Corporate Flight Attendants

Fri Jul 26, 2002 10:06 am

Hello,

For those in and around YVR, YYJ etc., is anyone aware of companies that have a corporate flight department with flight attendants? It is a field I am very interested in. Feel free to email me directly at e.x@eudoramail.com

Thanking you in advance,

Marshall Bowman

Dear Marshall -
Pretty nice job, to be executive jet flight attendant...
xxx
I am an ex-PanAm pilot, after the bankruptcy I went overseas to continue my airline flying... a few of our flight attendants decided to become executive flight attendants, they love their job responsibilities and activities... I still maintain contact with them, they fly like these beautiful Gulfstream Jets...
xxx
How to get there for you... well, you better get yourself some "cabin crew training" somewhere, anywhere, any airline, maybe Vancouver or Seattle, anything to give you a good background if you have no experience...
xxx
The flight attendants I am acquainted with who do that, are fully responsible, besides their flight duties, of making arrangements for catering, cabin cleaning if not, hotel accommodations for the flights... this often, is worldwide... so you better brush-up on your world geography and basic language subjects...
xxx
Flight attendants do this either for a flight crew employment agency, or when applicable, remain employed with a specific company flight department... Pay and benefits are good... a lady I know told me she was paid US$250 per day when assigned to fly, she is gone sometimes 15 days a month, goes to Europe, stays in one place for one week doing nothing at the French Riviera, hotel accommodations (five star hotels) taken care of, by operator, even a phone call home, or a bar bill if you dont abuse of the privilege... the crew even gets a car they share...
xxx
If you are new in this activity, suggest you contact crewing agencies, it is unlikely that a corporate flight department will hire you without prior experience...
Best wishes to you

Hello Skipper,

Thank you for your response. I have worked for three different airlines in various cabin positions; Flight Attendant, Assistant Cabin Manager and In-flight Director. I am currently a catering manager and have extensive experience as a administrative assistant. I feel my skill base would certainly be fitting towards a position as a corporate flight attendant though the trouble is finding a company that is hiring. I have no problem being away for long periods, I used to be addicted to the 15 day pairings! I speak English, French and German, enjoy providing a top rate product and ensuring every detail of a trip is attended to. If you have any further information or contacts please let me know I am very interested in finding out more.

Again thank you Skipper for your response and I look forward to hearing from you again soon.


Sincere Regards,

Marshall Bowman

I know Http://www.flightoptions.com is hiring for Flight attendants in there Cleavland Domicile, but you don't have to re-locate. They want 5 years experience.


Thought I'd share.

You will find that once hired by a (large) corporate operator as a F/A, that THE most important aspect of your job is "aeroplane and passenger security" and will be sent for training accordingly.

Dear Marshall -
If you are Canadian that does not prevent you from working on a US aircraft, as a crewmember on - international flights - no aviation regulation prevents you from that in the US, nor can you be considered working "in the US" when assigned on an international flight... US crewmembers working a flight to Canada are not "working in Canada"... when I was with PanAm we had numerous foreign flight attendants, we needed them for language reasons... they flew into the US constantly but were restricted from operating on any "domestic flights"... we could not use them on US military flights either...
Sometimes on flights from Europe, half of the cabin crew were European based (and multilingual) flight attendants, outstanding people shall I say...

B747Skipper,

I understand completely I have encountered this in much of my airline experience. However, the issue arises when it is necessary to be BASED in the United States ie. green card. As some of the posts have mentioned there are positions available in Atlanta & Cleveland and commuting is unfortunately not an option (cost of tickets would out-weigh my wage). Unless a company is willing to sponsor me it would be unlikely I could accept employment in the US although as I mentioned it never hurts to apply.

Thanking you again for all your help everyone keep it coming!

Dear Marshall -
I can maybe point you to the right direction... I am not an expert in corporate aviation, but two companies come to my mind, that are "international"...
One is "Jet Aviation", I think their head office is in Zurich...
The other is "TAG Aviation", headquartered in Geneva, I think...
They are companies that manage private jets owned by corporations, or individual millionaire's flying palaces... from minuscule Citations to big Boeings. They provide management, maintenance and crews for these airplanes...
These airplanes are constantly all over the world, many in the United States, and probably Canada... crew are dedicated to a specific airplane within their organization... obsviously, your home would be your "base", the "green card" does not apply if they send you to SFO from YVR to be part of the crew of a Boeing 727 owned by a Saudi sheikh... I dont know the way these people work but they are quite flexible and I know they have crews and planes all over the world... your "base" may become Malaga, an island of the Carribean, or Punta del Este in Uruguay... and you would be provided with an occasional free passage back home to YVR... I know the salaries are "top" with these companies, and the owners of the airplanes provide five star hotels for their crews... a wealthy oil skeikh does not deal with low life's Holiday Inns...
Try to locate the phone/fax/internet for "Jet Aviation" and "TAG Aviation" through their offices in USA... If I recall well one of them is located at TEB (Teterboro, NJ)... Good luck, prepare your bags and passport with extra pages...  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
