As an airline recruiter/interviewer for a major airline I have seen and heard about "The Essential Guide To Becoming A Flight Attendant" for for some time now. I checked it out personally recently and it is right on target. Anyone who reads and follows the information in this guide should have no problem being hired as an airline flight attendant. The questions Ms. Ward reveals in the guide are the exact ones I ask each day while interviewing flight attendant applicants and the tips on interview etiquette are right on. I wish all applicants were as prepared as those who have read this incredible book must be. Kudos for a professional job by a flight attendant professional!

Ms. Ward goes into colorful detail and unveils the mysteries and myths of the position of the professional flight attendant. To the general public and novice individuals, a flight attendant position seems to be the "golden job"; in many ways it is. However, many do not realize the rigor of getting the position in the first place, what training is really all about, and the lifestyle you can expect once you become qualified to fly. The Essential Guide To Becoming A Flight Attendant is truly a must have for anyone who is curious or intends to pursue this as a career field. As a current flight attendant for a regional carrier, I thought that I had the experience from previous successful interviews with my current employer. However, this book caught my eye, and I am happy to have ordered it. It gave specific details that really helped my presentation in my second interview. Since the interview process for flight attendants is so different from every other job in the current job market, how you present yourself is very crucial. With this book, you can confidently walk in to any open house or one on one interview with a feeling of being very well prepared.....because you will be! I am happy to disclose that I have accepted a position with American Airlines, and have seen other successful testimonials as a result of the book's help as well. I also found Kiki Ward to be extremely supportive personally. She truly is interested in her book's impact on her clientele's success. You won't find that with many other authours!

As someone who is just starting the rather grueling process of trying to become a flight attendant, I can attest to the accuracy and helpfulness of Ms. Ward's manual. Her wealth of experience comes shining through, page after page. After attending two interviews for major airlines, I found that all of what I had learned from The Essential Guide to Becoming a Flight Attendant was, indeed, essential! It helped me immeasurably - in fact, I was invited to a second interview with both carriers! Anyone serious about becoming a flight attendant in today's competitive market will appreciate Ms. Ward's insights--especially her sample (and very accurate) interview questions and tips on what to expect and how to plan for your interview. Ms. Ward is also available for follow-up advice by e-mail and she has been unfailingly helpful throughout my own interview process. I highly recommend the manual to anyone else in my position.

I ordered this book just two weeks before my interview. The book arrived in two days and I read it. I read it again, and again. I studied the questions, practiced my answers, dressed how I was supposed to dress, walked how I was supposed to walk. This book worked, and I was offered a job as a flight attendant with a major airline on the spot. I start training next month and cannot wait. This book is what you need to have the upper edge over the other applicants- I was skeptical- but after being hired to the most sought after position in the aviation industry- I am a believer.

Ms. Ward totally prepared me for the process! I was excepted to training with American Airlines. The "Guide" is a must for anyone seeking a career as a flight attendant. Ms. Ward has taken the time to explain every detail from the initial application to relocating to a new base. The "Guide" is concise and easy to read. Kiki is a professional through and through and I couldn't have been as successful without her help. I was honored when she accepted the invitation to pin my wings at my graduation ceremonies. Her love of aviation and her dedication in seeing her clients succeed truly makes her Someone Special in the Air.

I gave the guide to myself for Christmas last year and set my mind to being hired at an airline in 2002. I am so glad I bought the guide and educated myself before I ever applied. I was so prepared at my interview session and it was obvious that others were not. There was a not a question asked that wasn't in this book. The funniest thing is that my interviewer caught a glimpse of the book in my bag and recognized it right away. She praised me for preparing for the interview and guess what.... I start flight attendant training next month! This guide was exactly what I needed to completely inform myself about the flight attendant life, totally prepare for my interviews and finally get the job of my dreams!

I purchased this book earlier this year,before an interview. This book was dead on, I knew what to expect. I didn't get a second interview, but was able to eventually get a flight attendant position a few months later. Kiki was really nice, and answers your emails. I was bummed after my first interview, but Kiki reminded me that she didn't get hired on her first try. Every tid bit and advice from questions,preperation, what to expect at training and on the job was very helpful. Don't waste your $$ on other books or "we can train you to be a flight attendant" schools or websites. You can only be trained by the airline you will be working for!! I recommended this book to other friends who are interested in being a f/a and to anyone interested in this awesome career!
