Welcome to Red Hair and Redeyes! I'm glad you're here. I'm Kristin, and I'm a flight attendant for a major US airline. I've spent the past three years going wherever the person on the other end of the phone tells me to, 

and what a ride it's been!


This blog is a collection of my travel stories, flight life insights, and a tribute to joy on the job. Once during boarding, a little girl told me "I LIKE YOUR HAIR!" so that and my many working hours overnight inspired the title for this blog,

"Red Hair and Redeyes."


So, thanks for stopping by! If you're a flight attendant hopeful, I hope my blog inspires you to pursue this awesome career. If you're here for my travel stories, thanks for reading! I hope they entertain and motivate you to go out and create some of your own. If you're curious about life in the aviation industry, I hope my experiences serve to inform you about this crazy lifestyle. If you have any questions, please do let me know- I’d be happy to help out.


Welcome to life from the jumpseat!

About the blog 


Meet Kristin 

I'm a 20-something girl from Virginia. My Catholic faith and my family are most important to me. I'm a bride-to-be and will soon be a military wife and the newest resident of one of my favorite cities- Charleston, South Carolina!


I love to use my flight benefits to visit friends and family, create adventure, visit Catholic churches all over the world, and take my mom on layovers! I am based in Washington, D.C. 


When I'm not flying, you can find me spending time with Chris, decorating my house, reading a historical fiction novel, or online shopping. 

Thanks for being here!
