I am a resident of Michigan, and been interested in getting a job with an airline, be it FA, ramp, counter, or whatever. I am having a hard time figuring out which airline(s) to try to apply to, as there are limitations and they differ somewhat between carriers. I know NW is an obvious choice, as they have the DTW hub, but I would consider others, even if it meant re-locating, although I would rather stay in Michigan. Does anybody know which airline is a good one to get started with? Which gives better opportunities and things of the like? Any info would be much appreciated!

Chris

Apply to them all. The one you want to work with may not even give you a look in.

Send it to as many as possible, if you get an interview, good, do it for all of them, and If you get offered a job at more than one, then pick the one you would like to work with most.

You cant just say, I'll work with NW, because they may not want you!

I'm in the same situation, but have worked for three airlines already..AA, WN, and DL. And have decided to live in MI. I must say, the airline opportunities are much more scarce, than say in a major city like DTW, CHI, ATL, DFW, etc. Make certain to create a resume and send it to all airlines that are in areas in which you're willing to reside, trust me, it's not worth moving to a city you don't like for a job...you'll start hating your job, too! I'm in AZO area and the airport is dinky...so I'm not certain what, if anything is offered there.

I am actually in the FNT- Flint Bishop area, and not too far away from DTW. I would not mind relocating to Atlanta or the Tampa area, or even OKC or DFW. I just want to work for an airline. It's all I've wanted to do since I graduated high school.

Make certain to put that you're willing to relocate. I lived in ATL and DFW...I had to get out of ATL..don't get me wrong, it's a great city, but for me: only to visit. The cost of living is much more expensive in ATL than even in DFW. I was there for 2 years and still didn't have enough seniority to get back home...even after an offer to go back that turned out to be a mistake (and I gave up my apt. and had to move!), I just resigned. I loved the company, but the environment in ATL made me feel like I was working for a different company than I had at home in DFW. Some airlines have cut on hiring right now, because of a "slowing economy." Be patient, don't give up and be willing to work for "second best" just to get a foot in the door!  Laugh out loud

I really don't care which airline I get a job with, it could be NW, DL, AA, UA, Spirit, Airtran, whatever. I just want to get my foot in the door. As for DFW, my Dad's business partner has a branch there, and I start out living there till I get a place, ATL- Airtran flies to anywhere I'd go- FNT, DFW, or TPA. TPA- I have relatives in Clearwater, Palm Harbor, and Dunedin, so I would have support there too..


Any Airline employee/recruiter who could offer advice, I would appreciate that too...
