Interesting slideshow.

What I want to know, though...is how do we get from there, to here:

Brings back memories when I went through. Chances are I will see these f/a in EWR. Hope I will.

Glad to see more and more coming on line.

Great video.

I am one of the stars in that video = ) Training was awesome. The person who made this video sort of made it as a one year anniversary of our graduation. A major portion of it comes from a video that the training facility makes, but the person who made this added some photos and changed one of the songs. Glad people are enjoying it. EWRCabin Crew you will be seeing many of us because a majority of us got transferred to international!

From the looks of it on the video, Continental's safety training facility looks pretty spiffy, at least compared to United's facilities in Chicago and San Francisco. At United, we do not jump onto an inflated slide when we "evacuate" our airplane mock-up. We simply walk down one step during our evacuation! And during our overwater safety training, we do not inflate a raft in a swimming pool and then pull our fully-clothed selves into it. We carefully step up into a pre-inflated raft that's housed in our training building. Good for Continental training to go the extra step!

From what I saw on the Discovery Channel a while back, AA does it the same way. Maybe it's a Texas thing.  Smile

Do all FAs undergo First/Business Class meal service setups during training? or is this something only conducted for international FAs? It looks like they are practicing the Business First international meal service in the video.

Interesting. My airline's training (while I didn't go through the actual training, I was involved with developing the policies since our crew did both FAR and JAR-OPS complaint training when our fleet carried different registries) mandates that they must undergo all drills (inc. firefighting, CPR, wet drills, etc...) in FULL UNIFORM to most closely approximate live conditions. If you are fire-fighting, you must do it in makeup because you need to learn how to do it with runny mascara. If you are swimming, you need to do it wearing the same jacket and tie you will be wearing on the plane when it has to ditch. When you jump onto that slide, you need to do so with the flashlight on your belt and your ID lanyard swinging up to hit you in the nose. Granted, we are probably stricter than most due to the region being under heavy scrutiny for a perceived poor safety record, but some of what you are describing truly questions the value of the training.

Fly764,

how did the majority of you get transfered to international so fast? Good to see what trainings like.

Because of our increased international flying. Happens every summer. There will be the usual lull in Dec-Feb then back again in Spring.

Quoting Delta767 (Reply 13):

Yes, as a new hire can be international based from the get go.

Interesting.
More and more I think about becoming a F/A with either United or AA since I live in Chicago. I would like to see other countries and I am somewhat a people person. Plus I would like to walk the terminals in a spiffy uniform =))
Are most of the USA F/A training done with no pay for 6 weeks? I'm single and all but can a F/A make the cost of living in the first year of being an F/A. Is the position a decent paying job?? lol. Do first year F/A, well those on reserve get to even spend 2-3 days at home a week?

Maybe one day I will give it more thought. I want a degree first and finish school. But I'm not used to traveling all over the place just yet and I still have a slight fear of flying.

Good luck to anyone who becomes a F/A this year and so on. It looks like it can be a great job......well depending on what company you are with lol.

Quoting Tsaord (Reply 23):

Check out the airline's employment websites or their AFA websites for more information about your questions. Some have paid training, some do not. I think the average is about six weeks or so.

Remember too that most airlines will make you agree to relocate depending on where they need you. So just because both AA and UA have a big hub in ORD, they may decide they need you in IAD or SFO and relocate you to there instead.

And pay wise I think most of them now start around $19 an hour, with a guarantee of you working at least 70 hours a month. That's $15,960.00 per year.

Interesting that I should come across this thread, being that I just submitted my application online with CO Wednesday night. Reading the pay and benefits (which are a lot better that ZW, by the way) got me excited enough to put my name in the hat. I do hope I hear something one way or the other. From what I've read so far, I think CO would be quite an airline to work for.
