The Highs And Lows Of Working As Cabin Crew

Posted in Cabin Crew ArticlesNo comments

There are many highs to being a cabin crew member and most recruited cabin crew would say that they defiantly outweigh the lows. So what are the highs to working as cabin crew:
No two flights are same as you meet different people everyday. These range from baby’s and right up to the elderly and passengers can be fun.
You can get cheaper flights for friends and family depending on the airline, you will be amazed how quickly your friends come out of the woodwork! Imagine going to Tenerife for a couple of days, just to top up your tan.
If you fly to a non EEC country then as crew you can purchase your duty free including cigarettes, booze and perfume, a great money saver.
You find you get more time off than any other job you have done before as you may work for 4 or 5 days and then have 3 days off, sometimes even 5 if you have been put on standby and have not been called in to work!
When working as cabin crew you become more confident and have a great sense of achievement.
Now for the major perk to being cabin crew. For the lucky few that get long haul flights then you will normally stop over in the country you are going too. You stay in 4 or 5 star hotels and get the time off when you are there. As well as all this you also get paid for it. Imagine going to Florida and having 3 or 4 days off to go round Disney World!
Well with any job there are a few lows but as you can see not too many:
Well you are expected to work any day of the year and at any time. So your weekends are will now be banished forever. You may have to work on your birthday or even Christmas day and sometimes new years eve.
It can be tiring work as you can be delayed and the days can be long. If you are use to the nine to five then this may not be the job for you as you will work on night flights and weekends.
