First of all, it should be noted that while female professionals are often referred to as flight attendants or flight attendants, in men, the most used term is flight attendant or flight attendant. However, the correct term to designate both is cabin crew, whether male or female.
By this, we mean that a flight attendant or cabin crew member refers to the same profession.
The profession of flight attendant requires dedication, patience (a lot), education, and friendliness. To work on national and international flights, the professional must always be ready to receive passengers, take them to their seats, help with their bags and clarify doubts and information.

How Does The Selection Process Work?
Each airline may have a different process, but, as a general rule, it all starts with sending a resume. Candidates who meet the basic requirements are invited to the following stages, which are face-to-face and eliminatory.
As a general rule, the selection process for a flight attendant is divided into the following steps:
- Evaluation of the image and physical appearance;
- Foreign language test;
- Group dynamics or individual psychotechnical tests;
- Medical evaluation;
- Final interview.
If the candidate is approved in all stages, it will be necessary to complete the flight attendant course, where all practical issues of the profession are taught. This course is taught by the airline itself, sometimes free of charge, sometimes with allowances. However, most of the time, the course is paid for by the candidate himself.
The average duration of the course is 5 to 6 months. In addition, expenses with food and accommodation must also be added. Note that these values are merely exemplary, varying according to the specific company and also age of the flight attendant (แอร์โฮสเตส อายุ which is the term in Thai).
