7⟩ Why working as an airline pilot for our airline instead of another one?

Here is a good question eh, why them? Don't worry, you now know that you will get this question and Internet will certainly help you to have an answer! I remember going on Wikipedia to learn first about the airline itself and how big it was. I went into the very beginning until nowadays. The airline survived to the crisis in 2008 and that was one of my key point (job stability)! Does the airline bought some new airplanes? Does the conditions are good enough? Is that a big friendly family atmosphere? Find out at least three relevant points and explain why you want to work there and nowhere else!
