I did a search for skywest on here and only saw two threads where they were mentioned -- and I couldn't find where exactly in the thread it was mentioned.

Please note - skywest is NOT AmericaWest.

The reason I'm asking is because I, yes an adult PA, am meeting with SkyWest this week to see about becoming a Flight Attendant...I know, it's odd, one of the industries that we're constantly battling with...

There are a few different reasons behind this "job path" that I'm looking into - One of them is to be able to see if we can make a difference, somehow.

I have known several flight attendants in my past with PA problems -- One even for Continental...He somehow got things worked out so that he was put on a route where he never had to deal with peanuts (Hawaii to Guam...If anyone needs to go flying trans-pacifically...) so I know it should be possible.

Anyway, I would be interested to hear from anyone who has flown SkyWest who has any good or bad experiences to share. My interview is on Wednesday the 21st...

With hope,

Melissa

Hi Melissa,
I was a flight attendant - first with TWA then with PSA, a small airline that was bought out by USAIR. This was long before I was PA - and also long before peanuts were so commonly served as part of the inflight service.
I enjoyed it....no regrets.
If you are severely PA, I'd think twice about applying.
If the airline is peanut free today, it doesn't mean it will be tomorrow. Policies change and airlines merge with other airlines.
If you don't react to airborne peanut dust, I wouldn't tell them you're PA. I can't imagine they'll ask in the interview if you're allergic to peanuts.
I flew for 8 years. It was a great job at a good time in my life.
