One thing we can say is that Filipino cabin crew have unique traits not found in others. This must be one of the reasons why they are just all over the world. Based on the pictures we receive from different flight attendants all over the world, it looks like there are Filipino crew members from airlines in every continent around the world. We now ask our followers to complete the sentence "You know you're a Filipino cabin crew when..." and here are their answers.
Proof that Flight Attendants Are Not Obligated to Lift Passenger Luggage Unto the Overhead Stowage Bins Part II
First and foremost, it is not part of the duty of cabin crew members to lift passenger luggage unto the overhead compartments. They may however lend assistance to passengers with physical hindrances like PWDs, pregnant women, elderlies, or anyone with any physical hindrance in stowing their carry-on bags unto the overhead compartments. Some may still not be aware of this so to back up our statements, we decided to directly ask airlines if their cabin crew members are obligated to lift passenger carry-ons into the OSBs. Here are their answers:

Many people still tends to make judgement based on what they only see with their naked eyes. Since they most of the time only see flight attendants serving food, welcoming passengers, doing safety demos, and attending to passenger needs on board, they get this quick conceived notion that cabin crew members are "flying waiters/waitresses" and "glorified maids". The only time the same passengers would realize the real worth of a flight attendant, sadly, are during accidents and an emergency situation, basically, situations where human lives are at risk.
When most thinks that the main job of the cabin crew is to serve "chicken or beef", it is absolutely not. We do understand that some people base this notion on what they see when they fly in an aircraft, especially that flight attendants do serve meals to passengers for them to enjoy a great and comfortable flying experience. They also attend to your needs right away because again, they want you to be comfortable, especially that you are actually flying at 40,000ft above the ground.
When some people think that the job of a flight attendant is just about serving chichen beef and that it's a "no-brainer" job, we think that there are 50 reasons why "no-brainers" will never make it to be a cabin crew. And to those who looks down on flight attendants because you think they are merely "glorified flying servants", do not forget that every government official you look up to including the Senators, Congressmen, Cabinet Secretaries, Vice-President, and even our President are known as public servants!
