The Faces of PSA Featuring Isaac Spry

Name: Isaac Spry

Title: Flight Attendant

How long have you worked for PSA? 1.5 years

How long have you been in the airline industry? This is my first job working in the airline industry.

Where did you work before PSA? In film and television as a tailor. I also worked for IHG Hotel chain. I still work part-time in the film industry as a fashion designer, meeting with designers to discuss their ideas. I take measurements to create and alter clothing for the actors. I sketch designs, make my own sewing patterns, and package my designs.

You are involved in costume design and have worked on some high-profile television shows. Tell us about that: I’ve been in the industry for about eight years. My primary role is to consult with the costume designer and bring his/her ideas to life. Sometimes that entails making a costume from scratch or altering existing clothing. I meet with the designer and the actor/actress in fittings. We discuss the looks, take measurements, and pin garments for alterations. The biggest challenges are actually very similar to aviation. The days are long and unpredictable. You have to be quick on your feet and able to adapt to constant change. I’ve had the pleasure of working on Black Panther, The Walking Dead, Tyler Perry films, and many other shows.

Did your time working in hospitality help you as a Flight Attendant? I developed my customer service skills in the hospitality industry and it sparked my interest in becoming a Flight Attendant. I’ve found that one of the most important factors in serving customers is to listen. You won’t always be able to meet their needs, but if you make eye contact, listen, and make an honest attempt to assist, most will be OK.

What brought you to PSA? I was ready for a change in my career. I enjoy working in the film industry as a tailor and bringing the costume designer’s ideas to life – my gift is fashion design, but it was never my passion. I’ve wanted to be a Flight Attendant ever since I was 20 years old. I wanted to travel and vlog about fashion and travel.

Give us a brief overview of what you do: As a Flight Attendant, I try to sell my customers a memorable experience. I love on-time departures. It’s like a game to me. I love to refresh my tablet and see “left gate on time” in green.

Where’s your favorite place you have traveled to? Paris

What do you love about working for PSA? I love the flexibility. I love the fact that no two days are the same. I love meeting new people and creating new experiences.

Would you recommend PSA and why? Absolutely. I love the fact that PSA celebrates diversity, and we have camaraderie among our team.

Tell us one thing about your role most people don’t know: As Flight Attendants, we are the image of the brand. We have the ability to transform minds by bringing positivity.

What has been the most rewarding part of your Flight Attendant job? Being able to live my dreams. I will be 50 years old this year and I’ve wanted to be a Flight Attendant since I was 20.

Tell us something few people know about you: I was invited to go on Project Runway my last week of Flight Attendant training and I declined.
