copa, the only airline hiring in South America?

I would often check this section and the only active discussion is about C.A, any other jobs, airlines to talk about? That's all.

Good to hear, just unusual that being such a big region the only talk we hear is about copa.

Probably because it's the only airline that hire expats. All the other ones require that applicants have the right to live and work in their respective countries.

I guess Lan Chile allows expats to work. Anyways I know nothing about the current hiring situation.

Nothing changed.

Salary for FO around 4,5k USD.
Around 85-95h per month with 8-10 days off.
Airline operations are organized, but human resources is a mess.
Panamanians have preference for everything

Most expats stay around 2/3 years then leave to better places.
Copa is good place to start the carreer, but not a place to have a carreer.
