WHAT IS IN IN MY FLIGHT ATTENDANT BAG

Have you ever wondered what a flight attendant bring in his/her bag? I will show you some things I personally need during a day at work.

All the accessories listed below, I carry in this FlightCrew5 Crew Cooler from Travelpro. This little (or actually quite big) bag really holds a lot. I use the front and the top pockets for my accessories and the big cooler compartment for food.

First and most important. Up to date licenses is mandatory to bring to work. Medical, CCA, ID-cards for the airport, passport etc. I also need to bring an electronic or paper version of my roster.

Anti bacterial wipes and gel. To stay clear of all the bacterias onboard.

My hands, and gets super dry while flying so I always make sure to have a good hand lotion in my bag. I also have a face mist in my bag to keep my face fresh and radiant throughout the day.

A mini pharmacy. Nasal spray, allergy medicines, sore throat lozenges and painkillers. Nice to have, just in case.

To count 189 passengers in a hurry it is essential to have a click counter nearby.

I do always bring an apron, flat shoes and a seal scissor. Even if we are flying non-service flights.

Announcement booklet & hi-vis vest.

An extra long charging cord and a power bank for my iPhone and/or iPad.

The one and only lip balm, some lip glosses and lip sticks are must haves during a long day. These are my favorites.

Last but not least: body mist, deo spray and perfume.

That was about it. Let me know if you have any questions!

FROM CABIN TO COCKPIT

My name is Frida, I am a 22 year old girl and I am born and raised in Norway. I love spending time in the nature, I love to travel and I am very fascinated by the aviation industry.

I have now worked as a flight attendant for 2 years. Already before I started as a FA, my dream and goal was to become a pilot. During the last two years I have used my days in the cabin to soak up as much advices and information as possible, to learn more about being and becoming a pilot.

Even though cabin life is slightly different from the pilot life behind a closed door, I feel I have some kind of understanding of how the aviation world looks like.

«Every fairytale has an end» and this will be my last summer in the cabin. In August I start my pilot training.

I started this blog to share my journey from being a flight attendant to become an airline pilot. I want to be visible for the next generation of pilots and I hope I can inspire other future pilot students with my story. This blog will easily give you a little of everything; the everyday life as a FA, travel tips and later on the pilot student life.
