The life of a flight Attendant is one that is envied by many because of the glamorous image often portrayed – travelling all over the world while getting paid. Life doesn’t get better than that. However, many factors play a part in becoming a Flight Attendant. In addition to personality, ability, and customer service experience – industry knowledge is critical to your success.
All airlines are required to provide training to newly hired cabin crew.

- Airline terminology
- City Codes
- Airline policies and flight procedures
