What is a good drink to have in the airport bar pre-flight?
Topic: Business plan for bar idea
July 21, 2019 / By Charlene Question:
I'm going on a vacation with some other ladies next month and actually this will be my first time to fly. Our plane departs at 9:30am and I am not much of a drinker, especially at that time of day. However, we plan to visit the airport bar before we leave and have a drink before boarding our plane. Do you have any suggestions on a good (stiff) morning cocktail that won't have a tendency to make me nauseous on the plane? Thanks!
Jason: Thanks for the good information. You make a good point. I'm meeting up with a group of old high school friends and we haven't seen each other in years. We've planned this trip for awhile but we are all a bit tense and several of us have a fear of flying. So we discussed having a drink first to ease our anxiety. But as you have advised, maybe it's not such a good idea afterall.

If this is your first time flying, it's better that you drink water. Flying is dehydrating; alcohol and coffee both make that worse.
Also the cabin is only pressurized to 3,000 metres (9,800 ft), and you will have altitude effects, areas with a lot of blood vessels like your intestines will swell. All of this and motion sickness contribute to the nausea some people feel.
You should really not drink for your first flight to see how the rest of it affects you before you try flying and drinking.
You say "ladies" so I'm assuming that ladies are above the "Have-to-fit-in" attitude of juveniles.
I fly all the time and have a drink or two especially since I only fly Business class, but I wouldn't go to the airport bar at 09:30. I'm not sure they can even serve at that hour.

you will likely gain weight, as not sleeping decreases your metabolism and increases blood sugar levels (thus making you more hungry as the caffeine wears off). If your HW is too immense that you need to be pulling all nighters to accomplish it, then you need to talk to your teachers about lightning the load. no child should be losing sleep every single night.
They usually make foo foo drinks at the airport bars, hardly any alcohol. Just have one or two drink before going on the plane. Don't over do it because there is nothing worse than waiting to take off when one needs to pee.
I usually drink a couple pints of beer prior to boarding. I like to do so because, even though I will have to pee, it puts me straight to sleep for a good number of hours.

Have a nice double bloody mary....vodka and tomato juice. Its not a bad drink to start the day and is okay socially.

The ever-popular bloody mary or a mimosa (champagne & oj) are acceptable "morning drinks!" If you don't like oj try a poinsettia...champagne and cranberry juice!

Most airlines require you to be at least 18, but the most common minimum age is 21.
There is much more to the position than smiling and being attractive.
All cabin crew have extensive training in emergency procedures, first aid, security and safety.
Don't take courses on your own; this will not give you any advantage. Any airline that hires you will put you through extensive training.
To make you competitive for an airline job, you must have some good customer service background.
The ideal candidate will be well groomed, poised and friendly, with weight proportionate to height.
You also must not have multiple piercings (usually only one per ear lobe), and no visible tattoos, meaning nothing above the shoulders, below the elbows or below the knees.
You must be able to show that you are gracious and handle pressure well, that you are a team player and a good decision maker.
If the airline likes your resume, you will be invited to an information session, then to a group interview, and next to a one on one interview.
When the airline is ready to offer you a job, you will be asked to provide fingerprints and your passport, a 10 year background check will be conducted, and you will be given a physical assessment and drug test.
If all that is good, you will be scheduled for initial training which last 4-6 weeks.
Be prepared to relocate to whichever base you are assigned to, and to be on reserve for one year to several years.
This means you will be on call and may have to show up in uniform with luggage at the airport within 2 hours ready to fly on a multi-day trip
Get ready to fly!!
