If I can be pilot/fa, I'd fly for United for their extensive Asian network and modern fleet. If I were to get into management ranks, TWA because I want to bask in the glory when that Karabu deal expires and company turns a profit. (hopefully )

AirNZ, Flight attendant or Qantas.
AirNZ as they fly to my hometown and are a fast growing well known and competitive airline. I think it will be a very sucessful airline when they get back into Korea. they made big profits from that route before the Asian Crisis.

With American Airlines, I would rather be a flight attendant / pilot and, I will always have best customer service for my passengers at all times. If I became a AA Pilot, I will fly mostly international routes like London, Brussels, Zurich, Frankfurt, etc.... It fun to fly with an EAGLE.

I'm waiting for a CSA position at AA, and currently they are non-union. In the airline industry, being in a union is kinda half half with me. Right now, I currently work in ATA's charter department and 1/2 of our agents are union and 1/2 aren't (I'm a non-union) and I find it to be MUCH more flexible and company-worker friendly. On the other hand our union office is very "follow the rules" and stay at your desk. They are all really great people don't get me wrong, and we do understand they their jobs are secure, ours aren't.
Anyway.. When I had turned 18- I applied at CO, NW, NK, SY, AA, of those, landed NW & AA, then ATA was right in the paper and got that job within a week.
I always wanted to work for Northwest @ DTW, it was a dream- but when I got the call back in May- I didn't pursue it like I thought I would.
With AA (after I got the job with ATA), I went to ORD for a medical, and I've been on a waiting list with no date-of-hire (meaning--- it's going to take a while). Besides that, DL is hiring so I may apply. I'm not really to concerned about AA, that day will come and I'm in a spot now where I can wait.
Just a tip from experience for those looking for entry-level jobs.. Search, Search, Search & Apply to everyone.. DONT forget about your local paper!! That's how I got my job with ATA.
