The job of the air stewardess and steward is mainly to look after the welfare, comfort and safety of the passengers. During the flight, they have to serve the passengers with meals and drinks.

Usually, individual airlines recruit and train their own air cabin crew members. Many of the trainings can be quite intensive and demanding.

Personality-wise, airlines look for potential crew members who are presentable-looking, polite and tactful. Air cabin members must also possess good stamina and be approachable. Very commonly, an air stewardess or steward is expected to be physically attractive and have a pleasant and friendly disposition.

Certain airlines also have minimum height requirements for their air stewardess and steward.

    Air stewardess are usually very pretty. But not all airlines go for pretty girls.

    Nevertheless, being an air stewardess job is really cool because it allows you to travel and see the world.

    Hi Moke,

    I hope you dream of being an air stewardess will come true one day.

    I have several friends who were air stewardesses, they really get to travel to many countries.

    All the best 🙂

    I am quite clear with the jobscope but my point of view is though it allows people to travel but you don’t really get much time to visit the places as you would be too tired for that… and you really have to risk your health and the pay is not so good after all

    well..what about the age limitation? i’ve heard that once the stewards are over that age limit,they can no longer be flying with the air crew right? So,what next? What can we do after that? Is there any other job opportunities?

    That’s the only thing i’m worried about.

    I am Cabin Crew and the role is a very demanding one. Safety is of the up most importance and the training is very demanding with tests that you need to pass before you can fly, but it is also great fun! The days at work can be extremely long (sometimes you can work a 15 hour day) and the shift patterns very tiring and nearly always in un-socialable hours. If you don’t mind being away from home and love interacting with people and helping them then this job can be very rewarding. Although many people think that the job is glamourous it can be far from that… especially when you are dealing with an in-flight medical emergency or having to re-stock smelly toilets, but on the up-side I love giving a great service to the passengers and it is lovely to meet so many different kinds of people. Often, you will not get to see many countries as it’s a quick turn-around once you land at your destination and you’re heading straight back home again. You are meeting new people all the time, even work colleagues as you often fly with crew that you’ve never even met before. I love having the responsibility of looking after people and making sure they are safe and comfotable…in my experience it’s much better than being behind a desk any day!!!
