No. This solves the planning department flights.

How many days did you spend outside the home in a month?



If you come across a conflicted or drunk passenger, what will you do?


There is an instruction that determines the actions of the cabin crew about such passengers. If the passenger behaves inadequately, the flight attendant gives him an oral warning. If the passenger does not obey, the message is transmitted to the FAC, and he issues a written warning. In the case when the passenger did not comply with this requirement, the PIC gives an order to pacify the passenger. Any improvised means can be used. Naturally, without physical violence. If the passenger's behavior threatens flight safety, then the PIC takes the decision of an unscheduled landing of the aircraft. All further development of events occurs on the orders of the captain of the aircraft.

 Our airline has a strict and businesslike uniform. She has now become very recognizable. I really like the chosen style of dress - it is strict, formal, comfortable and practical.

What do you wish the male gender in this profession?


Although there are noticeably fewer men in the number of flight attendants, I would like to wish them to always be healthy, responsible and loved.

My opinion: men are indispensable in this profession, especially with luggage navykov.V practical medical emergency response in men and better, and in general a man physically vynosliv.I -stimul good for the female crew.!

People used to take the flight attendants as the staff in the form of a pretty girl. Indeed work flight attendant not only for girls. In some emergency situations, we can say that it is more suitable for men.

From time to time have to fly different airlines. Always respecting the work of flight attendants is their high level of professionalism! Always willing to help, and in all its passengers. Thank them for their patience and care!
