I’m a flight attendant for a major airline based out of Charlotte, NC. I live in Baltimore and have been commuting to work for the last several months and it’s beginning to take a toll on me. I’m not the only one in this boat. It seems that the majority of flight attendants commute long distances to work. When we only have a day off in between flights we’re staying in hotels. Several of us have decided to go together and rent an apartment that we can all use so we started looking for apartments for rent in South Charlotte.
Close proximity to Charlotte Douglas International Airport is an absolute must. We don’t want to spend hours to get to the apartment as we all know how treacherous the traffic can be in Charlotte, especially during rush hour. We found one that was only minutes from the airport and decided to take a closer look. We all gathered around the computer and were very pleased with what we saw on their website. They had a resort style pool that I know we would all take advantage of. The part I liked the best was the onsite fitness center. It will be nice to be able to work out on my days off. Another perk is the 24-hour dry cleaning service. This is something I know we would all use for our uniforms. The apartments were absolutely beautiful and were modern and up to date.
We collectively decided to schedule a visit to take a tour on our next layover in Charlotte. To say we were all extremely excited is an understatement. Splitting the cost of an apartment four ways won’t be too bad of a financial hardship on any of us and we’d be able to actually relax on our days off.
