Moderate decline in employment is expected for flight attendants through 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Even in the best of times, finding employment as a flight attendant is highly competitive, and since some job restrictions at airlines have been abolished, the once high rate of turnover for flight attendants has declined. Most of the job openings through 2022 will arise from replacement of flight attendants who retire or transfer to other jobs. Regional and low-cost airlines may also offer better job opportunities for flight attendants.
