cabin crew outfit

Make sure you have perfect photos for the cabin crew interview

When you fill in the cabin crew application you must attach two types of digital photographs of yourself:

  • One passport-type photograph
  • One full-length photograph

However, when you go to the job interview, you should also have these pictures printed and attached to your resume.

What size should the photographs be?

Usually, each company will specify this on their website, the moment they update the information about the recruiting session. However, most of the times, they require a passport-type photograph (i.e. 3.5 X 4.5 cm) and a full-length one (13 X 18 cm.).

Be sure when you upload these pictures in the on-line application they do not exceed the 500 kB limit and also, they are formatted in the .jpeg type.


  • smile authentically
  • your smile could be either closed or open mouth
  • do not raise your eyebrows
  • make sure your face and your sight are camera-oriented
  • make sure your hands and legs fit the picture
  • do not cross your legs
  • do not wear glasses or colored contact lenses

Tips for taking the photos:

  • the background should be one-color (usually white)
  • sufficiently illuminated pictures are preferred
  • the picture must be taken at your height level
  • the picture must be clear and at a high resolution
  • both photographs should be taken at the same time s o as not to be upsettingly different
  • the full-length photo must show your full body, including the shoes.

In these pictures you can see three former How to be cabin crew students, currently flight attendants at different airlines.


Dress code

The outfit you take your pictures in should match the one you will be wearing when going to the interview.


  • Deux-pieces black/blue/grey/brown/black green suit.
  • Shirt, preferably a white one or in a light colour (beige, ligt blue, light pink, not trasparent)
  • Knee-length skirt
  • Leg-colored stockings
  • Dark colored High heels, preferably matching the color of the suit
  • Engagement ring, wedding ring, pearl earrings or a small, transparent rock and a small watch
  • If your hair is short, comb it neatly; if your hair is shoulder-length or longer, you need to have a bun
  • Wear natural make-up, appropriate to your color complexion.


  • Blue, black or dark grey suit, only thin stripes are accepted.
  • Classic, collar, long sleeves shirt, preferably white
  • Simple tie, the color matching the suit
  • Belt, socks and shoes necessarily matching the suit color
  • Attentively polished shoes
  • Short, neat hair
  • The only accepted accessories – wedding ring/engagement ring and watch.

After applying for a job as cabin crew, the photographs you have taken will bear much importance in the recruiting process. They will be shown to the HR department of the company after the Assessment Day. Only after the application form is fully-completed and studied, will the final response be given. Make sure it proves you are the candidate they’ve been looking for!

      Hello Marga,
      My opinion is not to give up because there are some airlines which don’t take into consideration your hight. Try to search a little bit more and fight for your dream. We wish you good luck!

      Hello! Dreaming has no age and you are never too old to do what you truly love! You should take into account that if you wish to work for an airline company in the Middle East, then the chances of getting hired without any prior customer service or aviation experience is extremely low. The good thing is that many airline companies in Europe don’t have such a thing as “maximum age” and you can get your dream job even at 34. (Birtish Airways, RyanAir and so on) I wish you best of luck and may you see your dream come to life. Don’t lose hope!
      Kind regards,

    It was a great article which gave a better idea what Hotel Management is. It will be a great help if you and your team can elaborate more on specific courses and rank the institute for that particular course eg

    Hi there,

    Thank you very much for the detailed information. You have helped me quite a lot. It is very informative and very well structured, covering everything that one needs to know.

    May I ask one question regarding the line where it says – “Belt, socks and shoes necessarily matching the suit colour.”, my question is will it be a problem for me (a man) if I am wearing a navy blue suit with a belt, shoes and watch strap in the colour of brown with navy blue or brown socks? I simply like adding some colour and I don’t feel like a monochrome outfit would be best, personally for me, what is your opinion? I would be more than glad if you can answer my question. Also, If I am wearing navy blue should the tie 100% also be navy blue or it can be brown, matching the shoes, watch strap and belt?

    Thank you in advance for your time spent, you are awesome!
