First of all good morning to everyone :)

My name is Nadee, I'm planning to join with a aviation college. My long term plan is being a flight attendant. So i was searching about the life of a flight attendant on instagram/facebook and some website articles.

For outside people it being a flight attendant is a fun and easy job. But i think flight crew job is one of the hardest job in the world.

While searching i found this on facebook. it says flight attendants can also rest during flights and sleep. there's a hidden room in the fight. WOW.

First of all welcome to airliners.net! You will find a lot of useful information here. Second, congrats on choosing your career. It is a life changing experience.

You will find a photos of crew rest areas on this site too. You will need to use the serach photos function and put in some filters. There have also been some discussion on this, so you can use the search forum function.

Crew rest areas are there on long flights as crew need rest too to perform their best. Usually there is one in front for cockpit crew and one in the back for cabin crew. Some smaller aircraft may have only one.

Enjoy!

Each aircraft has a different location for the crew rest area. Most widebodies should have their own dedicated space for crew rest. On some narrowbodies, especially on long flights, airlines will block First/Business seats as a crew rest area.

… First off .. save your money … flight attendant is an entry level position with airlines. . you don't need to waste all those years on college … or commit youself to all that expense just to become a flight attendant.


Just put in your application, go to your cattle call glamour/personality interview with all the other 19 year olds .. and then if selected, go off to your 6 week training .. and then poof! … you're in the aisles.

Now .. about that "hidden room" you seem so interested in .. . . u wont be in there too much as a new-hire.

Welcome to a.nut.

There is indeed a crew rest on many airliners. However as mentioned, don't get too excited. You won't be spending nearly enough time there.

You call it a "fun and easy job". It is anything but easy. As a pilot, I think I have the easy job in comparison. After all, I am sitting down and dealing with professionals. The cabin crew is walking, bending over constantly, handling hot food and drinks, prepping food in cramped galleys, and most importantly dealing with tired, cranky, and ofter rude customers.

Flight attendant can be a very satisfying job, but never think it is relaxing or easy. The salary isn't anything to write home about in the entry level positions either. If travelling is your passion, and you truly enjoy customer service, go for it. But don't think it is all glamorous layovers in luxury hotels.

Dude. Why all of the negativity? While you make valid points, the tone in which you delivered the info was unnecessary.

It would be nice if passengers in coach have the same type of beds as the crew in the crew rest areas.

They already do. I'm sure first/business class lie-flat already beat crew bunks in terms of comfort.

I installed several Flight Crew Rest Compartment for A350. It seems somewhat comfy when you spend few minutes inside to inspect them. If you are small (and not claustrophobic) it can be nice.

I didn't know you need a college degree to be F/A. Here in Europe (France) you can be in a crew for a summer job. Obviously you have to speak at least 2 languages.

Good luck for your future !

Still better than Business. It is quite and dark and no one is passing you in the aisle.

Now if only there was a lav in there...
