Almost There!

I thought I would pop a quick post up while I’m sat in the airport waiting for my flight to Heathrow. I am so glad that I decided to go down today instead of tomorrow, I think I would have felt pretty stressed out going down the night before, worrying about getting there etc. Going today means that tomorrow I can take the day to get settled into my accommodation, get some groceries and read over my notes for training.

Fit to Fly & An Update

I set off at 6:30am yesterday to go for my uniform fitting and medical, unfortunately I wasn’t able to get them on the same day so I had to stay overnight in a hotel. I stayed at the Travelodge Terminal 5, it was my first time in a Travelodge and it honestly makes Holiday Inn look like the Ritz in comparison! I don’t know how people can spend the 6 weeks training in one, I would crack up.

I had my uniform fitting yesterday, I’ll be honest Continue reading

To say that I am relieved to finally have my start date is an understatement, that was the overwhelming emotion I felt when I read the email telling me my start date. I got the provisional job offer almost 12 weeks ago, I had started to lose hope that I would ever get a date! It didn’t help when I would read on cabincrew.com about people who had their AD in July and August and they had received their start date, it just didn’t seem fair! I know I shouldn’t have compared my progress to other people’s, but it was hard not to! Continue reading

Referencing and Background Checks

Almost two weeks after getting the provisional offer of employment I have finally gotten the email to say that they are going to start doing my background checks. Yay! It is finally starting to feel real now! The airlineĀ themselves don’t do the background checks, mine will be done by SterlingBackcheck, but I think there is another company that do the checks too.

The Top 5 Places I Hope To Visit When i Get My Wings

One of the biggest reasons I think anybody wants to be cabin crew or a flight attendant, is the opportunity to travel the world and experience different cultures all while getting paid. For me personally it is way outwith my financial means to go to places in America or the Far East, I would have to save for years to afford it! So I have every intention of making the most out of any time I able to spend in the amazing places I will get to go to. It doesn’t matter if it is a night stop, or I get 48 hours, I will not be hiding myself away in my hotel room. The opportunity to see some of the amazing places in this world is one of the main reasons why I applied to an international airline Continue reading

What To Wear To A Cabin Crew Assessment Day

One of the things I was really worried about before my cabin crew assessment day was, what should I wear!? In the email you are advised to wear ‘smart attire’ but that can mean different things to different people. What if the recruitment team didn’t think I looked smart enough!

Females definitely have a lot to think about when it comes to dressing to impress at a cabin crew assessment day. How should I style my hair? Red lipstick or no red lipstick? Continue reading
