Aya exists to provide flight attendants with in-flight assistance to create better relationships
Seeking opportunity in the commercial air travel market
Over the years, many of the caricatures and misperceptions of a “stewardess” have stood the test of time and continue to exist today. Since 9/11, there has been a growing tension in commercial travel to further define the roles of a flight attendant. Our team was fascinated by modern flight attendants’ many responsibilities and the myriads of roles they play in the 21st century: security, doctor, babysitter, janitor, food-server, psychiatrist, and so much more!
We tasked ourselves how might we uncover the primary meaningful experiences flight attendants seek throughout an entire career lifecycle from flight attendant school, reserves, to seniority.
