If you still longing for a good grasp at one full day, then let’s have a sneak peak of one day in the life of a cabin crew.
You have to wake up precisely at this hour of dawn and get yourself presentable. You must also ensure that you are all fine and dressed and done already with your breakfast. After this, you need to report at your at least 1.5 hours prior to the departure of the aircraft to ensure that you’ve got time enough to settle things.
You must verify with your pigeon-hole for any updates and also with your roster to inform yourself of any amendments. Next, go through the cabin manual/first-aid manual quickly before you go for the brief.
Everything will be informed by your senior crew member and things will get cleared in here in the form of questions and answers.
Once you’re onboard now, you will have to make sure that everything is perfect. This includes overhead lockers, seat back pockets and the floor area.
Appear gay in front of the passengers while they board in and then, once everything is done, take them through the safety demonstration.
After the aircraft takes off and as soon as the seatbelt signs are switched off, you can start with the services in flight, regardless of whether they are free or chargeable. Here, prepared to check toilets for cleanliness and security purposes.
Now, when the landing time is approaching, brief and prepare the passengers for the landing and ensure that all can embark successfully. This is to be followed by the loading of new catering and security checks all around.
So, once you are back again on the ground after the passengers have driven away, proceed with the ultimate security check, accompanied with some cleaning activities. Next, check your roster back again for any changes. Then, you can retreat homewards and lay back.
