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.

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).
