American Airlines hiring 1,500 flight attendants

Posted: Updated:

American Airlines is hiring hundreds of flight attendants starting in a few months, the airline's parent company announced Wednesday.

The airline, which is in bankruptcy reorganization, said it needs new hires after "the overwhelming response by current flight attendants to the company's recent voluntary separation options."

In a news release, American's vice president of flight service Lauri Curtis said, "We look forward to welcoming new faces and working together to bring a fresh energy to our team, while at the same time giving current flight attendants the opportunity to move up the seniority list."

The airline, which has been hobbled by canceled flights, delays and complaints, said earlier this week it is hoping to emerge from bankruptcy protection soon.

Hiring for new flight attendants will begin in early December, with the first training class starting January 2013.
