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
