It's the little details that will make or break you

Airlines have been known to have applications to be filled out at the interview. If you forgot to bring your pen (REMEMBER: Bring 2 pens!!), you can ask the interviewer for one, and they will give you a pencil. Later, when they're going through the applications, they will throw out all the ones filled out in pencil, as this proves you're not good at planning ahead for a given situation. (SEE?? =) )

Are you friendly and talkative, or are you shy and keep to yourself? Your posture and how you sit, walk and talk will all be checked. This information may be reported to the interviewers before you enter their office. You will always want to be on guard at all times, not just the time you are infront of the interviewers.  Are you slumped against the wall or slouching in your seat while waiting to be called? Is this what would you consider "professional flight attendant" demeanor? Your interviewers will not! Be other airlines for that matter. Always be upbeat and positive as possible. Even if it is allowed or permissible, don't smoke during the interview process (Hello???)

You will want to bring to your interview the following items:
  • Passport
  • A copy of your birth certificate
  • Copies of your resume (atleast 2) with your 2 2x2 photographs, including a full length
  • A copy of the information needed on the application (varies)
  • Letters of reference
  • Pen (2 or more!!)
  • Watch ( just goes to show that you're professional)
  • WATER & Sumtin' to munch when you're about to faint! :) ) (you'll thank me later)


As an aspiring air cabin crew, you should:
  • be tactful but assertive
  • enjoy teamwork
  • be calm under pressure and in emergencies
  • be confident, friendly and good with people
  • be sensitive and reassuring towards people who are anxious or upset.
  • be confident with money, including foreign currency

What questions do they ask at Flight Attendant Interviews:
  • Why do you want to be a flight attendant?
  • Why would you make a good flight attendant?
  • Would you be willing to relocate?
  • How do you handle stressful situations?
  • What would you do if you saw one of your colleagues being deliberately rude to a passenger?
  • What does the word uniform mean to you?
  • What does safety mean to you?
  • What is customer service to you?
  • Describe the way you work under a tight deadline or time restraint?
  • Tell me about a time when you had to make a quick decison.
  • How well do you work as a team player?
  • How do you you take direction?
  • What are your strengths and your weaknesses?
  • What is the difference between good customer service and excellent customer service?

Few pointers and things they look for in a cabin crew

  • Don't try and be a leader, they are looking for team MEMBERS not managers. When you try to be bossy you will surely be cut off from the selection.
  • Be yourself, they always dislike people who are fake.
  • Make sure you dress accordingly. 
  • In the group exercises, try to have a useful input into the discussions, don't be too overbearing and loud. make comments and praise/discuss other peoples comment to show the recruiters that you are listening.
  • Always make eye contact with who you are speaking to, and when listening.
  • Remember, customer service is the key they look for so always make sure that your answers are logical, yet customer focused.

Fly High!

Dreamers, remember "Time will come it's your time to shine!"

Good Grooming

Dress appropriately. You are competing with hundreds of other applicants for this job, not only in your city, but in other cities as well. So do all you can to improve your chances and maintain an edge over others. Take no chances - usually it doesn't matter how well spoken you are' if you don't look professional, the recruiters won't even give you consideration.

For women:

In choosing accessories, shoes must be:

The closed-heel type. No sandals, wedges, mocassins or clogs. Color complementary to your outfit and are neatly polished, without any worn-out heels or toes.

For both men and women, grooming is of utmost importance. It doesn't matter how impeccably you are dressed; if your grooming is careless, you won't get a second look. Women, your make-up must be in colors becoming to the complexion, and extremes are prohibited. A nice smile and fresh breath are important. And if you have significant skin problems or your teeth are in need of repair, get professional help. People can interview well in every other way, but if teeth are downright offensive to look at, it may put the interviewer of enough to disqualify them.

It goes without saying that your hair should be well groomed. If necessary, pay a visit to the hairdresser before the day of the interview. Hair should be: 

Arranged in an attractive, businesslike style, keeping with current professional standards. Style and color is becoming to your facial features and skin coloring. Clean, in good condition.

For Men; No wash-and-wear, wet-look or spikey styles. No roots showing. No extreme styles.

Hands and nails should be clean and neatly manicured. Nails should be well shaped, all the same approximate length, and should not extend beyond the fingertip more than 1/4 of an inch.

Keep jewelry to a minimum. Only one bracelet is acceptable, along with a professional looking watch.

No heavy perfumes.

What to expect from Flight Attendant Training

$$Anxiety about new-hire flight attendant training is common once the euphoria of getting hired wears off. Don't worry! You will be trained by professionals on everything you need to know. Once hired, candidates must undergo a period of formal training. The length of training, ranging from 4 to 7 weeks, depends on the size and type of carrier and takes place in the airline's flight training center.

Flight attendant training usually takes place at the airline's training center and typically lasts from three to six weeks. Classes are usually made up of between 30 and 100 trainees and run from approximately 8:00AM to 4:30PM. Airlines that do not operate flight attendant training centers generally send new employees to the center of another airline. Airlines may provide transportation to the training centers and an allowance for board, room, and school supplies. However, new trainees are not considered employees of the airline until they successfully complete the training program. Trainees learn emergency procedures such as evacuating an airplane, operating emergency systems and equipment, administering first aid, and water survival tactics. In addition, trainees are taught how to deal with disruptive passengers and hijacking and terrorist situations.

New hires learn flight regulations and duties, company operations and policies, and receive instruction on personal grooming and weight control. Trainees for the international routes get additional instruction in passport and customs regulations. Other subjects covered during flight attendant training typically include: City Codes, 24-hour clock, Time computations adding/subtracting hours and minutes), Airline terminology, Cabin service, Company policy and procedures, Aircraft Familiarization, First Aid/CPR, Ditching, Evacuation drills/commands, Security/Bomb threats, Uniform regulations, FARs, Bidding/Reserve, Specific aircraft training, non-specific aircraft training and much more. Towards the end of their training, students go on practice flights. You can also expect about 4 training flights with real passengers where you will perform your duties under the supervision of working flight attendants. Generally you will be given tests after each segment of flight attendant training. Passing grades are typically 90%. Some airlines allow retakes. Some do not. It might also be helpful to practice airport codes (pick up a schedule) and practice adding time. You can check your answers by using the hours and minutes calculator that we have added to the site. During the second or third week, you will be asked to fill out your "dream sheet" for base assignments which will be awarded later in the program, depending upon the needs of the airline. After completing initial training, flight attendants are assigned to one of their airline's bases.

Additionally, flight attendants must receive 12 to 14 hours of annual training in emergency procedures and passenger relations. What about Flight Attendant Training Academies? We receive quite a number of emails asking whether it is beneficial to attend a flight attendant training academy. We do not recommend attending any of these schools and we have no significant proof that it helps in the application and hiring process. These schools can cost as much as $3,000 for several weeks of intense training, but much of the training is not airline specific, so procedures you might be learning will not be the same as you will learn in your airlines new-hire training program. We also have questions about what type of college one should attend to be better prepared for the flight attendant profession. Our answer here is that although a college degree is not required by most airlines, the years you spend there could work in your favor (even if you dont graduate). That is because some airlines will substitute up to two years of college for ones lack of customer service experience.

If you were to pick a major or course of study, we would recommend becoming fluent in a second language. That is the number one attribute that will put you head and shoulders above the competition at many airlines. The bottom line here is that airlines will train you in everything you need to know, so there is no need to try to do it on your own. The hardest part of the job is getting hired and anything you can do to tilt the odds in your favor will help. A second language, customer service experience, or prior flight attendant employment are all positive attributes.
