Is anyone here an employee of Atlantic Southeast Airlines? I am invited to an open house for the position of flight attendant and am wondering if anyone can enlighten me on what to expect at this open house. Any information would be most appreciated. Thank-you.

I'm an employee but I'm a pilot, not sure I can help you much with the open house. I know I've heard from some of our FA's that simply be yourself and do a little research on the airline. That's about all the advice I can give, good luck to you!

Thank-you AV8AJET for that advice. I think you are right....just be yourself. Out of curiousity, do you fly the new 700 or the 200 CRJ. I have not flown one yet, but hear they are extremely quiet and comfortable. Also, is there a website that you can direct me to that would give a good company history about ASA? Thanks.

I currently fly the CRJ200 (40 & 50) seat versions. The 700 has some improvements over the -200 although talking to the FA's it's split which one they prefer. Some like the -200 because it's just "them," and others like the -700 because they like working with someone else and they like the extra size. Some pick either for schedules and many other reasons. The beauty of your job is that you'll work both and then you'll decide which one you like better. If you plan to be based in ATL then you'll also have the ATR to pick although I would wait until it gets cooler, that ATR gets mighty hot in the summer months!!! Here is a website that might help you out:

Thanks a million....I really appreciate you taking the time to help me out. One more thing. Do you think the chances are better to be based in ATL or DFW? I hope Atlanta, as I live here. Take care.

"they have 40 seat crj a/c? "

Yes we have CRJ200's that are configured in 40 seats. There is no row 1-2 and also no row 14 (we skip row 13). Externally they are hard to tell from the outside since they are the same fuselage as the 50 seater. The first and last window shades on the 40 seaters are always closed (due to closets installed).

"Do you think the chances are better to be based in ATL or DFW?"

Hard to tell although most pilots are sent to DFW initially I'm not sure about FA's. You'll hold a line faster in DFW (and better line seniority) although you have to ask yourself if the commute is worth it.

how do they go about booking a/c with 40, let's say compared to 50 seat a/c on flights. do certain cities only get the 40 seater, and some only the 50 seater. i am guessing this is because of a delta scope clause maybe? if not, help me out on the logistics between having 40/50 seat crj a/c? also, is there a lot more pitch on the 40 seater

Speaking for Comair....some cities don't really need the 10 extra seats and some cities might be more weight restriced than others (10 less seats and the pax baggage=more payload margin), for example. In MHT, Comair uses the 40 seaters to LGA, which is good, because it makes our loads look better (easier to fill). Cities like New Haven, CT (HVN) need the 40s due to their very short runway. Even with the extra margin, they are still unable to fill the aircraft to capacity on hot and humid days.

P.S. I am looking forward to ASA returning to MHT in September! I just wish it wasn't for one flight a day...

We generally use the 40's on "longer" flights like ATL-MTY or just other flights like DFW-IAH, ATL-CHO. Scope is an issue with these along with the cap on 70's. 40's are also slightly cheaper than the 50's. No extra pitch due to the PSU (passenger service units, O2 masks/reading lights/call buttons) would all have to be rearranged, so the pitch and legroom is the same except row 3 which has tons of legroom even with the additional closets.
