Once formal training is completed, new flight attendants are placed on reserve status where they could remain for at least one year, but as many as five to 10 years. This means they work when called upon to fill in for absent or vacationing flight attendants or on extra flights. After being on reserve status, flight attendants bid for regular assignments, and generally get their choices based on seniority. Because flight attendants remain in their jobs for a longer period than in the past, advancement takes more time.
