air hostess training. is it really important?

Question by pepperoni: air hostess training. is it really important?
im 5’7″, done modelling earlier (only to pay for my own fees while in college) and currently pursuing animation studies. but now i am tired of my animation course and the guys are far more talented than my student work and i feel demoralised and accept that while animation industry may b tough for me, job of an air hostess might prove to be better for me.
i know that i am well groomed, know the ethics and meet all the requirements for an air hostess. i am also aware that the job is only glamorous on the outside and that, an air hostess has to take rude passengers in her stride and yet b as polite and stuff..
i have heard about various air hostess training n grooming institutes that help the girls get through with interviews and get selected. but i dont intend to do that because i feel most of them are only doing business and cheat the girls with high course fees.
i would like to know if the airlines’ recruiters only select candidates who have done the grooming courses from those “air hostess training” sort of institutes, or can i walk into an interview right away?
kindly let me know.
i am already 22.. in2-3years, even airlines wont look at me for recruitment, lol. so i need to make a quick decision..
thanx. . 🙂 all answers will b appreciated and the rude ones shall b reported. lol
please be genuine. i alone know right now how confused i am. thank you once again.

In the U.S., all you need is a high school diploma or GED to qualify. Since the airlines will be training you, there is no need to go through additional courses. Being able to speak another language will be to your benefit and any experience you have in dealing with customers is always good as well.
