Middle East airlines like Saudia, Qatar Airways, Emirates, Etihad, FlyNas, Oman Air, and more are the biggest employers of Filipino cabin crew outside the country. In the past, these airlines would stage multiple open days and mass-hirings in the Philippines. In 2017, Qatar Airways staged around 4 or more cabin crew open days in different locations. Now, we barely hear from these airlines? What happened?
Flight attendants of a certain airline now have a new way getting passengers to obey all safety rules, and to behave in the aircraft. Instead of confronting passengers disobeying rules, they award passengers who obey rules and who have been pleasant throughout the flight! In a Facebook post by Michael James Schnieder, it says "I won best passenger award 2019."
Betty Ong was one of the flight attendants aboard American Airlines flight 11 flying from Boston Logan International Airport to Los Angeles. Then 45-year old Betty Ong chose to be assigned to flight 11 with the intent to return to Los Angeles so she can go on her vacation to Hawaii with her sister after the flight. What was supposed to be an ordinary flight ended in a tragedy last September 11, 2001 that changed the world and flying forever.
Philippine Airlines is still accepting cabin crew applicants and are still processing applications but this is for shortlisting or pooling only for the upcoming batches. What does this mean? It means that you may be called to undergo the screening process until the final stage but you will not immediately be given a start of training date should you pass the screening process.

Cabin crew members are trained to give themselves to others selflessly, without expecting anything in return. Indeed, service for others is the highest form of honor one can give to this world and flight attendants are trained exactly for that to the point that they carry this trait even outside the aircraft in their daily lives. Little did this Philippine Airlines flight steward realize that his little random act of kindness will go a long long way one day.
A mystery flight attendant suddenly became viral on social media after she was seen remaining calm not minding what was going around her while a couple quarrels on an issue we have no idea about.

In my last meeting with Philippine Airlines President and COO Jaime J. Bautista, we did talk about the airline's goal and direction of becoming a 5-star airline. Though he did mention that becoming a 5-star carrier is indeed a very big challenge, it is very much possible for as long as forward steps are undertaken everyday, be it big or miniscule. It looks like everything is slowly paying off!

Never ever ever crack a single bomb joke within the airport and most particularly inside an aircraft. Do not even bother to make a statement regarding a bomb as this is dealt with very seriously by authorities. It is dealt with very seriously that it can cause the Air Force to scramble fighter jets! This was exactly what happened last June 2 aboard a Scoot Airline flight from Cebu to Singapore.
