What are the requirements for flight attendants (age, weight, training, how far you can live from home base, pay rates, etc.). I have been in Administration and Management for a very long time and am looking for a career change. I would like to move to New Orleans, but have family in New Mexico and since I love to travel would love to relocate but also be able to afford seeing my kids and grandkids throughout the year.

I was reading this conversation and thought I would chime in. I'm a soon-to-be-retired teacher and would love to be a flight attendant after I retire (I'm tetiring early). Would you please send me the qualifications as well?
