What are the qualifications to become a flight attendant?


Answer by  Dean (4035)

Each airline determines its requirements for its flight attendants. Certain personality types are more inclined to the rigors and demands of the position, which are determined by testing/evaluation.

Qualifications vary from one airline to another. Height/weight must be in proportion, good grooming, stellar personality, excellent interpersonal relations, a desire to serve and a love of travel.


Answer by  Novemberfire (322)

The basics are a high school diploma or equivalent and great customer service skills. Most airlines will not hire anyone under the age of 21 as a flight attendant and you must be able to pass a background check.


Answer by  HelpfulAndy (1107)

Most flight attendants need a high school education. The qualifications aren't very high because the airlines will give you a full training program. This includes several classes and safety training.

At the minimum, being a U. S. citizen or registered alien with work rights, a GED or better, willingness to relocate if needed, good interpersonal skills, a clean criminal background, mainstream appearance and the ability to get a passport. Being multi-lingual, having a higher education and work experience will help.

Answer by  DtheM1 (1150)

To become a flight attendant, you have to have great people skills; you need to be very comfortable in social situations and you need the ability to quickly resolve issues. Also, remember that your job is almost like a salesperson in that you're selling a product, except the product is the experience on the flight.
