FACC Webinar Recap 12/11/13

12/11/13 Webinar Notes

We had a great time talking, learning and answering questions during this month’s Flight Attendant Career Connection webinar.  But if you missed it, don’t worry here are a few of the things I covered.


I offer one on one flight attendant career coaching and I’m running a Christmas special: two coaching sessions and my eBook Looking Skyward for $45. Click here for more info.


Yes, American Airlines and US Airways have officially merged.  From the outside they look like they are one airline, but they are not operating as one airline quite yet.  For two airlines to operate as one they have to come together, establish new policy and procedures, operation and evacuation techniques, and the unions must sign off on new work rules, pay scales and a whole lot of other corporate stuff. So….it can take a while.  Our inside information says American and USAirways have been working together for a while to get make these changes and they will be flying together soon.

That being said, both American and USAirways are hiring flight attendants.  Go and apply with both.  Don’t count USAirways out just yet.

Apply, Apply, Apply:

We already covered why you should apply with both American and USAirways.  And Delta is hiring, too.  But where else?  Most of the regional airlines are hiring flight attendants right now.  These airlines are usually not household names and they operate as express carriers (USAirway Express, Delta Connections).  To find these airlines, go to the mainline website (Delta, American, Usairways, United) and search, within the site for express carriers.  You should be provided with a list of regional carriers.  Visit each airline’s website and apply if they are hiring.  The more hooks you have in the water, the greater your chances of catching a fish.

*****Breaking News 12/13/2013*****

PSA airlines just announced a purchase order for NEW PLANES.  They are planning on hiring 400 flight attendants.  They are a wholly owned subsidiary of USAirways which means their employees are USAirways employees and can fly for free anywhere USAirways flies!  What are you waiting for?????

We had a great time talking about the flight attendant world and answering questions.  I’ll host another webinar in January.  Make sure you sign up for the email list so you don’t miss anything.

Green Laser Pointed at Pilots During Landing

One of the first things you will learn in flight attendant training is the critical phases of flight. The critical phases of flight are taxi, take off and landing. These critical phases require total concentration from the pilots. So much concentration that they are not even allowed to talk to each other about anything that is not flight related while they are landing an airplane. For someone to think this is just a silly prank is outrageous!
