Because this job requires moving around and standing, flight attendants should be in decent physical shape. They may be on their feet for long periods in a cramped space and will need to be able to help people move overhead luggage, manage equipment like food carts, and operate emergency exits. There are usually a number of additional requirements related to age and physical condition for flight attendant positions. Airlines often require certain age, height and weight restrictions. Additionally, employers place high standards on physical appearance, hygiene and grooming. Airlines also conduct medical screenings and background checks of prospective hires. Being an airline attendant means not having a regular 9-to-5 office job. They work nights, weekends and holidays, and may switch shifts frequently. Flight attendants usually work 12-to-14-hour shifts, but may work longer for international flights. However, flight attendants will get at least a nine-hour break in between flights, as mandated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

John recommends the following next steps:
Flight attendants must also meet specific physical requirements. Airlines typically have minimum and maximum heights. They also require attendants to be able to sit in a jump seat and complete a range of physical tasks, like pushing, pulling, bending, and lifting with reasonable accommodation.
You will also need to pass a background check and a pre-employment drug screening. Visible tattoos are typically not allowed unless they can be concealed with makeup.
