You Will Never Be The Same: Thoughts On Travel, Masada, & Israel

I often find it hard to comprehend how it is that I have had the chance— in a short few years of being a flight attendant— to see places, not just once, but multiple times. It took London and I about fifty introductions before I fell in love. Copenhagen, Denmark was a constant in my […]

I Love You, But I’m Leaving…

“Ahhhh man,” he said as he leaned in to kiss me. “I wish you weren’t leaving tonight.” I smiled as I stared back into the bright sparkle of his crystal blue eyes. I genuinely meant it when I responded with a, “Me too.” It’s not that I was going to miss him. We had only […]

Cabin Crew Perspective: What I would tell my 20 year old self

By Marco K During my one hour commute towards one of the biggest airports in Europe, I was browsing through the news. The header attracted my attention. ‘What would I tell my 20-year-old self,’ stated by an author who recently turned 30. While still being in my twenties, I heard myself repeating this question softly out loud. […]

Summer In The Skies: How Cabin Crew Make Work A Vacation

I’m sitting in a warm, darkened aircraft, fanning myself with a passenger safety card. The lights are off, the power shut down. A few rows back, my co-flight attendant props her feet up and enjoys her lunch. She sighs. There’s something wonderful about getting to work early, and enjoying the stillness of the airplane before […]

Why you should spend your money on experiences and not things

I am not in a relationship. I don’t have a car that’s nice or even works very well.  I live out of suitcases.  Many times, home feels like the airplane.  I don’t sleep much.  I sometimes wonder how I will pay rent or wistfully wish I was in a more lucrative career.  But, I would say that […]

From Little Planes To Mainline: How I Landed My Dream Job

Click. “Your swap has been confirmed.” Wait… what? It was that… easy? I’ve been a flight attendant for over a year now but I’ve never had control of my own schedule: until now. Let me backtrack a little. I am currently transitioning from regional flying to mainline. And any tiny bit of schedule control is something […]

Why I Can’t Stop Missing Israel

I’m on an airplane, flying to a place that feels like home, one of my favorites: Copenhagen.  And yet, I can’t stop thinking about another place.  Israel.  Maybe most women daydream about a lover or a potential, but most often, my thoughts are centered around traveling; between places I’ve been, places I want to go, […]

Mountains, Temples and 3.2% Beer: Rediscovering Salt Lake City

The airplane lurches. I sit upright in my jumpseat, adjusting the straps of my shoulder harness. I pick up the intercom and calmly inform people that we will be experiencing some turbulence, and that yes, they should already be sitting down with their seatbelts fastened, their seatbacks and tray tables in the upright and locked […]

Rejection: It’s not just a flight attendant thing

Within the past week, I fielded a couple of rejections- one writing related and one dating related.  The simple email response from the intern telling me, “I’m sorry, but we won’t be able to sell your writing,” had me oddly happy as any response from literary agencies, even a “we don’t want you,” is fairly […]
