I think about 5% of the flight attendants at U.S. carriers could be considered sexy. If they're not old, so many of them are just plain fat! I'm often embarrassed by the appearance of my co-workers. I always maintain my grooming and my uniform. I'm 40 years old and STILL a walking Ken doll!
Flight attendants haven't been sexy since around 1970. And I see a lot of flight attendants at European carriers who definitely aren't sexy.

See, you aren't going to find nice looking flight attendants at United, US Airways, American, Northwest or Delta, because they laid off about five years of flight attendants. That puts the youngest possible age at about 25 or 26.
So, look at the flight attendants at American Eagle, Mesa, Mesaba, AirTran, Frontier, etc. Some of Continental's flight attendants are very pretty, and they usually wear skirts and heels instead of pants and flats, a big plus.

I used to feel sexy, but I just turned 30 and I just feel old now.
This discussion reminds me of the episode of "Sex and the City" where Samantha dates a hot fireman and gets all excited about meeting the rest of the guys at his firehouse. She's totally let down when she sees that the place is filled with a bunch of middle-aged balding guys with beer guts. Stereotypes sometimes don't turn out to be true.

Quoting NYCAAer (Reply 5): I'm 40 years old and STILL a walking Ken doll!
So you mean to tell us you're 40 years old, have nothing but a "bump" between your legs, some plastic bitch has taken everything you own and you have to buy "your friends"? ( Sorry, I couldn't resist!)
DAMN! This SUCKS! I just had to go to the next higher age bracket in my profile! :-(

Well, I´ve seen beautiful and pretty F/A´s on US carriers.
I have two friends working for Delta and two working for United and they are just gorgeous. They look really nice when wearing their dresses!
Also a lot of the older F/A´s in the sky are still nice to look at. I recently met a 60 year old F/A and you would have thought she was in her late 40´s, early 50´s.
Remember that most of the older F/A´s nowadays used to be the sexy ladies of the 60´s and 70´s!!!
Also a lot of my co-workers are really pretty girls and guys
There are nice looking F/A´s at every carrier as well as some not so nice looking. I´ve seen ugly F/A´s on Asian carriers, yeah if you believe it or not... while everyone insists, that they are ALL so gorgeous and beautiful. True a lot of them are, but not ALL!

the survey should clarify whether the job is sexy for men or sexy for women. Clearly, the firemen job is for men. I'm just assuming that the F/A job is viewed as sexy for women. Thus, the F/A job is really the #1 sexiest job for women.
I would put TV reporter up there too, also bartender (sexy for men or women). Oh yeah, lifeguards and SCUBA instructors are usually pretty sexy too.
