Flight attendants are not there to be babysitters or wait staff. Although part of their job is to serve food and beverages, their responsibilities are much more expansive. The flight staff is trained to do CPR, use EpiPens, AEDs and defibrillators. Also, don’t call them “stewardesses” anymore.


They are also trained in self-defense and how to handle a situation in which there is an unruly passenger, emergency evacuation or attempted hijacking. One of their main duties is to guard the holy grail of the plane, the cockpit, to keep anyone who shouldn’t from entering during the flight.
