Becoming a Flight Attendant?

Hi guys, I'm 18 & in September I'm going to college to study Travel & Tourism, afterwards, I hope to become a Flight Attendant.

I'm from England, but if everything goes smoothly, I'm hoping to be living in Louisiana, USA, by 2021, anytime after next July.

So I'd appreciate if both British & American Flight Attendants could answer my questions.

What is the training/assessment process?

How long after becoming a Flight Attendant do you start long haul flights?

Do you have to be pretty to become a Flight Attendant? I have been told by people I'm pretty, but I don't believe I am and I have only ever seen pretty Flight Attendants?

What are the benefits? Discounted flights, etc?

Is it a nerve-wracking job? I'm a confident and outgoing girl, but it even seems nerve-wracking to me, especially things like forgetting the safety announcement routine?

LASTLY, GIRLS, MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION, DO YOU HAVE TO WEAR THIN HEELS? I CAN ONLY WALK IN CHUNKY ONES SO DO I NEED TO START PRACTISING IN THIN ONES? AND DO YOU NEED TO WEAR HEELS THE WHOLE FLIGHT?

Thank you, I hope you and your families are all well during this time:)

    Luck=Moloch=demon.Gov't is killing you with highfrequencyelectricity. Theotokos Virgin Mary gave prayers to "Schema-nun Antonia" on how to save aborted babies from hell. If you pray these prayers diligently, aborted babies are released from hell. On each painted nail there are forty demons. Smoking is censer to the devil.Using foul language calls upon Pagan deities (aka demons); Holy Spirit departs on seven meters. People who use drugs see demons who cleverly disguise themselves as ghosts and aliens.America will be last country to switch to Euro (antichrist's world currency). Contraceptives = abortion;using contraceptives for one year = five aborted kids.Miscarriages happen because of high heels; cesarean because of pants (second generation cesarean will be infertile).Unbaptized aborted/miscarried/unborn babies burn in hell until Final Judgement; if pregnant, keep the kid and deliver at home because kids are chippedusing IVs and vaccines in hospitals. Dentists and doctors chip patients secretly. Ultrasound leads to mark of the beast; don't do ultrasound, please. Abortion leads to breast cancer; a demon is released from hell for each aborted kid. Dogs can become possessed; don't keep dogs inside your home [Pelageya of Ryazan]. Walmart has technology to administer mark of the beast to those who have cat bacteria in their stomachs/brains; stay away from cats [Athanasius 3rd of Constantinople]. Next false flag is the Statue of Liberty. Above earth there is ice (dome); when rockets go up they bring ice down from upper sky to lower sky; ice stuck in lower sky will fall on us during Apocalypse. Earth is flat; earth stands on three stalactite pillars (The Most Holy Trinity); pillars stand on water at zero Kelvin; underneath this ice there is a bubble; and then the abyss. Zodiac is planetary prison of demons; don't believe in horoscopes or you'll exhibit the traits of the trapped demons. Most thoughts and dreamsare from demons; demons never do good. Sleep fully clothed; pray the Jesus prayer. Pray to your guardian angel to have normal sleep. Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov was the last prophet before Apostle John (who wrote the Book of Revelation), Enoch, Elijah, resurrected Seraphim of Sarov, and resurrected Sergius of Radonezh will preach against the antichrist. Humans were created about 7530 years ago. Birds participate in time creation. It's a sin to kill birds. Dinosaurs live under our level; they will get out through sinkholes and lakes; to kill them, go for their nerves. Save the birds; but kill the dinosaurs. First dinosaur will come out of Volga River in Russia. Scientists don't see dinosaurs under our level because of radiation. Sinkholes happen because people dig for resources underground and because earth is heating up. Demons grow human skin (from a sample taken during abduction) and put it on so as to look like us. Demons will invite peopletobehealedinsidetheirUFOs; those who go will be like zombies after. Gov't provides demons with diamonds and allows demons to abduct people. If you're being abducted, slowly pray the Jesus prayer. Don't panic. Demons use diamonds and souls to power their UFO craft. The bigger the diamond, the more it lasts. Demons have 4 UFO bases: 1)moon 2)inside fake mountain Kailash (Tibet) 3)in lake Baikal in Russia 4)in Atlantis which is underneath double ocean floor of Mariana Trench (Pacific Ocean). There are no aliens. Nobody lives on other planets. Airplanes that go down are hit by demons because they need the airspace to fight Jesus. Antichrist is pale with red eyes. He's possessed by Satan since he's 12 years old [Lavrentiy Chernigovskiy]. He flies super fast; deceived people will say: "Christ is here; Christ is there" when he's flying from one city to the next very fast. He wears gloves to hide long nails. He'ssurrounded by demons who appear as angels of light. Antichrist will trick people that he can do mountain moving and resurrection using holograms/hypnosis; fire from the sky is real because of pollution gases in the atmosphere. Antichrist will have food only for 6 months; then he will feed his 666ed people flourfrom mashed up turtles (Tavrion Batozskiy), but this won't be enough because 666ed people are 10 times as angry and 7 times as hungry as normal people even though 666ed people became shorter (3-4 feet tall = 80 - 120 cm)because nanochips do function of organs (organs diminish) [Nilus Myrrhgusher]. If you have a lot of nanochips in your forearm, then you will not be able to make proper Orthodox sign ofthe cross (last mercy for you will be to cut yourforearm off). Nanochips are sprayed by the gov't usingchemtrails; they're also in gov't food andmedicine; so, eat food from your own garden. In case garden is destroyed by ice from the sky, have chickens for eggs and goats for milk (Paisios). Lipstick contains cells of abortedfetuses, dog fat, and placenta; human fleshis in McDonalds, Pepsi, toothpaste, antiaging,anticancer, vaccines, perfume, etc.; that's why you should not be using anything that modern society has to offer. You're better off hiding within a 10-15 people group in order to escape Apocalypse. During Apocalypse,Christians will eat dirt from under pussywillowtree as it's filled with tears of Theotokos VirginMary; this water will flee if a 666ed person tries to get it. Barcode is Druid black magic curse; QRcode is Mayan curse; when food is scanned, it becomes dead because laser is a substance from demons. Don't go into a UFO to be healed by demons. Unforgivablegreen666 is given by isotope rays on wrist or forehead when people stretch hands to receive small plastic grey card with no name on it (WorldPassport). It doesn't just have to be during this procedure (could be anything you sign up for or anywhere where there is a secret scanner); biometrics (fingerprints, eyescan) or getting picture for passport are very dangerous because they could mark you secretly. GabrielUrgebadze said thattheydoitonindexfingerwhenthey scan your finger. Basically, trytoavoidnewdocuments at all cost. Policewill microchip and isotope ray people on highways. Chipped people will be influenced by computers to take grey plastic card; but when they do, greenmark by isotope rays is given on forehead/wrist. Food stores will isotoperaypeopletoo. Antichrist will also release prisoners/insaneasylumpeople tomarkpeople. Reject 666 at all cost because it leads to permanent hell. If you're about to be marked, pray the Jesus prayer. Hide with OrthodoxChristians to escape 666; leave all electronics behind so that antichrist's minions can'ttrack you; burn documents because they're fromSatan. TheMostHolyTrinity gives you a name during baptism; devil gives an antiname during antibaptism (ex. SocialSecurityNumber). People who die with these Satanicdocuments go to concentrationcamp in hell to await FinalJudgement; once the BEASTComputer is burned down, souls will be released for FinalJudgement. That's why you should give back documents of your deceasedrelatives back to the gov't so that the gov't cancels these digital antichristiannames given during antibaptism by the beastsystem; or just burn thesedocumentsbecause gov't could get upset and could send demons to mark you because of this outright act of defiance. Prophecy from halfamillennium ago describes FinalJudgement like this: Jesus was very upset with people who had littleboards (plasticcards) in their hands because they wanted discount from the antichrist. Givetocharity in the name of ArchangelMichael; he rescues people from temporaryhell twice a year [at midnight September18-19 and similarly on November20-21; pray at these times on your knees remembering the deceased by names (adding "and relatives by flesh up to Adam") so that they arerescued if they're in hell] (orbrings them up alevel, that is, to a level with lesspunishment;eventually, people arefreed). Feed thepigeons;when pigeons bowdown, people are savedfrom temporaryhell. It's a big sin to rememberthe deadwithwreaths (because demons put these wreaths on their necks if they're inhellwith theirwrists tied up behind their back while hanging by their wrists), meat,alcohol,sweets,andworldlymusic. Demons printiconsof saints/crosses/8sidedstarofTheotokosVirginMary in newspapers/products so that you throw these newspapers/products in the trashblasphemingthesesaints. Crosses on solesofshoesandbackofpants are blasphemy. Demons makecarpets with crosses and put them on sidewalks so that people walkoncrosses. Playingcards mockhow Jesus sufferedonthecross: clubs(cross on which Jesus wascrucified), diamonds (fournails Jesus was crucifiedwith), hearts (sponge with vinegar that Jesuswas given to drink),spades (spear with whichJesus waspierced).Cremationisdevilworship; onlyblasphemers suchasLenin should be burned; if Lenin is buried, earth will be polluted, and China will attack Russia because of this. AfterChinaattacksRussia, RuskiOrthodoxTsar (shown by resurrected SeraphimofSarov) willcome topowerinRussia;this Tsar will slay traitors insideChurch andgov't; asaresult, Russia will be the only country not under the antichrist.Ecumenism=263heresies;each heresy leads to hell. In 2006 in Moscow (that's why Moscow will sink),representatives from most religions signed a document where it says that all religions worship the same SupremeBeing [aka thedevil]. Priests who participate in ecumenism will have Pagans walking on theirheads in hell. ArkhimandriteAntoninKapustin left a prophecy that Church of All Russian Saints in Gorny Monastery, EinKarem, Israel will be blessed by forerunner of antichrist; pseudoPatriarchKirillofRussia and MarkofBerlin blessed thischurchin2007.

  • Process: training length depends on the airline.

    Long haul: all depends on the airline and seniority.  FA's with more seniority get first crack at flight schedules so you may get stuck with shorter flights.

    Pretty: Technically not a factor.  

    Benefits: Most FA's are part of a union which will provide for better healthcare/dental, discounted/free air travel are the two big ones.

    Nerves: You're trained on procedure.  A lot.  Can't get it right?  You flunk out.  

    Shoes: Airlines will have specifics on what shoes are/aren't permitted.  Safety being the biggest priority.

    Suggestions: Kat Nesbitt and Jetting Julia are both flight attendants with YouTube channels.  Watch their stuff.  They do a lot of behind the scenes stuff.

    You cannot work in the US.  Or are MARRYING a US citizen?  Louisiana has one of the lowest standards of living in the US - and seems to have annual destruction from flooding, hurricanes, etc.  It does not have an international airport.  You clearly have no idea how any of this works, in the theoretical, or the practical, of how the travel industry is working NOW.  You might try British Air lines, maybe Aer Lingus (are they still is business??  Never hear of them.). So do more research, make less fantasy assumptions.  Walking in heels is the least of your problems.

    I would not even think about it any more. The airlines are laying off thousands of experienced flight attendants, so you chances of getting hired in the next few years are zero.

    Why do you imagine you'll be living in the USA? You won't get a US visa to be a flight attendant. 

  • 5 months ago

    You do not have to be pretty to be a flight attendant in the US. They stopped using that as a criterion in the 1970s. The airlines have been sued over age and weight discrimination. What you have to be is smart and capable. 

    Now- your biggest problem is that no airline is based in Louisiana. You can live somewhere other than your base, but it makes life harder, as you have to deadhead on flights to get to your base to pick up the flights you're assigned to, and you don't get paid for those hours of working. So you might consider living in one of the base cities. Delta is based in Atlanta. American has bases in Nashville and Dallas. Many flight attendants and pilots start out with the small "express" airlines that are affiliated with a larger airline, and do short flights for a while before gaining seniority and getting to choose the longer flights. You should go to the airline web pages and look for information on how to apply. Include the smaller airlines like Allegiant and Southwest.

    Hello Mollie,

    I work part-time at an airport and had some conversations with flight attendants.

    Looks is one thing, but one of the biggest things that the airlines will look for is customer service experience. A suggestion is to take a part-time job involved with customer service while attending school. This will add to your resume (along with some extra cash in your pocket). 

    Expect the interview to include hypothetical situations in which you have to answer on how you would respond. 

    Utilize Youtube to give you further information on what to expect with training..

    Be prepared to work long hours and the job can be highly stressful at times. Sometimes it takes only one unruly passenger to ruin your day.

    Regarding benefits and perks, it varies from airline to airline. Enquire about it during the interview process.

    Godspeed on your endeavors, madam.

    Each airline has their own requirements and their own training school, so there are no 'universal' answers.  SO, if you don't like the answers you are getting from Airline A, talk to Airline B.  GOOD LUCK !!!
