Testimonials & reviews

What They're Saying

Although it is known that each company looks for a certain pattern from the people employed, in order to preserve the uniqueness of its crew and the services offered, the role of a flight attendant should be basically the same, regardless of the company you fly for. First of all, a flight attendant must show passion for the job she does, have an empathic nature, show a spirit of sacrifice and be willing to play the role of savior, in case face limit situations. A flight attendant must show professionalism, team spirit and good communication with the rest of the crew. She must always be kind to passengers, who can approach her for various problems. She must be patient, understand their sometimes exaggerated fears, panic attacks or anxiety that can often turn passengers into irritable, uncooperative individuals, perhaps even repulsive to the attempts of help offered by those around them. For this reason it is particularly important that she has experience in customer relations, experience that can help her overcome situations of this kind during the flight.

Taking into account the fact that the flight attendant will be the ambassador of the company she works for, she must always look flawless, be rested and well-groomed.

Another mandatory requirement that must be respected is punctuality, a stewardess risking losing her job if she is late for a flight, proving in this way superficiality and frivolity.

She must have strength of character and calm the heated spirits that can disturb the peaceful atmosphere during the flight, assuring the passengers that they will arrive safely at their destination.

The minimum age for employment as a flight attendant differs from one company to another, being between 18 and 21 years old, and the maximum age being generally around 40 years old.

People who want to take up this job must have a baccalaureate degree and bring proof of medical skills (medical certificate JAR-FCL 3, class 2 - neurological, ophthalmological, ENT, audiometric, gynecological, cardiological, etc.) and must also pass control of balance and resistance in special conditions, which is done with the gyro-chair and the barocamera.

The exam itself consists of the English language test, written and oral, and a test of the geography of Romania and Europe, the minimum grade for admission being 7, for all tests.

Apart from the rather high costs that this job entails, namely the completion of a theoretical course, worth about 2000 euros, which includes 231 hours (including the end-of-course exams) and takes place in about 8 weeks, must be paid and the hours spent with the flight simulator, around 500 euros, the training flight hours amounting to 1000 euros and in addition the license exam, around 100 euros.

Regarding the physical requirements, the minimum limit varies from one company to another, but in general it starts from 1.58 meters to 2.12 meters on spikes, hand up.

Thus, if in the case of the Wizz Air company, the minimum height for women applying for such a position is 1.65 meters, in the case of the Swiss, it can decrease to 1.58 meters. Lufthansa company representatives claim that their flight attendants have a height between 1.58 meters and 1.75 meters, and the Dutch from KLM want their maximum height to be 1.85 meters requesting that before the employment interview , women should not wear heels to meet this standard.

The first 6 months after employment is the trial period for flight attendants.

Among the conditions imposed for obtaining the position, the future flight attendant must be able to swim 50 meters by herself fully clothed and not have panic attacks even in extreme cases.

In addition, it is also important to mention that most of the airlines, both from Romania and abroad, are quite strict with future employees, forbidding them to have any kind of tattoos and piercings or at least, not to expose them during working hours.

Although in general the airlines are quite strict with the personnel they recruit, there are also certain foreign airlines that recruit people without a license, only on the basis of their fulfillment of certain conditions, providing the trainees with both theoretical and practical training practice.

In addition to the nice parts that this job entails, namely, the fact that it is not a monotonous job and you can visit places, maybe inaccessible sometimes, due to high financial costs, this job also involves certain disadvantages and sacrifices that you have to bear, if you choose this path.

Such a job requires the person employed in such a position to sacrifice the time spent with the family, to be always away from their loved ones, this implies a rather large nervous consumption and practically giving up a personal and family life.

In addition, their physical and mental health is endangered by the demanding work schedule and frequent time zone changes.

This job also requires a good mastery of emotions and inner feelings. Regardless of whether she is faced with an unpleasant or traumatic situation that can even affect those close to her, the flight attendant must show strong self-control, patience and interest in all the problems raised by the passengers, leaving personal worries and problems in the last place .

Among the advice given by flight attendants to those who want to follow this profession, we mention:
"I wish those who really want to spend their time among the clouds to have a lot of patience and perseverance. It would be advisable for them to see beyond the cool image of flight attendants and realize that it is a stressful, risky and tiring job at times. It is a job that forces you to stay away from your loved ones for a long time and requires you to sacrifice the holidays. In the end, I would suggest them to carefully analyze their life style. In order to resist and succeed in this career, it is advisable to be a little narcissistic, sociable, well-informed, communicative, empathetic" (Otila Zamfir - Oman Air)
