"Oh you're a flight attendant, your job must be glamorous", is one of the most common things we hear from people nowadays. The fact that they are paid to fly plus the really stunning uniform they wear makes it seem all glamorous, but guess what, it may not be as glamorous at all.

It’s easy to say the life of a flight attendant is all about smiles and glam.Traveling may be our lifestyle, but I’d like to break it to you that not every expectation about this job is close to what you think. There may be happy fights, but we also go through bad ones as well. Behind the Red Lips is an open understanding of my readers to fully get to know the extent and other perspective among cabin crew/flight members. We may be the people you see who stay fierce but jolly in flight. But truth is, we do cope up with our feelings going through day-to day and having the added forget them during work. I would like to give importance of the ‘stress of flying’ a greater meaning.
