    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great flight benefits and health insurance as well as stock plans and company matching 401K.

    Cons

    New CEO and management are mainly concerned about the bottom line and this has changed the culture/morale at the company as a whole.You have to work a-lot to make a good amount of money and for years to have seniority. Sometimes working with hundreds of passengers a day and on your feet all day, can be exhausting mentally and physically. Getting stranded on a layover sick is rough because there’s not a plan in place to care for you while you are out sick on a layover on your own. You either have to depend on other FAs to get you food or medicine or you can Uber eats, but it’s still something the company would be wise to have a better protocol for.

    Among the lowest paid of the mainline airlines

    Nov 2, 2022 - Flight Attendant in Seattle, WA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Training hotel accommodations, training center transportation, a small daily meal per diem, and uniforms/suitcase provided free of charge.

    Cons

    Very compressed, short and brutal daily training classes hours, i.e. 0530am-230pm or 3pm-midnight daily classes, six days a week. Just the very basic FAA mandated safety training curriculum taught, NO equally important service training, NO important crew scheduling training, NO computer schedule bidding training. Graduation was more lectures, quick power points to study and learn, handed your wings, a few pictures, and back to the hotel to pack up and you are immediately assigned ready reserve assignment, with trip assignments the very next day! Good luck finding any place to stay or live in one of six of the most expensive West Coast crew base cities! And remember, you will not see your first tiny paycheck until the once a month 20th payday. You better have lots of savings! Or generous families.
