Cons: changes in schedules
It is difficult to explain the many wonderful aspects of my life as a charter airline flight attendant. There was no typical day at work. It was unpredictable, adventuresome, fun, eye-opening to new cultures, and very fulfilling. We were able to travel on our days off in whatever country we were in, our passengers were mostly Military and what wonderful and honorable men and women they are. We were very proud to give them outstanding service that they deserve.
I was trained in safety related issues and signed up to be lead flight attendant. That would be the hardest part of the job. We could have delays upon delays and then changes of schedule and it was my job to keep crew informed of these changes. Inevitably, we would not get enough sleep or slept at the wrong time. This made for a difficult transatlantic crossing. But, we learned to persevere.
