It’s terrible. Huge pay cut. Toxic culture. Limited advancement opportunities. Don’t go unless you only want the free flights

There are probably outliers, but I wouldn’t count on it

Airline industry doesn't pay as well compared to other industries because they view the flight benefits as a strong benefit of the job

I worked at AA and can tell you the flight benefits are NOT worth what they they tell you. I factored 10k at best, per year

Have friends at United. Impression is that it's very much about who you know there... lots of empire building. Flight benefits are NOT the perk they were 10 years ago now that all flights are full

Looking to see what type of self help others find actually beneficial and would love to use that to help others stuck in burn out too

Need some advice! I’ve been in a serious relationship for a year. I grew up in a traditional south Asian family where no one discussed relationships.

So I want to tell her about my boyfriend. I’m still kind of nervous though. Anyone gone through something similar/any tips to navigate the conversation? Going to see her later today.
