Sep 4th 2010 12:08PM Regional FAs make significantly less than Mainline U.S. based carriers, or salaried overseas based crew. My income after my first year- 13,000. Being new I was on reserve for the first two years, had no control over my schedule, and I was unable to work more even if I wanted to! Being on call twenty days a month could result in 120 hours of flying during the summer or only 30 during the fall/after the holidays. And we were pretty much guaranteed no weekends off. Why does one do it? The benefits, escaping a 9-5 office job, the fact that it doesn't really feel like work. Its fun/good conversations/interesting places/crazy situations/great stories. Its travel!
Dec 29th 2009 4:14AM In this day and age a flight attendant monitoring the cabin for safety and security should be thanked and not yelled at. The likelihood of running into a bad person, not a person who doesn't want to turn off their phone or buckle their seatbelt, is seemingly increasingly common. As the threat of terrorism increases on flights so should our appreciation of the carefully trained eyes that have watched thousands board/deboard and want nothing more than what we want...to safely arrive at our destination. To think yourself exempt from these policies is to compromise the integrity of the flight. Whether it be because you are missing your connection or because you have a stomach ache and don't want to buckle your seat belt...turn your computer off, its reflecting on the ceiling, and buckle your seat belt loosely around your waist, the rest of us want to get going.
