What is the average age limit to be employed as flight attendant? I am 30 and I heard it is too late to start this experience.
Do you know if any airlines employ F.A. also for short term assignements (6 to 12 months)?

No you guys, this was news in the USA airline circles a while back as these people who had retired at other jobs wanted to start a F/A job just to see the what happens in the world outside their old cubicle at their old company. The last really big story I heard around here is that a pilot had some doubts about how a flight attendant who was in her mid seventies could perform required duties in an emergency and she was taken away from the flight. There is nothing written nor legal about exploiting people to their death for a dollar. Most all workers here in the USA have a choice as to whether they want to come to work or not no matter their age (except pilots aged 60+). There is no place here legally for indentured servitude and a person can go from job to job no matter their age if that's what they prefer.

no wonder you have the word 'lax' in your user anme when you clearly are being very lax with the rules of airlines. BA forever doesnt have a flip attitude, he simply responded to some on else and they then reached an understanding. This thread didnt need your four pennies worth but since you have started then im going to finish this off.
I would check that Id badge of yours, looks like your younger than you claim-thats clear from your childish remarks-or maybe your are older as only old people have an attitude which thinks they are superior to others?
I notice you havent responded and backup your statements, typical.
PS-there is an upper age limit on many airlines, BA was just stating this,British Airways along with VG and many others DO have an upperage limit.
It is amazing what can be accomplised when nobody takes the credit

In the US, there is NO "law" restriction on flight attendant ages (starting or retiring)....most large jet operators require f/as to be 21 or higher (commuters usually start at 18 or 19). As a 28 year old f/a.....trust me......you will still be one of the youngest out there at 30.....
