Cabin crew often argue that the job is not as glamorous as it's made out to be, but you certainly wouldn't believe it looking at these flight attendants.

Sharing their enviable lifestyles on social media under the hashtag #cabincrewlife staff from airlines such as Emirates and Norwegian Air have glossy Instagram profiles, jet set lifestyles and banging beach bodies, according to the Daily Mail.

And it's perhaps no surprise that many have sideline careers as models, bodybuilders and personal trainers.

Aeroflot hostess Victoria Tzuranova for instance uses her stopovers in locations such as Israel, Thailand and Bali to flaunt her figure on the beach in skimpy swimwear and show off her eye-watering flexibility with a spot of yoga.

When she's not serving drinks and snacks in the air, the fitness fanatic has a second job as a presenter on the Russian Music Box channel.

Her Emirates compatriot Georgia Nielsen from Melbourne has built up an impressive 35,000 followers on Instagram thanks to her glamorous travel shots and sexy bikini snaps.

The hostess admits that while there are downsides to the job, she often jets off to another city just to have dinner to make the most of her days off.

"Put simply, just like every other job there are ups and downs - jetlag and sleep management are the biggest issues as you can imagine but over time you learn how to best manage this, everyone's body is different!' she told Instagram fans.

"It can be hard work but the opportunities and experiences you get out of it far outweigh any negative sides and I am very lucky that I don't seem to have too much issue balancing everything out.

"I try to make the most of days off by either going away for the night, or doing ridiculous things like flying to Monaco or Istanbul for dinner, which if I plan properly can cost less than going out for dinner in Dubai!

"Those sorts of experiences I just could never do living a normal 9-5 life in Australia, so I am extremely lucky.

"Everyone has different ways of being cabin crew though. I really enjoy it."

Georgia is by no means the only one enjoying a five star lifestyle while jetting around the world.

Norwegian Airlines' Rainam combines photos of her flashing her long legs in her uniform with plenty of summery shots in skimpy bikinis.

But it's not just female flight attendants turning their followers green with envy.
Their male colleagues are equally eager to show off their aspirational lives on social media.

Daniel Najarro Smith combines his career as a flight attendant for Monarch with a spot of modelling that gives him the chance to show off his toned physique.

He may be the pilot rather than cabin crew, but Brazilian pilot Hudson Sá has also won a legion of female fans thanks to his handsome snaps from the cockpit.

And when he's not jetting around the world, he likes to pose in the tightest of swimming trunks as he enjoys breaks on the beach.

Colombian pilot Tavo, who has an impressive 21,000 follower on Instagram, also likes to flaunt his chiselled body when he's not busy in the cockpit.

Meanwhile, Egypt-born Mohamed Naeem Salama who is a flight attendant with Emirates also has a sideline career in bodybuilding.

The muscled hunk came second in the fashion physique category at Mr Dubai in 2014, and is also a brand ambassador for a fitness company.
