paris in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania said: This question is for PILOT- what do you think the maxium age would be for a woman to apply for FA ????

WE AT AMR HAVE VERY STRICT RULES WHEN IT COMES TO DIVERSITY AND EOE STANDARDS! AS LONG AS YOU CAN PERFORM ALL DUTIES WITHOUT RESTRICTIONS AGE SHOULD NOT BE A PROBLEM! ALSO, EXPECT TO SPEND ABOUT A WEEK OF TRAINING ON SEXUAL HARRASEMENT. THE INDUSTRY IS BEING JOINED IS BECOMING MORE DIVERSE WHEN IT COMES TO MALE/FEMALE RATIO, AND THE COMPANY WANTS TO AVOID LAWSUITS! GOOD LUCK, NOT MATTER YOUR AGE, AGAIN AS LONG AS YOU CAN DO THE JOB! I AM THINKING OF STARTING A FACEBOOK PAGE, SO WE CAN HELP EACH OTHER OUT WHEN TRAINING TIME COMES! I LET YOU ALL KNOW WHEN I DO! I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THERE IS ONE ALREADY!

If anyone wants to know about american or eagle let me know, I would be more then welcome to help you out to assit you with the hiring process or standards that they have. I have been a employee of AA in the past and know the process and for eagle as well. So guys stick together. Let me say this, it all starts here and make friends help one another, help each other in traning and god knows you could be workng the same a/c on eagle or American! I will not tolerate any negative energy from anyone against other cause
I like to help people and isn't that what the f/a position is all about. I think if you
can not help each other here how in the world you going to help a fellow crew memeber or passenger for assistance. I am not trying to be the hule of the hound, but trying to keep this simple and easy, to the point. I have been a flight attendant for many years and would help each and everyone of you, to succeed in the process, training and on line ( meaning a schedule flight attendant with a schedule) to succeed and be professional. I know it is tiresome, but worth it for the wait, I have waited as well along with most of you. Be there for each other and things will go well for all of you..let me know If I can help you at jarehead1264@aol.com. no question is stupid and yes I use to be a instructor, so please contact me wth your comments r concern. rh

We understand All that but I think what rubbed people the wrong way is her authoritative approach about it, were she didnt seem to be asking nicely and instead was telling people to STOP (in capital letters) using lingo. Im just saying, ask nicely and you will receive nicely as well.

I am Lutheran, but also more spiritual than anything else. :) You sound like an awesome person, and I believe AA would be proud to have you as a FA. Heres to hoping that we both obtain our dreams, and maybe work a flight together!! Best wishes, and stay in touch!!

All the very best for you, too, WannaFly!

ORD is a junior base. DFW, LAX, MIA, and I believe Boston are the big bases.

Excuse me, but with all do respect, I did ask nicely the very first time, and people continue to not have consideration for others who are new to the field. How would all the veteran FA's feel if they were new to the career trying to join in the conversation and can't understand a word people are talking about when they're abbreviating and even though you're trying to learn, and have others telling you to look it up? So much for helping each other out. And no, I was not being authoritative, just frustrated.

No we don't have PBS yet. at both AA and AE we still use the old bid packets with lines built by CS. AMR wants pbs because its more cost effective. You wont be able to bid into any conflicts as pbs will build around all training vacation, 7 day ect.

ORD is currently pretty senior!! MIA is still pretty junior though and so is JFK. But there has not been hiring in many years. If the Nationals were let go MIA would be much bigger tho........

HI,

To be honest, I dont understand some of the
terms either, but I try to read between the lines or if you follow the forum long enough some things get "translated" eventually in fact a couple of entries above somebody talked a little more about the type of scheduling system "PBS" is.

So, trust me, it all reveals itself, we just have to be
a little patient and "go with the flow".

(Plus in 8 1/2 weeks of training, you will learn all
this stuff).

Best of luck.

since chicago is pretty senior does that mean any of those attendants took the buyout and maybe they will place new hires at ord?

@Thejazzygirl- NY is one of AA's best bases IMO :) They have some Europe, transcons etc

@italiangirl- you never know really, but, ORD is a pretty big base for AA so you will eventually be able to get there or do a mutual transfer- just not sure if you will get it right out of training.

As for Speakers, I recall a few years back all the Spanish speakers were getting DFW- when the ones I knew all wanted MIA... They did eventually get to MIA though

GoodBye - Can you tell us if lga/jfk are covered by the same base or flight attendant group? From what I understand, JFK is more intl, and lga, more domestic flights. I've heard that new hires will fly mainly domestic, and I assumed more lga than JFK. Thanks a lot. Also, is EWR included in the NY base assignment?

The way AA currently has it set up is if you are an international FA in NY- JFK is your base and if you are domestic LGA is your base. BUT, even if you are technically LGA based you still fly out of JFK if that makes sense. And JFK seldom flies out of LGA. Once they complete the merging of international and domestic the AA base labels won’t matter though. Hope this helps.

Why are you cussing at someone who isn't cussing at you? Maybe you should try showing the kind of respect that you're demanding from everyone else.

When I first started reading here I didn't know what anything meant, either, and--yeah--it was frustrating. But instead of ordering complete strangers to change an INDUSTRY WIDE way of communicating I took matters into my own hands. If I didn't know what ORD meant, I googled it. Done. It's really simple.

Thanx Goodbye!! Though , uhoh, I hope I don't get offered DFW as I'm a Spanish speaker. Eek!

But, whatever, it's one step at a time. First things first. Apply tomorrow!!

Can't wait. :)

***WARNING*** I want EVERYONE to remember that American will have access to this forum and they are probably monitoring it as we speak. It wouldn't be hard for a huge company like American to be able to connect the dots back to who says what on this forum. Just be careful about what you say and how you say it. Hope everyone has their resumes in order and are ready for the big day tomorrow. Remain positive and good luck to all!

You can always apply on your phone. It's rather tedious and you'll have to manually fill out information from your resume. But it is another option if you can't get access to a computer. I'm sorry about your situation. I'm sure things will work out soon. They always seem to. Good luck!

To FA4ever,
Thank You for your kind words of encouraging team work.

It should be welcome of everyone else just when posting to be more specific with the language in order to help those who are new to this industry. it should nicely done instead of telling others what to do or how to look up things on google. When reading forums no one wants to stop and start looking up things on google. These forums are set up to HELP EACH OTHER. START NOW. IT WILL HELP IN TRAINING.

It doesn't mean that at all, it just means that there will not be two separate divisions.

If we are fortunate enough to be hired though, does that mean that we will mainly fly domestic for many years, or at least 1st 2yrs? Thanks again for all of your answers.

Well, it's 12:39am here in EST, and the link is not up. Watch, all the ones not waiting on it, anxiously patiently (lol) are fast asleep, while we all waiting will putter out, then go to sleep. The ones that are asleep will wake up while we are OUT OF IT TIRED from waiting, and they will get to apply and, maybe, be called in the first set of calls. hahah.
