"We never stop learning to this day. We constantly take specialization exams since it is necessary to be totally prepared for any situation. Our job is not as easy as it seems from the outside. A flight attendant has to provide comfort, and most importantly, passenger safety. The responsibility is enormous but we must always remain calm and friendly. You have situations where, for example, something makes a thumping sound in the plane and a hundred pairs of panicked eyes stare at you - you just have to smile at them, saying all is fine, and they immediately calm down."
