Flight Attendant School on Travel Channel

If I told you that there was a new show on cable called Flight Attendant School, you would probably think that it’s a new series on Cinemax After Dark.  At least I hoped it was.  Alas, it is not.

The Travel Channel is launching a new reality show called Flight Attendant School beginning this Thursday.  The program will follow a class of flight attendant hopefuls for Frontier Airlines as they try to pass through their training course. 


  1. I just watched this show last night and taped it. Of course I want to become a flight attendant, so I guess I’m biased.

  2. please tell me what happend to Pam. why did she die the first episode? I was very upset to see that the show was dedicated to her memory.

  3. I had the pleasure of meeting Pam Gardner on 3 different occassions. She was a very professional, fun-loving woman. Although I was not selected for the Flight school at those times, Ms. Gardner kept encouraging me to reapply. Very few people got invited the first time. She was a very graceful and delightful woman. I never saw her when she didn’t have a smile on her face. She will be missed by everyone noat only at Frontier but by those who has the great opportunity to meet, talk or even love her. Is it possible for you to post a recent picture of her on your website or even here. I can’t for the life of me remember what she looked like. I remember she was very pretty and so well polite to all of us.

  4. Denver papers say she died of a blood clot last week

  5. I was a Flight attendant for Northwest airlines and Ialways said the training reminded me of a reality show; it very intense.And Iam glad it shows people what it takes to become a flight attendant.

  6. Wow. To tell you the truth, I didn’t even see the dedication to Pam. I didn’t know she died until I read these other articles. That’s really sad and heartbreaking because it seems that she loved not only her job alot, but she loved life alot. RIP Pam!! I guess she’ll never have to land again because she’s permanently up in her favorite place.. the sky. But I wouldn’t doubt it if she comes to visit Frontier Flight Attendant School to keep a watchful eye on it’s students, and possibly give them some encouragement. I’m from Colorado and am at Denver International quite a bit, And becoming a flight attendant is my dream. I’ve still got a few years to wait because I’m only 16, but I just hope that I get someone as brilliant as Pam as a teacher.

  7. As a flight attendant, currently on sick leave, I thoroughly enjoyed watching the show. It brought back a lot of memories, as it is a tremendously rewarding occupation. With sincerest sympathy, I would like to express my condolences to Frontier Airlines on the loss of their beloved crew member Pam Gardner. Thank you for the opportunity to express my thoughts.

    Sincerest success for all future flight attendants, look to the skies….


  8. I just watched my first episode of Flight Attendant Training. I was a flight attendant for Delta Air Lines. People do not realize how intense and hard the initial training really is. I enjoyed the job and am glad for the experience! My husband worked for Frontier in the last 60’s and retired after 35 years with Delta! Great show..and was very sad about Ms. Gardner.

  9. As an instructor myself, I found the show to be very inspirational and am glad that the challenges of becoming a flight attendant are finally being shown for what they are. The job and training are very challenging but not without great personal satisfaction. Flight attending is a very fulfilling, fun and adventurous career but demands more from us than learning to just serve peanuts and drinks.

  10. Former Frontier Flight Attendant

    As a former Frontier Flight Attendant, I must say I really enjoyed the show. Most importantly Pam Gardner was a great woman, and someone who cared about molding the future FA’s of Frontier.

  11. Can someone give me a brief run-down as to what was covered in the second episode? I missed it…also am I able to get the tape from Travel Channel (purchase) it for Episode 2? I am having someone tape any remaining episodes I miss.

  12. I have really enjoyed watching the Frontier Airlines Flight Attendant Training. As a Frequent Flyer it is nice to get a behind the scenes look at the professional training that is involved preparing for this high stress career. It is a pleasure to see the dedication of the FA instructors and their pupils. I was saddened to see the passing of Pam Gardner and I pray that the Lord will comfort her family and the FA Team as I’m sure she is sorely missed by all who knew her. Just watching a couple of the shows it is obvious that she impacted a lot of lives in a positive way.

  13. I’ve never been on an airplane but I love this show. Sure proves the flight attendants are more than a waitress in the air.
    My deepest sympathy goes out to Pams friends and family.

  14. I would love to be a flight attendant but Im too short..unfortunently. Im 20 and 5’0″ so no hope for growing anymore lol. I love the show and I am glad they show what is involved in the actual training. I was born in Greece and I live there 6 months out of the year. I can’t get enough of airports and airplanes as much as 9-11 scared me.

  15. Did Pam Gardner leave a family? Did she have any children? Would love to know her background, seemed like an interesting person.

  16. I truly enjoyed the program about flight attendant training school. I too was a flight attendant with U.S Airways and I was so happy to see that finally a show was put on to let the public know that we are more than just flying “waitress’s”.
    Our main concern is Safety and our Passengers comfort and well being. Our training is tough and very intense and I am very proud to say although I am as they call us an Angel of Mercy by being a Registered Nurse for my Occupation? I truly earned my “wings” the hard way in training as a flight attendant and enjoyed the challenge and was proud to wear them and the Uniform.

    My deepest sympathy to all of you at Frontier on your loss of a wonderful and beautiful person you had in Pam Gardner, she truly has her permanent GOLDEN WINGS now.

  17. They have just started showing Flight Attendant Training here in Australia 16 October 2006. I thought it was a good show, and I am sorry for the loss of Pam Gardner.

  18. does anyone know if there is a DVD available for this show .. I saw some episodes on discovery travel and living. but I want to watch all of it since I’m interested in becoming a flight attendant.
    MRP Pam Gardner .
