1. It’s impossible to make everyone happy.
One person will be too hot. One will be too cold. Cabin temperature and food preferences are variables, not constants. Not everyone in a group will be in a good mood, so just do your best and let the negative go.
2. Distance can be nothing…and everything.
Flight attendants create friendships all over the world. Distance sometimes makes no difference regarding love. At other times, it quickly erodes a personal connection. I can travel far away on a whim, which offers the opportunity to create unexpected relationships, and yet the ability to be in many places for a short amount of time has diminished the power to maintain these relationships as the years go by.
