Good if yound and still live at home
Mixed Fleet Cabin Crew (Former Employee) –  London Heathrow Terminal 514 August 2017
There's a reason people are striking, the money isn't great, but more of a factor are the terms and scheduling. If you are <24 and live at home, go for it, if not - avoid.

To be cabin crew takes a certain person. Be prepared to be thrown in the deep end but experience and meet some amazing people and explore parts of the world you never expected!

Don't care about their staff
Cabin Crew (Former Employee) –  Heathrow, Greater London11 July 2017
There's no individuality and no respect for their employees. They have no loyalty towards employees and change the rules as they go along. On paper it seems a nice place to work with career advancement but the reality is quite different.
Pros
cheaper flights, holiday
Cons
low pay

Fun job for 1 year
Cabin Crew (Former Employee) –  London Heathrow Airport, Greater London21 June 2017
Its a great job, you'll meet loads of new people and experience countless things that you would have never dreamed of being able to afford every day you go to work. On the flip side the training is hard and getting started is really tricky. You'll be extremely sleep deprived, you'll be completely unaware of what to do for the first 6 months and the pay is pretty minimal.
Its definitely worth doing for a year or two. You'll gain loads of invaluable skills and experiences. You'll also have staff travel benefits, so hopefully you can enable someone else to share your journey.
Pros
staff travel benefits, new experiences, good customer service experiences, travel
Cons
long hours, sleep deprivation, poor pay, unsociable hours

Bad pay and exhausting, but being paid to see the world!
Mixed Fleet Cabin Crew (Current Employee) –  London Heathrow Terminal 530 May 2017
Terrible pay conditions for Mixed a Fleet colleagues and company treat colleagues as a number not a person. The management style is too hands off, having never met my manager in a year of working there.
Pros
See the world and get paid to do it.
Cons
Exhausting and unsocialble hours

Amazing opputunity but not long term

Overall positive.
Pros

Cons
Busy rostering, poor salary

Interesting place to work
Cabin Crew (Current Employee) –  Gatwick Airport Station22 April 2017
You need to be ready for dutys schedule at different times and different lengths. No month is the same. Personal life, appointments need to be plan ahead but working as a cabin crew for BA can give you a chance to visit amazing places e.g. Week of sightseeing in Mexico or a quick shopping in New York.
Pros
Visiting amazing places around the world
Cons
Long hours, jet lag

Great way to see the world
Cabin Crew (Former Employee) –  London / Gatwick Airport, West Sussex18 April 2017
This is a great company to work for if you want to travel whilst still living at home!

Cabin crew are a close knit community and the job is like no other - It is a lifestyle choice.

The hours can be long - and you can be away from home for long periods of time, however you can counter this with having a lot of time off during quieter periods.

Management sometimes fail to understand that you have a life outside of the company, you are expected to live, breathe, eat and sleep BA!
Pros
Get to see some amazing places
Cons
Away from home for long periods of time

Traveling the World.
Cabin Crew (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London24 February 2017
Got to travel the World and get paid for it! Stayed in the best hotels and met some amazing people.
The job itself was more challenging than people think, being in charge of the safety of everyone on board. But made up for it at the destination.....my favorite being Japan.
The hardest part of the job was the training. 8 weeks of learning something completely new to me. Having to know about the aircraft, safety procedures, safety equipment etc etc
Pros
Travelling the World.
Cons
Low salary.

Many Flight benefits but low pay
Cabin Crew (Current Employee) –  Gatwick Airport Station, West Sussex15 February 2017
The flight benefits you receive at British Airways is excellent. However, the pay is towards the lower end of the spectrum but will not bother you if you're young and love to fly and travel.
Pros
Flight benefits
Cons
Pay

Love the job, hate the company
Cabin Crew (Current Employee) –  Heathrow, Greater London3 February 2017
I join this job with passion, however now I feel this job don't even give me the basic of the security of living. Especially with expensive living stander in London, price–performance ratio of woking and living is very low. Also I feel the company itself don't care about its employees as it should be, it's emotional to leave but I have no choice.
Pros
big company, Great destinations.
Cons
very low pay
