Everything is not exactly like what it seems. There is nothing in the world which has only advantages and no disadvantages. A balance between the two is what makes a task worthy of performing. Only advantages will make you bored of the job and only disadvantages will make you frustrated. A task with both advantages and disadvantages will prevent you from being bored and frustrated as well. Thus the job is made interesting as well as engaging. Similar is the case with the job of an air hostess.

 It comes with many advantages and disadvantages as well. But the problem arises when we do not carefully study both advantages and disadvantages of the job. We get pampered by what all we are going to get. As an air hostess, you get an opportunity to travel the whole world, meeting new people and also a high-pay. But we do not calculate what all we need to give in order to get all these things. You would have to work at odd hours, be patient even when you are at peak of your stress level. There is a lot of physical as well as emotional stress involved in the job of an air hostess.

Before talking in detail about the advantages and disadvantages of being an air hostess, you should know about who is an air hostess? An air hostess is a part of cabin crew serving towards the safety of passengers while in the flight.
