      I have been working at Norwegian Air Shuttle full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      You get to fly internationally from the beginning

      Cons

      Health insurance is 166 per month, the rostering system is terrible, OCC is horrible you have to call them all the time to fix things on your roster in addition to them sending you wherever they see fit, no control of schedule, no jump seat agreement Calls made from cell phone abroad are not covered and one does this all the time Hotels suck, they practically us in the middle of no where by airports usually far from...

      I have been working at Norwegian Air Shuttle full-time

      Pros

      Great destinations and the travel benefits.

      Cons

      The biggest con is being a third party employee. No 401K benefits, expensive medical insurance and no travel benefits on other airlines. The second biggest con is the pay. The max you will make is 40K a year.

      Current Employee - 787 Flight Attendant in Fort Lauderdale, FL
      Doesn't Recommend
      Negative Outlook

      I have been working at Norwegian Air Shuttle full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      1. A majority of the cabin crew and flight crew members are a pleasure to work with. 2. Long enough layovers to see the sights in some cities. 3. If you are offered to fly on a day off you are compensated well.

      Cons

      Working for OSM Aviation / Norwegian Air Shuttle as a long haul 787 flight attendant will drain the life out of you, put you in a dire financial situation and overwhelm you with stress. If you take a job as a long haul 787 flight attendant with these companies understand you will be employed by the human resources company OSM Aviation and contracted to Norwegian Air Shuttle. Do your research on both companies. Here...

      Advice to Management

      1. Value your employees, don't degrade and wear them down. 2. Stop interfering with, restraining, and retaliating against your crew members for unionization and provide a positive attitude and effort toward getting at least an industry standard contract. 3. Fix all the cons listed above. 4. Take suggestions from the employees actually working on the planes and implement those that work. 5. Be consistent with policies...
