    The most important benefit for me is the ability to travel standby to AA destinations and on other airlines. This benefit is unmatched but any other job, in my opinion.

    The benefits were outstanding! They offered unlimited flight benefits for myself and family. If the flight wasn't totally free, it was highly discounted. Full health, life, and dental insurance was provided as well. An excellent 401k plan was also provided. The greatest benefit was the ability to advance in the company!!
