Pictures of stewardess form world airlines.
Ever since I was 3, I have been traveling around the world with my grandma. I’ve been to every continent atleast twice, except Antarctica and Australia, so I kinda have a thing for traveling. I am also completely fascinated with everything about aviation. I initially wanted to be a pilot but 1) My mom highly disagrees with me about this pathway, and 2) I feel that my gender and race will hold me back from this profession. I also have thought about being an air traffic controller, but this just seems so boring too me. Sorry, ATCs. So, I have started to think about being a flight attendant. I realize how insanse scheduling and work hours can be and im ready to accept that. I am a sophomore in high school who has no choice but to go to college. Also, my mom would really like me to go to an ivy league.
Will being a flight attendant affect going to college?
How many years can you possible be a flight attendant?
Is the salary a “struggling, lower-middle class salary”?
With my experience of being a flight attendant, what careers can I fall back on?
I want to leave Australia for like 15-25 years and just travel around from country to country doing different jobs, and I don’t care if there not best paying because im doing it for the experience. I just want to be free and never know what’s around the corner..
I’m 18 now and looking to leave when I’m 20-21
And no jobs like teacher, flight attendant and stuff like that
So how do I get it started ?
In the Philippines. Asides from being a pilot or a flight attendant, what other jobs let you travel the world. I mean really travel, not just business, like they give you free time to cite see or something. Is it possible to have a high paying job that lets you travel the world at the same time? Or am I asking for too much? I really wanna see the world. Rio De Janeiro, Amsterdam, New York, Paris, Beijing.
As if late i’ve really been thinking about being a flight attendant. I love being around people and I’m good with kids. I also want to see the world. But I want to know (from people who have done this job for awhile) how does family fit into this job? I really want a family. Also where all have you been? Is it normal to go to those places? Do you always work with new people? And are they generally nice? When did you know this was what you wanted to do? Any information you can give me would be greatly appreciated I’m trying to figure out if this is what I want to do. I’m a freshman in high school and my mom is hounding me to figure out what I want to do
Oh also, i’ll be going to college. What should I study if I want to do this job?
Im an american and german citizen. I have passports for both. Im 14, my birthday is in march. Iv always been a lot more grownup than the others, and I look 16-18. Ive had a pretty troubled past, but its not like im from the ghetto or anything. Im originally from germany, but i spent most of my life moving around the states. Ive lived the longest in seattle, and its my home. i have the best hippie friends. my mom just had trouble raising me. in june my mother, suffering from depression, realized that she cant take care of me. she decided i should move in with my dad in germany. Im emotionally strong, having been through alot, and i have a pretty positive outlook on life, but ever since i moved away from seattle, ive been purely miserable. I cant do this anymore. i have to get away. my mom is a flight attendant fyi. ive traveled around the world alot, so i have alot of street smarts too. my problem is that my parents, while divorced, are both not letting me move back there. my mom moved to florida with her bf. im going to run away, and i know its going to be risky, which is why i need someones help. im thinking of contacting my moms partially alcoholic ex boyfriend. i pretty much loathe him, but im thinking he could finance it, since he hates my mom even more, so i wont have to wipe out my entire savings. i was thinking of getting through customs by convincing someone to pose as an uncle, aunt, stepmother etc. and just write their name on a slip of paper saying i can go with them and forging my parents signature. Im looking for really smart people that can help me. i dont know why, but burn notice spies are the kind of people im looking for. experienced people that can help me get away. im living in dusseldorf, so look from their. im also fluent in german and english, and can talk myself out of many things.
okay well first of all, the ex isnt that crazy, and i was living with him before so theres no reason why i cant live with him now. he is a partial alcoholic because hes not as crazy as any of them. also, if my parents saw that i was willing to do all of this just to be in seattle, they probably would agree to let me stay and finance my stay there. im not idiotic, and i dont watch too much tv, and i was using the spy thing as a reference because i dont want some 11 year old sitting behind their computer helping me plot my escape. i just want advice- what to do, what not to do, how to get from point a to point b. once im there, ill figure it out for myself. i cant spend 4 years in a depression. i am smart, I speak two languages, and im willing to do just about anything to get back to where I belong, i just dont want to get caught, and i was hoping you guys could help me instead of criticizing my plans.
I just want to hear viewpoints from others on why they (as an american) or why as a society we think that we are superior and the best country in the world.
I am American (from NC) but I have traveled alot around the world (Flight Attendant, Volunteer pre-school teacher in Fiji Is., Mexico) and culture/society/language fascinate me. Why do we think we are so much better then the rest of the world? I know that we are the most overworked, live in a xtremly stressful society, and most of us are not happy.
MY DOCTOR TOLD ME A FEW DAYS AGO that your not supposed to be happy all the time, that most people are only really happy maybe once a month or so. I refuse to believe that, and him saying that has really bothered me. If we think we have to live with so little happiness that is sad. Thats not the world people thats the US culture with all the presures of mounting bills, buying houses, working non-stop, and for what? so we can not be happy?
Let me tell you true happiness. When I lived in the Fiji Is (2nd-3rd world country) I never knew such inner peace and happiness existed until then. All extended families live in one big house (young adults are not pressured to move out, they are wanted as part of the family). No house payment (build your own, neighbors help u and everyone), No car payment (dont need a car), No bills whatsover. They live on Fiji Time (the bus comes when it gets there whether its 3 or 4pm. Grow ur own food, You really know all your neighbors and family, you cannot walk by a neighbors house without them asking you to come in and eat and chat. Life in countries like that is about living, I remember popping out of bed every morning to roosters crowing and being excited about the day. I cant say the same living here. I really think experiencing true happiness has hurt me in a way because I will never be able to look at our culture the same. Even their Healthcare is 100% free, granted im sure ours is better but these people never get cancer/sick, they eat 100% organic grown and caught food. The sit around in circles at night and play guitar and sing songs and tell the funniest jokes I have ever heard (completely diff sense of humor). They spend the day in a word they use as “telanoa” which means to just hang out, joke and tell stories, sing songs. People have ABSOLUTELY no idea what that kind of happiness feels like over here, everyone is so plugged into all these electronical devices that families dont even see each other let alot does the neighborhood truly help/support each other and hang out together daily. It seems like no big deal to most of you im sure but if you ever lived that life you would know what I mean (lanturns for light at night, sharing bedrooms), your senses get so much keener w/o all the electronics and false lights. I could see for a mile ahead of me in pitch black with no moon, there is no stress/very very little compared to ours. WHAT BOTHERS ME THE MOST is that while living there I constantly got asked about how “great” America is, and they wanted stories about it. I tried telling them how much better they have it but they just dont get it. They hear about all our new fancy IT stuff and Dinsey World (which is fun) and all our fastfood and it is like ingrained in them that Americans are superior. They want to live here, but whevever I see a foreigner (from Africa or 3rd world nation) I always ask them is America what you thought it would be like when you came here, they always so No, its much harder and they all want to go back home. What do we have that is so great? our intelligence is not superior these people speak 3-4 languages in several different dialects. We dont take the time to spend the day mocking about talking to friends and really caring what they feel like. What is it , Why do Americans think they are so superior? I really want to know what u guys think, as it is really bothering me, last time I went to Fiji they had cell phones everywhere, electricity almost everywhere, computers, etc and it breaks my heart because they want to be like us but in actuallity we despretely need to be more like them, self sufficiant and happy.
(I’m not talking about just Fiji in Particular that just happens to be a Country I know alot about) WHY ARE MOST AMERICANS so great?????????????????????
HELO – Your point makes a lot of sense, Im guessing your from or have spent time in another country, judging by your viewpoint. Most of the comments are typical American Arogance. How can people know its so much better here if they have never been elsewhere? its so frustrating to me.
LAUREN – America is big compared to most countries, and I havn’t seen the studies on happiness but I know if its ranked by country that we are far from the top. But just because were a “superpower” still does not make us “better” just because were from here. In my opinion happiness is everything, if not ur just getting by with a miserable life. Some countries hate us so bad because of our arrogance that they were cheering on 9/11 when the towers got knocked down, they just wanted to see something bad finally happen to us because our egos are ridiculous
CURIOUS -Actually many other countries do not think they are great (or atleast the people living in them). Its great to be great, but are we really great? that determines on what you measure greatness as: If u measure it as a govn. in debt trillion, crappy presendents, little to no interaction with family/friends/neighbors , and working our buts off just to scrape by — is that really great? The ONLY great thing I see in America is the Decloration of inderpendence and our rights, but most other countries have something very similar. I DO Deffinently appreciate the great things in our country but the ignorance of other cultures and the impact us as americans have on planet Earth which everyone must live on is stupindess. As for other people in other countries wanting to be like us like I said earlier thats only till they get here then they realize that America is NOT as great as it is portrayed,( Im just saying no harsh feelings)
VEGEMITE – •Americans army/military is great I totally agree with that, probobly the best in the world, but again it dosent make us better just because we were “born” here.
” The medical system might be great but it costs a fortune to get a splinter out. They sue for petty things.”
Agree with that too, all the stupid petty suing, only worried about ourselfs and money, not caring about who we are sueing and if they even actually hurt us. And the Medical “crisis” with people having no healthcare and those who do have to pay a fortune. If we dont change this country around we are headed for sh** creek in my opinion, and we seem dam* jolly about it even though were rarely happy
Some-yan Actually most people do not know what its like to live in a 2nd or 3rd world country ecspecially a thriving island nation. I do not mean to sound verbose thats just how I talk.
what is better about our “poor class” then their “middle class” , its not happiness, what is it? I want to know
….around 35,000 feet when the plane she was on exploded in mid-air? I think it was in the 70′s at some point, and she was listed in the Guinness Book of Records for a time as the world’s greatest survivor. She was either Scandinavian or East European I think. Thanks.
My dream in life is to graduate from nursing and apply in any airlines and be a flight attendant because I really want to travel the world. But since my parents are against to it, I had to change it. They want me to go to med school next year after taking up nursing. I will just follow them ’cause I hate disappointing them. I want them to be proud of me. So after taking up nursing, I will go to med school (which will take me 4 years for proper med, 1 year for post graduate internship and a year for board exam) After passing board exam, I will try to take an USLME cause I want to work in States and the only way for them to acknowledge my profession as a doctor is passing that exam. Then, I will have my residency (I still don’t know which specialization though. It’s either radiologist or OB-Gyne). And after that, I’ll have my own clinic. That’s all. Will save lotsa money and travel around the world. Which do you think is better? To be a doctor or a flight attendant?
I am trying to fly to vermont from san diego and would like to do so standby. But from what i hear, not a lot of airlines give you the discounted ticket price flying standby. They will simply sell it to you at regular price
does anybody have any information about this?
I have two pet dogs, a Pekingese and a Dachshund weighing 4 kilos and 13 kilos respectively.
Which airlines will allow me and my wife to carry one dog each in the cabin itself?
I do not want my pets to travel as baggage or cargo. I am willing to pay for their tickets, if needed.
Is there any other ethical way of transporting them?
If so what was it like? My husband worked for Northwest Airlines for 17 years on the ramp and has a “group” interview with Southwest Airlines next week. He is wondering what the process is like.
I want to be a stewardess, see the world… i LOVE to travel but what kind of job security will i have later on,..? i can’t be a stewardess forever, like when i want to settle down..
I always see the Continental Airline commercials on TV, and they are always bragging about their airline. I never hear any of the other airlines gragging. Does Continental Airlines does anything different then the other airlines,and why do they always bragg an the other airlines don’t? Just curious.
