Delta launched “Earning Our Wings” yesterday, a 10 episode mini-series that airs every Monday and Thursday on YouTube and Delta News Hub. The series follows five new flight attendants as they navigate their way through Delta’s eight-week training program in Atlanta.
What does it take to be a Delta Air Lines flight attendant? In the “Earning Our Wings” miniseries, journey with flight attendants through the grueling eight-week training program that tests their limits in order to become the safety experts and customer service professionals of Delta Air Lines.
The announcement followed news that 150,000 applicants applied last year for about 1,200 flight attendant jobs. Delta says it selected less than 1% of applicants from the 35,000 video interviews and 6,000 in-person interviews held. In 2018, the airline will offer another 1,000 flight attendant job openings.
