      Best Airline to Work For...EVER

      Pros

      Best Company to work for, I never had a bad experience, I looked forward to going to work every day and I knew that my work family was behind me 100% for any situation that came up.

      Cons

      Towards the end, those of us who were able to stick around until the full acquisition took place, was like watching your best friend leave you forever. Every day, more people had left, and what remained was just a skeleton of a company that had been the best in the industry.

      Pros

      Flight Benefits, A-lot of camaraderie with staff and co-workers, Fun corporate events to attend

      Cons

      Flight Benefits on STANDBY, dealing with the front lines of angry and rude people especially during weather delays which seemed constant, not great pay for all that you are responsible for

      Diverse and inclusive company. Progressive policies.

      Dismal pay. Scheduling and management were not consistent in their policies. No sense of loyalty to their crew. Pilots were often sexist and even egotistical at times.
