  • 401K Plan  (23 comments)

    “Not enough to retire on after many years due to low match”

  • Employee Discount  (14 comments)

    “You can standby on flights for free, or get a discount on paid tickets. Standby can be hard for those with less seniority.”

  • Health Insurance  (11 comments)

    “The high deductible means you’re going to spend a lot out of pocket. Dental coverage is horrible.”

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Customer Service Lead in Seattle, Washington State

    Travel is the best perk about the job, the pay is minimal and it doesn’t go off of the cost of living which is unfortunate. Having a second job or secondary income is necessary, but very difficult to plan out. The secondary job will have to be VERY flexible.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Customer Service Agent in San Francisco, California

    You're able to unpaid time off as often as you'd like as long as you can have coworkers cover your hours. 401k to match, health benefits. You must work to accrue PTO.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Seattle, Washington State

    Travel is good, pay is not great but fair regardless of the companies successes and revenues. Always keeps pay at bargain basement.

    Standby flight benefits are both the best and worst part of the benefits. They are hard to take advantage of as a new employee, but improve with seniority. You can also retire with them if you stick around long enough.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Director in Seattle, Washington State

    Best - flight benefits Worse - recently capped cell phone reimbursement to $50/mo

  • Feb 16, 2019
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Manager in Seattle, Washington State

    PTO was reduced and now is no longer competitive. Start at two weeks and senior employees had PTO taken away.

  • Dec 22, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Flight Attendant in Los Angeles, California

    The best thing is the ability to travel wherever you want in the world for virtually nothing.

  • Dec 12, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in San Francisco, California

    Flying around the world makes it worth it!

  • Nov 01, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Flight Attendant in Seattle, Washington State

    7% 401K matching, HSA, stock options

  • Oct 27, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Seattle, Washington State

    The best thing is the flight benefits. Health and retirement are average. PTO is above average.
