40 Things About Air Travel That Only Flight Attendants Know

10. What’s it Worth to be a Flight Attendant?

It may sound glamorous to be able to travel the world (or nation) as your job. The truth is flight attendants have a hectic schedule and are constantly busy, and they are only paid once the main cabin doors are shut or once the flight is airborne.


That means delays and cancellations are just as annoying, if not more, for them as they don’t necessarily get paid if the plane doesn’t leave the gate. Different airlines have different policies on payment but still, think about that the next time you’re impatiently sitting on the tarmac.
