There are indeed a lot of people who dream to be flight attendants and flight stewards. During the last Philippine Air Asia cabin crew recruitment event, around 1,200 applied but only around 50 were taken in. That's is less than 5% of the total number of applicants. In other airlines, the ratio is even down to 5:100 meaning, only 5 are taken in by the airline to be cabin crew out of 100. Why is it so hard to become a flight attendant?
Yesterday, an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 Max 8 crashed near Addis Abba in Ethiopia, killing 149 passengers and 8 crew members. Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 crashed 6 minutes shortly after take-off, very similar to what happened to Lion Air 610, where all passengers and crew members lost their lives. No matter how safe they say it is, but being inside an airplane, a life support system flying at 40,000ft is still very risky and anything can happen.
