Abstract This paper aims to explore the anatomopolitics of the construction of female flight attendant` bodies in two contexts. On the one side, we explore it in the context of the “non-places” that are connected with the exertion of the profession and on the other side in the context of training processes and disciplinary techniques that major airlines use in order to manage/discipline groups of individuals and to construct a particular body technology, which is based on power and knowledge and which creates docile/functional bodies. Based on the early foucauldian analysis on discipline and power and using the ´analytical auto-ethnography´ as our main methodology, we explore the particular disciplinary techniques and the means of correct training that are being used by the airlines, nowadays, so as to achieve the ´dressage´ of their female flight attendants. We also detect analogies between equivalent mechanisms of the past (late 17th - 18th century). Moreover, we explore the concept of ´human capital´ and how it affects different kind of compulsions (external or self-imposed) that transform the body and define the individual who (in the context of the capitalist structure of the market) is striving for a never-ending accumulation -an abiding chase for the accumulation of skills and experience, which also targets to the accumulation of privileges, material goods and social value.
