Here's something you might not know about the airline industry - flight attendants don't start getting paid until all the passengers are seated and the doors are closed. But that's about to change, at least at one major airline.
- Delta announced this week that crew members will now be paid at a 50% rate once once boarding begins, 30-40 minutes ahead of the scheduled flight time.
- It should add up to a pay raise of several thousand dollars over the course of a year.
- Believe it or not, Delta is the first major airline to do this. The change goes into effect June 2nd.
- Were you aware that flight attendants weren't paid until the doors closed? Is that fair, considering they're expected to be on the plane and 'working' by that time?
