A flight attendant shares how much money they make and TikTok can’t get over it

Ever wonder how much a flight attendant earns?

A flight attendant on TikTok has poured all tea on how much money she makes from the job that allows her to fly around the world, and people can’t seem to agree on whether the pay is worth the money.

Daniela is a full-time flight attendant for Emirates, but also runs a TikTok account where she records details about her work. In one of her videos, she answers one of the most-asked questions: “How much money do you make as a flight attendant?”

The video, which now has 2.1 million views, breaks down three different ways flight attendants are paid.

“A flight attendant’s salary is made up of three parts,” she shares in the video.

  1. base salary
  2. flight duration
  3. stay fee

In the video, Daniella shares a screenshot of the Emirates website page, which breaks down the approximate figures for base pay and flight hours for flight attendants working in economy class.

Base salary is how much you earn each month, no matter how many hours you work.

According to the website, an economy class cabin crew earns AED 4,260 a month, or about US$1,160 (C$1,580).

While that doesn’t sound like a lot, it’s not the only money they make.

In addition to base salary, flight attendants also earn income based on hours flown.

Daniela explained that flight time “is calculated based on the amount [they’re] up in the air. ”

“We do not get paid for any delays passengers may face on boarding or disembarking or on the ground. This should be included in our base salary,” Daniela shared in the video.

According to the website, flight wages are AED 61.25 (US$ 16.68/CAD 22.71) per hour, and on average, with flying hours plus base salary, a flight attendant earns an estimated AED 9,770 per month, or approx. $2,660 (CAD 3,621).

The third and final element of monetary compensation that flight attendants receive is the cost of stopovers.

“All stay costs are covered by the company, including hotel accommodation,” Daniela added. “Depending on the destination, we also receive additional money in our salary to cover our stopovers.”

She also confirmed that with each promotion, their salaries also increase, so business class flight attendants earn more than economy class.

The position also has other perks and fringe benefits that make the job even more rewarding.

“The company also provides accommodation and transportation to and from the airport while living in Dubai,” she explained.

This means that flight attendants can pocket all their wages instead of wasting them on monthly rent.

It also helps that the UAE is tax-free, so they pocket pretty much all the money they make.

While the idea of ​​living for free sounds amazing, many people in the comment section still can’t put down the money a flight attendant makes every month.

One user asked: “Only $2,000? A month wow, how sad.”

Another user wrote: “£2040. Too bad. It’s not enough.”

“Really imagine it more,” another user wrote.

Daniela decided to clarify everyone’s concerns and shared in the comments section that she did a lot more than the website outlined.

“For those who ask, I work in business and fly about 100 hours a month; my average salary is over $4,000 a month,” Daniela wrote.

“Accommodation, bills and transportation to the airport are all provided by the company. The job also comes with a lot of perks and free access to the gym, plus discounts to many places around Dubai. + Free flights for a year and discounts on flights,” she added.

Others in the comments were impressed by what the flight attendants did.

“Given that most people pay around 40% of their salary as rent, you need to take into account that this position does not pay rent, and living in Dubai = tax free,” commented one user.

Another asked: “I’m the only one who thinks £2040 is great lol.”

Another wrote: “$40 an hour and basically a free flight to anywhere in the world is pretty good.”

With all the information Daniela has provided, will you work for the airline after knowing what they earn?
