Become a flight attendant pretty simple. To get to the training, it is sufficient to pass an interview and medical examination. Month theoretical course, 30 hours of flight as a trainee - and all. Few people are not on probation: the company is not profitable to dismiss such employees due to training and form costs.
For flight attendants are important knowledge of English and certain external parameters. But the idea that the flight attendant should be a model - a myth. Taking into account only the height and weight.
Growth - to be able to get the luggage to passengers undersized (girls or grandmothers). A weight - not to overload the aircraft.
