This post provides details on becoming Lufthansa Cabin Crew.

Application process

You can apply for a job as Lufthansa Cabin Crew on their careers website online. The online application will require you to upload a CV, which should demonstrate that you have the qualities needed to succeed as Lufthansa Cabin Crew. Need help tailoring your CV to meet the requirements for the job? Download my Cabin Crew CV template.

If your application is successful you will then be invited to attend an interview. On the day of your interview, you will also be required to pass an English test and talk to a psychologist. 

If you are successful at this stage, the next step in the application process is the assessment day. Here, you will be asked to perform the reaching test to make sure you are tall enough to reach the overhead lockers. You will be checked to make sure you have no visible tattoos!

You will also have to take part in group exercises to see how you work in a team and how you would deal with certain situations. 

Becoming Lufthansa Cabin Crew


Your training will be based in either Munich or Frankfurt and will last around 3 months. Before you begin your training, you are required to complete an online pre-course to help prepare you.

Your training will then cover everything you need to know for the job. You will cover customer service, emergency procedures, and safety. In order to complete the training and start your new job as Lufthansa Cabin Crew, you will be required to pass a number of practical and written assessments.

Nervous about training and want to find out more? Take a look at my Becoming Cabin Crew e-book.

Working life

While working as Lufthansa Cabin Crew you will fly short, medium and long-haul flights from either Frankfurt or Munich. Your roster will differ each month, so each month will be completely different from the last! 

If you want to hear the experience of a current Lufthansa Cabin Crew member read one of my previous posts – My Cabin Crew Experience: Emirates and Lufthansa.


Your salary is made up of your fixed salary and your flying hours. Your fixed salary will normally be around 10,000-13,000.

Being a member of Lufthansa Cabin Crew you are entitled to discounted flights for yourself and your family. However, there is no specific benefit program in place. 


Since their Cabin Crew are based in Frankfurt or Munich, Lufthansa provides all of their Cabin Crew with free accommodation.
