Cabin Crew’s Story: What We See Vs What We Miss

Great allowance in the out ports Vs Greater temptation to spend it

Being an avid air traveler, one of the most significant “entertainments” is the flight attendants (For me!). To observe them in flight is part of my routine during my up-in-the-air moment. And it makes me wonder about the nature of the job even more. So, I decided to mingle myself with them and get the insider stories.

Great bargain with no savings!

One of cabin crew's greatest temptation is traveling to places like this 🙂

Cabin crews have to work hard to fit into the uniforms.
Häagen-Dazs® is a sin 😥

Has the summary above changed your perception of them? Do you want to be flight attendants? I guess I will leave it open ended from here on……

    there are no jobs that could be hard to do if you can enjoy it well. If you love what you do, then it is no longer work 🙂

    dear angel, actually most of cabin crew are not allowed to wear heels more than 5cm. the back pain also goes to male crew yang ga pake heels.. basically work as a flight attendant lebih harus extra taking care of ourself, eat healthy food, work out and enough sleep is the main key. ^^ happy flying for all fellow crew and keep trying for all wannabe
