Flight Attendant Benefits are very good and will be some things to factor into a job as a flight attendant.
There are great benefits to becoming a flight attendant. One of the biggest reasons that people become or dream about becoming flight attendants are the flight benefits.
Flight benefits differ from airline to airline. Where one airline might not charge a penny to fly standby on the flights, another may charge $10, $20, or even $30 per flight or trip. Still not a bad deal, but flight loads are not always the greatest which makes nonrevenue sometimes not worth it. But never the less, the flight benefits are always great to have. You can also enjoy the benefits of flying cheap on other airlines. Most airlines will sell standby tickets to other airline employees any where from 75-95% off the regular full fare ticket price. This is great when your airline doesn't go to a place you need or want to travel to.
Other flight attendant benefits include but not limited to:
- 10-20 days off a month (based on seniority)
- Family and fiends travel benefits
- Discount on hotels, cars, and sometimes cruise
- Health benefits
- Employee stock option (depends on airline)
- Credit Union
