When many people hear this word, they all think automatically that I had such a great life, traveling all over the world with a lot of money, free time and no problems.
But to be honest, just those who have ever worked as cabin crew or those whose close friends or family members have, know that the truth lies far away from this preconceived notion. And the best sunrise and sunset I have ever seen was, and always will be from up there in the sky.
As taking a flight has a lot to do with traveling itself, I dare to include this post on my blog.
Yes, I had worked as a cabin crew for 2 years before I started travel blogging (February 2009 to March 2011.)For those who cannot connect this with anything, you could have called me a stewardess/flight attendant back in days.
But everything is complex, so to understand it all better, I would like to point out some of the disadvantages of life as a cabin crew because not many people know about them and they think it is a paradise: Like I said, everything has both advantages and disadvantages and of course life of a cabin crew is not any exception.Plus, wearing a uniform helps people not to judge you by your appearance as we all look almost the same, which is good in a way, I think.Then knowing other cabin crew members means you can meet up with some of them when you travel and as well it can help you to know even more people just because you are both cabin crew or you know someone and they know him, too.I wrote this article because I really want people to see both sides of this job – cabin crew pros and cons.
Job of cabin crew even makes you learn some useful phrases in more languages, which is always helpful and you do not have to force yourself to study at home.It just gets into your head somehow after hearing it couple of times.
