    Flight benefits are nice. 401k Match is decent. Health insurance costs have risen.

    Former Flight Attendant in Atlanta, Georgia

    The best thing about Delta Air Lines's benefits package is the employee discount! Flight attendants, significant others, proven parents & their spouses, etc. can fly free!

    time off and salary do not compensate the travel that is supposed to compensate a lesser salary from other companies as the taxes and now the many code shares make it nearly impossible to non rev. Yesterday for example there were 54 non revs trying to board a flight within the US.

    Current Aviation Maintenance Technician in Los Angeles, California

    TIME OFF: 56 Hours of PPT every year which you could cash out if unused or have them rolled over the following year for a total of up to I believe 180 Hours. 10 Floating holidays which we could use anytime; awesome! On your first year anniversary, you receive TWO weeks of vacation which you MUST use by your next anniversary. After the 5th year, you get THREE weeks of vacation. After the 10th year, you get FOUR weeks of vacation. Anyone that currently has 25+ years has FIVE Weeks of vacation.

    401K :5% Match + 2% is given for FREE for up to 7%. Even if you put nothing in, you still get 2%. AWESOME!

    HEALTH CARE: Different choices from UnitedHealthCare such as HRA-Gold, HRA-Platinum, FSA

    VISION: Davis Vision

    DENTAL: Delta Dental

    LIFE INSURANCE: $50,000 for FREE

    BONUS: $100 on our last paycheck of the month if we reach our goals, which we usually do. We also get a Profit Share bonus every year; 2013 got every employee an 8.2% bonus check. We're expecting almost double for 2014! :D

    Last but not least, FREE FLIGHTS! Employees get unlimited flights completely free unless you're traveling international; all you have to pay is the International Tax. Flights for Spouses/Children are great because they get unlimited free flights+inputed income. However, flights for Companions and Buddy Passes are horrible. Buddy Passes are pointless because it comes out to almost the same price as a regular ticket fare but you have to flight StandBy; not worth it at all. Companions fly unlimited at a somewhat discounted rate but it could still get pretty pricey depending on where you're going. (Ex - Round trip flight for a companion from LAX to LAS is $40. Round Trip flight from LAX to JFK is $200.)
