“The biggest misconception is that people think we’re only waiters or waitresses in the air. But that’s not true,” Emirates cabin crew, Siti Nurazlin (above), tells 8Days.sg. “We are on board not just for service but for safety, security and medical emergencies.”
Take it from the 32-year-old flight attendant, who’s been in the job for 10 years. In this day and age, that’s equivalent to a lifetime. We shoot the breeze with Siti, who now works in the First Class cabin and is based out of Dubai, about bizarre situations, emergencies on board and, er, interesting passengers she’s met over the years. And if her stories inspire you to take flight, good news: Emirates is holding a recruitment drive on Jul 1.
