BA’s Latest Email: “Could You Make It As Cabin Crew”?


British Airways has sent out an email to its Executive Club elite members trying to get them to apply for flight attendants positions at a meager wage.

BA has had staffing and retention issues lately, and many of its flights have been short in the number of cabin crew, although meeting the absolute minimum requirement.

I got 6 out of 8 right:

British Airways flight attendant pay starts at a non-livable range but can get higher over the years.

I honestly doubt that many BA Executive Club elite members would apply for a job that pays less than they pay in airfare monthly.


Lovely quiz, but I wish that the airline would pay a living wage to its flight attendants.

The yearly churn is high and very little in terms of career path opportunities, and unfortunately, it shows. Too many inexperienced crew members that are out in a year or two.

I would have had quite a few other options for the quiz:

What would you do when the bar cart is out of champagne because BA is too cheap to have it stocked at the destination?

Only the Chicken Tikka Masala option is left in the First Class?

Business-class passengers booked the Club Suite, but there was an equipment change to the old configuration?

The passenger’s entertainment system is malfunctioning, and you have already rebooted it twice?

You had too many drinks at the destination and unable to work on the flight back?
