US Airways – Why Work For Us?

American is the first airline to fly the DC-3 in commercial service from New York to Chicago

On the morning of April 15, 1926, a young aviator named Charles A. Lindbergh stowed a bag of mail in his little DH-4 biplane and took off from Chicago for St. Louis. Later that day, he and two other pilots flew three plane loads of mail from St. Louis to Chicago. Lindbergh was chief pilot of Robertson Aircraft Corporation, the second aviation company to hold a U.S. airmail contract, and one of scores of companies that eventually consolidated to form the modern-day American Airlines. American Airlines is now one of the largest airlines in the world. We've also created more than 900,000 jobs worldwide and we welcome people like you who are excited to join our #AATeam. Explore the possibilities and discover why our employees are #proudtobeAA!

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


    A definite pro was being able to trade days off with other employees. I was able to string them together to take long periods of time off. Good benefits.


    Working in the inclement weather. Sometimes I wasn't able to get on a flight that I wanted too but, that didnt happen often. With good planning you can usually get to to where you want to go.
