Aren't most FAs cross trained on all aircraft types serving their base?
I believe Delta FAs are trained on all aircraft in the Delta fleet.
Can we confirm this? Not doubting, but just wanting some confirmation.
As a point of measure - what is/would be aircraft specific so much so that a FA would require certification?
Additionally, we've spoken some about the pilots affected by these massive changes. If FAs are not aircraft specific - how did/will the furloughs happen? Solely on seniority?
May G*d Bless those that took the voluntary packages. I mean, their voices are moderation in these sorts of discussions are lost, but I guess I have to thank those individuals for making such a huge sacrifice. Hopefully it is not in vain, and will help the carrier get back on its feet soon.
On another note - when demand does begin to grow again - due to their costs(lower operating costs, low crew costs, and decently priced aircraft to begin with), are we likely to see more A220s come on brand/back quickly? How does this move affect that move, in future?
