There are a lot of Filipinos who do want to become a flight attendant of an airline based outside the Philippines, and yes, it has its own advantages and disadvantages. In this episode of CREW TALK on FLYHIGH MANILA TV, we talk to flight attendant Klarence Ann Lee where she shares insights on working in an airline outside the country like coping with loneliness to the fun of working with other nationalties.
She served the airline for 45 years, 10 years as a safety and standards officer and 35 years as a flight purser and cabin crew. She entered Philippine Airlines in 1974 and she has indeed experienced all the ups and downs of the airline including it's transition from a government airline to private, the different uniforms, and even those crisis. FP Elsa Yuzon finally retired from the airline last December 5 but not without a celebration.
The Philippine Airlines Football / Futsal Club is a group of cabin crew and flight deck crew members of Philippine Airlines who represents the airline during Football and Futsal tournaments. They usually hold practice and conditioning sessions every Friday where even cabin crew members not really into Football could join the conditionung sessions. Mond heads out to the PAL basketball court to witness a PAL FC practice session.

It all started before our layover when we decided to check a trip advisory about what else to do in Japan. I and my fellow Cebu Pacific cabin crew namely Alyssa, Clarence, Desiree, Elle, Jv, Karla, Marie, and Riza, saw this interesting place called Narita-san Shinshō-ji temple located at Central Narita in Chiba and we decided to visit it. When we arrived in Narita, we decided to make the most of our layover.

Do you ever imagine what it’s like to take an aerial view of the world from above? You get the feeling of being high above the clouds, and look down below. How cool is that? However this entry is not a movie review of Gwyneth Palthrow’s “A View From The Top” but it gave me inspiration to create this as well!
As we say, others pay to travel. Cabin crew members are paid to travel. Well, we come take a look at Doha Qatar during a cabin crew layover.
So how is it going on a layover as a cabin crew couple? Here is a short video of how a layover at Hawaii goes for Philippine Airlines cabin crew members, and in this video, a cabin crew couple.
Filipinos are almost everywhere around the world. No matter what, we have at least one Filipino relative in a different country. Cabin Crew members do have that advantage of seeing their family abroad frequently. Though their stay may be short due to layovers, at least they get to spend precious time with their loved ones.
