Is it true you can live anywhere you would like and they will fly you to the airplane? If so, why are they listing bases in IAD and SEA? Does anyone know?
Yes. it's true, more so for pilots however. Most F/As don't live at those bases. The bases are "on paper" primarily, a place to figure your pay from.

There are a few more details for F/As, but it works to their advantage.
Disco, thanks for the reply. My cousin is interested in applying. I guess her question is does a new hire have to commute to SEA or IAD to start a trip or does World Airways "airline" them to the airplane ?(in whatever city it may be located). (I had heard that's what they do for pilots)

Also the website does not mention pay scales, etc. Is that info. available to the public?
