airport, sitting in the window seat, getting a Coke with the circle ice to wear as a ring (wouldn't recommend that now), and running across terminals to try and catch connecting flights. It was all exciting to me, and still is. I always thought it would be fun to be a flight attendant, but didn't take the thought seriously until my late 20's. After having a series of jobs after college that ultimately didn't fulfill me, I decided to apply to all of the airlines that were hiring. I was lucky enough to get on with the one I wanted. Five years later and it's still the best decision I've ever made. I've gotten to travel all over the world, meet the most amazing people, take the best vacations, and live in several new places. This job has afforded me a lifestyle that I never thought possible. Even though this year hasn't turned out like any of us wanted, I'm still grateful for it and love to see the flight attendant community band together and support each other. I included a photo of my niece and I – I took her on her first flight a few years ago and dressed us up to match. She loved it, and I hope she loves to travel as much as I do when she grows up.

My grandma raised me until three in Seoul, Korea. My parents in the US beckoned for me at three and put me on a plane all by myself at the time! (Yeah, you can get away with lots of crazy stuff back in the 80s.)

It was so traumatic being separated with my grandmother that I remembered that day and some parts of the flight. I also had recurring dreams later on to keep my memory fresh for the rest of my life.

I cried so hard on the flight that a flight attendant noticed me and tried to soothe me and play with me. There were a lot of Korean adoptions going on at the time, so she probably thought that's what was happening with me.

I will never remember her face, but I felt her in spirit during my life. In my 20s, I felt a strong inkling to become a flight attendant. I looked deep into myself of where this was coming from. I realized that I wanted to pay her forward and honor her through this career.

I applied to all sorts of airlines, but at my interview with United, I finally told this story. The interviewer and I were both welling up and she hired me on the spot.

It was difficult fitting into my family growing up, but I truly have found acceptance and healing with this airline family of mine. I truly wear my wings with pride. I will never forget that flight attendant that led me to this career and life!

This is my first year as a Flight Attendant. It's been a year, but I still can’t believe that I'm a Flight Attendant! This job was just a childhood dream but stayed with me. I realized in school that I'm not gaining height anymore. I knew then that there was no way I could be a Flight Attendant. I was already at the point in my life where I knew I wanted to be in the customer service industry, especially a job where I could use my Sign Language skills as well. But I had already lost hope and put that ambition aside that I would become a Flight Attendant.

I took Tourism Management courses in the Philippines, and which I want to clarify that Tourism Management is not just for people who want to become a Flight Attendant. I heard a lot of negativity or strong words from friends, strangers and even family members. This course help with careers on land, in the air, out to sea, or even in management.

I moved to the United States almost two years ago, and this big move that I made changed my entire life, and it all started by making impossible things possible. It is not easy at first, but when you love what you do, everything will follow, and everything will fall into the right place at the right time.

I'm writing this to prove to myself and to others that nothing is impossible. It doesn't matter how long it takes you to follow your dreams, but as long you trust yourself, you will get there.

When I was a little girl, I remember playing at my grandparents’ backyard, watching airplanes pass by. My grandmother would tell me that beautiful, smart ladies and boys worked there and could go anywhere in the world.

After finishing my college degree in Social Communication, Life would put me where I needed to be, so I applied for the position of Flight Attendant at Ryanair, in London. I fell in love with the job and for the first time in my life I was doing what made me happy and didn’t even know I loved: being there for people.

One year later, my grandparents were not in their best health so I applied for a transfer to Lisbon. It was denied so I came back to Portugal to work in a media company. Still, aviation was stuck in my mind and heart so I applied for TAP, and it quickly became my goal and my dream. My applications were not being answered, so I booked a trip to London with the little money I had and tried BA, where I was told I was not good for the job. After that, I applied for Eurowings’ Palma de Maiorca base but was advised to follow a plan B, as I had no profile for the job. A few weeks later, my grandfather called me. “You will make it. I love you”. Little did he know about these “no”s. Why would TAP, of all companies, chose me?

After the call, he passed away. On his funeral, as I was saying my final goodbye, I looked up to the sky and saw an airplane pass by. A couple of weeks after, TAP called me to do my interviews, and less than two weeks I was recruited!

My best friend from college became a United Airlines Flight Attendant after we graduated, while I finished my student teaching and worked four jobs to make ends meet. One miserably cold day in February she called me from Miami Beach and didn’t just rub in the fact that she had her toes in the warm sand in February, she described the job pay and benefits that were defined by the union contract. That’s all it took. I drove from St. Louis to Chicago the next day to interview with United and six months later I started my flying career. Although I have come to love flying, my first six months I suffered terrible motion sickness. It wasn’t the “magic of flight” that hooked me, it was the people on the jumpseat next to me. They taught me how to survive in those early days and also what it means to have each others’ backs. Getting active in the union was natural because it was about giving back to the people who really taught me how to fly in my life. #LaborDay is a time to celebrate these incredible people on the frontlines and this year it’s more meaningful than ever as we fight to keep all of us together with an extension of the CARES Act Payroll Support Program. We’re fighting right now to save each other because that’s who we are and what we do every day as aviation’s first responders. #ExtendPSP

I grew up flying as an Unaccompanied minor back and forth from Chicago to San Francisco every year since I was six. I’ve always been so fascinated with aviation and looked up to the flight attendants who would look after me in awe.

At the beginning of 2020, I was given the amazing opportunity to attend inflight training with United Airlines. I was a part of one of the last classes to graduate before the pandemic! (Hey class 1931!) I absolutely adore my job. It allows me to meet new people, experience different lifestyles and cultures, see my family on a regular basis, and be able to share those experiences with them.

It’s been an amazing journey even in the toughest times. I’m proud to put on my uniform, walk onto a plane, and do my job happily! There is not a day that goes by that I wish I was doing something else.

On October 1st, thousands of flight attendants and airline employees will lose their jobs and their healthcare during a global pandemic. We all deserve a fighting chance to keep our jobs, paychecks, and healthcare. That’s why it’s important to urge Congress to extend The Cares Act Payroll Support Program. Call and email your senators and representatives. The link in @twoguysonaplane’s bio is a pre-populated form asking congress to extend the CARES Act and is really easy to send. It will only take a second and could help thousands of people like me! Thank you for your help and support!

Growing up I always wanted to explore new places and see the world. I took a leap and applied for United. Little did I know an 8 week training would turn into a new life. I grew up in a small town in Oklahoma and after earning my wings was sent to Boston to start my journey as a flight attendant. The city life was such a change but I love a good challenge. Early flights to different cities, new friendships, becoming a world traveler was my mission. Flying the friendly skies at 35,000 feet was just a normal routine. I love the rush of take off and landing, turbulence at any moment, delays, sometimes not knowing where your destination may take you. But with each flight I would learn something new about myself. Helping people connect to family, becoming friends with a crew member or passenger, being that friendly face someone needed after a stressful time through security, it's the simple things in life that make the experience memorable.

When I was a little girl I always admired the planes flying over ATL. I would always say “One day I’m going to be on one of those.” After four years of applying, crying, hoping, and praying that I could make this dream come true, I finally got the chance! I’m so thankful I can live saying that I’ll never have to work again. Why do I say that? It’s because they say if you find a job you love that you’ll never have to work again, and here I am not working!

I have fallen in love with always finding new adventures. I feel pride when people ask me “What do you do for a living?” I love my job, my airline, and my coworkers.

I remember when I used to see flight attendants walking through the airport, I would feel something that I’ve never felt before. That was my calling. Today, I am walking through those same airports and down those same aisles. It is a different type of happiness, though, because now I have my own wings above my heart.

When I was a little girl my parents would send me to Colombia during the summers as an unaccompanied minor. I would fly Avianca and I thought the flight attendants were so glamorous and nice. I went to college and graduated but every time I’d get on a plane there was an excitement I didn’t get anywhere else.

At age 24 I applied to every airline I could think of. I was so excited when I was offered a spot in flight attendant training, and the crazy part is I found out the day before graduation that flight attendants get free flights as part of their benefits! People were shocked that I had really applied just for the job itself without knowing about this awesome perk.

8 years later I have visited almost every single continent (just missing Antarctica) and I don’t get tired of exploring the world.

COVID has disrupted the aviation world but it can’t keep us grounded forever! Flight attendants have a way of making the impossible work and we will survive this bump in the road.

I never knew being a flight attendant was my dream job. I thought I would do it for a year, travel, and go back to being an ultrasound tech. I come from a very small town outside of LA and never left home before this job, never spent more than a few days away from my parents before training, and did not have even one passport stamp.

I have been places not even my wildest dreams could have imagined. I always hoped to find truth in the saying, “When you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.” Being a flight attendant has allowed me to feel that on so many levels. I have fallen in love with jet lag, changing hotel rooms every night, early check-ins, big planes, new destinations, and always finding adventure no matter where I end up. I love my airline, I love my job, and I truly love my life. Hope to see you in the friendly skies soon!

I was born in a remote village in Nepal: Bhojpur, a mountainous municipality that can barely be reached by road. Nepal Airlines is the only way to reach the town expeditiously.

At 19, I left home and moved to the United States to study for my undergraduate degree. Thereafter, I moved to France not knowing a word of French. When I arrived at Charles de Gaulle Airport the only logos I could see were those of Air France. Air France jets were parked everywhere. It reminded me of my home country and Nepal Airlines. It was this experience of being immersed in the land of Air France that made me want to work for this airline.

When I investigated the possibility, I found that one had to be French or European in order to apply. Subsequently, I earned my bachelor’s in international business and my master’s in communication while I worked for Air France at JFK in New York, at CDG in Paris, and at La Compagnie boutique airline. I wanted to keep the spark alive and my hope that one day I would work for this airline as a member of its cabin crew.

There is an adage that states “Do what you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life.” After I received my French citizenship after a long wait, I applied to several airlines since the economy was doing well and companies were hiring. I applied to BA, EasyJet, Qatar, and Hainan and was offered a position at a few of these before I actually tried for Air France.

Air France was my dream job. I wanted to obtain the job at AF on my first attempt. I did pass my interviews, and now I am a proud member of an Air France cabin crew. I never gave up on my dreams, and I’m doing what I love.

Nepal Airlines nurtured my dream. Air France made it come true.

I always wanted to be a flight attendant from the moment I took my first flight. It was so cool to think about being away from home and traveling the world and get paid for it! I went through college and realized I wasn’t happy in what I wanted to do. Around that time, at age 22, I got diagnosed with Kidney cancer. I fought because I knew I was too young to go and I had not fulfilled making myself happy in any way. When I got clear tests back, I applied to become a flight attendant and got in with another company. After a few years with that company, I got the call with Southwest and went through training. I may be biased, but Southwest has been the best airline in the world. They truly care and treat you like family. You’re not a number, you’re a name. This company cares about every individual customer and employee. They do everything in their power to make sure we are happy. Not only has my dream of becoming a flight attendant come true, but I’ve been able to check off so many things on my bucket list and live my life to its full potential! I cannot wait to get back to traveling once this crazy COVID nightmare is over. Stay strong my Aviation brothers and sisters! We will come through even stronger and forever united by wings!❤️❤️

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!”

“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!”
