Flight Attendant Life

About Me


Just Keep Swimming

It is so, so frustrating, especially as a “writer” to not be able to say what you want, or to have to speak so poorly. To be getting words or grammar wrong all the time. It’s exhausting having to use my brain so much to say something so simple. I found myself worrying that the foundation I have (the words and phrases and structures I’ve learned) is not strong enough to be building new grammatical structures and words and verbs on top of it. I wondered for a second: “Am I in over my head?”

What This Flight Attendant is Thankful For

We’re talking gratitude. Giving thanks, on behalf of all Flight Attendants, to the BEST passengers. And things I’m grateful for personally, as a flight attendant working in these uncertain times, and as a regular human living in these uncertain times.

The 11 BEST Things About Fall in New England

Fall in New England is arguably the best season of all. Being a bit of a beach bum and realllllly loving a lightly-packed suitcase, I am always sad to see the weather change in September. ::Le sigh:: But whether we like it or not, the leaves turn and seasons change.
After Labor Day, New Englanders reluctantly make our peace with the end of summer and the dawn of our next season. And it is a pretty great season.

Holiday Travel Tips: DO’s and DON’Ts for 2020

It’s about that time. The lights are up, the sales are on, and Netflix is chock-full of cheesy, comforting Christmas-movie goodness. Many of you will want to travel this holiday season, despite being in the midst of a global pandemic. And far be it for me to judge. Being around friends, family, and those you hold dear is one of the best parts of the holiday season. I get it. But if you will be traveling to see them this year, against the advice of healthcare professionals, there are a few things to keep in mind.

A Day in the Life

Recently I had one of the most quintessential flight attendant days. It was like something out of a movie—a comedy, where the protagonist (me) can’t catch a break and finds herself encountering one obstacle after another in an almost too-much to-be-true fashion. I was on zero sleep and a time crunch and shit was just going wrong. But honestly, it was so typical I should have expected it. And so, rather than becoming frustrated or giving in to feeling bad for myself, I laughed. I laughed at the situations I get myself into, the lengths at which I have to go sometimes to get myself out, and this crazy scattered life we live. It was so good I decided mid-day, between one missed flight and one cancelled, that I’d write a piece about it here.

My Flight Attendant Origin Story

I’m asked often and in varied ways how and why I became a flight attendant.
“How did you get into the airlines?”
“What made you decide to do this?”
“Did you always want to be a flight attendant?”
I decided to answer these questions. To let you know a little more about myself, what I did before, and how exactly I ended up here—a full-time flight attendant.

Getting Grounded: Homeless to Homeowner

Long before I became I flight attendant, I considered myself “flighty”. I’ve always dreamt of far-off places. Felt restless, unsettled. Got itchy when relationships became serious, when routines stretched beyond months and into years. The thought of signing my name [...]

So, How’s Work? 10 Ways Flying has Changed since the Pandemic

As a full-time flight attendant flying through the pandemic, I’ve been getting a lot of questions.
How is work going for you? Do you feel safe? Is your job safe? How are people behaving? What is it like being on the road in these times? I figured I may as well write a post about it to answer these common questions, clear things up, and reflect on just how we’re getting through these very unique times.
