“In Life, It’s Not Where You Go, It’s Who You Travel With” – Charles Schulz
Call it relationship goals. Travelling the world together, working together, and going home together. Others may see it as hard, but in reality, a relationship between two cabin crew members is a beautiful thing.
Working together makes you grow as a couple. You get to know each other more as individuals and colleagues. You support each other and help each other grow in your career because you work like a tag-team. What more when you travel together that makes your bond even stronger. Travelling together is just one thing why a cabin crew relationship or for some, an inter-airline relationship, makes a strong foundation. There are more reasons to those why these cabin crew relationships have turned out to be the relationship goals of others.
It's easier to understand each other. - She gets home, she goes to sleep, and then he gets mad because all she did was to serve coffee and water, but why is she that tired and she doesn't have time. This scenario doesn't happen in a cabin crew relationship because both knows the rigours and stress of each flight, regardless if it's just about serving pork, beef, water, or tea. Both working in the aviation industry, more, both a cabin crew, have made things easier for the relationship. When one comes home exhausted, the other understands. When the other had a bad flying day, the former knows how to ease the burden. When schedules get tight and when they have less time for each other, they know why.
It's also easier to trust each other. - You see each other often, and the aviation industry is small enough for one to not to get caught if he or she decides to cheat. That's one reason why cabin crew couples can trust each other with full confidence. It's too risky to cheat, or to be someone's third party, unless, one is willing to risk it.
Cabin crew couples are paid to travel the world. - Airfare is usually the most expensive thing when travelling but for cabin crew couples, what airfare? They are even paid to travel the world. All they have to think about is to bid that they get a flight together or the pray that they are rostered together.
The relationship of a cabin crew starts when they work and travel together. - They just start as work mates rostered together with the rest, but as they travel, they usually find comfort in each other, even if it's the first time that they fly together. They know that there is already something between them, those "feelings" that they first hide. Then when they get back, they tend to miss each other and everything else is history. So just imagine a foundation built on travelling.
For cabin crew couples from different airlines, the most exciting part is bumping into each other at another place in uniforms. - Yes this sends so much excitement to most cabin crew couples wherein they are from two different airlines. If their individual airlines fly to a common country, they try to bid or exchange slots in order for them to be rostered at almost the same schedule. For some though, something even more exciting is seeing him or her, in uniform, at either the airport or just somewhere in another country on a layover. Well definitely since they are a couple, they already know each other's schedule.
Working together really helps you each to get to know each other more and more. - You work as a team inside the aircraft, setting aside relationships and working at a professional level. We know a cabin crew couple wherein the lead crew is the boyfriend and one of his flight attendants is his girlfriend. Well, the steward's girlfriend omitted some errors wherein the steward had to call his girlfriend's attention, not as his girlfriend, but as a colleague under his watch. But when they both got off the aircraft and signed off from duty at their destination, the steward apologized for calling her attention as he was just doing his job as the lead crew of that flight. Instead of taking it badly, his flight attendant girlfriend took it professionally wherein the more she was impressed with her boyfriend's professionalism. They ended up discussing things wherein her steward boyfriend just adviced her what to do, off the record. Yes, those situations do help cabin crew couples get to know each other even better.
Even if they are from different airlines, cabin crew couples share experiences at their respective airlines and they too advice each other. - Flying is more than just a calling and lifestyle. It is a career, and for a cabin crew couple who both understands the rigours of the job and what it takes to be an effective cabin crew, they advice each other professionally. Not only do they grow their love for one another, they help each other grow in their careers.
The most beautiful thing in a cabin crew relationship above all that their job actually strengthens their foundation as a couple because they get to travel together, understand each other, and to know each other further for who they are. Travelling and working together pushes you to learn new things, learn to compromise, and to learn to have patience with each other. You enjoy each other's company seeing new places everyday, discovering new cuisines, and trying new adventures in almost all parts of the world. As they say, the more you travel, the more you get to know each other and yourselves more.
Another beautiful thing? It is easier for a cabin crew couple understand each other and you build trust That's one thing why many cabin crew or pilot-cabin crew relationships do flourish.
So how many of you are looking forward to a cabin crew relationship as part of your #relationshipgoals?
