Air Cabin Crew Duties/Functions/Responsibilities

  • serving meals and refreshments
  • checking the condition and provision of emergency equipment and information for passengers
  • demonstrating emergency equipment and safety procedures
  • dealing with emergencies
  • supplying passengers with newspapers, magazines and in-flight entertainment
  • selling duty-free commercial goods and pursuing sales targets
  • producing written flight reports after completing a journey.
  • greeting passengers as they board and exit the plane
  • showing passengers to their seats and providing special attention to certain passengers, such as the elderly or disabled
  • administering first aid

The role can be physically and emotionally demanding; there is a high degree of responsibility involved, and cabin crew are expected to deal with all passengers diplomatically - even when feeling the effects of travelling through time zones and spending extended periods of time on their feet.

Many airlines require cabin staff to live within close proximity of a particular airport, and crew members may have to go away at short notice if on call. Working hours may involve long shifts and unsociable hours, and it may be necessary to work during public holidays. However, many cabin crew members enjoy the chance to interact with a wide range of people, and the opportunities to explore and enjoy global destinations are almost unparallelled.
