The primary function of Hawaiian flight attendants is to ensure the safety of our guests while aboard Company aircraft, by being physically and psychologically capable of performing in the event of an emergency. In addition, flight attendants provide our guests with a consistent and prescribed level of customer service in the aircraft cabin during flight while providing an unsurpassed Aloha experience.
Flight Attendants work in a fast paced environment; they must be able to handle emergency situations and must be able to deal effectively with all types of personalities in an attentive and pleasant manner. Hawaiian Airlines reserves the right to modify or eliminate duties or requirements of the position consistent with business necessity, collective bargaining agreements and in accordance with applicable law.
Flight Attendants work in an environment subject to varying climatic conditions, variable positive and negative gravitational loads induced by turbulence, and varying levels of cabin pressurization. In addition, flight attendants are required to stand for up to four to seventeen hours, during which time stooping, twisting, and pulling and pushing cabin equipment may be necessary.
Flight attendants do not work a typical five day, forty hour workweek. Instead, they are generally scheduled to be on duty for one to six days, followed by days off prior to beginning another duty period. During duty periods, flight attendants spend their time away from home and are provided with overnight accommodations. Most flight attendants work approximately 75 or more flight hours per month, which most closely equates to a standard, full time work schedule.
All of the job duties, including the emergency duties, outlined above are essential functions of the flight attendant position.
