Thomas’s Answer

"Typical Day At Work
On a daily basis, Flight Attendants greet passengers boarding aircraft and direct them to assigned seats. They check to ensure that food, beverages, blankets, reading material, emergency equipment, and other supplies are aboard and are in adequate supply.

A typical day for a Flight Attendant will also include:

Announce and demonstrate safety and emergency procedures, such as the use of oxygen masks, seat belts, and life jackets.
Prepare passengers and aircraft for landing, following procedures.
Conduct periodic trips through the cabin to ensure passenger comfort and to distribute reading material, headphones, pillows, playing cards, and blankets.
Attend preflight briefings concerning weather, altitudes, routes, emergency procedures, crew coordination, lengths of flights, food and beverage services offered, and numbers of passengers.
Verify that first aid kits and other emergency equipment, including fire extinguishers and oxygen bottles, are in working order.
We asked some Flight Attendants a few questions to find out what else does their work day look like. Here is what we found.

Other responsibilities
Besides their typical day, Flight Attendants also reassure passengers when situations, such as turbulence, are encountered. They may also heat and serve prepared foods.

On a weekly to monthly basis, Flight Attendants inspect passenger tickets to verify information and to obtain destination information. They might also assist passengers entering or disembarking the aircraft.

In addition, they operate audio and video systems.

Although specific duties may vary, many of them announce flight delays and descent preparations.

To some Flight Attendants, it is also their responsibility to answer passengers’ questions about flights, aircraft, weather, travel routes and services, arrival times, or schedules."

Sean’s Answer

This is tough as the role is always changing. However, generally, you will report to the airport/aircraft an hour or more prior to your flight. You will then perform the appropriate checks on emergency and service equipment before welcoming guests on board. Once guests arrive you begin the flight! You can have multiple flights a day depending on the length and days can b short and/or long!
