      Pros

      Smaller major airline so reserve life isn’t forever, unlike at some really big airlines you’ll be on reserve forever. Tons of bases across the states to choose from. Pay increase every year. The free flying as an employee and buddy passes for family and friends. Discounts to several places for being airline crew and the list goes on.

      Cons

      Sometimes management can be tricky.

      Pros

      Contract is fairly new so the starting pay is good. Frontier has a union that will help protect flight attendants and their rights in the contract.

      Cons

      The ground crew is extremely short staffed right now and it plays a big role in the number of delays. That part can be extremely frustrating.

      I wouldn’t trade this job for anything

      Pros

      -Flight Attendant union that protests our rights, our rest, settle our grievances and just landed us a new contract. - New Contract raised starting pay to 23.56 per flight hour and by the year 2022 the starting pay will be 25.50 per flight hour. - The ability to pick up trips outside of your assigned base(even as a reserve on your days off) -The ability to work as few as 50 hours a month once you get a line* -6 months maternity leave. - A rapidly growing main line airline that is hiring steadily and quickly, boosting your seniority by almost 80-100 Flight Attendants a month just about EVERY MONTH. -Flight Benefits with most US carriers that allow you to fly stand by on virtually every airline. -International flight benefits with a plethora of Airlines that kick in at 6 months. -No limits to the amount of time you must be with the company to switch bases. No limit to how frequently you can change bases. - Relatively easy job during normal day to day operations. All you have to do is communicate with your crew, do the duties required by your position on that day and be alert about things happening with passengers or the aircraft. -Nice hotels at the layovers and very strict test rules laid out in our contracts about how many hours we can work and how many days we can work in a row. -Extremely easy to manipulate your schedule to get specific days off. -Easy to pick trips up out of base on days off. - A smaller airline with most fellow flight attendants being very kind, cordial, and willing to help and explain things to you if you need it. This also means that you get to build friendships other with flight attendants and pilots because you will often fly with the same person every few months depending on the size of your base.

      Cons

      - Training is VERY quick paced and 95% is emergency, do-or-die, worst-case-scenario focused. By the time you graduate and get onto your first working trip you won’t know little things like which carts go where and where to find extra trash bags. They focus so much on feeding emergency knowledge that everything else has to be picked up while you work, which can be daunting for you first few flights depending on the routes. -As a flight attendant in Vegas you will not fly very much at all on your reserve days . They’ll use you a lot the first month or two but once new hires come in (every other week) you’re just sitting around bored or sitting airport standby for a majority of the month .

      Pros

      Free travel. Flexible schedule. Job is easy most of the time. You work with the public. As a low cost carrier we connect a lot of families. Amazing co-workers.

      Cons

      The low cost culture can make you feel like the company doesn't support you. You work with the public. As a low cost carrier we deal with less experienced passengers.
