Well no memos have stated hiring fa's but ive heard otherwise .But it doesnt change the fact that im there already (DL) and it wont help me to leave the company .Cause if I wanna come back and wear a red dress which I will it wont look good then I'll probably never get in cause I'll look like an AIR WH00000RE!

Yeah the atlas gig sounds great and the money is good. It was like the perfect job for me, since I am from Houston, I had no problems moving back. But the no flight benefits is a deal breaker for me, I feel if I pay for my tik out of pocket with the extra money I make with Atlas I'll be just as broke. I think I'm going with the regional for now, I need my flight benefits, cause this fly girl loves being in the air for leisure just a little too much!! It was a very tough decision for me with atlas, cause it's everything that I wanted...beautiful 747plane, a high end customer, no up and down as HPN said like the regional, more money...but no freakin flight benefits...what a bomber! I was so disappointed cause it sounded really great to be at home in houston again, just perfect and then that!!

They called me on Thursday. I can not recall anything said and I forgot to ask, so let me get this straight, there are no discounts on other airlines to commute on? Usually they would offer discounts on other scheduled airlines...Need to know before I buy a tix to go to interview!

I am from IAH so that won't be a problem once I am there...

Ok I did the online assessment, what happens next? Is there a pass or fail?

Ok..just read previous posts on other pages...I got my answer for now. Sounds like old Pan Am days of Rio Rockets. JFK to GIG 12 hr flt time 9hr L/O when you got your room key. It is about making the most amount of money in a short amount of time...Too tired to sight see on 9 hours, and to be ready to fly back. Sounds like there it would be a awesome job if you have 'been there done that' and still have time off, especially 'to live and work in the same place.' That is the ultimate dream F/A job- Travel Benefits would make it dreamier =). Commuting is not exactly fun.

Do read the Bing. info on Atlas...they do have some safety issues with their older 747s. Just an FYI.. (I would still do it)

Okay, I did the assessment in April? I got a call again on Wed., they have to see if they received my assessment and if I passed? I didn't know this was something you could fail? Isn't it personality profiling? Anyway, I am pulling my hair out I need a job!!!!! And, I already live in Houston.

Question : if chosen for training will transportation be provided to MIA? And will it be from IAH or will they provide from your current residence? Training is paid at a reduced rate...what is the reduction?

amill in Grayson, Georgia said: oh okay I was just gonna ask if anyone else was called to interview with ATLAS FA RAE I Know what youre going through Im working at delta and waiting for inflight to open up but thats no guarantee theyll call me in to even interview yeah one destination humm. Um why do you think atlas pays more than chatq??? I was told only 65 guarantee hrs at ~21.00 !

thanks understanding and relating to the situation, i did hear from a couple friends that delta is gonna start hiring in the fall, um the only reason i thinking about republic bc im in ny and i wouldnt have to relocate but the pay is a bit lower, from the forums i read its 17 to start but i was have travel benefits! are u planning to interview with atlas?

HPN in Port Chester, New York said: I also did the online assessment and have yet to hear back. By what I've understood, transportation is paid to training but not the interview. They also cover uniforms, accommodations and meals.

This is all premium service, first and business class only. I checked out the interiors and it is fitted with 5 across seating, large screens on the back of each seat. Seems to me they would be going after FA's with First Class service experience, yet the ad on Monster.com said the FA experience was not necessary. These are oil company executives BTW, people used to a high end service.

The 747 is one of the most reliable aircraft out there and with 4 engines over the Atlantic, you could not go wrong.

The rocket flight is doable as long as adequate rest is given to FA's. Most 747's come equipped with crew sleeping compartments. The 12 hour layover is not bad as Luanda is not Rome.

Lastly, a previous poster who's a FA with them had mentioned something about World Cup flights? So Angola may not be the only destination for now.

Thanks for the info ! But is transportation from IAH to MIA or will they transport you from your current residence? If I have to pay for another flt to IAH for them to fly me to MIA I would be better off finding my own way to training. I live in Ohio. Any ideas?

I'm an experienced FA (7 years at Delta), and I submitted my resume last week. I got a voicemail for an interest in my resume, but haven't called back. The sole reason for me wanting to fly again is flight benefits, and since I will be laid off from my current job this year, I need medical too. I'll have to pass.

Hi there everyone!! So...I've been reading all the post about ATLAS and it sounds like a GREAT flying gig!! I was a F/A for 7 years and after having my little boy 12 years ago I resigned to stay at home with him(so very blessed to do so). I applied to ATLAS a few weeks back and got a phone call yesterday and also took the online assessment yesterday. This morning I got a call inviting me to IAH for a group interview!! OMG....I am so excited!! I was hoping someone could explain how a typical work schedule is set up days on/ days off?? Do you bid or is it reserve?? It just sounds so very flexible and that is exactly what I was hoping for when I decided to fly again!! I still want to stay active in ball games and school functions but flying is something I miss so very much and ATLAS seems like an AMAZING opportunity!! Not worried about flying benefits just would love to know what to expect once out on line!! Can't wait to hear from you guys!! Good Luck everyone!! :)

hey i applied to and also was invited to IAH. how it was explained eo me training is in MIA they fly you there from your homw airport. for the interview in IAH you have to fly yourself there. its 747 service to angola. she told me u will fly once a week 3 day trip. so 3 on 4 off. Im not sure if u can get extra trips. its 22 an hr times 65 hrs guarantee. its only 189 seats on a 747 so ur are giving excellent service. more places to come in the future and hopefully travel benefits. I think since the f.a thing is pretty new they have to get all the kinks out and then im sure they will offer flight benefits. AND you have to live in Houston after training. In Mia its paid training plus meals and hotels. Heard it the Hyatt hotel in MIA so VERY NICE. GO FOR IT.

The thing is, you need to go to the interview first so that they can decide if they want to hire you or not.

Very True. I am just trying to exude confidence because it makes the wait less stressful.

I have some friends who use Priceline dot com to book cheap hotels. You can get a 4 star hotel in downtown Houston for about $55-80 depending on what's available (there are cheaper hotels for about $35 as well, like 2 or 3 star). I highly recommend everyone who travels a lot or needs a room to use it. It can save you LOTS of money. You can even book flights and get rental cars on there as well. I hope this helps!

Congrats on the invite to the interview. Just be yourself. Be confident, courteous, professional and honest. They are looking for REAL people who have these qualities. Good luck!

Hi there Lacy!! Would you mind answering a couple of questions for me?? How many days a week do you fly?? From what I understand flts leave out on Mon, Wed, Fri....so if you left on Monday do you get back to IAH sometime Tuesday nite and then another flt goes out Wednesday? Also, how are reserve days built in?? When you came out of training did you have a line?? I am totally thrilled about this whole opportunity just trying to get a feel for what life as an ATLAS F/A will be like and trying to make sure I still will have plenty of time to be a mommy!! Thanks so much in advance for any input you might have!! Good Luck everyone!! :)

I have to be the most indecisive person in the world. I keep going back and forth on this Atlas Airline opportunity, one side of me is like go for it...then I'm like no take the regional airline with the flight benefits. But I've done regional flying before and this Atlas deal just sounds like a new experience for me, that may take a while before it comes around again. For you guys or gals that are doing the Atlas flight please tells us what you dont like, what you do like, are you happy? I mean I know this is an open forum and anybody could be on here, well just tell me what you do like about the Atlas position...Please!!

Houston Express
About this flight

SonAir, prides itself on being the first national company to offer a direct transport of passengers and cargo between Angola and the United States of America more precisely between the cities of Luanda and Houston.

This operation started on November 6, 2000 and is intended only to workers and employees of companies in the Oil Industry in Angola who are members of USAEA - U.S. AFRICA ENERGY ASSOCIATION.

So for the reason mentioned above, this service is not intended to compete with the services of scheduled airlines.

The Express Houston - Luanda - Houston was a first step in opening up the coveted international SonAir horizons. The success of the bond secured a qualitative leap of the company.
The charter flight dedicated to oil companies is now operated by Atlas Air, which is the direct link between Luanda - Angola and Houston - United States of America.

Currently, the Houston Express provides all the facilities for long-haul travelers.

The Boeing 747 - 400 aircraft provides a modern setting to serve 189 passengers, predominantly in business class, which is ideal for a transatlantic flight.

Being the passenger of the primacy SonAir in order for you to have a safe trip, the plane is equipped with individual monitors enabling the client to make use of in-flight entertainment system.

For what it's worth....
I was hired for the first Aer Lingus training class back in January and came to Atlas instead. It was a hard decision, but I have more time off here. I have a few friends that did go to Aer Lingus, but they are not happy......they are coming to the interview in July for the Atlas position.

Rumor has it that training will be the end of July. I can also tell you that there are more flights to come.

Best of luck!

Also....is there reserve days built into your line and are you only scheduled to fly 1 trip a week?? How was training?? Was it 4-5 weeks long?? Did you hold a line right out of training?? So very sorry to bombard you with all these questions just trying to make sure this will be a good fit!!

Hi Ramona.
I don't really understand why it seems such a great opportunity for everyone here. I can tell for myself though. Africa doesn't sound like a great destination for me. I have friends among pilots and they highly recommended not to go there. I think Atlas won't start any new flights for a long time. Besides, Houston in summer doesn't sound like a great place to live because of the climate.
I talked to my husband and decided not to go for the interview at all. Good luck everyone!
