Wayne’s Answer

Most of the airlines require the following:
A. Complete high school or get a GED.
B. Minimum height of about 5' 2"
C. I checked 4 airlines and you need to be 21 years old.
D. You will need a Passport.

I would decide on the airline you want to fly with, then using your favorite search engine, type something like the following:
For Alaska airlines it would be: Alaska Airlines Flight Attendant Requirements, then you should be able to find the minimum requirements for that airline.
I would not spend money attending a general flight attendant academy.
You will be required to complete your chosen airline Flight Attendant School, (usually around 6 weeks), however they will provide you room and board for the duration of the class.
A second language would be a plus to getting hired.
Any type of interaction with other people is also a plus.

Aftab’s Answer

I have worked as flight deck crew member ( Flight Engineer ) and have logged more than 16,000 flying hours.

I am retired due to crossing the age limit but I will say that this is such an exciting career specially when you are young and free. But you have to be very much disciplined and eager to learn your duties by recall with good memory but once you are off duty you can do site seeing and experience exotic cuisine and culture.
But every thing comes at a cost. You will be flying on Christmas and weekends and holidays and nights, rain or sunshine.
But overall I still get excited when I look back at my career with no regrets
Best wishes
