Crewing: The hardest job to get in aviation???

Hey Folks,

Having flown for many years now as crew, I'm looking to move away from flying. For months I have been trying to get a foot in the door in a Crewing Department, it's something i've been wanting to do for sometime, however nearly all airlines require a minimum of a years experience(some even ask for 5!), experience which is impossible to gain when every airline requires experience!

I'm finding it near enough an impossible task to even get a reply, let alone an interview or god forbid an actual job!

Any advice would be greatly appreciate

Angry

Many Airlines now require their Crewing Staff to have a degree (particularly in the Middle East) - Not to sure why - a degree in common sense is normally sufficient.

The crewing training package is very good, which creates the knowledge and experience required to be a team member. So yes itís a fact.
