Reflecting on 20 years of Vista: Insights from our Cabin Hosts 

We spoke to Sigrid Claussen, a VistaJet Cabin Host and trainer who’s been a part of the Vista team for nearly its entire 20 years existence. 

What’s it been like being part of Vista’s growth? 

Being part of that growth has been truly remarkable. From starting on the Challenger 605 in 2004 to witnessing the advancements in aircraft technology and working with the highest quality products on new aircraft, the journey has been incomparable. Hosting clients from around the world has not only expanded horizons but also added to the richness of the experience. It’s been incredibly rewarding overall.

What are some tips you would give to someone starting in the company? 

Staying flexible and adaptable is key in this job. Being well-rested and prepared enables you to handle any surprises that may arise. Conducting thorough pre-flight research, including knowing the names of clients, catering details, flight times, weather conditions, etc., demonstrates professionalism and ensures clients feel well-hosted. The more information you have, the better you can anticipate needs and provide exceptional service.

What does a typical day on the job look like for you now? 

Over the years, I’ve learned how important preparation is to the success of my role. 

The day of the flight, I’ll arrive at the aircraft 2 hours prior to the clients to prepare the catering, bedding and also to ensure the aircraft is clean. It’s the little details like these that truly make our service bespoke and worthwhile. 

Overall, it is important to me that my guests feel welcome and comfortable. Their satisfaction is my top priority. 

Following each flight, we diligently prepare the aircraft for its next departure, ensuring it’s primed and ready to go. And then? Well, it’s time for some well-deserved rest. As a Cabin Host navigating the globe, I’ve learned to seize any opportunity for sleep whenever it presents itself.
