At the airline I work for, “steward” is not a male air host, but the title of the person in charge of the galley. He or she usually has a background in hospitality and receives further education in food and beverages before obtaining the “steward” title.
Something I find really fascinating is how we are often three different nationalities on the flights out of Copenhagen: Swedes, Danes and Norwegians. It does not take long before you understand all three languages, so on board we usually communicate in our own language.
Narita is the airport city just outside Tokyo. This is also where we stay, on our Tokyo flight layovers. The picture perfect city center in Narita is surrounded by a lush green landscape, and there is also a shrine and lots of small vintage stores.
Being a cabin crew is all about being service minded, being able to talk to people and wanting to help them. A small gesture is often all it takes to make a memorable flight for our passengers.
So you think that most cabin crew are women? Think again! Magnus (@captainmagnus) and I had a flight together to New York, and out of 10 crew members, I was the only girl on board! It isn’t often that it happens, but we had such a fun time. Male or female, – all my colleagues are great!
The airline I work for employs thousands of cabin crew, so ending up on the same flight as all your best friends only rarely happens. When it does, it feels more like going away on a city break, and not at all like working:)
