6. What important quality a cabin crew should have?

Being a cabin crew requires a person to have solid interpersonal skills. The person should be always cheerful and should not show their frustrations or anger to the people around them. This is the most important aspect of being in the cabin crew.

7. What would you do if the seat belt signs were on and the aircraft is about to take off, but a passenger insist that he has to kneel down to conduct his prayer due to religious reasons?

Well obviously this is a delicate situation. However first and foremost is Passenger safety.
I would deal with this situation by calmly speaking to the passenger and telling him we respect his choice to pray but he cannot do this during take-off because of the danger to himself and other passengers. I would politely ask him to take his seat.
Also if I were a junior Cabin Crew I would confer with a senior as there are many things involved.

8. How would you deal with this situation if there are 60 children on the flight, but you only have 40 toys?

There are a number of things I could do here.
► I'd check out each kit and if appropriate I'd beak it down into a coloring book for one child and a puzzle for another. I have done this before and it works out fine in most cases.
► I'll make sure the kit is age appropriate, some of the older kids may not want the entertainment items inside, so I'd make a call on the age limit when handing out the kit.

9. What you do if a commercially important passenger complained that another commercially important passenger is snoring too loudly behind him?

I would listen and sympathize with the passenger, but of course I cannot awaken the snorer (just yet anyway).
Offer earplugs and empathy will do a lot to elevate the situation. Maybe a drink will also help the passenger ignore the snoring. I can also suggest headphones piping in music.

10. What you do if you saw one of your colleagues being deliberately rude to a passenger?

► Firstly I would check with the Flight Attendant to make sure I heard and understood everything correctly. It would be terrible to falsely accuse someone. Maybe I had miss-heard.
► If the Cabin Crew seems to be genuinely at fault I would report it to a senior Flight Attendant. The reputation of the company and the enjoyment of the passengers is of course a very important concern.
► If I was the direct superior of the Flight Attendant, I would ask them the circumstances of the incident and take appropriate action. The crew would be given a verbal warning but the incident would be recorded in the crew briefing note.
► I would also approach the concerned passenger to find out if he was at all affected by his encounter with the crew and try to fix the situation.

11. Do you think some passengers take their frustrations out on cabin crew?

There are probably a number of reasons why Flight Attendants will face these frustrations.
► The passengers are in unfamiliar circumstances; they have probably had a hard time getting through ticketing, immigration and finding their way around the airport. Through the whole process you, as a Flight Attendant are probably the first person they have had to vent all this frustration on.
► Many passengers are uncomfortable or even afraid of flying; this frustration could be a sign of this fear. Almost certainly they are in unfamiliar circumstances.
► If the passenger has transmitted or gotten up early for the flight, they are probably tired and this tends to make people irritable.

training from the IT Company. In only 30 minutes they taught me all the
shortcuts and I managed to be efficient when operating it.
