Flight Attendant Hiring Thread


Well-Known Member
Spirit was hiring, I don't know if they still are. Cathay Pacific is accepting applications but not currently hiring for SFO and LAX based American flight attendants.

According to Indeed.com (which is a great resource for job-hunting and forums), Pinnacle is hiring as well.

I noticed on the SkyWest website, they only hire applicants who attend their job fair. Is this common for regional airlines? I'm unable to attend the career fairs, and I'm just wondering if airlines regularly call back external applicants not located in a base city.


All the responsibility none of the authority
I think Atlas is hiring FAs still for the 2 VIP 747-400s to fly IAH-Angola. Living in IAH is a plus.

That is the entire extent of my knowledge.



Hi everyone! I've found this thread/section very interesting. any updates on airlines that are hiring? Im fluent in Spanish.

Check out the links in the posts above, and see if they're still open!

Being bi-lingual is usually a huge asset, and something to be sure to note on your app!

USAirways is hiring. From what I understand, classes start sometime this spring once the recall list has been exhausted. Bases will be CLT, DCA, or PHL, I believe.
