I had my medical a week ago, they're so friendly, they do do a quick eye test again, and a whisper test to check your hearing, they check your bloody pressure and do your bmi and you have to pee on a tester strip which doesn't test for drugs. It checks for things like ketones, protein and blood in urine ! You then go see the doctor who asks if you have any health problems or anything interesting and then he signs you off as fit to fly for 5 years ! x

Lighter crew meaning saving fuel :P..

Im just a bit underweight thats all. Nothing else wrong with me at all, eyes fine, no problems, haven't been to the doctor in years..!... Yet STILL worrying about the BMI check. :( Everyone keeps saying it'll be fine its mainly for the overweight people but I worry about the smallest of things lol..

My BMI is 17.3, which is underweight. Hope its not a case of health being perfect then being underweight and being thrown out :(

Seriously don't worry too much. You will be just fine. And I mean you said it yourself! You haven't been to the doctor for ages.. SO that's demonstrate that you're in a good health.

Do you already have a training Date?

Thanks Ellen for the info! Most aprecited :D

New CAA rules came into play in April 2014 meaning all Cabin Crew now must undergo a FULL medical. Therefore, hearing, eyesight etc are all checked at the medical assessment. It is very different to years ago where you just filled out a form. It is quite an extensive check and full details can be found at CAA.CO.UK under the Cabin Crew section. This new legislation is something all Airlines must legally comply with as standard and so is not upto the individual airlines criteria as it is set down by the Civil Aviation Authority.

Surprisingly, not many existing Crew are actually even aware of this new ruling. Even existing Crew must now have a Medical Check at 5 year intervals.

Luke - as for your concerns, you have nothing to worry about. The weight in proportion to height requirement has been ongoing and i flew for 6 years with the same stats as yourself and it will be no issue. As previously said, as long as you can reach emergency equipment, fit through an overwing exit and wear the Jump Seat Harness.

HI guys! any info about the dental check? I have some dark dental fillings since I was a child and my wisdom teeth should be pulled out but I never did it...

Do you know if they are strict about it?
