Hello.
I am a new Flight Attendant for C5, and I just noticed that Jetblue has openings. I love C5 but don't get many hours per week (19.5), and according to b6's website it says "Full Time". Does this mean a full 40 hour Flight Attendant job? I thought all FA jobs were part-time due to crew rest.
Thanks!

I'm sure starting off you'd be on Reserve... which mean limited and wacky hours

Yeah, I'm sure B6 pays it's flight attendants about as well as it's pilots which is below industry standard.

Sidequestion. Do flight attendants have regulatory hours like the pilots or are they set by company rules/ union contracts?

No. 85 a month is probably standardish. Many will be very happy to let you pick up more (I've seen loonatics with 120). Don't know how it works with F/As, but with pilots B6 pays overtime for any hours over 75 that you work (allowing them to get more from each employee, so that they can spend less in health care and training).

Loonatics....?? I've already do that several times this year every two weeks working maintenance. Pretty much the average.

That's 120 paid flight hours. If you include the duty days, and overnight periods it come out to a lot of flying for that person. It is a pretty tough schedule to maintain.



Nice Trip Report!!! Great Pics, thanks for posting!!!! B747Forever

yeah... EMBQA, you often have very good info on technical subjects, but a lot of your airline ops related replies...


My June sched for intsance (which is pretty abnormaly crappy) is for about 90 credit hours (only 86 actual block). It has 18 day of work and 12 days off with a total of 333 hours away from base. If you you add a 3rd to that (as an F/A would have to to hit 120), you get 24 days of work, 6 days off, 444 hours away from base, and most probably about 180-200 hours of actaul duty time. No thanks.

I've averaged a 70 hour work week the last few months....I've worked for an airline and I know flight crew work hours and actual hours are different....but not even close to what maintenance put in. I've done weeks and month without coming home, so I do understand. Back in 1998-199 I was on a project that had me away from home all but a few weeks.
