I'M GOING TO LEARN HOW TO BE A FLIGHT ATTENDANT AND I'M GOING TO SLIDE DOWN AN INFLATABLE SLIDE, LET'S GO!

Alright, totally not what I was expecting from a United Airlines video. It's really funny!
Glad to see them putting so much into creating a cool brand image. I've always flown United, but if I didn't this would have me checking their website more often ;)

What I learned: Training is intense.

6 weeks long, 6 days a week.

They cover everything from customer service, medical emergencies, fire, and even aircraft emergencies (they have to know how the plane works!)
The final safety test involves getting an entire plane of passengers out of a plane, down a slide, and to a secure area in 90 seconds.

Check out the short video about it:

One of my friends in high school's parents were actually both flight attendants! I remember them coming to our tennis games fresh off the plane from the UK or France - which seems so cool!

I wonder how they had time for romance, flight attendants are so busy!!!

I love traveling but would like to have more time to enjoy the places I'm traveling too, flight attendants don't get much time in the countries they visit.

Would you want to become a flight attendant?

ps check out one of their security videos :)

I can't with ppl so I would rather be a traveler
Should be spending a much on the training and such. But if you clear it all, it's worth it because it'll be a dream-come-true situation wherein you get to travel to most places of the world.
@sophiamor yup... what's the process for you?
The only reason why I would want to be a flight attendant is to get free flight tickets and other airline benefits. Other than that I think this career is pretty tough because your sleep schedule is messed up and you don't get to see your family as much.
You go girl! I'd love to do it but it costs too much for training
