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
