Don't know if it's the right forum. I'm looking to change careers and want to contemplate fulfilling my dream: becoming a flight attendant. Are any airlines looking for flight attendants?

Mesa is also but I would steer you away from them because their work rules are not so nice to politically correct.

Most regionals are hiring. Make sure you don't go into it thinking that the job is glamorous especially if you work for a regional. Its low pay, long hours, hard work, and lots of responsibility. You really have to be the right kind of person to be an F/A.


My opinions, statements, etc. are my own and do not have any association with those of any employer.

Last I heard Etihad is hiring as well, albeit at a much more reduced pace (they apparently canceled many open days, but retained a few), though if you are US based I'm not sure if they have any open days coming up out there. You can check it out on their website.

If you are looking for more of a global reach rather than working for a regional American carrier, then Etihad is a good place for you to go - they do require previous customer service experience though. Not to mention you'd hold a rating on either the A320/A330/A345/A346 or the B77W right away! You'd be based in Abu Dhabi however, so you'd need to make a big move.

From what I know from friends and gossip around the sand pit, I would steer clear of Qatar Airways and go for Etihad if you were to apply for any of the Gulf airlines. Emirates has stopped cabin crew recruitment till at least the fall, though probably will be extended till year's end.

That said, I'd really do my research before making any move to join any of the Gulf carriers, it might not be a good fit for some - we get good allowances and benefits but also work under different working conditions (no union, etc) and also work in a really different cabin culture, with crew from 100+ countries and some really hard destinations to work (though that's balanced with some really really nice ones as well). I made the move a bit back and am loving it to bits, though I've heard some who aren't that thrilled about being here, so do your research.

PM me if you have any more questions, I'd be happy to help, and good luck in your search!

JetBlue was just hiring for a May training group. I had an interview with them in NY back in March but I wasn't able to go because of my current job Sad

Not sure if they're still hiring, but it might be worth a shot. JetBlue is a fantastic airline to work for.

Cheers,
Andres



Prepare for take-off.

Don't think so..... I looked at their open jobs and they only have A&P spots open.

I know Miami Air is hiring type rates pilots and IIRC they did have an few FA spots as well. I would suggest them, if they are still hiring FAs, since they do some fun flying.

In my personal experience avoid Mesa Airlines at any and all costs! They are an awful airline to work for and you may work a number of months before you see your first flight. I honestly don't know how Mesa is still in business because their company is awful. Their employees have no clue what they are doing and they hire some of the most incompetent people you have ever seen!

Here are some opinions on Mesa: http://twurl.in/?Jq3cp (read the articles on mesa) BAD STORIES!

Here are a few other sites:

http://twurl.in/?Ny04g
http://twurl.in/?ga63i
http://twurl.in/?mdoKh
http://twurl.in/?rd2FF
http://twurl.in/?aUuOR

Those are just a few sites I found that are hiring FA's. I highly recommend any regional airline.

Your language skills and your service readiness will be key parameters.
Except for maybe regional american carriers, a carrier who goes abroard may require at least 1 of not 2 languages except english. At least one should be fluent. Spanish may be the closest to american citizen. Without that you may be stucked with regional american carriers and I doubt that they are a pleasure to work for. It depends on what you want to.

Better you tell us what type you are and whats your passion for beeing a FA compared to e.g salese staff in a car dealership. or waitress in a restaurant.

Are interviews held in ATL? If so, does Air Tran provide transportation to the interview? Or do you have to buy a ticket?
