Therefore, they are always on the lookout for the most important things in the world.
However, they still seem to be energetic and fresh-faced – so what's their secret?
Well now, the Emirates Cabin Crew has a glimpse of a glimpse on it as it takes a long haul flight as they share their insider tips and tricks on everything from what you need to get a decent night's sleep to try and beat jet lag.
We reveal some of our favorite hacks from the team …
1. Preparation is key!
- Thoughtfully packed hand-luggage will make your journey so much easier. Essentials include a nourishing hand cream, moisturizing lip balm and cozy pair of socks, which will be welcome to your long-haul flight.
- Take a spare set of comfortable clothes and change into them onboard ounce.
2. Have an in-flight beauty routine
- If you're flying medium to long-haul, then it's best to remove your make up before you fly. Make sure you moisturise and pack a facial spray to boost hydration throughout the flight.
A great blusher can transform your 'just out of bed' look in seconds and make you look healthy and well-rested. Opt for a cream blusher, which can double up a lip color – you do not need to pack a brush, just apply with your fingers.
The Emirates Cabin Crew often wears natural plant-based products to protect their skin and retain moisture during long-haul flights as well as complete coverage.

- STANDING: A walk through the cabin can help get your blood flowing, relax and help you swollen-ankles. Not to mention it will keep your cheeks rosy and looking fresh-faced. Emirates in-flight entertainment ice has a dedicated wellness channel which includes exercises you can easily do in your seat.
SLEEPING: Even if you're wide awake, it's worth trying to get some sleep so when you arrive you're not immediately hit by the jet lag. Set your watch to the new time zone to work out when it's worth getting some shut-eye. Emirates provide ambient lighting on board all the carriers, so the cabin is dimmed with stars on the roof in the evening and then a sunrise in the morning.
4. Do not forget your diet
- Drinking water is vital when you're flying, especially in the air.
- Stick to fruit juices rather than caffeinated drinks or alcohol: inflight hangovers are much worse than on land!
- Avoid foods that could trigger indigestion or a bloated feeling – but do not skip meals altogether.
