In my opinion, there is nothing like being a Flight Attendant, it’s the world’s best job ever. So, if you enjoy meeting people and traveling, go for it! Even if it’s just for a short period of your life, try it. I wish you all the best in your new career flying the skies.
Many of the major airlines not only have policies to allow their employees to travel for free, but also have some version of a friends and family plan (commonly referred to as a buddy pass). This allows flight attendants to bring their children, spouses, and other dependents along on flights for free.
Qualified American Airlines employees are allowed to fly for free, along with their registered guests and companions. Retirees who pass the “65-point plan” (a minimum of 10 years of active service, and the retiree’s age plus years of service must equal or exceed 65) also qualify for “non-revenue” travel.Oct 13, 2020
