Name: Meghan Riley
Airline: Gulf Air (Bahrain)
Why did you become a Flight Attendant?
I’ve always wanted to be a flight attendant since being a little girl, I went to college and studied Travel and Tourism & Cabin Crew. I have always loved traveling and meeting new people, it’s the perfect job for me!
The best thing about being a Flight Attendant and why?
Traveling to new destinations you wouldn’t even dream of going and meeting new people from all over the world / learning about new cultures.
Name 5 Favorite Travel Destinations.
LA, San Francisco, Vegas, Manila, Ibiza (Out of the ones I have traveled to so far I’ve only been flying for 2 months)
Things that you have accomplished being an FA:
Definitely being more independent and confident in myself, leaving family and friends back at home at 21 years old wasn’t as easy as I thought, but it’s amazing being able to catch a flight to see them or them visit me whenever they like.
What are the lessons you learned being a Flight Attendant?
How different over cultures are compared to mine ( I’m English) and it’s amazing to see how other people live across the world.
Tell us your story on how you started as a Flight Attendant.
As I mentioned I studied at college then gained some customer service background in my previous jobs. I have always wanted to work in the Middle East for my first airline and I knew you had to be 21 years old to apply, soon as I have seen the opportunity to apply once I was 21 I did exactly that and here I am!
