“Were Bids/Rosters/Schedules Released?”

  • Crew life is compartmentalized (generally) into thirty day increments.  Before, during, and after schedules are released, bids not only are the highlight, but usually the only light of conversation.  (Seriously, if I wasn’t crew, I would think y’all are just the strangest group of people:).

“Why can’t I sleep?”

  • I’m tired. I just want rest.  It’s 3am, and my body forgot to catch up to where I am now.

“What’s the wifi password?”

  • or maybe this is just a blogger’s problem.

About the Author

Hello, I’m K. J. Watts, but my friends call me Kara. I fell into the sky and have worked as International cabin crew, on private jets as a corporate flight attendant, and earned an FAA Private Pilot Certificate. Over a decade ago, I started this blog, which developed into a love for writing and a debut memoir based on Flight Attendant Life. A California native, I now live in Sydney, Australia, where I enjoy spending time with my husband, writing, and surfing.
