Once you start this role, all cabin crew and the purser and/or chief purser would report to you and this will help you to see the other crew?s performance. Another thing you have to do is involving in training and supervising new recruits and would have to ensure all relevant paperwork was completed at the end of the flight. Additionally some air cabin crew may also wish to move on to become VIP cabin crew. But this type of work is carried out with very important private clients usually on private aircraft. The clients are typically prestigious and may include government officials or royal families.
