You get out what you put in
Being an FA is more of a lifestyle change than a career change. There really isn't anything else like it. You will absolutely work through holidays, be scheduled nighttime flying, and you will likely have to miss out on some of what you want to do in your personal life. In return, flying also gives you the freedom and opportunities to see so much more of the world, and have experiences that no other job will ever offer you. The hours are long, but you don't take the work home with you. I should mention that you also only work half of every month, and that's at full time hours. Once you start it's hard to stop, and for that I am thankful.
