According to Delta, applicants must be at least 21 as of Jan. 1, 2018. The idea resumes will include:

  • More than one year of work experience in a personalized customer service, patient care or similar role
  • Experience in a role ensuring the safety and/or care of others (teacher, military, EMT, firefighter, coach, law enforcement, lifeguard, nurse, etc.)
  • Education beyond high school
  • Fluency in a language other than English: These applicants are considered for "Language of Destination" flight attendant roles, which offer additional pay as well as special responsibilities

To give a better understanding of the flight attendant job, Delta said in a press release they are launching the "Earning our Wings" mini-series every Monday and Thursday on YouTubeand Delta News Hub.
