I have been working at Atlas Air Worldwide full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- Up to 2 weeks off a month
- Global route structure
- Competitive Pay
- Buisness class travel during international deadheads
- 4 to 5 Star accommodation during layovers
- Rumoured to have future growth
- Flexable Crew Scheduling/Travel department

Cons

- Aircraft Maintenance is contracted and not the best
- Long patterns (up to 17 days)
- Airline is dependant on contracts
- New B747-8 aircraft are part of a fleet renewal and NOT expansion program
- Catering is below standard (depending on station)

Advice to Management

Offer various rotations to meet individual needs, eg. 7 ON / 7 OFF, to accomadate crew members with young children. Being gone 17 days in a row can be hard on family life.
Equalization of Out-Base, the same crew members are out-basing every month. Spread the wealth!

    I have been working at Atlas Air Worldwide full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Challenging flying, with a lot of variety in destinations and mission-types. Nice aircraft. Top-notch leadership with a great business plan. Pilot Union and Management are superior to competing airlines. Gateway travel means that you can live where you want, and the company provides travel to begin your trip-whether it starts in your base airport or elsewhere.

    Cons

    Longer trip lengths (up to 17 days) can be a challenge for those who are not used to long-haul international flying. On the up-side, days off are in large blocks that allow weeks of free-time at home.
