    There are very rigid things airlines use to select flight attendants. They look for a certain maximum height, grooming, mannerisms, ability to stay calm in stressful situations. Presentation is a big thing as they need people who are very good at grooming and take a lot of effort to present perfectly. You see flight attendants with their hair perfect, their clothes looking immaculate, and an ability to deal with people with cheer and friendliness.

    Yes, it is hard, because there are many, many applicants for every open position.

    If you were to be hired, then it would be many years before you could choose your route. Only the most senior people get to do that.

    If you use bad English, it’ll be hard to be “AN” international flight attendant. U may have to settle for cleaning toilets

    Airlines have many criteria, Minimum height, high school diploma/education. Often you would start on shorthaul domestic routes, and after gaining some seniority move to long distance routes. There are many applications ,when openings come out, so competition is fierce. The more you stand out the more likely you'll be to get selected. Choose an international airline.

    Airlines have different requirements- look on their websites. Most flight attendants start with shorter, local flights, often with the "express" division of the airline. As they gain experience and seniority, they can bid on the flights they want to work. I know one flight attendant who started with Northwest Express, then Northwest, which was taken over by Delta, and now she mostly works long, international flights.

    You need at least a high school diploma or equivalent in the US and need to be at least 21 because you may be selling or serving alcohol. Sometimes airlines look for flight attendants for international routes but you will need to be able to speak the language. Otherwise those who are more senior will get to select those routes.
