Not at all, in fact I personally know of at least one a.nettr, EWRCabincrew, that is the ultimate professional, great sense of humor, and very courteous to all during the flight I was fortunate enough to have him as a crew member.

I think a mix of both is good, which is what I usually find on my Aer Lingus and British Airways flights. I find their crews very dignified and courteous but always willing to have a chat and lighten the mood.

A sort of mix is good, and it greatly depends on the nature of the flight in my opinion. For instance, Saturday flights and flights to leisure destinations, particularly on low-fare airlines but also on others (i.e. Vegas flights, Florida flights, etc...) should have a lighthearted crew. On the other hand, a Monday morning flight between New York and Houston (two very business-oriented cities), particularly on a legacy carrier but also on others, the crew should be very businesslike and professional. Also, the crew should be more business oriented in premium cabins and can be a bit more lighthearted in the economy cabins.
In sum, it depends on:
- Day of week (and holidays)
- Time of day
