An airline hostess, if you’ve ever been on a flight with one, is the person who will greet you as you arrive at the airport and take your order for your meals or beverages. After a few hours, you may wonder why you paid so much for the flight.
There are many different kinds of airline hostess jobs, but the most common is being part of the flight crew. Flight attendants work in the cabin, serving meals and beverages to passengers, and then, when the plane is over the destination, they will hand off the responsibility of service to the airline hostess. The first two types of hostesses usually go through the same training requirements, though others may be hired later in life, and so there may be more job opportunities for those that are just starting out.
Before any meal or beverage can be served, it must be put in a glass and placed on the tray or table on the plane, as the flight attendant’s table is called. The beverage must be displayed on a shelf, and before customers can pay for it, it must be pulled out. The flight attendant will ask the customer for their identification, such as a driver’s license, passport, or military ID. You may want to bring certain items with you, like your cell phone, laptop, books, etc.
Once the meal has been eaten, and the flight attendant has gotten their tray, the next step is the delivery of the food and beverage to the table. The flight attendant will take the food into the plane, and hand it to the airline hostess. The hostess will then fold up the menu, put the glasses on the table, and call out to the customer. The flight attendant will also open the seats in front of the flight attendant, and seat the customers in the proper rows. Flight attendants have to do this for every flight that they work on.
After the flight is over, the airline hostess will lead the customers to the door, and return to the plane. The airline hostess will then return to the seat that was occupied by the flight attendant, and take the glass or other containers that were not spilled.
It’s the duty of the flight attendant to remain at the door until all the passengers have boarded the next flight. They will then contact the cabin crew, which will be the flight attendants’ company, and have them call their flight back to the gate.
In the event that the flight attendant should meet a customer that has fallen asleep, and the flight attendant is going to stay on the plane, they will need to be awake, since the next flight is coming up soon. The flight attendant can wake a passenger, and they will take care of the back of the plane, and assisted with the rest of the trip. When they return, they will need to greet the new flight, and then wait for the next flight.
If you are a flight attendant, you can get help by joining an airline, by working for another type of airline, or company, or by starting your own business of doing this work. One of the best ways to get started in this type of work is to join a travel company, which could make you a very good airline hostess.
