What does a flight attendant do?
Flight attendants are the kind, respectful and attentive men and women who make travel on flights comfortable for us. They make sure we are safe, help us when we are in need and ensure that we are enjoying our journey.
A flight attendant’s work requires a lot of patience, diligence and care. On most passenger flights, one attendant must look after nearly 50 or more passengers, which is extremely challenging and tiring, but they are happy to do it with smiles on their faces.
The next time you go on an airline, make sure you observe how many passengers an attendant is looking after and thank them for their service!
