Aircraft Manufactures Flight Attendants

Wed Mar 07, 2012 12:24 am

Do aircraft manufactures such as Airbus and Boeing hire outside their companies for the Flight Attendants that work on their aircraft when they fly them around for potential customers?

I think Boeing hires some for media flights, like their long way SIN-LHR flight on the 77L a few years back but they aren't Boeing employees but rather from a flight attendant staffing firm that primarily provides flight attendants for business jet users.
Why do Aerospace Engineering students have to turn things in on time?

I've only ever seen contract flight attendants used for that purpose; there are several companies that do this (primarily to serve corporate/biz jets).
