A FORMER flight attendant ditched the skies to focus on her side hustle – and revealed that she now rakes in over £25K a MONTH.
Alexia Grace, 24, says she “doesn’t miss” the rude flyers since she decided to quit the cabin crew to make racy content on OnlyFans.
The 24-year-old worked for Jet2 and then Costa coffee, but left her job as a barista in March 2021 to take saucy snaps instead.
She was only making £600 a week on the site at the time, but started pulling eight hour shifts a day to grow her account – which now rakes in an eye-watering £25k a month.
Alexia is now looking to buy her first home with a budget of around 200k and has enjoyed traveling with her new earnings – spending six months in Dubai last year and two months in Mexico this year.
She’s made a whopping £270k on OnlyFans since starting in June 2020, and has even treated herself to a brand new Mercedes worth £25k last month.
Alexia, who lives in Matlock, Derbyshire, said: “I really, really enjoy it. The social media side of things is my favorite part of it – I love TikTok and Instagram and that I can make that my job.
“I love the freedom too – the freedom of working where I want.
“I bought myself a new car two weeks ago as well – it’s a Mercedes-Benz A250 AMG Line.
“I was worried about what other people would think but you soon get over that.
“A lot of people think it’s easy money but it’s not, you really have to put the time in.
“It’s being able to afford to have a full fridge now and being able to fill my family’s fridges. That’s the most pleasing thing about it, because some people can’t even afford to eat right now.
“I know for a fact that if I wasn’t doing OnlyFans, I wouldn’t be able to be renting a house, I’d be living with my parents.”
During her time as an air hostess, she said she was disheartened by the long shifts and low pay, and felt “you don’t get paid nearly as much as you should for the work you do.”
She began her new career in June 2020 while living at her boyfriend’s parents’ home, where she dreamed of buying her own place.
She said: “Cabin crew for Jet2 was really hard work and long hours – you would be working well over 12-hour shifts.
“Customers could be extremely rude and the pay was only around £1,300 a month.
“Passengers would moan about food or drinks being out of stock – we’re in the sky, we can’t exactly pop to Tesco!

“I then worked at a Costa Coffee in a service station for a year and a half, but I was making less than £300 a week as a barista.
“I left Costa Coffee because I wanted to put more time into OnlyFans. I felt like I had to leave so I could make it on OnlyFans.
“I just wanted a job where I had that freedom of being my own boss and actually make some good money from it.”
Alexia is still loving the freedom of being her own boss, and added that her boyfriend Ryan, 24, and family and friends have all been supportive of her new career path.
“I never thought about quitting, and I think that’s why I’ve been so successful in it. I genuinely enjoy what I do,” she said.
“It was disheartening making only £500 because obviously other people are making a killing, but I carried on with it and I’m so glad I did.
“In July 2021, I made £2k, and then in August, I made £10k. It was me coming to the realization that you’ve got to put everything you’ve got into it.
“I realized you need to post on social media as much as you possibly can, like making TikToks and firing it out as quickly as I could.
“I’ve got people who work for me now, but back then, I’d be working eight hours a day – I’d put in night shifts speaking to people and doing those long hours got me where I am now.
“A lot of people think it’s easy money but it’s not, you really have to put the time in. Luckily, I really, really enjoy it.”
