XJT and lovin it in San Luis Potosí, Mexico said: Benefits are space available. You do pay taxes on international flights as those are included in the fare for revenue passengers but domestic is free. We get seats based on our boarding priority which is below UAL on all UAL flights but we are 1st priority on our own metal. I was based in ORD my first 2 months. I made it home 7 out of 8 weeks on my days off.
Sometimes when I visit my family in NJ, I don't always get on my first choice but usually make it onto my 2nd or 3 rd choice. There r tons of flights from IAH to EWR so I know I will get there unless there is severe weather.

I have a weird question with being on the ERJ alone is the safety announcement done by DVD and the fa demonstrates. Or they do both.

You are eligible for insurance benefits at 90 days from the date of hire, or the 1st day of the month after your 90th day -- whichever is later. Your first day of training is included in the calculation -- if you start training June 5, 2013, you would be eligible for insurance October 1, 2013 -- because the 3-month mark (September 5, 2013) would be in the middle of the month.

Ive been reading through the pages and picking up some wonderful information....am I right to assume that if you change your base after say a year or two that you end up back down on the bottom of the seniority list again when you start up at your new base?

No, if you were hired before a newer FA at that base, you are above them on the seniority list for that base

The ERJ must be different, on the CRJ side our benefits start after 30 days of employment. I started on June 3, my benefits start on July 3.

Wait, what? I know the CRJ side at XJT was ASA but 30 days seems low for a regional. They have one union now too. I wonder how that went over? Was that from the start of training or your first day on the line? Most airline benefits usually kick in once your off your 90 day probationary period.

Thats slightly confidential. They don't like people naming overnight hotel locations and training hotels. Lets just say, if its in IAH, its not a bad hotel and there is a restaurant which you will be sick off sometime during the second week of training, but hey, its free and the food isn't bad. I recommend the Cajun Chicken pasta.It also has a pool and a bar in the restaurant. You get a roommate.

The FA does the safety demo with the CD; however, if the recorder is not working or the CD is lost, the FA will have to do both.

I actually like the idea of doing the presentation solo while talking and demonstrating the safety features......sounds like fun....more personable, your more in control of the situation too... and you can reach out and be more in your passengers face, make them take note.......I think it can help stop them from being rude towards you....it may have a positive effect

I'm not sure XJet provides the meal vouchers any longer at the hotel, but as stated, the food does get old after a week or so.

Yes, hit the pause button twice, and it should play. If not, you'll have to read it...

No, this is NOT a good idea unless you learn the demo verbatim. I don't know of many FAs who prefer to read, lay cards down, demo, read, lay cards down, demo... Many times you will be taxiing down the runway while doing the demo and being in your jumpseat for your silent review at wheels up is more important than reaching out for them to take note -- lol!

Yes, and though I've heard the CD hundreds of times and can recite the verbiage along with the CD, it's a different ballgame when you're caught off-guard with a non-working CD and the passengers are looking down your throat, and you can't remember a darn thing! I carry two CDs AND I check to make sure the CD is working a couple of times during preflight -- just in case MX needs to be called.

Y'all have been such a huge help! I received my training packet and have begun studying and preparing. I have some rather trivial questions about the appearance policy. I realized that I don't have a single pair of shows that fits the requirements! Regarding the heel style - it says "block". Are they really strict about that, or do they just mean no stiletto style (skinny heels)? Regarding hair color - it states the no regrowth can be visible at any time.

Ugh I did it again... Sorry

... Would they be ok with the popular ombré style of coloring (where the roots are darker and fade into natural highlights)? Finally, what about hosiery? Do I need to wear pantyhose or stockings every time I wear a skirt?

Thanks for humoring me!

With regard to training, yes they are kinda strict about the shoes ... most of us wore flats for training --- once you get on the line, you WILL see all kinds of shoes -- lol! Don't worry about your hair, as long as it's not purple or green.
