Remember when we were actually paid for all the work we do on the aircraft?
We used to make 8% to 11.1% commission on all our onboard sales. We now make 2%.
Our commission was a big part of our paychecks. We were able to bring home a significant amount of money from our sales. When the company decided to reconfigure our aircrafts from 150 seats to 166 seats, which required an extra flight attendant, the company said they were paying too much money to the Flight Attendants and cut our commission. Now we have to ensure the safety of more passengers for less money, while we read quarter after quarter about how profitable our company is.
