Behind all the glitz and glamour others see, a flight attendants job entails a lot of sacrifice and commitment. As safety professionals in the sky, their job entails flying their passengers from point A to point B safely in one piece. Yes travelling the world and being paid to travel is simply a benefit of the job, just like other jobs with high salaries. Behind all those benefits flight attendants receive is a job and lifestyle where even their own lives hang on the balance.
When we dream of becoming a cabin crew, we dream of a long term career and lifestyle. Of course in the start, the feeling is exciting but later on, we sometimes feel "what is next". The best way to counter this is to always look into not just being a "standard" cabin crew, but to be an exceptional one, one that seeks excellence! Here, Philippine Airlines flight steward and motivational speaker Amor Maximo talks about what are the elements of an exceptional cabin crew.
One of the biggest mistake made by cabin crew aspirants during an interview is not being aware that they are already being observed by the recruiters the moment they step into the room or even into the building. Sometimes even before you talk during your cabin crew interview, basically recruiters already know if they will get you or not. Hence, every second counts and everything you do the moment you enter will affect your chance or getting in the airline or not.

The view on top a mountain is indeed very beautiful. When you make it to the top, it feels like you own the world. You appreciate God's creation even more. You savor the moment of being at the peak of a mountain when before, you would just look up that peak from the ground. This is what the journey of becoming a cabin crew is. The view from 40,000ft is amazing but to get inside that aircraft in a uniform will mean a lot of hardship, pain, sacrifice, dedication, and focus.
