Pros

Benefits both health and flight.

Cons

management, I had the worst boss in one department I worked at which is the reason I left. There were some outdate work practices and a manager in a position which required modern IT skills, she had none and it was a disaster yet she still had her job her befefits and the ability to scare off good company minded staff. The salary scale and starting at the bottom regardless of past airline experience. So you end up working with people less qualified than you and making the same if not less because of salary scales.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Realize the potential of staff. Realize the cost of a bad manager. Recognise past airline experience as a bonus and start the staff at the relevant pay scale. Ive worked internationaly at 3 airlines now and have had to start at the bottom each time.

    Former Employee - Flight Attendant in Atlanta, GA

    Pros

    Travel benefits, health insurance, and decent pay. Most crew is fun to fly with; you meet the most interesting people. More days off than the average job. Buddy passes, which allow you to take or send family and friends on tips. Being able to see the world at someone else's expense.

    Cons

    Long hours, too much sit time, not enough sit time. Passengers can be difficult at times, to say the least. Sometimes, questionable accommodations. Having to commute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is key

    I have given 40% of income and promised to be brought back to original pay. Still below 7 years later.

    Pros

    Travel, fellow flight attendants, flexibility

    Cons

    Don't trust company. Very sexually discriminatory towards women. Men are much more likely to succeed at Delta.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start appreciating your Flight Attendants don't just give lip service. Actually make the work rules and pay liveable. Treat women with the same respect you treat men.
