Social life being at Emirates is a bit difficult. There are many pitfalls as well as benefits to this job. You hardly get to meet your family and rarely get to celebrate any festivals with them. Also, you can make a lot of friends, but they aren't your friends. It's very hard to get similar rosters, so you never get to see people you like because one of you is always flying.

3. Amazing dress code

Emirates has a dress code that allows its women staff to wear the red hat, a red lipstick & a uniform which is different for pilots & air hostesses. Men have to keep their hair short and well-groomed. They must be clean-shaved upon boarding, with nails cut short.

The cabin crew majorly faces health issues. They're constantly jet lagged, sleep deprived, crazy body clocks, no food or too much food, different time zones, flying over the poles and getting exposed to radiations (more chances of getting cancer than a normal person), PCOS, varicose veins and much more.

5. Sense of responsibility

Contradictory to what many people believe, 'flying professionally' doesn't loosen you up as many other adventure sports do. Flying professionally makes you a more ALERT human being. Being a part of the cabin crew is the responsibility of the utmost kind. Being a pilot consists of the fact of being aware & responsible for human life and the machine, that costs a ton! 'Flying professionally' makes you much more than just 'disciplined.'

6. Because in Emirates, safety comes first

Emirates believes in the safety of their clients & machine. Look at how immensely beautiful their air hostesses take these travelers through the safety guide. The airline hires about 5,500 cabin crew per year, from more than 200,000 applicants who compete for this post to come out as the best flight attendants.

Free tickets to travel all over the world for the flight attendants & their family members. Being an air hostess, you meet some of the most amazing people on board but also the meanest ones. You hear them yelling at you for something which is out of your control, but you can't answer back, so you put a fake smile on and go through it but yes it affects you because you're human too.
