Instagramer of the month in June

Read in: Deutsch

Dear flyswiss followers,

My name is Michael, and I’m your Instagramer of the month for June.

I’ve been a Flight Attendant with SWISS for pretty much a year now. I grew up in Western Austria, right on the border with Switzerland. Before I joined SWISS, I spent several years working as a concierge in Southern Germany, and then I went to Eastern Switzerland to study business administration. Then I wanted to increase the radius around my home town a little, and I found the perfect opportunity for this with SWISS.

What I appreciate most about my job are my colleagues, who are always combined in a really exciting mix for each trip. No two crews are the same, which means that every single trip has the potential to be absolutely unforgettable. The same applies to our passengers – no two flights are the same, which means that even colleagues who have been in the job for years are constantly enjoying new experiences. Of course, I thoroughly enjoy staying at the most diverse places all over the world. As a Flight Attendant, you can easily find yourself at a concert in Williamsburg on one Saturday, and going for a stroll around Lantau Island on the next.

In my spare time, I continue to attend a few lectures at university, and I also like getting out on my bike. And when I can, I like to take the opportunity to fly as a passenger for a change and visit one of the lovely cities in our route network, perhaps to visit friends in Hamburg, enjoy some arancini in Palermo or to head for Copenhagen for a Mikkeller.

And now would you please place your hand baggage under the seat in front, if at all possible, so we can set off on our Instagram trip.

Yours, Michael
