Pros
Cons
  • Most were not former flight attendants, so they're not empathetic or knowledgeable about the challenges or issues you may encounter (in 11 reviews)

  • Because we do a lot of military transport, your time away from home is like being in the military all over again for me because it's based on demand (in 6 reviews)

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

    Pros

    Lots of international travel. Smaller company adds a close, family feel to working with your coworkers. You can get excellent trips regardless of seniority.

    Cons

    You can be gone up to 19 days straight or more each month sometimes. Pay is similar to a regional flight attendant.

    I worked at Omni Air full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The flight benefits were good. Flying to other countries and experiencing other cultures,and their way of life was phenomenal! Meeting new people is always a plus.

    Cons

    I wish I would have taken heed to the bad reviews about this company. The management promotes people who should not be promoted. Management is not understanding, and is quick to suspend/ and or fire you. Some Lead Flight Attendants will right you up over silly things, AND tattle tale to corporate about you.
      This company will fly other flight attendants from OUT OF STATE to work a flight instead of giving the flight to a LOCAL flight attendant who was sitting reserve the whole month.
      Working for a charter airline is terrible, and I regret giving this company a chance.

    Advice to Management

    Overhaul SOME of your inflight supervisors and lead flight attendants. Maybe you wouldn't have such a high turnover rate.

    I worked at Omni Air full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get to travel the world. If you work on your off days the money is great. If you don't it's not enough to live on.

    Cons

    People that work there are so caty. And will rat you out for anything to see you get fired. Senority is everything there, for example if you have a trip booked and someone with higher senority decides they want to take it they can call scheduling and get you kicked out of that trip. There should be a time limit before the trip for them to able to do that. Goes back to girls being so caty.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so quick to fire people.
    P.s i wasn't fired. I quit because i couldn't stand it.

    I worked at Omni Air full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The ability to work alone.

    Cons

    Changing sleep schedule multiple times throughout the week to keep up with flight schedule
    Flight schedule changes constantly
    Salary is low for the responsibilities and headaches one has to deal with
    Management doesn't listen, or seem to care about the needs of the station when it comes to equipment needs

    Advice to Management

    Maybe increase salary $5,000-$6,000 a year, listen to employees when he/she has suggestions on needed equipment. Hire 1-2 more people to keep morale high, and make the work/life balance easier.

    Pros

    Great job for anyone who doesn't have kids, pets, significant other, or a lot of bills to pay. Traveling the world and being able to go to places not everyone can go to is pretty awesome and you'll make great friends. Great experience. The passengers are always awesome too.

    Cons

    High turnover rate. Not enough pay for the work you do. Not everyone is your friend and its a shame you have to remember that. When busy, the company will use and abuse you. Management expects you to adhere to company policy and FARs when they sometimes don't adhere to them themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the loyalty of the employees you already have to create more unity and peace.

    Keep your flight attendants busy!

    Pros

    Enjoy the diversity and variety of international traveling. The opportunity of really experiencing different cultures up close and sometimes personal level. I am fortunate to serve the military and the civilian side or commercial side flying. I love it!!

    Cons

    Gone a minimum of 19 days a month doesn't afford you to really have a normal life. Because we do a lot of military transport, your time away from home is like being in the military all over again for me because it's based on demand.
