Cabin Crew Christmas Traditions: Talia’s Story

  What does Christmas as a Flight Attendant look like for me? Honestly, not much has changed. I grew up in a single parent house hold for the majority of my childhood, so Christmas was always a little different for me. My mom did her best to try to make Christmas traditions for us, but […]

Commitment: A Flight Attendant’s Biggest Hurdle

Commitment. I think this might be one of the scariest and at the same time the most comforting words to a flight attendant. This is just one flight attendant’s opinion but if there is one thing I know its that when someone decides to commit to the cabin crew life they are inadvertently separating themselves […]

Finding Yourself (Halfway Around the World)

Breathing a little faster, I accelerate my pace. The steps continue upwards and onwards; the air becomes suddenly chilled. As the buzz of the crowds disappears behind me, the forest envelops me, and I forge on in my quest. I enter this new world and suddenly I am alone. Well, except for Kara, my new trusty […]

You Can(t) Count On Me

I planned to be in LA right now, at my Hermosa home.  I was going to go to an air show this weekend with a couple cutie pilots.  On Tuesday, I was looking forward to adventuring to London.  Then Norway.  Maybe Paris.  And I was just going to stay.  Stay until I decided that I […]

Why Living Out Of A Suitcase Is The Time Of Your Life

I had a comment recently from a blog reader, and newly hired flight attendant, who will start flight attendant training next week.  She responded to the blog about crash pad life, saying that she wishes that she could be based in her home city, and that living out of a suitcase sounds exhausting.  This sparked […]

Benefits Of Flying For A Large Airline

My friend Bri, […]

From Cabin To Cockpit

I’ve started another project, because of course, I need one more thing to do (sarcasm).  I’m beginning the process of becoming a pilot, which seems partly strange, as one of the statements you hear many flight attendants say is, “Stay away from pilots.”  Obviously, we (flight attendants) aren’t referring to actually being pilots. There is […]

You Must Be My Soulmate

There is a lot that I never predicted about my Flight Attendant Life.  Once, I remember I said that if I was going to work for a different airline, I would only want to work for Southwest or Hawaiian, but I followed that by saying, “Not Hawaiian, because I don’t want to be based in Honolulu. […]

Flight Attendant Diet:  Sugar Craving Solutions

Growing up with a Mommy dietitian, making healthy food choices was a habit that formed when I was a little, but this doesn’t mean that I wasn’t, or still am not, invincible to sugar craving munchies.  Oh man, do I ever have a sweet tooth!!!  When I fly loooonnng days, my sweet tooth likes to sneak up on me.   Any […]

The Americano Life

Disclaimer: When I write tired, my filter vanishes.  That being said, those that know me, or don’t know me, please don’t worry, or pity me.  I think that, as abnormal as my life may be, I’m talking normal fears, normal reactions, normal struggles.  Every one struggles in life at certain points, I just happen to […]
