Boston, Massachusetts, has its place in American history and continues to be an important location for both leisure and business travel. While researching Boston, we interviewed Cynthia Page, a corporate flight attendant with over 15 years of experience.
Cynthia has received corporate flight attendant training from FlightSafety International and Aircare FACTS Training and completed her last recurrent in July of 2013. She has flown on a variety of aircraft, including Globals, Gulfstreams, and Falcons. Aside from being an accomplished cabin crew member, she is also a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)-Licensed Dispatcher and has a graduate certificate in business from Harvard Extension School.
Discussing Boston, Cynthia shared that she enjoys dining on “local fare, but can never go wrong with Italian.” Her favorite local meal is “fresh fish on Cape Cod.” For anyone visiting Boston, she suggests heading to the “North End, since it has a multitude of great Italian restaurants.” One of her top things to do in Boston is “going to Fenway Park on a warm summer night.” Sounds like a great idea for any baseball fan headed to the area.
Shifting to private aviation topics, Cynthia explained that “resourcefulness and ability to adapt to any situation” are keys to being a successful flight attendant since “each flight is different.” She also says that service training is of utmost importance for anyone looking to start a career as a corporate flight attendant. Food is an important part of the in-flight experience, and Cynthia shared that one challenge she has faced is “portion size. In the United States you need to under-order; in Europe you need to over-order.” This information is sure to be helpful to anyone traveling to a new region of the world for the first time. When asked what her favorite locations are, Cynthia responded, “Any place that I have not been to yet; I’m always looking to learn about a new culture.”
Cynthia is an active member of the business aviation community and attends the NBAA Schedulers and Dispatchers Conference and NBAA International Operators Conference. The next time you are in need of a multi-talented flight attendant, contact Cynthia Page at firstname.lastname@example.org.
