10 Reasons to be a Flight Attendant

by Stephanie Shaw

Every day, aspring flight attendants ask me to describe some of the benefits of a flight attendant career. I've outlined below what I think are ten of the most appealing aspects of the profession.

  1. Enjoy a great deal of time off (13 to 17 days off per month; roughly 6 months off per year!).
  2. Get free or reduced-cost travel benefits for yourself and immediate family, covering air travel, lodging, car-rentals, and cruises.
  3. Get a lucrative benefits package, often including health and life insurance, credit union membership, employee stock options, and a 401(k) retirement plan.
  4. Enjoy unmatched variety - Forget the predictability of 9 to 5 cube life!
  5. Enjoy maximum scheduling flexibility - You're not limited to weekends off like the rest of the world!
  6. Meet new people, including many celebrities.
  7. See the world.
  8. Feel more independent.
  9. Feel more responsible.
  10. Feel a sense of pride and accomplishment (especially when you help an unaccompanied minor or handicapped passenger safely reach their destination).

Stephanie Shaw is a flight attendant with over 23 years experience with a major airline and a staff writer for AirlineCareer.com.
