a glimpse into the life of a flight
attendant might leave you more thankful.
Dominic Jay is a flight attendant
based out of San Francisco.
Because Jay’s job requires him to fly all over the
world, paying San Francisco rent for an apartment
he’s barely in doesn’t seem financially smart.
That’s why many flight attendants
have “crash pads” in different cities
that they share with their coworkers.
In Jay’s case, he shares an apartment
with 20 other flight attendants.
If you’re picturing a house or multi-leveled apartment,
stop right there. According to Jay’s TikTok tour, it looks
like it’s a simple two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment.
The living room houses a large L-shaped couch and
stacks of cubbies which are assigned to each person
living in the apartment. Jay stores his bedding in his.
Jay says that each attendant pays $250 a month
for the apartment. “We’re never all here at the same
time, the most I’ve experienced is about five people”.
“I’ve always wondered about this,”
