Here is my take on cabin crew in various airlines in India. I have recently flown Jet, Kingfisher, Indian and Spicejet – so these are the data points. Jet Airways clearly has the best cabin crew. Many years ago when Jet had just started, I recollect thinking that Indian Airlines had far superior cabin crew (poised & professional) and the Jet crew came across as kids. The wheel has turned a full circle. The Indian airlines crew looks like a jaded & tired lot now. Jet airways on the other hand has a crew that has matured into poised & competent professionals over one decade or more of experience. For a new airline, Kingfisher seems to have trained it cabin crew well, although the lack of overall expereince shows sometimes. SpiceJet seemed to have kids with more hair-gel than poise.
