Median income for flight attendants in the United States is $37,700 per year. However, you need to keep in mind that because of the seniority system, entry level income will be less than that, and it will increase over time with more time spent in the industry.
According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median annual wage for flight attendants was $56,640 in May 2019. The median wage is the wage at which half the workers in an occupation earned more than that amount and half earned less. The lowest 10% percent earned less than $29,270, and the highest 10% percent earned more than $80,940.
Flight attendants receive an allowance for meals and accommodations while working away from home. Although attendants are required to purchase an initial set of uniforms and luggage, the airlines usually pay for replacements and upkeep. Flight attendants generally are eligible for discounted airfare or free standby seats through their airline. I wish you much success on your journey. Best of luck to you!
