									Would	
  I	
  Be	
  a	
  Great	
  Fit	
  as	
  a	
  Flight	
  Attendant?	
  
	
  
Often	
  times,	
  being	
  a	
  flight	
  attendant	
  seems	
  like	
  a	
  perfect	
  way	
  to	
  escape	
  the	
  chains	
  of	
  
the	
  world.	
  You	
  get	
  lots	
  of	
  travel,	
  you	
  get	
  to	
  meet	
  a	
  lot	
  of	
  people,	
  and	
  you	
  get	
  tons	
  of	
  
vacation	
  time.	
  What	
  could	
  go	
  wrong?	
  Well,	
  many	
  people	
  that	
  ultimately	
  decide	
  to	
  
pursue	
  the	
  career	
  end	
  up	
  either	
  failing	
  to	
  break	
  in	
  or	
  dropping	
  out	
  because	
  it	
  wasn’t	
  
what	
  they	
  had	
  expected.	
  In	
  this	
  article,	
  we’ll	
  help	
  you	
  decide	
  if	
  being	
  a	
  flight	
  
attendant	
  is	
  really	
  for	
  you.	
  
	
  
Are	
  you	
  physically	
  capable	
  of	
  being	
  a	
  flight	
  attendant?	
  Many	
  airlines	
  have	
  a	
  
minimum	
  height	
  requirement,	
  usually	
  denoted	
  by	
  an	
  ability	
  to	
  reach	
  the	
  overhead	
  
bins.	
  Also,	
  you	
  must	
  be	
  able	
  to	
  perform	
  repetitive	
  physical	
  tasks	
  throughout	
  the	
  day.	
  	
  
You	
  can	
  see	
  this	
  in	
  action	
  at	
  flight	
  attendant	
  school	
  in	
  Utah	
  You	
  should	
  also	
  have	
  
plenty	
  of	
  endurance,	
  given	
  that	
  some	
  work	
  days	
  last	
  for	
  quite	
  a	
  while.	
  
	
  
Does	
  your	
  family	
  situation	
  allow	
  you	
  to	
  work	
  in	
  this	
  job?	
  Sometimes,	
  people	
  who	
  
have	
  a	
  family	
  try	
  to	
  balance	
  both	
  work	
  and	
  family.	
  It	
  usually	
  doesn’t	
  work	
  because	
  
the	
  time	
  required	
  to	
  be	
  a	
  flight	
  attendant	
  is	
  so	
  sporadic.	
  Sometimes	
  you’re	
  at	
  home,	
  
often	
  times	
  you	
  aren’t.	
  Sometimes	
  you’ll	
  be	
  at	
  flight	
  attendant	
  school	
  in	
  Utah.	
  In	
  fact,	
  
you	
  really	
  only	
  get	
  to	
  stay	
  at	
  home	
  for	
  maybe	
  1-­‐3	
  nights	
  at	
  a	
  time.	
  Take	
  that	
  into	
  
consideration.	
  
	
  
Finally,	
  evaluate	
  if	
  your	
  personality	
  lends	
  to	
  the	
  flight	
  attendant	
  position.	
  Some	
  
people	
  are	
  naturally	
  optimistic,	
  very	
  positive,	
  and	
  very	
  outgoing.	
  Some	
  people	
  are	
  
less	
  talkative,	
  a	
  bit	
  more	
  reserved,	
  and	
  require	
  some	
  prying	
  to	
  get	
  out	
  of	
  their	
  shell.	
  
Being	
  real	
  with	
  yourself,	
  which	
  one	
  are	
  you?	
  Certainly,	
  being	
  the	
  second	
  in	
  no	
  way	
  
prevents	
  you	
  from	
  being	
  a	
  flight	
  attendant,	
  but	
  it	
  definitely	
  makes	
  the	
  process	
  
harder.	
  It’d	
  be	
  more	
  difficult	
  to	
  schmooze	
  your	
  way	
  into	
  the	
  job	
  during	
  interviews	
  
and	
  meet-­‐and-­‐greets.	
  It’d	
  also	
  be	
  more	
  difficult	
  to	
  flatter	
  your	
  passengers	
  with	
  
warmth	
  or	
  whatnot	
  during	
  the	
  flight.	
  
	
  
No	
  matter	
  what,	
  be	
  sure	
  to	
  carefully	
  evaluate	
  your	
  options	
  before	
  you	
  decide	
  to	
  
pursue	
  the	
  career.	
  It	
  takes	
  a	
  lot	
  more	
  than	
  simple	
  on-­‐paper	
  qualifications	
  to	
  make	
  
someone	
  a	
  great	
  flight	
  attendant.	
  Don’t	
  shoot	
  yourself	
  in	
  the	
  foot	
  by	
  making	
  an	
  
uninformed	
  decision.
