Flight Attendants

Advancement Prospects

A number of advancement opportunities are open to flight attendants. They may advance to supervisory positions such as purser (sometimes known as the first flight attendant, senior, or lead flight attendant), or become an instructor or airline recruitment representative. They may also have the opportunity to move into the position of chief attendant, representing all flight attendants in a particular division or area. Although the rate of turnover in this field was once high, more people are making careers as flight attendants, and competition for available supervisory jobs is very high.
