Good evening, although you may not be tonight? Introduce yourself, portalAvia.proand tell us where you are right now?


Good day, always address the way, because of my profession I know that I can be the morning, while others - already day. Quite simply, my name is Alina, flight attendant work already 4-th year. At the moment, enjoy your stay in Singapore, tomorrow night, I will fly back to the base.

If I'm not mistaken, you work in a company "Etihad"Why this choice?


That's right, in Etihad airways. This is a young (10 years!) And a very promising airline. It develops very rapidly and, despite the difference in 20 years, for example, Emirates, can make her a worthy competition. From the perspective of the employee, the best jobs and can not find. We provide accommodation, sports facilities with a personal trainer, swimming pools and much more. And wages among the flight attendants in the UAE and Qatar - the most worthy.

We believe that the more often you are faced with foreign visitors? Not having any difficulty in communicating?


That's right, and colleagues, and visitors - foreigners. Labor is not any, I do not always understand that the British and Scottish accent. It was difficult during the study, when everything said by some unknown terms, but over time it becomes easier to remember.

As far as we know, in most countries, which serves Etihad, Dominated by a group of Arabic. You are more likely to encounter with the English? Tell us how many languages ​​do you know and what?


On the "Arab" flight departs flight attendants who speak Arabic. I fly mainly to Europe and Australia. There are plenty of English. If it Geneva or Paris, when using French. Total 4 know the language - Russian, Latvian, English and French. Although the French controversial issue, taught it in school 7 years, but said that fluent, I can not.

What is your work schedule? It remains whether the time for private life?


Graphic works have no flight attendants. In a sense, it is a month ... every month, but completely different. This month I 3 flight to Australia, one in Moscow and one in Singapore, and reversal. That is all 6 flights per month. Sometimes 7-9 flights. If you only put spreads can be 14.Privacy enough time, if the second half is not an office worker not only works on weekdays from 10-6-minute to minute.

"I would like to see a number of colleagues who do not get confused and take the right decision in the case of emergency / abnormal situation. People who may learn to hole tutorial on safety and first aid. People are sitting on dzhampsite landing think not of new shoes, and an emergency outputs. "

Tell us if you experience the excitement of flying?


Very seldom I go to work with ease. My work begins even before I arrive at the airport.

House one hour before the exit, prepare briefing. Here begins my experiences: kolichestvovo guests, new crew, some services, as well as the duration of the flight. In general, it is already beginning to think about it all mentally. Still it is necessary to repeat the safety and first aid, each flight attendant to flight set a security question, if you can not answer it right, there will be big trouble. In general, work on vacation, I do not ever go.

Yes, savory job. Many are the image of the profession of the films, as in life is much more complicated ... Came across to your unruly passengers?


The film is also a lot of truth. Romantics in this work enough. One is worth the sky, each time different and incredibly beautiful!
At the expense of the guests, there were people who were trying to make fun of and were rude, but in the end, they themselves apologizing for his behavior. Such that on board brawled and fought, was not even once. Such people can be determined in advance, just to give them less alcohol and fewer grievances, and everything will be fine.

Have you seen the celebrities on airplanes?


When working in Latvia saw the president of Latvia (in economy class, remember this), Lima Vajkule, Andrew Danilko Zadornov ... Since fans of creativity is not, no impression on me is not produced. There is nothing good or bad can not say. Simply visit.

What do you wish for beginners in this profession?


Firstly, to wish them a true "desires" to be in this profession, because many come just for the money, travel, discounted tickets, with absolutely no recall of what they are actually on board. I would like to see a number of colleagues who do not get confused and take the right decision in the case of emergency / abnormal situation. People who may learn to hole tutorial on safety and first aid. People are sitting on dzhampsite landing think not of new shoes, and on emergency exits.

And in general, I wish you calm flights, smaller full house, tailwind, patience, and do not forget to smile! The smile will brighten all the discontented and guests will be less!

Thank you very much for your time. You are a very bright and sympathetic person. Good luck to you in this difficult, but such an interesting profession!

CAPTCHA funny) and there is a little more complicated? to the roots and negative numbers?) and let it fly, it's good

Alina - the big fellow! One can see that the man loves his profession. Generally, flight attendants require slow shutter speeds, not every such work would go.

I've never been afraid of flying and even at one time thought about this job - you can visit different countries, receive a good salary and many other benefits. Honestly, I thought it was an easy job - the main thing to know languages. And as for an emergency - on the road so often broken cars than planes in the sky.
