I'm guessing that's taking into consideration the routes and markets? Supposedly Frontier isn't going to be collecting any portion of the tips.According to Glassdoor, Frontier Flight Attendants make $19-$37 an hour, with $20 being the (imo low) average. They would have to be working/getting paid for 40 hours a week to earn that claimed $39,700 annually.
In reading the article it says specifically "tips on sales". Wonder if they are doing this to try and get Flight Attendants to push harder for sales on the flight of things like alcohol so the airline makes more money.Along these lines I've wondered though how do they structure their pay scale nowadays. I mean does Frontier offer bonuses towards those receiving better tips over time, are they lowering their new flight attendant salaries but telling them "you'll supplement with tips", and how does a consumer fit in with their model.
That would make sense; I guess time would tell how much money they would make out of it. I hope it doesn't spread out further to other airlines-that would be my concern.In reading the article it says specifically "tips on sales".

Not sure it is a push for the stuff like soda and pretzels that Southwest gives you at no charge.
Huh? There are two answers people have selected... "0" by 94.8% (and the time I write this) and "not sure" by 5.2%. 94.8 + 5.2 = 100.And the poll is skewed. How can it be 94% say no, but there are 5% and 10% in the other answers? We do not tip the flight attendants. Nor will I start after seeing this.
You might be surprised, if you actually count the hours they spend (pre and post flight...all uncompensated) vs. what they get paid for.
Are they hourly or salaried? And are they unionized? If they are salaried, the work they do pre and post flight is no different than the work I do outside of 40 hours in my office job, as a salaried employee. All part of the job and my pay is the same regardless. If they are hourly and doing work they are not getting paid for, aren't there laws in place for this?True, they don’t start getting paid until the plane pushes back from the terminal.
