    Pros

    Travel benefits nothing like travelling for free even if it is standby

    Cons

    Management and the pay is very low due to benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Auditing internal tickets to create debit memos to cost centers does not make sense how this sept is value added.

    Pros

    Great company. Dominated by former America West personnel in upper management. They treated their pilots well.

    Cons

    Once America West merged with US Airways, US Airways east pilots refused to accept a legitimate seniority integration that was arbitrated professionally. This caused eight years of no new contract, stunted growth and career expectations of the former America West pilots. The East hated the West pilots and the West pilots hated the East pilots. Then the company merged with AA. The west pilots are enjoying the east pilots getting hosed.

    Pros

    The training was excellent- very thorough and detailed.

    Cons

    The pay, benefits, promotional opportunities and support from Management are lacking in this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some flight attendant supervisors do not understand what our job entails because they were never flight attendants. Before managers are brought on board, they should fly for a month and see what it is like for us. That way, they can actually tell us advise us on how to do our job better and support us when we need it most.
