Flight Attendants

Work Environment

Flight attendants are usually assigned to a home base in a major city or large metropolitan area. These locations include cities such as New York, Chicago, Boston, Atlanta, Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and St. Louis. Some airlines assign attendants on a rotation system to home bases, or they may give preference to the requests for certain home bases made by those with rank and seniority. Those with the longest records of service may be given the most desirable flights and schedules.
