While there, she discussed the upcoming series, which is based on the namesake novel by Chris Bohjalian. In an attempt to get to know her character, a flight attendant named Cassandra Bowden, Cuoco studied the aviation staff on her recent trips to ensure she embodied the role to a T.

So, what exactly did she take away from the experience? “I learned that their hair always has to be back,” she said. “And they immediately change—on a long flight—out of their heels and put on their comfy shoes.” And honestly, same.

However, Cuoco admitted that she’s probably not cut out for a life in the skies. “I don’t know how flight attendants do it—I would be internally annoyed the entire time,” she said, adding, “They’ve got a lot of patience.”

The Big Bang Theory star went on to say that if there’s one thing she learned from being a flight attendant, it’s that you really do have to care about how the passengers feel.

She continued, “And you know some people have a fear of flying, and you’ve got to have some sort of empathy when you’re on a plane—so empathy is something I’m learning a lot about.”

Well, looks like we’ll be overly friendly to the next flight attendant we come across.

Cindy Mackenzie, Air hostess and public face of Qantas.Millions of television viewers know her as the face of the new Qantas. But for Cindy Mackenzie, it was a case of deja vu.Two years ago, the attractive flight attendant made her screen debut in another airline advertising campaign - for her then employer Australian Airlines.Few outside the group would appreciate the significance of her re-appearance in the past few weeks in the first TV ads for the combined Qantas and Australian.It was not, however, lost on the Qantas chairman, Gary Pemberton, and his board. The choice of Cindy has been a deliberate ploy to pep up the morale of her Australian colleagues, still hurting over the $400 million takeover. August 23, 1993.
