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?

Thank you!

Thank you so much for posting this question. I've been curious about the same thing for quite some time. I'm currently in the process of relocating to the Denver area and have been dreaming about getting a job with Southwest.
