A cabin attendant may also be called flight attendant cabin crew or gender specific air hostess/stewardess or purser. Cabin crew forms the supporting staff on a flight, apart from the pilot who may be a captain or commander and his co-pilot. Depending on the kind of airline the cabin crew works for, the demands of the work vary, but basically consist of taking care of the comfort of passengers. Most airlines prefer at least a High School or some college education though graduation may not be a requirement. Jobs are available with local and foreign airlines and these are usually advertised in the newspapers and websites. Then there are private and government run airlines.
