The classroom has a real aeroplane interior that you get to use to carry out full flight procedures, from serving from the trolley to the pre-flight safety drill. The space is equipped with all the gear that a usual demonstration would have. (I’ve always wanted to do that!)
There’s also a travel agent’s desk so you can get a real feel for what it’s like to work in the travel and tourism business. You get to train as if you’re already in the job.
