Brave Wings, Big Dreams

They think it’s all glamorous. But lemme tell you the facts of a day in a flight attendant's life.

They think it’s all glamorous. But lemme tell you the facts of a day in a flight attendant’s life.

These trolley ‘dollies’ are the best looking things you have seen since you walked into that airport. And you are single and all set to see them again on flight. Well! Let me introduce you to the first one. She is Chinese and has left her 3 year old son back home 5000 kms away in Shanghai, along with her heart.

The second one out there has an annoying boyfriend who’d call her the minute her phone switched on because he is an insecure creep. And that young pretty thing there is just out of college chasing her dreams and wishing to go globe trotting while working as a flight attendant.

Now let’s turn the tables and see what they think of you when they look at a good looking eye candy like you.

The first one is still thinking of her baby…it’s like as if her brain’s back there too, with her baby. The second one looks at you, even notices you, but then that fear grips her where she can picture you having a fist fight with her over possessive boyfriend. And the third one, she’s a free bird, young, single and is even throwing some hints at you and probably it could be your lucky night.

But you need to realise that by the time they land it’ll be almost 18 hours from the time she left her house and they are just waiting to get out of this pressurised environment and breath some fresh air and catch some peaceful sleep. She is not just a trolley dolly, she flies with brave wings, big dreams and is your only hope in the sky if something happens to you.
