Cabincrewbincrew @trollydollytraveller : "• Cabin Crew Shifts •
Let me tell you a little bit about how my shifts work from day to day, week to week and month to month. I will do this over three posts as there’s lots to tell you!
With short haul crew I operate two sectors per day for example today I have done MAN - FAO - MAN. This may not seem to bad to you because the flight time is around 2 hours 30 minutes, however there’s a lot of extra time in our full shift that passengers don’t see us doing.
Before every flight departs we check in 1 hour and 15 minutes before. This is the time where we complete flight/bar paperwork, SEP/First Aid crew briefing, security search the aircraft as well as check all equipment is serviceable and present. Last but not least we welcome all of our passengers on board! We then work very hard throughout the flight to make you all as happy and comfortable as possible serving preordered meals, drinks and snacks and tax free/duty free shopping (depending on if we have flown outside of the EU). We always get at least 1 hour turnaround down route, this can differ and may be longer depending on slots. In this time we disembark all of the outbound passengers, have 8 minutes to security search, make sure there is no lost property and clean the aircraft. (Yes we do the cleaning this doesn’t get done by another company). After this we board our inbound passengers in time for our slot back to base. We repeat the process during the flight again but it’s usually more food and soft drinks as apposed to alcohol. When we get back to base we disembark all of the passengers, security search, make sure there’s no lost property and then we pack our bags and get off.
We can work anything up to 16 hours and if necessary we can work 2 hours into discretion if the whole crew are happy to carry on. .
