Just curious to see how many Flight Attendant's on this site. Would like to ask questions of both union and non-unioned f/a's concerning wages and work rules.

I started as a Flight Attendant at Valujet Airlines in October, 1995. Now I'm an American Airlines Flight Attendant. Been at AA since '96 loving every bit of it.

Do you count retired F/A's in your questions? As others here know I stopped flying with PanAm's demise in 1991. Our rules were probably very similar to what you have to deal with today. You know, hair a certain way(especially when serving), certain shoes, skirts no shorter than a specified length, etc. I hope you continue to enjoy your chosen field and have a long and prosperous career with nothing but clear skies. Best of luck.

I started with Eagle in 1987 and made the cutover to AA in 1997. Like it here a lot. I feel the company is pretty secure, even post Sept 11th and 587. I think we have a way to go but in the long run we'll regain our past glories, LOL

Bonjour all...

Hi LML14/32, Yes, AF has 3 overseas cabin crew base. One in Tahiti, one in the French West Indies and finally one in Noumea that will close down in March 2003.
Air France has inherited the PPT and NOU base when they merged with UTA French Airlines.
AF employs 92 something cabin crew in Tahiti.

If you have anymore questions, please ask.

Happy Flying,

AF Cabin Crew.

Thanks everyone for the responses!

Mostly foreign carrier flight attendant's on this site. Do many of the foreign carrier's have flight attendant unions? Please share distinct work rules that you think are different from other carriers. For example, at AA we have rotating reserve and separate domestic/international divisions. I would also like to know the starting and top pay at your carrier. How is seniority determined in training?

I will be leaving on a 3day trip today. With layovers in MCO and DEN. If anybody is in those cities please contact me @ mbellfa@hotmail.com. Take care and fly safe!

I started in April 2001 as a United Airlines Flight Attendant, but then after 9/11, I was furloughed and got hired by Southwest thinking that UAL would be years before calling back. After just one month after I resigned from UAL to go to SWA, they called all of the Flight Attendants back to the line. Although I love my job at Southwest and I am very proud to be apart of the company, I miss United because they are the first airline that made my dream come true. Luckily I left on great terms with UAL and have a wonderful letter of recomendation from them, so one day I will return to "The Friendly Skies!"  Smile But for now, I'm LUVIN those LUVjets!  Smile

Hullo! I'm working through year 7 with Unitedout here by the Bay in SFO, hired on at the beginning of 1996. Although I enjoy complaining about United's 50+ year-seniority Flight Attendants who still manage to hang on with us, I love this crazy job so much I fully intend to become one of them! (That is, as long as this industry and my company intend to stick around!) The main reason I love this job, even more than the layovers in Hawaii and Sydney: my coworkers!!

AASTEW: thank you for starting off this post. I am happy to see how many European crew are following along, and I too would love to hear about their seniority issues, pay scales, and company/union gripes. ...I know there are other websites that specialize in F/A "gossip," but I still prefer to come home to airliners.net!

SWALUVFA: Get your tail back over here a.s.a.p.! I'm so sorry to hear you'd accepted the Southwest offer and turned down United one month before the massive recall. I do hope you continue to enjoy the LUVing experience, but don't build too much seniority over there that you consider staying away from us! There's a -400 main deck Business galley position just waiting for you to be juniored into it (tee hee)!! I hope to see you again in United Blue very very soon.

Cabin Crew from Europe: please post again soon!
