So many men so many professions which are integral to the whole global process functioning normally. If the tendency of employment is disbalanced the chaos will befall. One job or profession compensates, coincides or overlaps with another one. There is a close link in a common sphere between the professions. In our case, we consider a peculiarity of air-profession as a flight attendant in a system of employment. As it is known the career as an airline stewardess- more commonly called a flight attendant – includes serving and satisfying passengers, it also entails ensuring the safety of passengers and crew members [2]. Flight attendants receive extensive emergency training, because in the case of an emergency, they may have to lead the evacuation. The main duty of a flight attendant is maintaining a safe and secure flight while keeping passengers at ease. Before takeoff, flight attendants ensure the plane is laden with emergency gear, first-aid kits and enough food and drink for all the passengers. They also greet passengers, take tickets, ensure seat belts are fastened and drill passengers in emergency procedures. If an emergency does occur, flight attendants may direct the evacuation and provide first-aid to the injured. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, flight attendants typically spend 75–90 hours each month in the air and 50 hours each month getting the plane ready and writing flight reports on the ground. Since airlines operate at all hours of the day, flight attendants may work nights, weekends and holidays. They often spend time at destination locations, in which case airlines pay for hotel stays and meals [1].
