“BRITISH AIRWAYS – Best Cabin Crew in the United Kingdom”
– Skytrax World Airline Awards 2018
Wow! What an accolade!
The Skytrax Awards are like the Oscars for the aviation industry, so you can imagine how excited we all were to hear this information yesterday. It just goes to show that hard work pays off. We also rose 9 places in the overall Global ranking which is amazing and we now sit just 2 places under Virgin Atlantic. Over 20 million people took part in the 2017/18 survey.. that’s incredible, you really do not realise how what you’re doing effects people until it’s brought to your attention like this.
When we go through training, it’s rigorous.. it’s specific.. it’s somewhat picky.. and there’s a reason for that. British Airways is a brand – passengers have high expectations when they board our aircraft because we have a reputation to uphold, we are the flagship airline for our country & we must serve accordingly.
I am so excited to be one of the 6000 cabin crew that made this award possible, to be one of the 6000 cabin crew that get to share this award for everything we do daily to make sure our passengers have the best experience possible in a metal tube 39,000ft in the air Haha.
Weirdly, winning this award has also made us feel like we want to work even harder now to prove why we are the best cabin crew in the UK, I know I definitely will be.
We are #1.
We are proud.
We are British Airways.
To Fly. To Serve.
