Flight Attendant Reveals Dark Secrets of the Job | Informer
This former flight attendant reveals what it’s like flying for both low-cost and premium airlines in Asia, “I’ve seen a lot of flight attendants spiral, there’s a lot of suicide in the industry."
The only KPI that matters is your appearance, so if you have bad skin or gain weight then you’re suspended to fix those issues before stepping back onto the plane. She’s seen flight attendants resort to drug use and plastic surgery — with a colleague dying on the surgery table from getting liposuction.
She’s dealt with a passenger throwing hot noodle soup at crew members, an intoxicated passenger masturbating naked in his seat, a suspected Mafia member smuggling guns onto the plane to the pressures of entertaining high-level politicians whilst the airline is turning a blind eye.
All those years as a flight attendant have changed the way the Informer perceives society, she says “it’s great when you start, you’re being paid thousands to travel to all these exotic places but I just did not foresee this other side of the industry”.
