I am interested in applying for a flight attendant position with southwest or working for the southwest family. I am questioning these salary though, if someone could help me out. I see the starting salary for a flight attendant is about $24 per flight of 55 min. The average flights an attendant makes in 1 month is 72-80. This is roughly 2 weeks worth of work. Yet, the average starting salaries I researched for a southwest flight attendant is much higher than $21k a year, closer to $40k. Do flight attendants basically work part time? Do they receive more flights with seniority? How long would it take to build up to 100 or more flight hours a month?
