As the world’s largest airline increases its flights to and from Athens International Airport, so too, must it increase its Greek-speaking workforce to accommodate more Greek speakers flying its airplanes.
American Airlines is currently advertising open positions for flight attendants willing to be based in either Boston, MA; Charlotte, NC; Chicago, IL; Dallas/Ft Worth, TX; Los Angeles, CA; Miami, FL; New York, NY; Philadelphia, PA; Phoenix, AZ; Raleigh/Durham, NC; San Francisco, CA; St Louis, MO or Washington, DC.
American currently flies daily non-stops from Philadelphia to Athens and in May added daily seasonal service from Chicago to Athens.
The position requires fluency in Greek, as well as several other requirements which are listed in the job posting on the airline’s website.
The move to hire more Greek-speakers comes as both United Airlines and Delta have also increased their Greek-speaking workforce to accommodate native Greek-speaking customers traveling to and from Athens, from various U.S. cities.

what are the salaries like?
I’m curious as well, hopefully someone can give us some idea of what that will be.
It depends how much one wants to fly. Some fly the minimum hours and some fly a lot of hours.
Would love to work here
I’m Greek , living in Las Vegas and I would love to work as a fly attendant flying to Athens with delta or American Airlines! My sister used to be a fly attendant for Aegean airlines and she’s the one who recommended me this job . I wish there was positions open.
I would love to work here.
Fly attendant?? c’mon! stay in school and get a better job!
Is a 75 year old male an option? LOL
Greek speakers are based out of Chicago or Philly, however many commute to their base from other cities, and have a small apartment, crash pad at their base city.
Flights to Athens run from May to End of September. On offseason, new hires will work other flights.
It’s a fun job. I love it. I have two careers. A professional one with a college degree and this one.
That’s very cool that you’re able to balance two jobs. I’d luv that option, but I hear that flight attendants make good money after a few years.
