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

    Pros

    I loved every aspect of working as a USAirways flight attendant. I resigned when I had a baby so I wouldn't miss a moment of his life.

    Cons

    There weren't any cons at the time other than not providing child care at the airports.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take advise from the best CEO of USAIrways, Mr. Colodny.

    I have been working at US Airways part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The flight benefits can't be beat and the job is not difficult at all.

    Cons

    Low pay would be the only con really. The flight benefits make up for the low pay, but if you are not using the benefits or do not fly, then there is no reason to work for USAir or any airline with minimum wage starting salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more opportunities to advance in the company.

    Pros

    I had a great experience working for US Airways. I left to have my children but still miss the camaraderie and flight benefits.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the whole airline industry has suffered over the years and many less senior staff have lost their jobs because of it.
