    I have been working at American Airlines full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Travel is number one, the lifelong friendships from training class and the random crew members that I get to fly with are wonderful. The passengers for the most part at least for me have been great. It's rewarding when you can make them comfortable at 35,000 ft. They show their appreciation and their thanks as they exit the aircraft. Some even leave goodies such as chocolates!

    Cons

    Commuting is sometimes an issue. During certain times it's very hard to get on a flight to report to work. The long hours and living out of your suitcase for days on end can be challenging. It's a lifestyle and you have to get used to it. Training isn't long enough. There needs to be more hands on before going onto a real aircraft.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with the employees. There are so many things I see on a daily basis that could use some input from us flight attendants that could make our job run smoother from take off to landing. In the end it could improve our overall performance as a whole. Team work makes the dream work as they say!
