Hello, my name is Johnny Monk, I’m cabin crew for TUI airways UK and have flown with them as seasonal crew for nearly 3 years.
I’m 21 years old and started flying in 2018 at the tender age of 18. I am currently a business student at a London university. I am also a youtuber, online influencer and many more labels I could easily add in terms content creating.
I have always thought aviation was so cool to be a part of, from watching the TV show Airline UK to playing flight simulator at home. When I left college I had 3 A levels at grade C but at the time university didn’t sit right so I went for a few assessment days for cabin crew.
My first was Ryanair and Jet2.com. I got the job with Jet2 and then spent a season with them. The following year I moved over to TUI as I knew they’d do long haul destinations. I moved from London Stansted to Bristol and will be doing my 3rd summer this season.
In recent times, the aviation sector has suffered massively and I am incredibly grateful I still have this wonderful job. The opportunities, the people and the memories make it worth coming into work every single day.
I try and bring a lot of humour and charisma into work not only for my colleagues but for the passengers. Every single one of them has worked super hard the whole year, so by treating themselves to a holiday, it is the easiest way to forget about the dramas of life.
To be a part of their escape is quite extraordinary. If you have any questions or thoughts you can find me and more of my work here:
