Part of your preparation before your interview should be researching the company that interviews you. This is because you may be asked specific questions about the airline. The recruiters would like to know that you have a basic understanding of the company you will be working for. They may ask questions about senior management, the aircraft fleet, destinations and parts of the world the airline serves. Knowing this information will also be helpful when it comes time during the interview for you to ask questions. Knowing a bit about the company and inquiring about corporate specifics will certainly impress your interviewers. Unfortunately, all this information is not likely to be in one place. You may have to dig through the airline website to find the information, or you can check out Wikipedia to gets some facts about an airline that interests you.
