Emirates consistently ranks among the top airlines in the world and is regarded as one of the most opulent.
Therefore, it is not surprising that the airline located in Dubai only hires a small portion of the roughly 144,000 applicants it receives for its cabin crew, which numbers only about 22,000 workers, each year. It takes a lot of work to land this highly sought-after job, which comes with free housing in Dubai and deeply cheap tickets.
It’s difficult to gain a job as a flight attendant at Emirates, but it’s much more difficult to work in first class.
From short-haul economy flights, Sɪɴɢᴀᴘᴏʀᴇan Siti Nurazlin worked her way up to first class. She claimed in an interview with Business Insider that it takes roughly two years in the workforce to advance to business, and an additional two years to work for first class. In another five years, she claims that those who are “extremely motivated” can advance to the position of flight purser or chief flight attendant.
The 31-year-old has been employed by Emirates since 2009, having met the requirements of being over 21, at least 5’2″, speaking English well, and possessing a high school diploma.
After being offered the position, she was flown to Dubai for an eight-week training program that Nurazlin described as “tough but entertaining,” covering everything from “delivering wonderful service to delivering babies if we have to.”
She also talked about a simulator that enables flight attendants to train what to do in various emergency situations, such as battling fires and dealing with hijackings. They may even practice opening jet doors and utilizing inflatable slides.
Nurazlin said that she wasn’t fully aware of the sᴄᴏᴘe of her obligations at the time she applied.
“There are more people in the air than just waiters and waitresses. We have received training in a variety of areas, including security and safety “She spoke. “If soᴍᴇᴛʜing goes wrong on board, whether it be a fire or soᴍᴇᴛʜing becoming ʟᴏsᴛ in the aircraft, we are the first to be called. The work is really demanding.”
According to Nurazlin, necklaces are not permitted, however, diamond or pearl stud earrings are. Although she advises “eyeliner and mascara is a must” as well as “Emirates crimson lipstick,” makeup must be kept natural. There are only two acceptable hairstyles: a French twist or a bun, she added, adding that nails can have a ɴᴜᴅᴇ, red, or French manicure.
Male flight attendants must be clean-shaven, use minimal hair products, and have no visible tattoos when in uniform, according to Nurazlin.
According to Nurazlin, flight attendants receive a day of training in Sᴋɪɴcare and makeup.
