  • 10 Strict Rules Flight Attendants Have To Follow
    Subscribe: goo.gl/Hnoaw3
    Flight attendants seem to have a dream job, traveling the world and getting paid for it. But there are so many weird requirements that cabin crew must meet that you’ll never believe. From having long enough arms to not having visible tattoos, there’s a whole swathe of rules and restrictions. When it comes to uniform rules, flight attendants have to follow strict jewelry, piercing and appearance policies. Some airlines even explicitly request certain skin qualities. Emirates is one of the most precise when it comes to makeup, and you’ll be shocked at the level of detail in United Airlines’ and British Airways’ handbooks about hair and nails. From BMI scores to eyesight tests and smoking bans, it’s amazing how difficult it is to pass all the assessments. Watch our TheTalko video to discover 10 weird requirements to work as a flight attendant, and tell us in comments which one shocks you the most.

    Most of these seem aceptable, but the BMI weight thing? I get it, and there should be some kind of rule like this, but it should ONLY be that people(female AND male) should be able to move comtherably around the airplane. BMI is not always accuate, as it only takes 2 facters into consideration, height and weight. Dwane Jonson is "overweight" acoding to his BMI, because he has so much musle. And if a woman has large breasts(something she can't control) her BMI would not take that into consideration.

    The bmi thing has to be fake or not as strict, because I took a flight yesterday on American Airlines and two of their women were definitely over the 22 when was super old and they just keep walking through and hit you with their hips not even caring. And the other one was a young girl who was also larger. It was an awful flight

    Well, at least flight attendants have had one task eliminated from the early days of commercial flight: They used to have to help pull the airplanes out of the hangars!

    Height, weight, arm length- must be able to carry out certain tasks like pushing a 250lbs. cart, fitting into a seat, opening emergency exits, or helping passengers with luggage up to 35lbs.
    Tattoos- True
    Jewry- only piercings on ears
    Smoking- no drugs or alcohol
    Eyesight: (very false) “Able to see clearly with correction lenses or contacts”
    Hair, clear skin, makeup: Unknown restrictions (says just a professional look)

    I don't understand why these regulations are so weird. Most, not all, were considered standard regulations for ALL professional jobs, and this was at a time when not everyone had a tattoo and nobody dreamed of blue or bright colored hair after the age of ten. I'd like to go back to those days of adults acting like adults and not pierced/inked unicorns.

    Restrictions for safety makes sense, but it's nuts that they also judge by hairstyles, jewelry, makeup, and nails! Can't they be slightly more accepting!

    Cabin Crew NEVER EVER lifts Carry on Bagage for Passagers. They‘re Not allowed to do that because there is no insurance in case a bag falls out and hurts someone.
    This applies at least to all german / European Airlines.
