The best flight attendant and cabin crew jobs in the Philippines are in this hub. I’ve listed the best airline companies hiring flight attendants, too. It's 2014, it's about time to fly and soar higher...

Being a flight attendant, cabin crew and stewardess is a very rewarding career because of the higher pay and higher status attached with it. Look at that gorgeous uniform, how lovely would that be! Perhaps, the feeling of it is as uplifting and as fantastic as the feeling of flying in the air, so high above the clouds. Whew, being a flight attendant could be heaven.

The airline and flight attendant corporate world and careers are growing rapidly here in the Philippines and I’ve listed on the later part of this hub the airline companies that are hiring cabin crews, stewardess and flight attendants both local and international. Before we go there, let us first talk about the main reason why you’re here basically…hahaha yup, let’s talk about the salary of flight attendants. Hey you, cabin crew, how much you're worth? :)

How much is the salary of flight attendants in the Philippines?

The answer to the question everyone is interested to know about…how much are the salary, wages and benefits for flight attendants in the Philippines? According to worldsalaries.org, flight attendants’ average salary in the Philippines ranges to $914 a month (around 40,000 PHP) based from the NSO (National Statistics Office)

According to PAL (Philippine Air Lines), the number one airline company here in the Philippines, domestic cabin attendant gets P34,619 to 37,619 a month, including productivity pay, transportation allowance and rice allocation while an international cabin attendant receives P50,741 to P60,136, while a flight purser gets P67,880 to P73,570. They also disclosed the details of the perks and pay of its cabin crew opposing the claims of FASAP (Flight Attendants and Stewards Association of the Philippines) months ago regarding PAL’s airline crews issues…

· additional pay for every hour in excess of their tour of duty ($50 + $20 for international flights, P1,250 per hour for domestic)
· first-class hotel accommodation at domestic and international stations
· transportation allowance (or free pick-up from/to residence)
· free meals in flight and on ground
· crew shuttle to/from airport

. thermal clothing allowance (twice a year)
· shoe allowance – P1,200 for male, P800 for female (twice a year)
· uniform allowance – from P11,022 to P16,376 (every 18 months)
· suitcase – costs from P1,563 to P3,647 (replaced every 2 years)
· complete medical and dental coverage for cabin crew and their qualified dependents

· 13th & 14th month pay
· unused days off converted to cash
· unused sick leave converted to cash
· perfect attendance award – equivalent to one month pay + per diem
· retirement benefits – 1.5 month for every year of service.

The airline said that the cabin crew also receives per diem,
- when staying overnight at an international destination ($45-$70)
- when on a technical stop ($100)
- for every regional turnaround flight ($20)
- for every domestic flight (P185)

**data may change without prior notice

Anywayz, Cebu Pacific, another airline company here, has no public details regarding their wages and salary range for their flight attendants and airline crews. The good news is they are currently hiring flight attendant and cabin crew jobs continuously for their expansion and international service. I’ve heard they need around 300 flight attendants today. So expect more and more flight attendant job vacancies.

Filipino flight attendants and cabin crews

Filipinos are everywhere around the world. And Filipinos are known to be very multi-talented and versatile. Because of their fluent English both oral and written, unique charm and good looks, Filipinos can be very good flight attendants and cabin crews. More Filipino flight attendants and stewards now are seen both in local and international airlines and it’s so obvious why airline companies and airline passengers love them.

OK so recently, I’ve seen someone linked an interesting video on twitter about Filipino flight attendants demonstrating flight instructions and entertaining at the same time. LOL

IPAMS (Industrial Personnel and Management Services, Inc.) is the only licensed agency in the Philippines accredited by the POEA to hire cabin crews and flight attendants for airlines companies in the Middle East like Qatar Airways, Saudi Arabian Airlines and the Emirates group. Visit their latest hiring and interviews below:

How to become a flight attendant

To become a flight attendant in the Philippines, airline companies offer training for qualified candidates and applicants. They require applicants to have completed at least 2 years in college, must be single, must be below 27 years old, speak fluent English and Filipino, females must be at least 5’3’’ in height, and males must be at least 5’6’’, nice appearance and good looks are an advantage. They require applicants to have clean complexion and nice set of teeth. So smile and show those perfect set of teeth. Flight attendant training course covers practical activities and exercises on customer service, inflight service, survival swimming, emergency procedures, and first aid. The course includes thorough discussions about cabin crew profession and also various sessions on personality development and good speaking. It ends with resume submission and interview for the real flight attendant job.

Flight attendant interview questions involve mainly testing your good speaking ability and customer service skills. The questions focus more on what would you do in given flight emergency situations and procedures. The key to impress the employers are confidence, preciseness, friendliness and proper flight attendant knowledge.

Yes, flash those perfect teeth and smile for the passengers. Wow, this is a cool Hub, blaise. I learned so much from this. The perks you list here are really nice. What the hell am I doing? I ought to be a hostess or Flight Attendant myself, at this rate. Ha. You did your research well. Lots of salaries and rates. Cabin Crews have interesting jobs. But being away from my Cassy would be too much, I think. I wonder could she get a job with me? She could fly, I could give out the tea and refreshments. LOL. It would be so awesome. :D Nice to be first to comment too in here. Love this Hub, blaise. :)

I am a good swimmer, Cassy is better than me, she does several laps of the gym pool no problem. Serving the food would be great. But what food do they serve? Can it be Singapore Airlines? Oh wow, their food is so delish. Yummy. I like the Attendants uniform. I can fit into things better now, since I lost a few pounds. (My Mum says I now look thin, sheez, I cant win. Hah.) Us serving together on a plane, now that is cool, isn't it? Cassy is more responsible that way. We should have Cassy give you swimming lessons in Bora, if you like. :D She is really a pro. Take care, Blaise. XO

Wowee your Cheeky girl has it all! I wonder what that girl can't do :) Singapore's cuisine looks mouthwatering. Speaking of, I was looking for cheap fun tour to visit SG before the year ends. LOL Cheap flight costs like 3000PHP roundtrip. Then saw a tour package flight plus accommodation for only 10000PHP. It's not Singapore airlines though. LOL Yup, the FA uniform are sexy. Lucky me, too I can fit anything LOL Asians are slim hey :) Wow, that would be cool free swimming lesson and my coach comes from the UK :D TC moi friends XO

Uuum...she can't fly the plane, and ...um....um...I will think of something else. LOL. Isn't that pesos, I have no idea what the conversion to my money is. Okay, Singapore is a very modern and nice country. So good choice, Blaise. That Asian cuisine works a treat, Cassy took me to a London restaurant and we had something "..Adobo". It had chicken in it and months later I can still remember that taste.

I envy you truly, there are so many wonderful places and islands there to see and visit. You would look good in a uniform, Blaise. ;)

Ha. Cassy is a patient teacher, and a safe pair of hands. (She was even better than my driving instructor in my driving lessons. I am so lucky to have her...) She can coach and it would be just sweet. :D Oh, such a lovely holiday..... (sighs) LOL. You take care, roll on the weekend. Planning another poem here... XO

with regards to height, I heard Cathay Pacific doesn't really had the height requirement because one time I've seen a f/a in cathay who's not that tall... and she said that you just have to reach 208 cm arm-reach, standing in tip-toe is also fine...

@Cathy - Ok so curly girl can't fly a plane? What else she can't do? LOL yep, it's in pesos, hmm it's around 250 USD. Don't choke, I know it's freaking cheap.

I'll read your new poem that's for sure :) TC

@Cassy - Yep, Astra Nomik mentioned your name. She always does. I wonder why? LMAO Damn we are crazy hehe Yep very lovely job..hundreds of feet away from the ground, ha just amazing! Hey your pay is higher coz you're curly. LOL Cheers! TC moi friend

hi!! anyone here from Philippines? im really curious to apply at Philippines Airlines.... i want to be a flight attendant at PAL, im 23 years old, i have the looks, height, im a BS Nursing graduate, & everything...except for one thing, the weight. IS THE WEIGHT REALLY NECESSARY???? i mean does it really have to be proportionate with the height? my height is 5'4", im not obese... im overweight... i like have an excess of 15lbs... but ive heard that weight doesn't really matter, as long as you can move freely/ or fit the aisles on the plane. on my appearance, im chubby looking. my classmates during college & friends were the one's who gave me this idea to be a flight attendant. SHOULD I TRY TO APPLY?? :/ i have this cousin, who's bigger than me, she's an international Flight Attendant for more than 10years already, im just confused if i should apply, i guess im so shy to try. i need encouragement & opinions.

& by the way, another thing that im so shy to try coz i have this asset, that others think that is really good, but i don't think its good..hehe i have a big butt/As*. :S

Hi twentythreegal! There's no harm in trying hey :) If you dream to become a flight attendant at PAL, go for it. Don't let it just be a dream ;) You're just 23, you're still qualified and you speak good English, I think you can pass their qualifying tests. Some airline companies are very strict with the height, but Filipinas are commonly petite so lots of airlines are now accepting pretty and smart ladies though below 5'7''. Try it, who knows you'll be flying next month ;) Big butt is not a problem. It's more than an asset LOL I know someone who is below 5'4 and has a sexy nice ass and now a flight attendant in Emirates Air. I suggest you try to apply to all airlines to grab more chances of getting hired ;) Good luck and all the best to you! Cheers!

what's the best to get rid of pimple(recent) pimple scars? im planning to apply as a cabin crew but these would surely be a great hindrance :(

twentyfive profile image

twentyfive 5 years ago Author

Pimples surely suck but from my experience, the more you apply something on them, the more they rebel and become so aggressive. Seriously, I've seen people who've tried a lot of derma consultation but pimples still come back. It depends upon your skin, too. You should observe your skin's reaction to skin products. When I get pimples in the summer, I just wash my face more than the usual and apply some cleansing toner after that. Next day, pimple gone. :) Hope this helps. Airline companies really require cabin crew and flight attendants to have clear skin complexion. Good luck and bless ya! :)

The Author of the FIRST FLIGHT ATTENDANT TRAINING PROGRAM in the Philippines, approved by TESDA, she opened a school in Makati for the public and the aspiring flight attendants to have a chance to develop their skills and personality, and compete at the International arena, she was an International Flight Attendant herself, and now a businesswoman, WINGS was the first school she had offered the public. MA. CONSOLACION "MARLA" PAREDES MARTINEZ, beautiful, brainy but very simple, the kind of person that will settle in putting her on the side. She has her school in Las Pinas City, CCARA - Creative Careers for Advancement Training Center, brilliant in her ideas when it comes to Aviation courses as she is very much concern in employing many dreamers in the Aviation Industry, given a chance, Marla will still develop more courses in CCARA. ............... please, let us support this kind of people, people that are more concern of giving inspiration to others.

Interesting post. Thank you for sharing this wonderful information. With those perks, who would not want to become a flight attendant? Another good thing about being an FA, you get to travel A LOT. You can go to international destinations with this kind of work. The downside is that you are often away from you family.

HMogan 5 years ago

Agree with Joan Guzman re WINGS being the first and only government approved training center for aspiring cabin crew. For the information of the public, this company was bought including copyrights by Dr. Helen Mogan and her family last 2006 and the former owner has agreed not to use the same materials for another cabin crew training center. WINGS is successfully operating to this day in Paranaque City after a brief stint at the Burgundy towers in Makati City. WINGS commits to the highest professional standards in recruiting students and finding suitable training opportunities abroad and here at home. Becoming a flight cabin crew is not very easy...only 1% of applicants are accepted. Hence, training for the application process alone helps a lot.

Nice little article providing a rare insight into Cabin Crew pay in the Philipines. You give some very usuful details like salary, allowances. I think your data about the cabin crew shoes allowance and how often it is paid is very good. The fluency of your english in this article needs a little find tuning. But overall very good. I enjoyed reading your article and it is full of content that is not easily available elswhere.

Single ladies are very much welcome ;) If you're married and very much qualified, then it's OK. Employers always hire smart and confident cabin crews. Marital status may be their last standard. If you've got the looks and skills, you'll surely get hired. Good luck!

NURSE who wants to be F.A. 5 years ago

Hi everyone! I'm a Registered Nurse here in Philippines. I wan't to be a Flight Attendant soon but after reading all the requirements for job vacancies of a cabin crew... I think I'm not applicable to two which is about WEIGHT and SWIMMING thing? :( sad to say I'm 140lbs. but my height is 5'4 1/2 ..Actually before I'm almost 160lbs.I just lost 20lbs., I would just like to ask IF THE WEIGHT IS REALLY NECESSARY and if You really have to be a good swimmer? Thanks.

twentyfive profile image

twentyfive 5 years ago Author

Hi there! Flight attendant training is necessary before FA and cabin crews are officially accepted. Swimming is covered from the training. So there's a chance you'll learn it from there. It's an advantage if you're good at it already. But if you really wanna be a flight attendant, you have to set aside those what ifs..Yup, airline companies prefer slim flight attendants and they have to really have nice skin and have to look good. I don't want to give you false hope but if weight is just your problem, you have to try to lose some and be the best you can be. Thanks for dropping by and GOOD LUCK! :)

NURSE who wants to be F.A. 5 years ago

usually what's the ideal weight requirement? thanks again..!! have a safe day...

twentyfive profile image

twentyfive 5 years ago Author

The truth is there's no specific weight requirement for flight attendants as long as your height is proportionate to your weight. Some companies though require their FA to maintain a BMI of 25 and a 32-inch waist. In the Philippines, there are no restrictions as to weight. Like I said, it should be in proportion to your height. Take this link as a guide: http://www.flightattendantexpress.com/flight-atten... What is important is the candidate have no physical or mental limitations that would impair ability to perform routine or emergency job duties.

It's a pleasure. Have a good day, too :)

@jilean - there's no specific requirement with height as long as your weight is in proportion with it. I mentioned that from the previous comments above. Thank you. :)

@aydi - I've never seen any FA wearing braces. Airline companies prefer nice set of teeth without grills on 'em. You can remove them if necessary. Competition is always there. Anywayz, you're pretty still :)

@bo - The Philippine Airlines has that FA training center. You can apply there and have the training. Though there are other schools for that. The flight schools I listed at the end of the article offer FA courses and training. You might want to check it out. :)

@Jonalyn - like I said from the previous comments, there's no certain height requirement as Filipinos are naturally petite. What is important is that your height is in proportion to your body. Thanks :)

@Aileen - There's no race requirement. Yes they hire other races as long as you're pretty much qualified. You speak fluent English, look good, and has a pleasing friendly appeal with confidence, you'll have the chance. God bless you too :)

I applied in Philippine Airlines. I passed the impact interview. Sad to say that I did not passed when it comes to medical. I have a color deficiency. I did not expect that I will fail just for color vision. I thought that color vision is essential for pilots only and other types of job which has a normal work routine with regard to color coding. I hope that there is a medical treatment for color blind so I will be able to apply again in Philippine Airlines and pursue my dream job.

Sugoi! (Awesome in Japanese) This is nice. I like the informations you showed 25. Are you also a flight attendant? I'll appreciate for some interviews & adventures in applying that can be shared in this blog as well.

This is not on my mind before, but based from this blog it excites me in trying.

I heard that Cathay Pacific is not already hiring Filipinas now since that union or rally (something about that I guess) that happened before.

Anyway, there's no harm in trying.

Aw, thank you Rain24! Glad this article helped you. It’s a pleasure.

@Sinitchikudo – You’re sugoi! Loved that word. Thanks for the Japanese word. Nope, I’m not a flight attendant, my friend’s sister is. She works in Saudi Airways. The interview and training process are mentioned from the article. I also shared another article at link found at the end part of the article..”Flight attendant jobs hiring in the Philippines.” Yup, there’s no harm in trying. If you have the guts and confidence, go for it. Best of luck my friend! :)

@enna – sorry for my late reply. Things have been hectic. There’s a solution for that and you’re right. Just wear them contacts. lol Nothing would block your way until you let it..Thanks for your inspiring comment. XO

@Aleksandra – Nice name btw! :) I think someone asked that question from the other comments above. Since, I love my readers, I’ll answer it again.. :) Yup, flight attendant and cabin crew recruiters PREFER candidates to have nice set of teeth, nice smile, neat complexion and confidence. You can just remove your braces. If you wanna impress the hiring company, put your best foot forward. In this case, show your perfect smile, brain and confidence. Best of luck. BTW, I wore braces before and they’re cool but not so cool when kissing… LOL Thanks a bunch for the comments..Bless ya!

Hello Nekochan! Yep, all personal documents are required to whatever career. I didn't put them above coz they're self explanatory I think lol Yes, passport is a must. You can ask the flight attendant recruiter or airline company hiring to give you time for that. Getting one is fast nowadays so it's not a big problem for you. Best of luck! :) Thanks for dropping by!

being a strong swimmer is also an advantage since some airlines (with high standard) requires it. they need FAs who can swim with their clothes on. :)

Hi Devi. You mean Cebu Pacific? I know they hire continuously. As to Cebu City, I don’t know any agency that train and recruits cabin crews and flight attendant coz I’m from Manila. Maybe some readers may share any info? That would be helpful. Thanks for dropping by. :) Tell us what you heard ok.

Hi Lorj! Health requirement is always a basis of hiring to any job actually. Especially job abroad. Here, they usually require candidates to pass physical test, mental tests (which involves psycho too somehow) and medical tests (usually include blood test, dental, vision, urine, HIV, hepa, and other severe sickness and the like..) Med clinics also consider past med records to asses if a candidate is fit enough to work. As to your friend, I dunno why he was accepted. Maybe he just had a flu? Lol Thanks!

Hi Lea! I absolutely agree. It really depends upon the airline company especially if it’s domestic or local..If the company is huge and international, then expect high standards and huge salaries, too.

Hi guys goodmorning!

I am also an aspiring flight attendant. I also had my own fair share of experience when I applied in Saudia Airlines on the 18th of August and in Cebu Pacific on the 23rd of August.

Yes, you should have the height, which is the average for females would be 5'3. I am 5'6. :)

You should have a good set of teeth, meaning well aligned teeth.

A good pair of legs, no bruises, no scars, no varicose veins. I am saying this one because literally, they will let you lift your skirt upon initial screening and they will let you turn.

Apart from all the qualifications, you should always exude confidence. But, not to the point that you sound annoying or airheaded.

Confidence is the key and give a shot of LUCK also. Because even if you all have the physique, the beauty, the height, the legs, if it's not meant for you, it will not be for you. So, Good Luck girls and God Bless. :)

Hi Vhaya! She went through the DMIA, Diosdado Macapagal International Airport and applied in the Emirates directly. Luckily, she was chosen from the applicants..

Hi Shei! Braces are just temporary right? Ask your dentist for invisalign (invisible braces). Wear contact lenses, 5'4 is acceptable to other local airlines here hey. :) Scar? Apply scar remover for 6 months. LOL Seriously, winners never quit. Quitters never win :) Good luck!

ciklay 5 years ago

My height is 5'1 1/2, I really dream of becoming a cabin crew. Whenever I check the websites of different airlines, it always frustrates me because of the height requirement. I'm working on a cruise line so I'm always traveling and see different international airlines and cabin crew and I noticed that some of them are more petite than me. I don't understand and it's not fair because the one who discriminates usually is the recruiter in Philippines. They will measure your height first. Why don't they do the interview first? Sometimes, they don't even check what is written in your resume. Can you please advise? Thanks.. =)

Happy Morning everyone especially to the hub author..


that's why i really wanted to take up Tourism in Lyceum but i ended up taking a Business Mgt course in UE and wasn't able to finished my course due to some reasons. i am very happy that i had the chance to work overseas but everytime i ride an airplane, my desire to pursue that dream awakens. I still want to become a Cabin crew. is it possible if i am already in my 33years? i stands 5'6 1/2 medium built, fair complexion,nice smile, driven, and i believe my work experiences as a service crew in my college days has molded me to have a great customer assistance. i am just worried bout my age, but most of my friends always tell me that i don't look my age..and im not that good in swimming too...but given the proper training i am a fast learner. thanks for reading my story and GOD BLESS US ALL...

@Sarji milkshake – wow, I love milkshake LOL Airlines companies hiring cabin crews and flight attendants usually have their own preference just like all of us. But then in the end, there’s sorting time for the deserving candidates. If you’re 33, you must not quit especially if you look like 21. :) Got what I mean? Do you watch ANTM? The winner is not always the youngest or the prettiest, it’s always the one who blooms as each level reaches the final ramp.. It all depends upon our performance in end. Show the company you are serious and you really want to be IT. If you have what IT takes, then you are IT. :) Good luck!

@Samantha – swimming can be learned anyways. It’s the willingness that will get you there. Pass your resume and you would know if you could :)

@Teppay – I have posted the links from the official website of each airline company hiring flight attendants. All you have to do is go there(their website) and submit your resume and requirements. It’s OK to be afraid rather than be afraid to admit you’re afraid. Just apply and show up on the interview and you’ll know the rest of your career path. Good luck and thank you for dropping by.

@Liea – oh wow, thank you too! I may not be here all the time but I’m trying to reply when I can :) I love my readers so much and replying to queries is my way to thank them :) Thank you so much.

for the concerns about the ability to swim..if you really wanted to get this job, you will try everything to learn and acquire this ability just like what I did..I didn't know how to stay afloat until I got accepted as trainee, I didn't want to waste the opportunity given to me so I tried very hard to learn how to swim well..good luck to all aspiring FAs here =)

Hello twentyfive, I also want to try applying to be an FA, I stand 5'4" and have fair complexion, long legged, long arm reach, physically fit, can also speaks and write a little Mandarin too. I have a problem though, I have a denture, I lost teeth in an accident when I was young, If needed I will have it fix.. and undergo Fix bridge instead. I am not a good swimmer also, but I'm willing to go through swimming lessons. I do not have customer experience background also, I'm currently inclined to IT right now more of working with computers. This weekend there will be a cabin crew event. Should I postpone applying, and fix my teeth first? And Oh I have legs stretched marks... would this affect also... Thanks very much! More power!

Hi Sarji! Happy morning to you too! You are welcome. I’m so glad you love reading this page. Don’t forget about us when you became a cabin crew. God bless you. :)

Hi Nadeen! Yes, it’s one of the requirements. Other airline companies would be really impressed if you know and speak many languages. It’s not so hard to learn and speak English. Just watch English shows, movies, read English magazines or web pages, and speak it often, you’ll surely learn it.

Hello Shafiq I listed the airlines companies hiring flight attendants on the article above. Thanks!

Hi Pia! Yes, it is.

Hello Songlala! If your teeth is not that obviously broken, you can try applying now. Stretched marks? Why not use concealer. They work after all. Nobody’s perfect. Try and be confident. Believe you’ll get it. Thank you.

Just want to share my experience when I applied in cebu pacific as cabin crew. Actually I was just referred by someone who worked there I tried since i'm already 25. But sAd to say I was not able to pass the screening, hehe the only comment they said is that I have white heads on my nose, they were really strict. The recuiter was also speaking in tagalog. She told me if I want to reapply I just need to improve myself. (ofcourse)^_^. And also they will look at your legs, elbow, they will turn you around to see your back and you should have a clear complexion. One of the applicant was a graduate of tourism but she also didn't pass, the comment to her was that she has a lot of freckles. They were really looking for a very nice and clear complexion. The height is not really matter as long as you have a nice skin. I am confdent with myself I know I'm qualified but maybe it was not really for me. I still need to improve myself I should have done facial. ^_^.

@Azeer hi. IPAMS is a well know trusted agency. I think the recruitment is on hold, wait for them to complete the requirements so POEA will make the go-signal. The best thing to do is ask your agency what is going on and if the application will resume soon. While you wait, apply for another airline company. Good luck!

@Dahia hello. Everyone has a chance, you only have to prove you have what it takes. Pass your resume to airline companies and give your best shot. Become a flight attendant. Good luck. :)

Currently I have day job, and I cannot quit/resign anytime soon due to family financial support. So I prefer taking up night school instead. PAL will not offer training courses until 2nd qtr of 2012.

by the way, I'm sorry guys..I just want to clear things up..January 9, 2012 screening in Cebu Pacific will only be a RESUME SUBMISSION AND INITIAL PHYSICAL SCREENING ONLY..when we say GRAND RECRUITMENT in Cebu Pcific, its a one-day processing..before you go home, you,ll know if you pass their standard or not..just the same guys, Goodluck ang see you on monday =)

No job is easy. If you're flight attendant you'll fly most of the time. Being hundreds and thousands of feet above the ground hmm that's not so easy. hehe It's a cool job though as salary and perks are rewarding.

@Lana hi. Good complexion means, your skin must be neat and skin color must be pantay.

@Mae hi. Oh wow, you’re tall I’m jealous. LOL I heard some people with same problems here, about scars..can’t you conceal it? It is so bad?

@Jen hello. Oh dark underarms, butt and others? That’s a first here. lol If you can’t afford expensive whitening creams and skin bleaching treatment, why don’t you try Glutamax soap. Use it twice a day. Rinse the area and apply the soap, and leave it for 3 minutes. Use it during your shower and bath. Use it twice a day, After 3 months, you’ll see the good result. I know someone who uses it and I’m impressed LOL Thank you for dropping by. Come back here when you see some improvement will you? :)

@Jansen hi. Molars are not so obvious when you talk and smile so I think they wont be a problem as long as the rest teeth especially the frontal are lovely. :)

@Of course you have a chance. Everyone has a chance here what more if you’ve got experienced. Just pass your resume to the airline companies hiring cabin crews listed on the article. Best of luck!

@Rereihirashima hello. You can apply online while waiting for a general recruitment for flight attendants like that Cebu Pacific and Philippine Airlines schedule every now and then. Recently, (January 9, 2012) Cebu Pac. held recruitment. You can always visit this page to see updates and announcement shared by fellow cabin crews and applicants. Saudi Arabian Airlines are hiring right now. The post is so fresh. Read it from my previous comment above.

If you’re worried about your acne scars, I suggest you do something bout them. Are they that bad? The more someone plucks them out, the more they rebel. I suggest you treat them gently. Just wash your face when you wake up, and before you go to bed. Apply toner, they keep the pores intact. And don’t use tough facial products like astringents etc. Use Olay Total Effects before putting powder. And it’s important to use light powder and talc. Skin is everything. Thank you.

@Jaycee hey. It’s an advantage if you’re a swimmer. But it’s not a major pre-requisite as you will learn it naman during the training. Teeth will be very good if you let them cleaned by the dentist or better have them whitened. It costs around 1500.

@Mithium hi. You can apply to the listed airline companies in the article above. Best of luck to your FA career. :)

rosa 4 years ago

hi everyone,

I just want to share my experience.

Im a psychology graduate and I work in the corporate industry. But it has always been my childhood dream to become a flight attendant. To make this dream come true, first thing I did was, I checked the Airline websites and job advert websites to see who's hiring. So I suggest to those who don't know how to start, you can do the same thing that I did.

Last year, I applied in Airphil Express, emailed them my resume and I believe within the week they rang me and invited me for an interview (in some cases, the airlines post their hiring adverts and invite walk in applicants). I was told to come in corporate/business attire: sleeveless blouse, blazer and knee length skirt. (They will make you lift up your skirt to see your legs and remove your blazer to see your arms. There should be no visible scars or tattoos when wearing the uniform.)

It's also important to come early because it's a first come first serve basis which I believe is the same with Cebu Pac, otherwise you will wait for hours before you get interviewed if you come late even for just a minute(which happened in my case, a lesson learned the hard way). Anyway, in any appointment it is important to be punctual. Unfortunately, the interview didn't went well for me and I didn't pass the impact interview. They said I was a little too shy and reserved. So what does that imply? From the interview's name itself, you have to make an impact using your looks and personality. Be confident, let your dynamic personality shine, and always show them your warm and friendly smile.

And just like what 25 said, if you want this so bad, you must be willing to do anything and everything to reach it.

Facial scars and blemishes: There are a LOT of beauty centers offering facial services nowadays! They can even out your skin tone & remove black heads and white heads. OR if it isn't so bad, a well applied make up can do the trick. Always moisturize, put on sunscreen and apply toner for tighter pores. Don't have 20/20 vision: If im not mistaken, most airlines allow the use of contact lenses. Unless it is really impossible for you to improve, there's no reason for you to give up.

Even if I didn't get in the first time, I'd still give it another try. I believe that if you invest for improvements and you will reap the benefits later.

Id like to thank the author for this very helpful post. And also thanks to you, for taking the time to read my story. Good luck!

yeah indeed its an advantage :( so i need to attend some swimming lessons before i can even get in.. Regarding sa teeth.. ibig ko sabihin di na siya completo.. my wisdom tooths gone.. is it like a requirement to have complete set of teeth? or sa front lang?

@Rosa hello :) Oh wow you made my day reading your beautiful post here. Thank you for sharing your first experience applying for a flight attendant. I love Airphilexpress coz their planes are awesome, clean and new. And unlike any other airlines, they’re always on time. Plus their fares are so cheap. I admire your determination in making your dreams come true. I am so sure you will get what you want soon. Since it’s your first time, I know it’s a very good lesson to use on your next application. You are so young and smart! I believe you will fly soon. ;) Cheers to your flight attendant career! Don’t forget to update us about your next venture. :)

BTW, you might want to try Saudi Arabian Airlines. They are hiring right now. And foreign airline companies are not that strict.. I feel that you will be accepted there. :) Best of luck!

@Jaycee hi. Don’t lose hope. Swimming can be learned. Oh wisdom tooth? If it’s not seen when you smile and talk, I think you have no problem. :)

@Me22 hi. Recruiters have no color issue hey. As long as your skin is neat and pantay ang color. Filipina skin is lovely. Have you seen Rihanna? She’s the sexiest women in the world last year from a famous magazine. Lol

@Minee hello. Just apply to the listed airlines I included in the article and submit your resume. Or better yet, apply personally to local airlines in the country.

@Golda hi. Airphil is hiring and Saudi. Why not dare apply and fly :) Best of luck to you girl.

@Dandah hello. Majority of airline companies prefer 21-30 tough it’s always the looks and confidence that impress them. If you’re 32 and look 23, why let it stop you? There is always competition and preferences. But there is that one factor that will catch an employer. Leave a mark, be unforgettable, be you want to be. If you failed here, why not try international airlines companies. Before that, I leave you this, the youngs got the raw beauty but the mature got the experience.. :)

@Che & Kate hi. If your molars are not obviously missing when you smile, then you can make it. :) Just flash that pretty face and smile. :)

@Michelle hello. There are other factors recruiters and companies look for to flight attendant and cabin crew applicants not only the nice skin but also the confidence, knowledge and right attitude to work. If your scar is not too obvious and you have all what it takes, then I think airline companies would hire you. It’s just a scar after all, don’t let it scare you. :)

@LanceEiffel hi there. Yes, some companies require physical check ups not only airline companies. Others reject those with tattoos too. I know employee selection process is taking to strict nowadays and competition is so high. You will find pretty faces during the recruitment days, you will find simple applicants too. But like I always say, looks is just one of the qualifications. There is still attitude, knowledge, experience and charm. If your skin is not so perfect and flawless, don’t make it an issue. Just act like, hey nobody’s perfect. “I am beautiful no matter what.” Keep that in mind. :)

I will make a post about male flight attendants soon. Thank you for dropping by and leaving a comment. Bless ya!

@Crisel hi there. Thank you for sharing your dream since you’re young girl. Please read the article and the comments so you can have a big background and idea on how to be a flight attendant. Wishing you a great career someday.

@LanceEiffel. You are a guy? Oh good luck with Glutamax hehehe One more tip for making dark skin whiter, after shower always make sure you pat dry your skin especially underarms, inner thighs and those hidden and nasa kasingit-singitan (laughs here sorry I’m required to speak in English here as much as possible) Apply mild lotion, avoid those which are scented like Victoria’s Secret..Basta keep your skin free from wetness. If your skin is so dry and flaky, that’s another thing. lol

Catherine Cubinar 4 years ago

Hi guys! Credits to the one who wrote this article. It gave me the needed resources. Thumbs up! I am Catherine Cubinar. I grew up in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. I rode an airplane many times that made me want to pursue an Airline job. Now, I'm on my 2nd year in college, soon to be in 3rd year. I'm currently living in Philippines, taking up AB English at Asian Institute for Distance Education. Yes, I'm homestudying due to travel reasons. I am a writer of novels so I'm pretty well good at English. I'm also mastering French. I know some few Arabic words. I'm not sure if I'm 5'3 or 5'4. :D Yesterday, I started seeing airline sites and they're accepting college levels. It made me feel so excited. My only problem is.. I have a scar (just a little) on my right leg, near on my foot. Is it okay if I just put a concealer with stockings on or would that disqualify me? And also, I have an eye problem but can be corrected 20/20 via contact lenses or eye glasses. So, on my eye issue, it wasn't really a huge problem since I can use eye glasses or contact lenses even though I can't afford undergoing an eye surgery. And last.. My dentist before told me.. "You have a really good set of teeth, but you should try braces to improve them MORE." If ever I'll be wearing braces, it'll only take me few months. My biggest frustration for now is my scar issue. Anyone help? :( BTW, People from Philippines who are interested to become a Flight attendants can add me up on Facebook (Catherine Sison Cubinar). Hoping for a good response. Thanks! =')

@Michelle hello :) Who knows you guys would meet in the recruitment. LOL Oh I forgot, Saudi is hiring flight attendants and you must apply at IPAMS agency. You can search it. I’ve seen the post in Facebook last month and it says it’s until April. So hurry. :) We’ve talked about it on the previous comments above. AirPhilExpress is a very nice company too. It’s growing so fast. I salute you, yes never say never. :)

@James hi there. That sounds vampirish hehehe. No, they still hire male flight attendants. I’ve seen more males on Cebu Pac though. Hey, don’t quit.

@Redbutterfly hello. As long as your weight is proportional with your height they might hire you. They conduct interviews as much as other companies. It depends. They conduct initial screening then HR interview then final interview. You know the recruitment process is always unpredictable so you must be too. Be unpredictable, be different, then you will be irreplaceable. You mentioned you had OJT in Singapore for 2 years? Wow, so that’s a big merit already. Go girl apply and FLY! :) Don’t you forget to treat me when you got your first pay LOL

@Carol hi. Swimming can be learned so convince them you can swim. They conduct cabin crew training kasi so you can develop more your skills and knowledge. Did you even read the article?

@Sandy. Yes, everyone has a chance. You just have to prove you are worth it. You are fresh graduate so recruiters get that. Magpakitang gilas ka.

@Catherine hello. Oh wow, you are very interesting person. Wow, I write poetry and stuff too. What is your novel? I could read it or buy it if you could tell me. You see just from the way you talk, people listen already. I’m sure you will definitely get those airline companies attention too. :) Oh you have a little scar? If you feel you’re beautiful, recruiters will feel it too. If you feel you’re smart, people will believe you are. So don’t take anything to stop you from being a flight attendant. I know you’re closer to that dream now. :) Best of luck. Oh you can add me on fb, at facebook.com/fehl.twentyfive

I'm a graduate of aviation and I major in flying, got into different industry after graduation, i had 150 hours of flying time when i graduated. I'm 37 now and I was wondering if i can still be accepted for a cabin crew position at any airline?

what if I have flat nose do I still have the chance? height 5'10", male,clean fair skin,graduated from college.

andrea 4 years ago

hi there twentyfive! I'm going to graduate this march. I'm already 24 years old and since high school,to be a flight attendant like my mom is what i want to do after I graduate from college. I do not see myself working outside the airline industry. I'm 5 feet 8 inches tall and has nice legs. The problem is, i have pimples that is very difficult to conceal. I have minimal pimples on my forehead and left cheek that's why it's not so much of a problem for me. However, my pimples at my right cheek are the ones that are very difficult to hide. Is there any chance for me to be accepted as a flight attendant? I really don't have the means now to go to a dermatologist because it's too expensive. When I was in college, I tried applying in cebupac thrice. I didn't pass the initial screening the first and second time i applied. On my third try, I passed the initial screening but didn't pass the panel interview. I also applied in Qatar Airways but I wasn't able to make it to the final interview.

Your advice will really be helpful... I enjoy reading your articles,comments, and advice. :)

yeah, seems he's not responding haha LOL anyway, have you heard about iCATS? well, i wanna first have my training ground there as a Flight Attendant then after it i guess, that's the time im gonna apply for real in the airline industry.. i realized its better to have some sort of ideas or knowledge much better in a training specified for cabin crew for a better chance of being hired.. hehe so, thanks again for the cheers and for the moral support nakz :) i salute you too dear ^___^

Sorry for replying late. I was on holiday..

@Banp hi there. Oh wow what are you waiting for, I have listed the airlines companies hiring FAs in the article. Good luck. :)

@Catherine hello girl. Why doncha publish them here in Hubpages. I publish all my poetry, crazy stories here. lol I love my readers. You will meet lots of them here, writers, poets, novelists, lyricists… my account here is Blaise25. It’s cool to share your creativity :) My FB is fehl02@yahoo.com

@Paige hey. If your veins are not distracting, why would let them stop you. Go on girl. :) Nobody’s perfect. Even models love photoshop lol

@Robert hi. Um hair thinning? If you’re still frickin good looking why not? Hehe Like I said, if you won’t apply, you won’t get hired forever.

@Johnny Boi hello. Wow, why didn’t you try pilot jobs? I think there are lots of jobs for you aside from cabin crew. 37 has a lot of experience.

@Johnny. The qualities for flight attendants and cabin crews didn’t say candidates must have perfect pointed lovely nose.

@Andrea. I know how you feel. But don’t give up. Pimples are part of puberty but if they’re still there in your twenties, it’s not good anymore. I’m no dermatologist but I love reading magazines, web pages and oh I read a lot. Pimples usually appear due to hormone imbalance. If your other skin is flawless, means it’s not hormones.. It maybe due to skin reaction to chemicals or cosmetics in the face, soap, toner, even facial napkins.. Face is so sensitive. Try not applying anything in your face for 2 weeks and observe it. Use Johnson’s baby powder when you go out. Wash it with cold water, mild soap like Olay (the original one bought from S&R or SM.. this one is bigger than the one made locally) Always wash your face before you sleep and when you wake up in the morning. I hope this works for you.

Another important thing I read somewhere, when your hands touched anything that is used on your feet like pedicure stuff, or anything that is moist, never touch your face unless you washed your hands or put alcohol on them. Bacteria might enter your pores in the face which cause pimples that are hard to kill. Thank you for dropping by. xx

@Michelle hi girl. No, never heard of it until now. :) Thanks for mentioning it here. Training is a big stepping stone in this career coz some centers are already affiliated with airline companies. This is a cool way for you. I’m glad you’re taking this route. Don’t forget to drop by here again and tell us what airline you’re working. :) Nakz. It’s a pleasure. I love giving cheers :) xoxo

@Al hey. Good luck on your interview. Forget the nerves, try a glass of vodka. lol I kid. Tell us what happened..

@Raye hello there. Yes, the airline companies I mentioned in the article are on on-going hiring FAs and cabin crews. All you have to do is visit their website which I linked and submit your CV/resume. Let your resume/cv stand out from the others. From the previous comments, there are some fresh recruitments discussed like AirPhilExpress. Just read them again. Thank you.

@Pretty_yikah hi there. Yes AIrPhilExpress is hiring right now. thank you for sharing that girlie :)

Hi im a newly registered nurse. I wanted to be a flight attendant since i was a kid. But just realized today that i'm deprived of my height. Omg! I know this is lil kind of frustration but, its fine! Anyway, im standing 4'11! Is it possible for me to make it?! I think i got the other qualifications! Owww! That's confidence we called anyway :)

Catherine Cubinar 4 years ago

I still can't find you on Facebook, dear. Can you add me up? cutiechickbabe16@yahoo.com :( Anyway, I'm only 18 years old and Cebu Pacific Air's continuously hiring cabin crews, particularly, national capital region. So I just need an advice or some encouragement. I am really worried about my scar in front of my right leg. It's visible from afar though it's not too big, it's kind of noticeable. Every monday, they're having an initial screening and resume submission. But I'm always worried about my scar, although you did told me that it shouldn't scare me. Can you give me more advice about my scar and is it okay to go for it at this young age? Am I too young?

And also, I'm interested to make friends with people who wants to reach the same goal as mine.. to be a flight attendant. kindly add me up on Facebook. same name, thanks. :)

Catherine Cubinar 4 years ago

Can you teach me how to make a website like this whereby anyone can post their comment? I want to post my stories online. I'd love to hear a response from you. :)

Catherine Cubinar 4 years ago

@Desiree: I've not intention of discouraging you but.. The Airlines minimum requirement for height is 5'3. Why? 'cause your height will help you assist the passengers especially if they're having a hard time putting their bags inside the overhead lockers. But the good news is, Airlines nowadays are no longer as strict as they used to be. My advice is.. You can still give it a try! :)

@Miss Kitkat hi. Depends upon the hiring company. Some usually conduct initial screening with both short interview and physical screening. Have a break, have a Kitkat. :)

@Sam hello. Yes, they are very much particular with face and skin.. Looks and appeal is important to them. Nonetheless, your attitude and skills too.

@Desiree hi there. Typical Pinays are short. OMG, you made me smile. If you did this to anyone in the panel, I think you might be accepted. Cheers! Never give up ok :) Win it! I saw one flight attendant from Zest Air when I went to Boracay. She’s about 5’’ in my estimate.. :)

@Catherine hello there. Happy to see you dear. Sure, I will add you on FB. If you are beautiful and feel it in your bones, and skin (winks) your scar won’t matter. Is your scar too bad? I wonder if petroleum jelly can’t vanish it…

Yes, you can post your stories online by using Tumblr, Weebly or Blogger. They are easy to set up. If you don’t know how to set them up, they usually have tutorials. No worries, everything is easy to do in this high techy time. Thank God :) You can also ask me anytime. We’re friends anyway :)

@Anne hi. You are only 13, you still have more years sweety. No worries. Just run, jog, or do bikings in the mornings, and some stretching, I’m sure you will reach more than the requirement height. :)

@Karissa. Reading magazines and watching English flicks can help everyone improve their English. And oh, try to speak in English more often than you used to..

@Gunjan hi. Why not come for the initial screening and start to make your dream come true.

@Aj hello. Registered nurses are welcome like every aspirant. I haven’t heard about nurses on board though on domestic airlines. Try the international airline companies.

@Lya hi there. Like I said, if your false teeth are not distracting and pretty when you talk and smile, that maybe no problem unless they require dental check up pronto.

@Abby hello. Sure you can apply if the company hiring FA require 5’1’’ and up. In case not, try your luck and impress the recruiters by standing out from the rest.

hi, i am currently working as a CPA, i applied in PAL a year ago but got a CONDITIONAL status due to my teeth. i am wearing braces now and by June 2012 it will be removed. by then i can call PAL again and schedule for their initial screening, again. i already tendered my resignation effective April 20, 2012. my only concern, more of a fear, is that my eyes are no longer 20/20. can i still have the chance?

@Marion Reyes: Just pray to God before going to an interview. Just be honest to the company regarding your eye problem. Mine isn't 20/20 too. I am nearsighted. Anyway, show them what you got and what difference can you make in their airline. Good luck and God bless! :)

Catherine Cubinar 4 years ago

Guys, I think you should choose the Airline you want to work for. (You should have many choices) Save the link of their website so you can be updated. I think that's a smart thing to do. :)

@Zed hello. Usually airline companies schedule their recruitment days. Though walk ins are seldom entertained. You can try your luck anyway. I have listed the airline companies in the article. Just read their career section and you can contact each of them. I suggest you prepare your best cv/resume and upload it to their system. Apply to all the companies. Once you did that, it’s also like a walk in. Only cheaper and you saved petrol too:) Bookmark the websites and check them out everyday if they have hiring scheds, they usually post it on their homepage or career section. Better yet, always be here to get an update about the other applicants too. They always exchange hiring details. Thank you. Good luck. :)

@Raye don’t give up eh. If they don’t hire males right now, why not try other position in the airlines.

@Catherine hello girl. Thank you so much for answering some queries here. You are so amazing. Thank you for adding me on FB too. I cant see your pic with the scar thing….all I see is flawless skin :)

@Nathan and Ben hello. Oh wow, I think there are more guys here now. I know I have promised making a page about male flight attendants in the Philippines. I will publish it soon. Sorry for keeping it longer..hectic days here…

@Irish hello girl. Some companies are really particular with tattoos. You can try concealer or paint spray (for skin). If they asked you if you have any tattoo, be honest. If they didn’t ask, lucky you :) IPAMS is an agency hiring OFW. Recently, POEA granted accreditation to Saudi Arabian Airlines flight attendants recruitment. I think the post is from Feb. to April 2012. IPAMS is located 1455 Leon Guinto Sr. St. Malate, Manila Metro Manila Tel. No. (632)5248661 up to 63and (632)5246412 / 5254229

@Catherine hello girl. How are you? Airlines prefer 18 and above but below 27. Age doesn’t matter even in FA recruitment. If you think and act like 21, or smarter than that, why does it matter if you’re 18? Girly, your communication skills and confidence are more mature than whoever said that. lol You’re too young, then that’s a plus.

Your website is amazing. Oh look at you. I’m so proud of you. You’re 18 and already achieved that. You can add that website in your portfolio. It’s a lovely credit.

@Irish hi there. Wow, keep us posted about your IPAMS date. Hehe I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you. You are beautiful. You can wear stockings on the interview yeah, plus a nice above-knee skirt, and top. Wear that corporate appeal. If they examined your body and skin and found out about your tattoos, don’t worry about them anymore. Just say “please, I want this so much, I promise my tattoos will be invisible if you give me a shot. ;)

@Raye hi. PAL prefers to give an update by phone. Make a follow up :)

irish 4 years ago

hahaha!! thanks fehl. :) i'll keep you guys posted. I just bought this max factor concealer today and it really worked for my leg tattoo!!! :) btw do they hire skin headed guys for FA's.

Catherine Cubinar 4 years ago

Add my website to my portfolio? That's a good idea! Thanks fehl for your encouragement. When I become an FA, from bottom to top, up there in the sky, i'll always remember you. :)

@Irish hello :) Max Factor cosmetics are one of the best. Is the concealer good? Would love to try it hehe I'm not so sure about male FAs. Lots of people were asking about them here. Is that your BF? In case they won't accept him, why not try the other airline positions like aircraft maintenance staff. One of my friend used to worked at Cebu Pac and his day rate was like 1000 a day plus free ride anywhere whenever he wants ;) Just saying, if your guy can't be an FA, at least he could be in the same company with you :)

@Catherine hello sista! Yes, add it for Pete's sake. hehe It's impressive. Also add "online content writing" to your skills. :) Aww, really? You get hugs for that! I will pray you get hired. I got a feeling you would. Don't rush into things..just enjoy doing what you love doing each day while you reach that dream :) xxoo

yeah that's my husband fehl.He is 5'10 and got a good set of teeth :) Max Factor, get the pan stick, works wonders! the saleslady from another store didn't notice my tatz until i told her, i also tried the Sally hansen airbrush but the Max factor concealer works alot better.So today, instead of going to IPAMS i tried calling them first just to check, they told me that the SAUDI air just finished hiring last Feb. She said that they might open for FA post this coming April or May. :) Hopefully i can make it by then. Im taking swimming classes and i can now finish 30 meters! :)

@Irish IPAMS will continue to hire as it is the only agency that has been granted a license by POEA to hire flight attendants and cabin crews to Saudi Air. I pray you will fly soon. Cheers!

@Raye I hear you. I wonder how much is a flight from there to Manila? In the mean time, just upload your resume to the airlines websites and attend the job recruitment when they announced it.

hi 25... just red all of the inquiries nd ur advices above :)ang i am so enjoying reading it.really. im also an FA wanna be hehe and i spent my OJT with PAL nd was assigned to passenger services division wen i was still in college but after college i didn't took the liberty of applying as one cos im afraid m might not get hired or sumting.i know! that was just so coward , though i know to my self im qualified Im working in a callcenter now to improve my Comm skills a lil bit as wel as the accent.and it does a bit hehe.im 5'5" inch tall fair complexion. my teeth are not complete already buy wen i smile its not that obvious. im pretty much familiar of the qualification of being FA nd now sudenly felt the 'calling" that i have to try it na cos i know im not getting younger anymore nd if ul not try ul never know right?i passed the impact training iwas in conditional status.i was just kinda bothered cos one of the things to improve is the hairstyle its not that big issue to them however they suggested to try other hairstyle that will not look very flat cos my face is rounded.u have any suggestion on what's the best hairstyle i cn do to my hair not emphasizing my rounded face?i tried the one sided Bun updo and its kinda look flat acc. to them.:)also does anyone here knows what kind of Exam is FA applicant tking? any ideas?sorry i have a lot of question and i still have more. hehe... im just so exited being one and i know ill be... (yeah! thats the spirit) Kudos to ur hub 25. keep inspiring 25! like this amazing woman "Star" u guys might wanna check this also http://starvillanueva.com/2011/07/28/nearly-5-year...

@Yana hi there. Yes some airline companies prefer flawless and smooth skin. Pimples and moles in the face are not their priority. They always believe they could find pretty faces without blemishes or moles. But don’t give up, who knows if those doll face women could be smart enough…

@MitchL hello girl. Wow, you have a lot of experience already not only in being an FA but also being in a call center agent.. I think you’ve got more chances coz of that. Did you add me on Facebook? Is that you? You look so nice. So you’ve got the pretty face, the experience and skills, but you worry bout your hairstyle? hehe I don’t know so much about hairstyles but my face is rounded too. Face looks more rounded if the hair is super flat. It would look more Asian if you curl it too. I always go to Hair Asia to cut my hair and I love that Jennifer Aniston layer kind of hairstyle. Looks good on rounded face. Also, think of local stars here who have same face shape as yours… like Michelle Madrigal, Toni Gonzaga etc. Just make sure you blow dry your hair before you see the recruiters. That way, it will never look flat. ;) If they still don’t like how you look, leave them and try international airlines. They don’t know what they’re missing… ;)

Hi. My eyes are no longer 20/20.. is being nearsighted a big issue for cabin crew recruiters? I don't know how to swim too. :(

Catherine Cubinar 4 years ago

Hi Fehl. I missed the grand screening of Cebu Pacific Air last march 30 due to exams. Well, I just get a little nervous sometimes. When negative thoughts are starting to pull me down, I think of those people who are physically qualified but don't have the right qualities of a cabin crew. Including those women who are tall, has good set of teeth, has a perfect skin, has a good height.. But don't have what it takes to be a cabin crew due to lack of confidence, experience and knowledge about the job. And I also think of my cabin crew acquaintances who got that career but was given a good consideration. Some of them don't have the perfect vision, some has scars, some don't even know how to swim at all, and some are not that fluent in english. Just a little encouragement for everyone who wants to pursue that career.. Let God turn your dreams into reality. I know that all of us are imperfect. Maybe some people look perfect on the outside, but fail to show a good attitude. So it has to be both balanced. Let's persevere! It's never going to be an easy road. Stay positive! If you fail an interview or people say negative things about you, improve your physical appearance and remember that every failure is a chance to succeed. Look guys, I traveled so many times. And I think, the most important factor that will make you worthy of that career is your attitude. I encountered bunch of flight attendants who are not able to deliver a good customer service, they're not smiling on passengers who are probably tired and some of them are not sensitive enough to the needs of the passengers. See? So don't mind those women who looks like a beauty queen. Your attitude, your knowledge, your experiences, are on the top of the list! I'm only 18 and I firmly believe that if you're really determined to reach that dream, and you entrust to God your future, then that dream will definitely come true! I hope I gave you guys a huge encouragement. =)

Hello guys! I’m sorry for being here so late.. You know how hectic is Holy Week :) Hope you enjoyed it.

@Raye I hear you. There’s a really huge reason why it’s calling you. It’s a calling indeed ;) Answer it or live in vain without knowing what it is and why it’s here..

@Bis You can read the article and the comments here then you will know a lot about being a cabin crew here in the Philippines. Thank you for dropping by.

@ Irish hello! Happy Easter my friend! Yes, don’t mind your tattoos, you can hide them anyway. But you can’t hide the fact that this cabin crew thingy is calling you ;)

@Palm hi. Impact interviews are usually about questions about yourself and your background, your reasons why you want this job, the reasons why they should hire you, your skills compared to others, and some tricky questions too like what would you do to some instances…

@Pam hello there. I have a friend who’s a flight attendant who told me bout her experiences. She started in the local airport near us which is DMIA to be exact. Then she joined the training and recruitment until she got hired in the Emirates. I’m not an FA, I said that in the comments here if you read them. I’m actually a web content creator and I love it. I read a lot, share a lot and love to help people when I can.

@Yafa hello. Airline companies have their own standards regarding height and weight proportion thingy. You must show up there at the recruitment and interview so you will know if they like you ;)

@Ma Ann hi girl! Oh thank you so much for the lovely comments. Good luck on your FA career!

@KitKat if you passed their medical exam, then you are ok. Wear contacts instead of glasses in the interview. It’s an advantage if you know how to swim but there are trainings for that though it really turns them on if the candidate is a good swimmer.

@Catherine hello my friend! How are you? Well, there are some more important priorities than the grand screening like your school exam :) There are more screenings, so cheers! I love what you said here. It’s so very well said. :) You need some applause :) I admire you so much, you are eighteen but have this very mature and smart outlook in life. You speak so good English too. I didn’t even notice you typed a wrong term there from the previous comment hehehe Yes I agree to everything you have said here. The attitude is what matters most. Beauty is skin deep.. Aspiring FAs must be beautiful outside and more inside too. It will reflect no matter what. Also what is beauty when the brain is empty.. Anyone can achieve what they want if they strive harder, act smarter, and turn imperfections to positivity. God will help us soar higher if we didn’t forget ourselves and Him. Kudos to you my friend. You are a very beautiful model and a big encouragement to everyone here :) *hugs* Fehl

@Raye - Where did you submit your resume? And what are the other requirements? :) It is really difficult to find airlines that are hiring cabin crews. Hope this site or other site would provide the list of airlines that are hiring cabin crew and their hiring dates. :) Good luck, everyone.

Hello twentyfive.... Is Cebu Pacific Air stick to their age requirement which is 18-25? I am now 27 years old. Do you think they will entertain applicants older that the required age?

Does Cebu Pacific also hires male cabin crews? I heard that they have this so called freeze-hiring for male cabin crews.

Hi there! When I was still young I really wanted to be a flight attendant. I'm 22 already and still I wanted to be one. The problem is that I am only 5 feet tall knowing that 5'3 would be the minimum height requirement. Is there no chances for me to get in the job?

twentyfive profile image

@Raye PAL is not the only airline company out there. Don’t let your eggs be in just one basket… Just saying, apply to others too. International companies are there to hey.

@ Reese I’m trying to do my next hub about it. My sched is so hectic these days.

@Raven yes they prefer that age requirement. But don’t lose hope ok. Don’t you quit especially if you look so 21 :)

@Mark Sea Air is hiring male cabin crew as of now. I never heard about freeze-hiring of Cebu Pac for male FAs.

@Carol Are you really just 5 feet? I don’t want to say forget about it coz I’ve seen petite cabin crews in Zest Air. Never give up ok. If you gave up, then you will never know…

I was looking for some articles regarding cabin crews and I'm glad that I get to click the right URL. :)

I'm thinking if i should remove the moles in my face. I mean they are not that big, but upon reading a comment here they do prefer applicants with flawless skin.

Another question though is I have a birth mark on my left hand. Will it be a negative point against me once I apply? And having a flight attendant training, does it really give you an advantage?

Thanks in advance!

@Al hello there. Wow you won Mr. Jolo? Congrats! I like your answer to the question about your ambition in life. What matters most in a career is your passion. If you’re happy and enjoying what you’re doing then you will earn and learn a lot :) I also admire your determination and not giving up to your ambition. I wish your dreams will come true someday and that I could see you as a flight attendant. :) What about your scar? Is it too bad?

@Trish Yes you can proceed at the screening right away. They will let you fill up an application form or pass your resume naman once you’re there. Good luck, girl! :)

trish 4 years ago

Lastly, do you have an idea of the screening process of cebupac? I don't know what to expect. But I'm still in college, I'm afraid they will prioritize applicants with a degree holder cos PAL apparently changed their cabin crew requirements, they changed college level into college degree holder. My first choice of airline was PAL, but i will try my luck in cebupac and emirates. I believe I have the qualities, but I'm still hesitant to go. I'm from davao, tomorrow is the screening in manila, i dont know wether I'll fly tonight for manila, it's ok cos my brother is in manila now. By the way, take you this page help a lot.

@Trish yeah having a college diploma is impressive. I think it's just a priority, not a major per-requisite. Major airlines still entertain college level people. I agree with Cate, it's about the charm, confidence and passion with what you want. I know some beautiful people, college graduates who tried the screening but were unsuccessful coz they were intimidated by the other aspirants and they let their nerves ruin it.

It's all about focus, too. Don't mind your competitors, just be different and be yourself. Thanks a lot for reading and sharing your views :) Mwah!

@Anne The exam is as not so geeky nerve wrecking but the screening is like the first phase of ANTM. Have you watched Americas Next Top Model? All you must do is to show them you have all what it takes to be a flight attendant. Know the following:

why do you wanna be a Flight Attendant?

why do you choose that company?

what are your special skills among all applicants?

what would you do in times of unexpected situation(they will usually site examples)?

what are your expectations?

what are your weaknesses?

what are your strengths?

Those are just the usual questions to be prepared about. If you got the looks and nice skin plus the brains, you’ll get it. Good luck! :)

@Cate cheers and let's drink to the bright future! :) Mwah!

@Cris and Genesa Hi there. Yes I know PAL and Cebu Pacific are hiring. Check out the website I posted in the article. International- at present, Qatar Airways is hiring now. See IPAMS. Thanks for dropping by here.

@Juliet oh wow, cheer up! There are still next time.. My tips for dull face into dollface are: Wash your face in the morning and before bedtime. When it’s hot (like right now summer) apply gentle toner like Eskinol Derm C before bedtime. When it’s cold, apply Olay Total Effects. Just wear makeup when you really need to… Just wear light powder at home or when usual days. In the office just wear light powder still and Olay Total Effects. Makeups specially Western cosmetics contains ingredients that cause our skin to age faster so just use Asian products to suit your skin type. During hiring and recruitment, just use light face foundation like Revlon or BB Cream and apply the next layers.. Just choose the colors suited to your skin. I think you know the basics already. Bottom line, only wear light make up and peach or pink eye shadow, plus glossy lip tints in the recruitment. Wearing heavy make up will only make you look mature and dull. Good luck :)

@Jhon having a degree is more impressive wherever company hiring. But still your confidence and charm can do a lot more with this field.

@FA Aspirant I think I have answered your question from the ‘male flight attendant’ hub I have published on another page here. Thanks and cheers!

Great page twentyfive, thanks for the all information and for replying to our queries.

I don't know if It's fine to wear colorful blazer in the screening, like beige,white, blue.

Is there any exams in the application process? I have a tiny scar in the left leg, can it affect? Who is more qualified in a flight attendant position, is it the person who has pleasing personality or a person who has the brain? just a survey, cos im so nervous, i'm afraid my nervousness will mess it all up. I have a handful of hope, i will try my luck and will wish for the best. Lastly, is there a grade limit for those who wears contact lenses? Thank you so much twentyfive more power to you!!

Hey everyone! I want to be a flight steward at PAL someday. I'm 22 years old and a nursing graduate, but my only concern is my height. I'm only 5'5" is that ok for a male applicant? My friend who took the workshop said that one of their trainers told them that PAL accepts male applicants who are 5'4" 1/2 - 5'5" too. how true is that? can somebody pls help me. btw my sister is a flight attendant at PAL too. batch 2008. HELP!!! :(

twentyfive profile image

twentyfive 4 years ago Author

@hopeful Applicant Hi there! I suggest you wear corporate blazer like black, gray, dark blue, brown and the like. Yes there are exams usually after the initial screening. Tiny scar can be concealed. A person with pleasing personality and a brain is qualified because both are in the major requirements always. Nervousness is normal. It is better to be nervous and be confident later than be too much confident then get nervous in the end. LOL Cheer up babe! You will get it if you want it badly. Medical exam will assess your vision qualification. God bless you too dear. :)

@Arjane Yes any four year college graduate candidate is much accepted though there are some companies that accept two-year course-candidate.

@Karlo hello. If PAL accept that, then you are ok I think. You’re lucky you have a sister to give you some tips and advice about applying for a flight attendant job. Good luck!

@Irene it's not required to have a passport in applying for a cabin crew job, but once you are hired you need to secure more documents like passport because even if you're in a local airline here, they still serve international flights like Singapore, Hong Kong and others. You need to have passport because you won't know when you will be assigned to abroad flights on the round..

@Cate yeah I saw from IPAMS about Qatar hiring female cabin crews. Break a leg! :)

@Rowena visit the official websites of each airline company and the local agency I posted in the article.

aries 4 years ago

hi guys! i was browsing blogs about FA and came across this. I just got in and scheduled for training this June for cabin crew position at Philippine airlines. After a long long process at last I made it. However, I'm really worried coz I just had a surgery, I have gotten my appendix taken out just recently due to appendicitis and PAL doesnt know about it. Good thing I already passed the medical assessment made at PAL medical before this thing happened. I just wanna get advice, should I tell PAL about what happened to me or not? It really bothers me coz I already resigned from my current work in preparation for the training. Though I know appendectomy is just a minor surgery and my surgeon told me it could take 2 months for me to recover. I'm still afraid that I might get re-scheduled once they knew about it Or worst, dismiss my application which I cant afford at this time. The whole application took like 3 long months. From screening, impact interview, exams and executive panel. Jeez! I really worked on this so hard and exerted so much effort.

CHICOPrecious 4 years ago

@ARIES I feel for you but for now you have to consider your health before anything else. How long would be your training in PAL? as much as I know, training will only be like a classroom environment where in you sit and listen then have an exam except for the swimming part.

I believe its best for you to tell PAL about your situation and hope that they will only resched your training. Your stitches need to be treated first. Get well soon. :)

aries 4 years ago

The training will take 2 and a half months. It's been over 2 weeks after I had the surgery and I feel much better now. The incision site is barely noticeable. It looks like a little scratch. I just hope PAL would consider my situation. I guess I would just have to tell them what really happened to me. Well thank you so much for your help CHICOPrecious. Really appreciate it. :)

@Precious Thank you. I read from the local newspaper here, Inquirer.

@Aries It’s better if you report it to them. Trust and honesty is always important in a relationship which you will have with PAL soon. Yeah I agree with Precious, health and safety is more important. Reporting it to your employer will solve whatever bothers you. Don’t worry too much. I think they will continue to have you once you secured a medical certificate stating you’re fine for training and work..

MishAskar 4 years ago

Greetings, I'm Mish a 25 year old male who wishes to be a FA. I used to teach Martial Arts for a several years and had so many experiences with so many other jobs like Construction and even being a Branch Manager and Executive Accounts Manager...But this job truly appealed to me because it had the savy of being a PR wrapped with the grace and elegance of Host and the authority of safety and protection of people like the diciplines and principles of Martial Arts. I have a somewhat fair to white complexion, speak fluent English and have been self-studying in several languages such a Svenska, Russki, Nihonggo and other Filipino Dialects such as Waray, Ilocano, Tagalog and my heritage clan dialect- Kan-kana-ey (Igorot). I am currently saving up to join an FA school here in Cubao and thought the price is high, I find it worthy for a job that puts you up a bit on the pedestal considering I could not finish my college education.

How do I get the job without having to go to the FA school as it is very costly and what tips and tricks have you got that could give me a close percentage of success in being hired and possibly sponsored to be an FA, even if just for Entry Level? I am half Arab and Half Igorot and know very little Arabic.

What do I do?

For the braces, my friend had her screening 2 weeks ago in cebu pac & the screener really like her and told her that she has the qualities of a flight attendant but she has braces. The screener told her to remove her braces and be back 2 weeks after that day. :)

PAL is still hiring but I suggest you try Cebupac, though they're stricter than PAL coz they also consider if you have a beauty with substance. And Cebupac has better salary & benefits than any other local airlines here in PH plus there's no seniority here which means you'll have a chance to fly abrod though you're still new. Better opportunities!! :)

hi PAL scheduled me for an interview on 26, any tips guys?

CHICOPrecious 4 years ago

Hi suzy! My fellow applicant in Cebupac is also an applicant in PAL. She's for final interview already and I asked her what are the questions asked during the initial interview. She was asked one question only 'who chose te color of your top?' and that's it. Very easy huh. Ü maybe if the interviewer likes you he/she will ask easy question/s but if they don't like you but you are qualified, they will ask you hard questions to test your knowledge. :) Goodluck Suzy!

suzy 4 years ago

omg..really? i hope the interviewer will like me too..lol i missed cebu pac grand hiring T_T i also want to try in cebupac. btw thanks chicoprecious ;)

CHICOPrecious 4 years ago

Just be yourself Suzy. Ü Cebupac's screening schedule is every monday, 9-11am only. Try it and goodluck with pal :)

geekierchick 4 years ago

Good day! Like many of you, I'm also aspiring to be an FA. Yesterday was my first try at it. I went to Qatar Airways' Open Day. Unfortunately I didn't get a call to come back the next day. The competition was crazy, there were literally hundreds of girls that day!

Anyway my real purpose of posting here is, I wanted to know more about CebuPac and PAL.. Because honestly I would prefer to work for a local airline as its close to home. Does anyone know what is the salary of a CebuPac FA? And what are the benefits? I want to try CebuPac and PAL, I'm just a little worried they won't accept me, I hear they want FAs that really look Filipina, whereas I look a bit foreign (just a bit, I do have some Filipino in my look, I'm half Indian). May I also ask how is PALs process for hiring? I saw someone post a comment about sending your resume to a someone's email, I just felt that that might seem a bit informal...Oh and is Air Asia hiring? Thanks guys, I'm so sorry for my questions, I just want this bad! =)

@geekierchick So how did the Open Day go?

CHICOPrecious 4 years ago

@geekierchick I know a bit about Cebupac's salary & benefits. Their salary is 12,500 per month but they have transportation allowance and productivity pay which is tax free. Ü I don't know how much but the HR told us that its huge. Hmm They don't only accept filipina beauties, I look like a korean/japanese yet they accepted me and I'm now waiting for my training. I remember I also met someone who looks like an indian, i think she's half pakistani half filipino and she's a cabin crew in Cebupac. Ü

@Suzy the address is 'training and development centre of cebupac in front of terminal 4. Beside salem complex.' :)

geekierchick 4 years ago

@leviosa i didnt make it. :).

@chicoprecious i hear the take home is around P30k... I hope you do well during training. I think i might give it a try if they have another recruitment day.

@suzy and Angel 4 years ago

@laviosa, only a few girls didn't pass the arm reach test, there were still a hundred girls interviewed after that. It would be hard to tell what they were looking for, because i had to wait in line for almost 3 hours and be spoken to for only 2 minutes hehe.

Hey guys CebuPac has a one day processing Open day event on Monday July 2!!! I think I might come. My only worry is its from 9am to 3 pm, and I won't be able to get there until lunch because of my work.. Do you think they would still entertain me if I don't come early?

@Chico if you don't mind i'll be adding you on fb. My name is Nikki Vias. =)

priority for male cabin crews compared to female is 1:3

CHICOprecious 4 years ago

@tranq i think it depends on the airline. Some airlines don't accept male cabin crew coz it appears that passengers prefer female cabin crew than male.

roseville 4 years ago

hello guys especially tewntyfive,

im so glad that i saw this page, it inspired a lot and made me feel more to reach my dreams. i really wanna become a FA since young.

Im a fresh graduate of BSNursing, 25 yeears old, single, height is appropraite in my weight,. My really concern is that, can i be able to get hired though i have a child already? Heard it to someone that when i apply i should not tell them that i have a child. this really bothers me, i dont know what to do..

Any advices please? thatd so much appreciatted. and any places that i can apply if no problem about my concern? thank you guys..

And also Ms. Catherine Cubinar, i requested you as my friend in Fb, so glad you accepted my request :-)

Pamela 4 years ago

Roseville, airlines prefer accepting applicants with no child.You cannot keep your child for long since airlines do investigate each applicants background.Sooner it will bounce back to you if incase you will deny that you have a child and if the airline will know it, they will block you in their company.You cannot keep a secret forever Roseville incase you plan to hide about your child, airline companies have their own way of knowing everything about their applicants.So be real, maybe some other job is meant for you.

Yeah I agree with Pamela, honesty is a huge thing. If a company hires you, it means you will have relationship with them, that means you have to build trust and honesty not only good job performance. Good luck and God bless..

Roseville 4 years ago

Hi guys,

Thanks you Pamela and twentyfive for your replies.. I know that I can't keep secret bout my child. That's why I asked here if airline companies accepting someone like me,. Of well it hurts to hear the truth though.. Guess I should find some other job then.

Thank you again!. And god bless

CHICOprecious 4 years ago

Hello roseville! Good news...my friend is a single mother and Cebupac hired her as a cabin crew. Ü A child won't be a hindrance in your career as long as you can express yourself to the company and impress them with your wit and personality. Ü

You should try applying in Cebupac or local airlines. You're worth is not degraded cause you are a mom already. Personality and skills plus physical appearance can get you to your dream job. :)

Pamela 4 years ago

That is a one in a million chance chicoprecious. Based from what I knew airlines prefer those with no child.But if you are a crew of that company for a long time and you will get married and will have a child they will still accept you to continously work to their company but I doubt if you are a new applicant and you have a child. Applicants who have a child has lesser chance than those with no child because I have friends who applied as flight attendant who happens to have a child who weren't accepted and they were given a hint that the reason why they haven't been accepted is because they have a child.The airline company have been honest enough to tell them they prefer applicants having no child than applicants who have a child.But Roseville can still try if she wants but I'm just sharing of the things I knew.

martha 4 years ago

Pamela, is right, I myself have applied in two local airlines here in Philippines but I was rejected for the reason I have a child.I was informed that they prioritize accepting those with no child than those who have a child :(

CHICOprecious 4 years ago

Hi @martha and @pamela I'm just saying that having a child will not be a hindrance to become a cabin crew because of my friend who got in just last month with a 4 yr old child. Ü I believe if you impress the company they will hire you no matter what. Maybe they just used the issue having a child to downplay the real reason why your friends were not able to got in.

But anyway, @roseville you should atleast try there's a chance that you could still got in just believe in yourself. Remember, If its for you God will give it. Ü

Good Luck and God bless. :)

Roseville 4 years ago

Hello everyone,

Thank you to all your comments guys!. I really appreciate this. Well anyway, Chicoprecious I requested you in fb not sure if you added me up already. Thank you for telling me that. It uplift myself to reach my goals. I should try then. And you're right, if it really meant to be and if its Gods will everything is possible. Any places that I can apply to?. Any site?. Thank you!

To Pamela and Martha, thank you also bout the concerns. I understand it.

God bless us guys.! Whatever our dreams are, in the presence is Almighty God I know we can do it!. :-)

hi 25! this blog is so inspiring! i love it! well, i was just wondering if there'd be a chance for me to be a flight attendant? since i have this 5'4 or 5'5 height. but i have always believed that gaining confidence from the height that you have will make you seem taller. People say that i got what it takes to be a FA, with this confidence level, looks, i mean everything but i doubt one thing, my height:( i hope to hear from you very soon... and btw 25, i'am a guy :)

hi! just want to ask if the height requirement is really necessary.. I'm 157cm,. 5'1 and 1/2.. i have applied to cebu pcific through jobstreet.com and i was invited for an interview on Monday. however, when i applied through the internet, i did not mention my height. Is it possible for a 5'1 1/2 feet tall female can pass at cebu pac? or are they really that strict with the height req? thank you very much! :)

Is there any chance that airlines will choose a 2 yr course graduate like me.. I was so sad today because PAL didnt consider my application because they are looking for a four year course graduates

@Jmish Why not attend the interview and let your height be not an issue :) Yes they are strict with the height but who knows.. On every rule, there is an exemption. You might be the only exemption.. :)

@Dheejay they prefer 4-year course grads although some airlines accept 2-year course grads. Preference is still a preference

Hi. i just want to ask about my application in PAL as a cabin crew. I passed the impact interview already and they gave me my initial medical to continue with the hiring process. I just have doubts with my vision thats why Im a bit discouraged. I have perfect vision at 20/20 but i am colour blind. I can not identify the number in ishihara test for color. but definitely I can tell what colour if u asked me to. Im just worried about it. there is no cure for these but in the first place it is not a disease proper. I just dont know if they are very strict on this.

GracePosh 4 years ago

Hi Leoj! Yes they are strict with that matter. I'll share my friend's experience in PAL. She was not considered since she has problem with identifying the colored number. I can't remember the exact term the doctor used for it. It happened during the grand recruitment in Diamond Hotel last month. She didn't make it to the next process. What did they tell you? I mean, do you have to wait for their update regrading the status of your medical?
