Make Packing And Organizing Your Flight Attendant Bag Quick And Easy

There are just some things about travel and flight attendant life that I don't think I will EVER love. Like lavatories. Or jet lag. Or delays. Or creepy pilots. Or... Packing and unpacking. And packing and repacking. I feel like, at some point, I would get good at the process, but it always seems that...

The Magic Of Mexico: Escaping To Isla Blanca

Editor's note: this is a very personal confession of my life. It's not so much about flying, but on my own relationships, struggles, and uncertainties; which I guess—ultimately— is very much what this blog has always been about. I hope you enjoy what I feel is a rare form of my writing, especially as the...

Becoming A Private Cabin Attendant: My New Journey Into Private Aviation

Jasmine and I chatted as the music wafted through the beach bar and gastropub, while I found myself once again caught between time zones and battling my eyelids to stay open. Jasmine would soon know this trap firsthand. The newly graduated commercial flight attendant’s eyes glimmered with excitement, and her voice sparkled with anticipation. Her joy...

1963 Threw Up Here

My pillbox hat teeters precariously as the caravan of precocious suitcases— large, medium, small, and hand-baggage size— swarm me like a hive of angry Africanized bees. Definitely not docile, I fight the largest piece of luggage over the lip between the lift and Floor Four, as a man with an exorbitant amount of tattoos silently observes […]

What It Feels Like To Go To Training

That first day of training; I had forgotten what it feels like. Like knots in your stomach. Like you want to say a thousand words whenever you open your jaw, but somehow are only able to squeak out your name and a big stupid grin. Like you sit more upright than you have ever sat […]

The Mundane

Yesterday, I had a passenger smoke her eCigarette in the lav causing an emergency signal to be sent to the cockpit. I was flight leader, so naturally; I had to handle it. Today, we were delayed for an hour due to weather. While I’m serving drinks to first class, an issue arises with a passenger. […]

Private Aviation vs. Commercial Aviation: Which Type Of Flight Attendant Are You?

By  When people ask what I do for a living, I say, “I’m a Flight Attendant.” The second question I always get is, “What airline do you work for?” This is where the conversation becomes complex; ultimately losing people. Why? Because I work in Private Aviation and it’s NOTHING like commercial.  Last week, I had my […]

“What Do You Want?”

“What do you want?” I asked pointedly— the words digitally etched into existence. The text message had a haunting feel to it, as if the question should have been directed at me instead of the stranger who had messaged me out-of-the-blue after obtaining my number from a mutual airline friend. This stranger worked for my […]
