How to get Hired at American Airlines

Flight Attendant school has become ever more important.   Historically, there has been around a 1% hiring rate.  In other words, your chances of getting hired is 1 out of 100.  In 2019, it is estimated that airlines received over 1,500,000 flight attendant applications.

One of the first places airlines look for flight attendants is The Travel Academy’s flight attendant school.  The choice is quite simple for airline hiring managers –  when they have the choice of hiring someone who has flight attendant training and/or education,  versus someone who does not, they almost always choose the person with the education.

The Travel Academy students set themselves apart from the rest with a simulated flight attendant work environment and hands-on flight attendant skills training. Airlines trust our graduates and offer flight attendant jobs to students while still in class!  

Class records for job offers in 2019 & 2020 were 8 and 9 job offers before graduation.  Not everyone receives the same number of job offers, but everyone receives the same training opportunities – what will you do with yours?
