The image of a flight attendant is not complete without the trolley bag we carry along with us. Besides our trolley bag we also have a suitcase. In my suitcase I keep my clothing, liquids and everything I buy on a layover. So what do keep I keep in my trolley bag?
Let me show you what I keep in mine.
These items are mandatory to bring them in your trolley on every flight:
– High visibility jacket
– An apron
– Mandatory flight safety papers
Board shoes – my board shoes have a small heel. I am only 1.65cm. Usually most flight attendants I know where flat shoes on board. I like to be a bit taller. So mine have a 3cm heel.
Extra pair of tights – you’ll be going through tights like crazy as a flight attendant. Always have a spare one in your trolley. You’ll never know when you spot a ladder!
Make up bag and layover bag – if for some reason my suitcase is not there, which happened to me once. I always have some essentials in my trolley. My make up bag to do my make up in the morning. Can’t have a flight attendant without any make up 😉 My layover bag contains an extra pair of underwear, deodorant, my toothbrush, toothpaste and a comb.
– Lots of lipsticks, lipglosses and chapsticks.
– Pain killers, nose spray, multi vitamines, smints, tissues etc.
These are just some extra stuff, nice to have them with you. Sometimes I might get a bit hungry when I’m in my room. It’s always nice to have some crackers, some fruit or soup with you. I also keep my lipsticks and lip glosses in my on ‘board bag’. When I have a very early pick up I apply my lipstick when I’m on board. It is also very handy to have them nearby to re-apply.
And last but not least:
– Iphone charger
– Ear plugs

*Update 13 Januari 2015 – This is my trolley bag! At first I couldn’t decide if I wanted a simple cheap trolley or a more expensive one like a Samsonite. I finally bought this one thinking that I could always purchase a Samsonite eventually. I am really happy with this purchase. I especially like to black and blue color of this trolley which matches with my uniform 🙂 I got this from Kijkshop for 30 euro’s.
