    Hi, Mia! I have been contemplating on going back to flying and then I read your article. I flew for 7 years and quit in 2011 to pursue what I thought was the career I really wanted. Needless to say, that career didn’t work for me and now all I can think of is be a flight attendant again after 5 years. And believe me when I say it’s just really all I can think of right now. But the thing is I have just gotten married 2 months ago and my concern is that, say I get hired, there’s no guarantee I will be based where my husband and I live. I dread the idea of moving to another city without him since he’s also just started his new job. But I feel like the sky is calling me once again and I do feel so strongly about it. Your article has inspired me to move forward but I just can’t help feeling like I’m an awful wife in case this push through. ?

    What great maternity leave benefits! I have imagined myself as a flight attendant many a time. Nice article – sometimes you have to go full circle in order to know where you truly belong. 🙂

    12-15 days a month!? You’ve actually got me tempted, it sounds like the perfect job for a traveller. The flight deals sound great as well, it’s awesome that you have a job that allows you blogging time because I love your blog! 😀

    I loved reading about your return to the skies Mia. I always wanted to be an FA when I was younger! The perks sound even better than I expected. First Class for $67 and free travel in the U.S. sounds incredible. Happy travels!

    I’ve always thought this would be a great profession but my fear of flying is a huge barrier. Do you ever have fears while flying or scary situations while in the air?

    I was so ready to become a flight attendant in my early 20s. However, I found that I’d have to move to a bigger city (hub for airlines preferably) and I just wasn’t ready for that at the time. I’m sure it would have fueled my fire even more to travel but ultimately am glad that I took a different path

    Sounds like being a flight attendant is an ideal job for someone who likes the freedom and flexibility to travel. If you’ve noticed, in the recent past, a lot of focus is on how difficult the job is and how annoying it can get on a daily basis, but thank you for highlighting the obvious perks that the job brings.
