Hey we have DCA, CLT, PHL, PHX

and you necessarily do not have too.. but it's highly recommended because commuting is a nightmare in my opinion, especially not having any seniority. and we are hiring due to natural attrition.

Gonna be an FA soon in Milltown, New Jersey said: Thanks for the info Flight-Attendant9019! I had a f2f for USAir on April 5th of this year, but didn't make it all the way. Do you know if one has to wait 6 months, or a year to re-apply?

Hey! I got hired on April 5th! out of the first interview. and I think you do have to wait 6 months so definitely apply it wouldn't hurt.

She seemed to know that phi was the most junior base. Maybe the company just changed their hiring plans to a later date. Keep checking every day cause you never know when it might be listed!

As far as we understand, vacancy may be announced middle of October (that information was obtained from a newsletter available to US Airways flight attendants). Remember that things change quickly in flight attendant world, but as of now, the word on the street is that US Airways will be hiring soon for classes starting in January. No one is trying to play nasty tricks on anyone or intentionally provide false information. Keep checking usairways.com for hiring information. Recognize, however, that there is: 1) a rather contentious contract battle between the union and management; 2) a possible merger with American Airlines; and, 3) a rather volatile economy can change staffing plans from one day to the next. Part of playing and winning the flight attendant game is tremendous flexibility and recognizing that there are 3 sides to every story - the one you hear, the one you tell, and the truth. Try to avoid getting too discouraged with delays (especially information delays) - they'll become a part of your life as a flight attendant :)

I, for one, wasn't disappointed when I checked the site and didn't see the FA position posted. As you said, flexibility is the name of the game! All we should be doing is monitoring the USAirways website! Thanks for your post.

Yes I know what the waiting game in the aviation industry is all about. I am currently a FA based out of EWR. I just find it odd that not one of the US Airways friends were able to confirm Job postings for last weekend. All are saying mid Oct. reading back on the post on this page maybe its just me but I tend to speak to people just a little different then the way other may choose. My post before wasn't to hurt anyone. But remember I this is a open forum that anyone can come a post info weather its true or not. As we all can see with any Airline job just keep checking the website for yourselves. The good this is mid Oct is this weekend so maybe sooner then later a opening will be posted.

Hi! I am a college student graduating in December. I am VERY interested in a flight attendant position with US at PHX, as I will be moving there when I graduate. I have applied to other airline positions and have gotten no response. Any advice from someone more experienced in this area? Tips for ways I could get farther in the process? I have always wanted to be a flight attendant and I think US is a great fit. Any info or help would be greatly appreciated!!

It was released that we are hiring 480 flight attendants next year classes will start at the end of January. We will have 8 classes with the last 2 classes being PHX based so if you want the West ( I wouldn't recommended it ) then wait to apply for the West

Good Morning FA9019 & Tonya,
I know the East and West operations are completely separate but was wondering if FAs are able to transfer from an East base to the West base and vice-versa...or is that not possible at this time since the two FA groups have not been integrated? Merged may be a better term, but that's what we're calling it at my current airline... Bringing two airlines together is so crazy w/contract negotiations, etc. This kind of thing can take a bazillion years.

Oh, another question: Are East FAs able to jumpseat on West metal??
Thanks, I appreciate the insight.

*******UPDATE*******
I found the answer to the transfer question on the AFA Q & A board for the current TA.

I'd still like to know if all US Airways have JS privileges, regardless of whether it is an East/West airplane. Thanks!

Wow! 5 years on reserve?! I know US is pretty large but that seems like such a long time to not be able to hold a line with your seniority. Could you transfer to another base and hold a line or is PHL the most junior base?!

PHL is the most junior base and 5 yrs is nothing... I know flight attendants that have been here 15 years and finally just got a solid secondary line

Wow! Thanks for you response! Kinda scary to think that you could sit reserve for that long and not hold a line. Do they really need to hire that many new people if there are already so many just sitting and waiting?! Are a bunch of older F/A's retiring this year or something?!

We all thought oh people must be retiring.. YEA RIGHT! we are getting new A330's so the company thinks we need to hire new F/A's to service the new planes for a recrew (which barely happens ) and we are getting new 321's and that needs a additional F/A soooo unless they are not telling us something... you are going to sit just like we do now. but don't get me wrong... I love when I do fly. I love traveling and seeing the world. Just have to weight your options.
