Age should never be problem as long as you are in good phisical condition. But honestly, if you are a US citizen, can travel with a US Passport, lift required amount, and meet all the other checks.....their is nothing slowing you down!!

Now I am a little confused about the requirements to become a flight attendant. Do I have to be an US citizen? I am permanent resident and I thought this was ok. The physical part I am ok, I am in very good health and  good physical condition.
