Actress Kaley Cuoco Confirms: Flight Attendants Have A Difficult, Thankless Job

Actress Kaley Cuoco Confirms: Flight Attendants Have A Difficult, Thankless Job
Jennifer Billock

Kaley Cuoco of “The Big Bang Theory” fame is coming out with a new series called “The Flight Attendant” in which her character is a flight attendant. In order to prepare for the role, Cuoco did independent research on what life is like as a flight attendant to make sure she could act it exactly as needed.

Kaley Cuoco, known for her role as Penny in “The Big Bang Theory”, recently reaffirmed what most of us already knew about being a flight attendant—it’s a difficult, thankless job that requires a lot of patience. Cuoco studied the day-to-day of flight attendants in preparation for her new role in the upcoming show “The Flight Attendant”, where she plays (you guessed it!) a flight attendant.

“I don’t know how flight attendants do it—I would be internally annoyed the entire time,” Cuoco told Pure Wow. “They’ve got a lot of patience.”

She also learned about other aspects of the job. For instance, uniform trends: “I learned that their hair always has to be back,” she told Pure Wow. “And they immediately change—on a long flight—out of their heels and put on their comfy shoes.”

It’s also a very empathetic job, which Cuoco said is a big point of knowledge for her to use in the upcoming show.

“And you know some people have a fear of flying, and you’ve got to have some sort of empathy when you’re on a plane—so empathy is something I’m learning a lot about,” she told Pure Wow.

The new show is based on the novel of the same name by Chris Bohjalian.

    Ugh…little more than a media promotion by a network sitcom “actress,” which of course Flyertalk just had to print. Are FAs drafted or did they choose their profession? Do they earn a wage with union and company benefits or are they dependent on tips? Ah, so it is not a thankless profession….
