    Welcome aboard. You may hear this from your manager upon hearing that you got the job or from your team leader if you were about to engage in a team project.
    Welcome on board. You may hear this from a flight attendant or a sailor when walking on board of an aeroplane or boat, respectively.

    There's no practical difference.

    You may hear this from a flight attendant or a sailor when walking on board of an aeroplane or boat, respectively.
    I don't think you mean this, since sailors and flight attendants normally don't say it when they board a ship or aircraft. :rolleyes:

    What I have heard from a boat owner or flight attendant is "Welcome aboard!"

    I've heard the same said by someone welcoming a new person to a project or a workplace.

    I don't believe I've ever heard "Welcome on board".

    You might hear the captain of an airline say to his passengers: "We'd like to welcome you on board flight CX633 to Penang today."
