Of course, NW FA
pay isn't as good as it used to be, but it still certainly trumps anything the regionals are offering by a wide margin.
If it were my choice, I would definately choose MEM
for my home base. The cost of living there is quite reasonable, and it is really underrated as a nice place to live. Memphis has been rated one of America's most livable cities. It should also be reasonably easy to non-rev out of there, as opposed to DTW or espescially BOS.
If being a flight attendant is your dream, you could always continue to look for "better" oppourtunities elsewhere during your tenure at NW
. However, I think you could do much worse than being a NW FA
based out of MEM
Congratulations on the offer. If you decide to take it up, I look forward to possibly having the honor to be served by you on one of my many NW
flight segments each year.
