Former Employee - Flight Attendant in Philadelphia, PA
Former Employee - Flight Attendant in Philadelphia, PA

I worked at US Airways full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Lots of Flying Time
Reserve lines are pretty junior
If you want to fly extra there is always plenty of flying

Cons

Cannot drop a trip without picking up another to replace it
If you drop a trip, the one you pick up must touch a day of the dropped trip. If you drop a weekend trip then the trip you pick up needs to touch a day of the weekend.

    Pros

    Lots of flexibility, great benefits

    Cons

    With recent mergers there is no real sense of unity. Division among work groops

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember the front line employees dealing with the public and generating revenue when making decisions and changes, and of course pay increases ....especially outrageous ones to High level exes

    I have been working at US Airways full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's an airline job. For those who have been bitten, it's pretty much like every other airline. Flight benefits can be a pro, but flights are always full so it can be difficult to fly standby. There is a 20% discount if you want to pay for your ticket and fly positive space. Nothing outstanding about this company, but nothing that is horrible by comparison to other airlines.

    Cons

    Promotions to management are often based on inter-office politics rather than filling positions with the right people. There are also way too many managers and directors than necessary. Also, there is an 8% cap on how much of a raise you can get if you get promoted. This makes a lot of good people not want to get promoted because it's not worth the small raise to take on the added work load, hours and responsibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trim back the number of managers/directors and better select your leaders based on experience and ability to lead rather than based on politics.
