Airline Crew




Despite not having enough sleep or missing some important events like your dad's birthday, a friend's wedding or new year's celebrations, these airline crew members enjoy the perks of working in the Aviation industry. Meeting new people everyday, staying in 5 star hotels and enjoying discounted tickets (and did I mention seeing the world for free?!) are a few of the many reasons their jobs are just awesome! They've traveled the world and now they share with us their top 3 favorite destinations and what they want to do next after flying.
