We’re not just here to pour your soda

I work for Delta as a flight attendant and everyone thinks of us as a waitress or waiter, but guess what we aren't! Our first priority is to keep you safe. We actually take classes and learning self-defense, how to take care of violent passengers (should it happen), how to handle an emergency, and even how to do CPR. I sometimes think being a flight attendant is harder than being a police officer. At the end of the day Delta or ANY airline has to hire people who can handle it. NOT everyone can.

It does sound like u get good training which is comforting to know when flying....But if u offer a drink or meal during the flight wouldn't u be the one to provide the needs of the passengers or has air travel become self serve...Do we need to get in line?

Yes I know about the control the flight attendants must have! It shows when I take a flight the ladies have to be in control at all times for safety matters ! Keep up the great work Theresa

Is it true you have to be skinny? Just wondering. I heard rumors and gossip and you have put an end to most of it and I thank you for that. I truly hate gossip and the mouthes of gossipers.

Not an easy job. Now a risky one too. Flight attendants have greater cancer rates due to ionizing radiation at 30000 feet.

It can't be easy dealing with people at that altitude especially after a few drinks I'm sure not all are hard to deal with but it just takes a few to ruin your day
