    StarStarStarStarStar Current Flight Attendant in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

    The good thing is that we are offered health insurance at all. The bad part is that the cost keeps going up and the benefits keep going down.

    The health insurance is great. Space-available flights and corporate discounts are great. The best thing is the building of the new campus.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Maintenance in Tulsa, Oklahoma

    We were promised D2 standby flight status as a retiree and after I retired it was changed to a D2R, this is a reduction in status and makes a HUGE difference. The new lower status is a slap in the face after all the years working there. If you are there for flight Benifits later in life go to another airline. Some of the commuter airlines have better benifits as they get benifits from multiple airlines.
