Donna Jensen was raised literally and figuratively on the wrong side of the trailer park in Silver Springs, Nevada. She always believed it was her destiny to get out of Silver Springs. After reading Sally Weston's book, Sally who is arguably the most famous now ex-flight attendant in the world, Donna believes the path to leaving Silver Springs is to become a flight attendant despite never having been on an airplane. After an initial bumpy start to this career, Donna shows a natural flair for the job, so much so that she applies to work for world class Royal Airlines, where Sally Weston mentors. After meeting Donna, Sally believes Donna is destined for flight attendant greatness, namely working first class in the New York-Paris flights. Donna believes in herself as a flight attendant, but has to overcome some obstacles, including flight attendant trainer John Witney, who has some hidden anger issues…

Did You Know?
The segment where the trainee flight attendants at Royalty Airways are undergoing training by Mike Myers's character included a lesson on how to deal with terrorists. The scene was cut from the film, and was not included on the DVD release as a deleted scene.
When Christine makes the "assess the window" comment, she is wearing the long sleeve teal shirt, but in Donna's reaction shot she is wearing the sleeveless teal shirt. When it's Donna's turn to "assess the window", she is wearing the long sleeve shirt. The class dresses identically throughout the training course.
You put the wrong em-PHA-sis on the wrong syl-LA-ble.
I thought it was a very cute and charming movie
I really cant believe some of the bad reviews of this movie that I have
been reading on here! The movie is EXACTLY what it promises to be; cute,
charming, and yes, a little bit fluffy!! However, it does not take itself
too seriously and that makes its flaws forgiveable. I thought it was very
entertaining and refreshing, come on people, LIGHTEN UP!!
