It is nice to see pictures of cabin crew members in relationships particularly when you see them work together in one aircraft and enjoying their layovers together. It is indeed sweet, to the point that many wants that as a relationship goal! Unfortunately, not all couple would literally be in that kind of relationship as not all could be cabin crew members. Nevertheless, there are still ways and means to achieve those relationship goals by looking into the lessons we could learn from cabin crew couples.
“In Life, It’s Not Where You Go, It’s Who You Travel With” – Charles Schulz
Call it relationship goals. Travelling the world together, working together, and going home together. Others may see it as hard, but in reality, a relationship between two cabin crew members is a beautiful thing.

For the five years I’ve been in a long distance relationship, I can pretty much say it wasn’t easy at all. I firmly support the idea that every couple is different and we cannot just judge anyone who cannot be of the same preferences as ours. As for me, one thing is for sure. Every relationship should demand respect. I know the word demand seems like it comes from quite a negative tone in my claim. Especially when it comes to relationships. Some people will probably say that it shouldn’t be demanded rather instantly given. I used the word demand for the simplest reason. That’s how it worked and still works for us. I love the idea that both of us instilled in each other that respect is the key point to a successful relationship. I would never had survived our relationship if it wasn’t for that. You have to make your partner feel from the very start that it should be the basic principle you want to establish. Make him/her feel that you are worthy of his/her respect because that’s very different from assuming or expecting that it will be given without prior demands. Besides, not all people are the same and sensitive. Not everyone has the same idea of loving.

Justin and I started out as friends way back in college. We were blockmates (we both took up BS Entrepreneurship). We didn’t know that we would both fall in love ‘cuz we were in the same group of friends and I was too focused on my studies, but he pursued me and won my heart. He was my first boyfriend (and praying that he’d be my last).
A lot of people dreams of having a cabin crew life partner, a husband, a wife, a boyfriend, or a girlfriend. It’s easier said than done, easier to think of than experiencing it, especially when one is not involved in the aviation industry. “Marry me, fly for free” has been a tagline of many airline cabin crew members, not being taken seriously by them though, but sometimes, taken seriously by others outside the airline industry.

I hate to admit it but I actually had 3 failed relationships before I met him. Sad to say, all of those ended up because of infidelity which actually in a way traumatized me and had me to generalize that "all men are just born a-h*les.
JV Opinion and Lala Basit are cabin crew members of Philippine Airlines. Lala entered as batch ICCT1602 whereas JV entered as batch ICCT 1610. Both batches were sponsored by Flyhigh Manila during their graduation by hosting them post-graduation parties at The Palace. Obviously, they both met already in Philippine Airlines. Months after getting to know each other, they officially became a couple.
They say a relationship between two cabin crew members are usually the best. Imagine just travelling the world together as one gets to know each other for who they are. Flight steward Mike has been with his flight attendant girlfriend Mec for around 15 years.
I am sure many out there would love to date a flight attendant. Yes they all look glamorous, they can converse well, they have great people skills, and they make great travel buddies. There are more to those if you do want to date a flight attendant, and here are things you should know before you even try to manage to ask one out.

After the years have passed, it all disappears. This is what some couples fail to see. After how many years, the spark will go. The reasons why you loved the other person will be unknown. The butterflies in your stomach will soon disappear. You will forget why you liked that person in the first place. You'll start to see all the wrong and the ugly you chose to look blindly in your beginnings. Now, going home to each other's arms is not as exciting to look forward to as before. Cuddling and those exchange of sweet words become rare and all the fighting will take over.
