Examples of flight attendant job descriptions.
A lot of people have this misunderstanding about what exactly are the duties of a flight attendant. Many people think that flight attendants are their to serve food and drinks to the passengers and that's all.
Well to clear that misconception, flight attendant's main responsibility is the safety of everyone on that flight. Serving food and drinks to the passengers is just an added bonus for the passengers. If safety was not a big issue or concern, there would be no flight attendants on flights, which means no food or beverage service.
Flight attendants go through a very intense training for at least six weeks. This training is usually everyday , even weekends. The training covers all the emergency equipment, fire fighting and emergency scenarios as well as many other book and observation training.
