Who can fire flight attendants?
I am going to Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology, August of next year, and I was wondering, when I become an airline pilot, can I fire a flight attendent if I get wind of them disrespecting my passengers, or not properly doing there job, can I do that, or does the company that pays me have the right to do that, and can I tell them to wear longer skirts on my plane and will do there job without looking sexy, how does that work? I always was the tomboy type, and I just dont like the girly girl type, I want my passengers to feel comfortable on my plane, I dont approve of being sexy on the job. And can I tell them that they are not welcome at all in the cockpit, I would think that being the head pilot, I would be the boss of my plane, If anybody knows, please let me know. Thanks. P.S. I dont need anybody saying your not there yet so dont worry about, because I will be one day, and would like to know these things. Also I forgot to add, what I mean by them not being in the cockpit, is like when I have an out of control passenger, I would rather have security tell me, and not one of them.

If the company has a uniform policy, you will not be able to change it on the plane that you are flying. You will not be able to hire or fire people, at most you could report a problem to... More

Wow you really need to change that attitude if you want to make it as a (happy) airline pilot. You are the bus driver. You are not the boss of anyone nor do you even remotely have the authority to tell the flight attendant how they should look. The company writes manuals that explain how everyone should look and act... More

In addition to the other excellent points already raised, I would add that the first thing you learn in the cockpit is Humility 101. Even if you’re >very< good in this subject already, it’s a fantastic refresher. As it is, you may run into trouble early on in your tuition since your ego will probably cause you to... More
