I’ve been a flight attendant at Atlantic Southeast for nearly nine years, and it is a great way to see new places, travel on your time off and meet new people. And not only do I love my job here, I love the company I work for!

Back in 2009, as the nation’s economy struggled through a recession, Atlantic Southeast faced the difficult decision to furlough pilots as the demand for air travel fell. I was one of those pilots, and it wasn’t easy to leave the family I’d grown to love at Atlantic Southeast. During the furlough, I found myself working as a customer service performance leader at Chicago’s Midway airport. Although I greatly appreciated my role there and my coworkers, I really wanted to be back with Atlantic Southeast, and it just so happened that they were hiring flight attendants. I sent in my application and was welcomed into the Inflight Services group as a flight attendant trainee while on furlough as a pilot!

Just as we were finishing up emergency drills and preparing to make our first flights as trainees, I received word that the furloughed pilots were being called back to work. I was excited, but very grateful for all of the new and exciting experiences that the Inflight team had given me to make me a better pilot. When my flight attendant trainers and fellow trainees found out that I had been recalled, I was greeted by everyone with open arms and excitement for our expansion as a company and for me being able to continue pursuing my dream to fly!

After flight attendant graduation, I’ll have the wonderful opportunity to fly as a flight attendant and gain skills that will help me better understand our operation until my pilot training class begins. Experiences like this one make me proud to be a part of a company with such a very close sense of unity that provides a unique opportunity to help their fellow teammates not just grow in their workgroup, but throughout the company!

I passed my final exam last week and then headed off to Washington-Dulles Airport for my first flight as a certified flight attendant! I am very excited for my first trips as flight attendant, and now have a much more comprehensive view of my job as a pilot than ever before.

Whether you are traveling to Key West, Fla. or Toronto, Canada, here is a great idea to keep it simple when traveling with kids. During my seven years as a flight attendant, my schedule could change at the drop of a hat, so I was always prepared for both sunny destinations and colder climates….yes, in one bag. So here is the trick to packing everything your family needs into one bag: fold your clothes in half and then roll them up, burrito style! Not only will this save space, it also helps keep the wrinkles out! I’m proud to say that I can pack for a full seven days in one roll-a-board bag that is not all that large! There you have it: a trick that gives roll-a-board a new meaning!

Well-trained team? Check. Balloons? Check. Elvis? Check. In Amarillo, Texas (AMA), these are the ingredients for a successful station opening!

Last week, I had the pleasure of being one of the first employees to open Atlantic Southeast’s new ground handled station in Amarillo. The first day of service created quite the fanfare at our airport –balloons decorated the ticket counter and Elvis even made an appearance with the town’s mayor to celebrate the airport’s inaugural Delta Connection flight from Memphis, Tenn.

Our team of 19 employees will work three daily Delta Connection flights between Amarillo and Memphis. The first flight departs Amarillo in the early morning hours at 5:55 a.m., the second at 11:40 a.m. and the third at 3:40 p.m. We have flights arriving from Memphis at 10:48 a.m., 3:05 p.m. and 8:59 p.m.

A special thanks is owed to our City Development, Airport Customer Service Training, Information Technology and Ground Equipment Maintenance teams who spent countless hours preparing our station for its big day. The people on these teams are rock stars!

We look forward to seeing you soon in Amarillo!

Reebok and Tous in Hartsfield-Jackson’s C Concourse are just two of the airport’s many retail outlets.

Here at our hometown hub in Atlanta, the airport has done a great job of attracting a crowd of vendors to suit a traveler’s every need. Here are just a few of the highlights:

  • Rest and relaxation: Minute Suites on B Concourse rents private suites for napping, watching TV or just escaping from the noise.
  • Spa time: Full-service spa treatments, manicures and pedicures are offered at the XpressSpa on Concourses A and C.
  • New outfit: Brooks Brothers (Atrium), Lacoste (B Concourse) and Reebok (B and C Concourse) are just a few of the clothing and accessory outlets in Atlanta’s airport. Convenient for those last-minute purchases!
  • Bite to eat: Whether you’re looking for a quick bite to eat or a sit-down meal, restaurants are around every corner. You can even sample Atlanta’s hometown brew at the Sweet Water Brew House on B Concourse.
  • Under the weather: The AeroClinic in the atrium has you covered if a medical need arises. They also set up flu shot booths in the concourses during flu season!

These are just a few of the retail and service outlets at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, and it seems there is always something new moving in. So, next time you find yourself with a long layover in Atlanta, spend a little time seeing what the airport has to offer.
