Paid Time Off – PTO Time

A very generous paid time off program of 25 days annually (prorated for partial
years) is in place after completion of 6 months of service. Staff must bid for
vacation in advance based on summer/winter schedules using full weeks. In case of
sickness or emergency, staff must call in at least 6 hours before flight schedule
time in order to receive any sick/emergency pay once otherwise eligible. Otherwise,
time is unpaid. Excellent attendance is expected in order to retain employment.
Travel Benefits

New hire Cabin Crew will receive a certain amount of free space available travel
privileges on Aer Lingus system-wide after 6 months of hire. Current U.S.
gateways are New York, Boston, Chicago and Orlando. As Dulles-Madrid is a United
flight, travel benefits on that route would be under interline concessions rather
than Aer Lingus. Cabin Crew also receive exceptional travel benefits with most
major carriers based on space available travel and other applicable policies. (As we
are an international carrier, we are not in a position to have domestic commuting
jump seat agreements with domestic carriers).

Employees’ spouses, eligible dependent children, and other eligible designated
nominations may also be eligible to use unlimited space-available travel privileges
on Aer Lingus system wide at reduced rates.

Discounted Tickets for Family are also provided There are also generous
discounts on Flights for Family.

How YOU can pass the interview and start your career in the world's most glamorous career
Dear Audrey,

Thank you so much for your ebook. I just wanted to let you know that I was offered
a cabin crew position with Jetstar. After reading your book I really felt informed and
confident to answer the questions in the interview. Most of the questions that were
asked were variations of the questions in your book. I really felt prepared and I
cant thank you enough, it was money well spent!
