FA Job Is 2nd Sexiest Job After Fire Fighter

Wed Apr 06, 2005 11:22 pm

Just saw on CNN that FA job is considered 2nd sexiest job after fire fighter. Followed by reporter job.

What do you guys think? Are we still that glamorous in those polyester uniforms?

Did a reporter report that they are #3? I always thought being an IT geek was the #1 sexy job. Oh, right... I'm single.

Now, as for the fire fighter, what about an AIRPORT fire fighter? Does that make them even more sexy? I guess if it were a girl, on this site she'd be a dream mate! lol.  bigthumbsup

I'm surprised by this. Obviously, CNN's researchers haven't spent a lot of time looking at the DL FA's because a "sexy" one is hard to find these days. They all seem to be 90 years old.
Hypocrisy. It's the new black for liberals.

Maybe they only did the survey on Hooters Air and didn't realize the Hooters Girls aren't actually FAs.  biggrin

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.

I don't think that this applies to US FAs. Even southwest is slipping.

Agreed! Maybe back in the 60's they were the sexiest, but nowadays with equal opportunities for everyone in the workplace, not so sexy anymore.

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.

Edit: I would vote flight attendants number one.

I used to feel sexy, but I just turned 30 and I just feel old now.  Wink


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.

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"? ( duck Sorry, I couldn't resist!)

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  Smile

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!

Best regards

I saw some firefighters the other day in a parking lot. I gave them an agry look... I think they got the message that I'm sexier.

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.
