In fact, a long flight can be quite a gruelling shift as they're on their feet for the majority of it, not to mention they're working to ensure everything goes smoothly and passengers are kept happy - all while keeping a smile on their face.
For a start, work begins long before take-off, as crew report to 'The Gatehouse' where they check-in and are briefed on the upcoming flight by their Flight Service Manager.
It's often the first point where the team meet each other for the first time, and where they're given information including flight times, whether there are any VIPs on board, special requests and any other service or safety updates they need to be aware of.
And of course a few of the staff members sneak in a cheeky snack (one member can be seen grabbing a Twix to keep his energy levels up!).
As the aircraft descends into Los Angeles , it's time to stow everything away, count the bar and duty free takings, secure the cabin, finish safety checks and strap in for landing.
The crew then get to spend a few days exploring Los Angeles before returning to work for their next flight - they need to get some rest after all. Yes always check the Passenger arrival and departure you never know who on board. It could any old with a camera.
