Despite some pretty economically troubled times, it appears that employment prospects for airline workers are the best they've been in post 9-11 era.
It's a little too soon for a full scale celebration, as there are still plenty out-of-work former airlines employees, and the increase in jobs will certainly not pick up all the slack. Additionally, the salary scales have been slashed and burned, meaning the jobs that are available will be at greatly reduced salaries.
You need a score card to keep track of which airlines are hiring and which are laying off workers. Although it's hard to get an accurate assessment, if you're looking to join the airline industry, this may be a good time to do so.
