A FLIGHT attendant has revealed the one suitcase they all swear by which never breaks when travelling the world.

The flight attendant, based in Florida, goes by the name Sharmy and often shares secrets of the job.

Her latest video to her 22,600 followers was about the suitcases all crew use – and why they are so good.

She explained: "How come all the flight attendants you see at the airport seem to have the exact same carry on?
