For Delta Air Lines customer Jeff Harper, one note made all the difference during one of the most challenging flights he’s ever faced.


Applicants must have a high school degree or GED, the ability to work in the U.S., speak English fluently and be at least 21 years of age by the date of application submission. Prior to their training start date, all new-hire flight attendants must be fully vaccinated. Fully vaccinated is two weeks after the second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or two weeks after one dose of the J&J vaccine.

Delta flights operate daily, overnight year-round; therefore, flight attendants must be flexible and willing to fly both international and domestic routes. With a global network spanning over 300 destinations, Delta is also seeking language of destination applicants who have fluency in English and one of the following languages: Danish, Dutch, French, Italian, Greek, German, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish, Czech, Swedish and Hebrew.
