    I have been working at Frontier Airlines full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Flight Attendant union that protests our rights, our rest, settle our grievances and just landed us a new contract. - New Contract raised starting pay to 23.56 per flight hour and by the year 2022 the starting pay will be 25.50 per flight hour. - The ability to pick up trips outside of your assigned base(even as a reserve on your days off) -The ability to work as few as 50 hours a month once you get a line* -6 months maternity leave. - A rapidly growing main line airline that is hiring steadily and quickly, boosting your seniority by almost 80-100 Flight Attendants a month just about EVERY MONTH. -Flight Benefits with most US carriers that allow you to fly stand by on virtually every airline. -International flight benefits with a plethora of Airlines that kick in at 6 months. -No limits to the amount of time you must be with the company to switch bases. No limit to how frequently you can change bases. - Relatively easy job during normal day to day operations. All you have to do is communicate with your crew, do the duties required by your position on that day and be alert about things happening with passengers or the aircraft. -Nice hotels at the layovers and very strict test rules laid out in our contracts about how many hours we can work and how many days we can work in a row. -Extremely easy to manipulate your schedule to get specific days off. -Easy to pick trips up out of base on days off. - A smaller airline with most fellow flight attendants being very kind, cordial, and willing to help and explain things to you if you need it. This also means that you get to build friendships other with flight attendants and pilots because you will often fly with the same person every few months depending on the size of your base.

    Cons

    - Training is VERY quick paced and 95% is emergency, do-or-die, worst-case-scenario focused. By the time you graduate and get onto your first working trip you won’t know little things like which carts go where and where to find extra trash bags. They focus so much on feeding emergency knowledge that everything else has to be picked up while you work, which can be daunting for you first few flights depending on the routes. -As a flight attendant in Vegas you will not fly very much at all on your reserve days . They’ll use you a lot the first month or two but once new hires come in (every other week) you’re just sitting around bored or sitting airport standby for a majority of the month .
