I was not paid for this video. eBags was kind enough to send the bag to me for free, however ALL opinions are 100% my own! I will never promote a product/service I don’t truly love!

Which airline do you work for?
I’m not allowed to say.

How old do you have to be to be a flight attendant?
Most major US carriers are 20-21 years or older. Some smaller airlines are 19 years or older.

What’s your schedule?
It varies. A LOT. I don’t have a consistent schedule.

What is OPR?
It stands for “On Premise Reserve.” When I have OPR, I’m scheduled to sit at the airport for four hours (there are five shifts throughout the day). OPRs are used if a flight attendant/crew needs to be replaced at the last minute (within two hours of a flight’s departure). Flight attendants from OPR are also used to start boarding a flight if a flight attendant/crew is running late but will make it before departure. This prevents the flight from being delayed.

What is a deadhead?
The company flies the flight attendant/crew from one destination to another, but they are not working the flight (i.e. they’re passengers but still on duty for the company).

Do you have to pay for the hotel rooms? Do you have to share them?
No and no.

Do you get expense money for layovers?
We do not receive cash in hand when we start a layover. We do, however, receive a minimal hourly per diem (which we do not receive until our next paycheck).

How long are your layovers?
Again, it varies. Could be as little as 6 hours or as long as 42 hours.

Are there height/weight requirements to be a flight attendant?
You must be able to fit in a jumpseat, escape through an exit window, retrieve items from overhead compartments…you know, perform the basic duties of a flight attendant.

Do you need a degree or any prior experience?
High school degree is required; a college degree is recommended. Prior airline experience is not required. Airlines look for candidates with prior experience working with people (retail, customer service, banking, nursing, etc). I have a bachelor’s degree in tourism and travel; my prior work experience includes the Disney College Program (Google it if you are unfamiliar with it), multiple retail jobs, and multiple restaurant jobs.

How long until you fly transatlantic/hold a line/etc?
This varies greatly depending on your airline and where you are based within that airline. It’s all about seniority.

As a reserve, do you get paid even if you don’t fly?
Yes. We are guaranteed 75 hours of flight time pay each month. If we fly less, we still get 75. If we fly more, we get paid for anything extra. Those 75 hours do not include having to get to the airport at least an hour early, boarding, or deplaning; our hourly pay is counted from when the aircraft door closes to when it opens.

Thank you for watching! My name is Jenny Ernst (if you haven’t gathered that by now). I’m a flight attendant living in Charlotte, North Carolina. I post a new vlog every week + occasionally sit down to give y’all a proper video!

  1. What types of food does TSA allow through checkpoint? I didn’t know they allowed any.

  4. How do you get through security with cutlery and ice packs?

  5. Lol, I love your personality. That was an awesome review. I ordered mine before I found your review so at least now after watching your review I know I made a great choice. Great job and thanks for your passion about the product. That sold it for me. Very professional

  6. Hello Jenny your video are looking so great as always its just incredible and love it a lot im looking forward to see your other videos

  7. Do you eat your prepped meals cold on the airplane?

  8. Do you bring dishwashing soap to wash your tupperware and silverware in the hotel or bathroom sink, or do you just wash them thoroughly when you get back home from a trip.

  9. It's sooo hard for me to eat healthy while on vacation or away from home so this is helpful thank you!

  10. Thank you for this! I'm also a flight attendant and upload vlogs too! Safe skies always <3


  11. I enjoy watching about kind of packing so much. Such a great idea with the bag that can take it out to clean it up.

  12. would love to see hotel room tours !

  13. ahh i live in slc wish i could have even meant u hun love your videos

  14. Can you get silverware through TSA?

  15. Holy Crap, How clean is that airplanes air conditioning your eyes are 100% blood shot..

  16. I am beginning to believe that Jenny Ernst is starting to be the most Famous Flight Attendant on YouTube! I love all her videos!

  17. That is a great lunch case. You really can fit a lot into it. I totally am for bringing your own food with you. So much healthier.

  18. You did an excellent job on this video. Well done 👍🏼. Stay fabulous. Hugs 🤗 and Have a great and productive weekend.

  19. The eBag Crew Cooler was the first, and only, lunch bag I've used, and it is fantastic!  Those flight attendants who do not have one want one when they see mine and how much I am able to bring.Another great feature of this bag is the thick strap on the back so that you can attach it to the handle of a roller board.  The Travel Pro Crew Cooler has a thin one which causes the cooler to fall over the side of the roller board if not completely straight.  The eBag's strap keeps it snugly on top, which was one of the main reasons I chose the eBag.Another well done video, Jenny!

  20. That bag looks amazing! What is a dead head?

  21. I never do this, because I loathe being THAT GUY in the comments, but mama taught me right when she said honesty is the best policy, so here goes. You, Jenny, rocked that Rolling Stones shirt; and that's coming from someone who doesn't even like rock and roll.

  22. Could you tell something about your college degree? I'm going to do tourism management next year and I'm really curious!
