Reviews about Pay & Benefits for Flight Attendant in United Airlines

Good benefits, okay pay

The work life balance is not so great when you are starting out, very hard if you have a family (kids, partner). The benefits are great- medical, flight. The pay is very low starting out.

Flexible and interesting

You can build your own schedule especially once you have more years into your career. It is very much based on seniority. Pay increases per year until you reached certain tenure (right now it’s 13 years). It has a potential to make decent paycheck. Getting to see the world while getting paid is priceless.


Flexibility, Steady pay increase


Work during most holidays, physically challenging sometimes

Flexible when senior enough

If you have enough seniority it's a very flexible career. Reduced fare travel benefits are a bonus. Travel the world and meet new people weekly (at least).


Reduced fare travel, flexible schedule


Standby on oversold flights, reserve quality of life is inhumane
