Joshua K aced his interviews with Northwest, United and Continental. "With your stuff it's a piece of cake," he said each time, "let me sell the stuff for you." And he did.
Jeanne E was thrilled when she saw us come to her graduation from Omni Air in Las Vegas. "You not only got me in, but you kept your word about coming for my graduation as well," she said. She loved her first Europesn layover in Germany.
"I am so happy that I found you on the 'net," said Nur Baz from Singapore. "Your stuff is incredible."
"Tom is super," said Jeremy I from Texas. "He guides you through anything that happens to you before, during and after training. To me, he is the father I have never had."
"Tom's books gave me the direction for my interviews, but Tom was the one who instilled in me the confidence I was lacking," said Al Fleming who has been with Republic Airlines for a decade now.
Reina from Singapore is preparing for either Singapore Airlines or the Emirates. "After I got Midnight Flight's materials, I realized what I have been doing wrong until now," she wrote us.
Now, when aviation slowed down, it is a good time to stop and think: do you really want to be a flight attendant and deal with all of the "ups & downs?"
If you still want it, then start preparing for it now.
Jermaine Pearson has made it with United Airlines in 2006
Juan Ramos started
his United Airlines training two weeks after Jermaine.
Kimberly Koval was Jermaine Pearson's classmate a week before she finished our Flight Attendant Course and is now with United Airlines. Her story appeared in our April 2006 Update.
Nur Bazilah from Singapore persevered and aced her Silk Air interview.
The 5th edition of our bestseller
FLIGHT ATTENDANT CAREER was published at the end of 2019.
"295 REAL FLIGHT ATTENDANT INTERVIEW QUESTIONS WITH ANSWERS THAT WORK" was published this Spring.
In more than 300 pages, both books will give you a detailed information on most airlines - worldwide and in the U.S. - step-by-step descriptions on how they conduct their interviews, and then all the questions you may face with the right answers.
You can't get a more thorough preparation anywhere - except perhaps again from us with our DVDs complimenting the books.

We have faced tough situations in aviation in the past. Every time airlines dug out from the hole, mostly thanks to government's help. It always came at a price - we had fewer major airlines because of the mergers or bankruptcies, and getting in has become a lot tougher.
The same trend took place with regional airlines, as more and more of them will slip into bankruptcy, and eventually into history. That applies not just in the U.S., but globally.
Reduction of aircraft and routes leads to reduction of personnel - either through voluntary means or through furloughs. Most senior employees often opt for early retirement and then look for jobs elsewhere. That's how it has been in the past, and the future will not be any different.
It is a pity that the number of airlines keeps shrinking, because inevitably it always means two things: quality of service goes down, and fares go up. Either it will show in the price of tickets outright, or it will be hidden in additional fees (in small print, of course).
Biggest airlines will survive because of governments' subsidies, loans or loan/investment options. That is a newer approach this year, which did not exist in the U.S. in the past. U.S. government essentially bailed out airlines with taxpayers' money in the past.
And so airlines will weather the slump, and will come back, albeit not as fast as in the past. They will dust off the planes parked in the desert, blow sand out of hem, and will see what else they can charge the passengers to get back in the red. Interestingly, despite to the statements of airline executives in this country, no airline was ready to survive longer than 2 months without any intervention.
When the new growth will start, new hires will save airlines a lot of money, and most of them will be a lot more enthusiastic about their work then their senior counterparts. Unfortunately, they won't have the know-how of impeccable service, and they will have not the older folks to learn from.
U.S. airlines, which were hoping to benefit from the Open Skies treaties this country had signed with several continents - namely Europe, Asia and Africa - will have to wait for any benefits for a while, while the political situation in the world settles down a little, and airlines will be able to open new markets around the globe.
When it comes to hiring new personnel, airlines will most likely start where they left off.
Wasteful and non-productive Open Houses have given way to initial sorting out of applicants via Internet and on the phone to separate the viable candidates from people who are not cut out for it or do not meet the requirements, and pretty well only the better candidates fly to the main hub for an "open house by invitation." A lot has changed in the hiring process, and new questions are popping out. We have kept up with the changes, as we constantly update our materials.
Background checks will be more thorough than ever, and with the number of applicants (Delta estimated last year it had about 80,000 applicants for less than 1,000 positions - and that's when things were great), the airlines can afford to be picky and get just "the best of the best" with "clean" records.
WE HAVE DETAILED DESCRIPTIOPNS OF MOST INTERVIEWS, ALONG WITH ALL QUESTIONS AND BEST ANSWERS TO THEM - WHEN THEY RESUME AGAIN
Some airlines have returned to "cognitive testing" before the virus put a stop to any hiring.
If you have any self-doubts, this little booklet might help you brush up on the High School skills you may have forgotten.
We still have a few books left, and if there is enough interest, we'll reprint it.
