HONOLULU -- More than 5,000 people applied for 175 flight attendant positions at Hawaiian Airlines, a record for the company.
Lines spilled out the doors at the Blaisdell Exhibition Hall, everyone eager to land a job. The interviewing process is broken up into three steps, and most of the applicants won't get a job.
Amanda Hancock flew in from Maui, hoping to follow her mother's flight attendant career.
"I've grown up flying with her. (I) love the airport, love airplanes, love people, so I thought, 'Why not take it to the sky?"' Hancock said.
