MINNEAPOLIS (CNN) Flight attendant Michelle Hildebrandt has raised more than $40K to hire a flight attendant.
The airline says it will pay for the flight attendant to be trained at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, which is currently full, and to have her certification through an accredited flight school.
The flight attendant will then start working at the airport on Tuesday, October 30.
Hildebert has already raised $30,000 for the training and certification process.
The airline says the training will cost $150 per hour.
She’ll be paid $30 an hour starting Tuesday.
The campaign has raised $45,500 so far, with more than 2,000 supporters on Facebook and $6,000 from individuals.
