A love of travel

Imagine the joy of working for a fine Italian restaurant when you really love pasta. Now imagine working for an airline when you love to travel—that’s amore! We fly to destinations all over the world, so having an appetite for new places and being on the go is a must. Just as important is sharing your rich travel experiences and insider travel tips with our customers.


Thinking on your feet

Some situations will go beyond what you experience in training. You’ll need to know how to adapt and respond to a customer when a problem arises, and use a little outside-the-box thinking.
