And now according to the investor call, they are not going to take all 10 A321NEOs for Virgin and currently working on it with the lessor. As the Alaska guy above said, their idea of growth is seats and not necessarily airframes. This year the primary growth vehicle is the EJet just by sheer numbers alone.

I have to echo OCCP. If you're brand new not on the list yet, why come here? If you want SEA or ANC try Delta or FedEx/UPS. PDX is about the only unique base. And all 3 legacies have an LAX base that is starting to actually go junior. I've been at VX for 5 years now and if AA/DL/UA call and successful interview, I'm gone. A little while ago I would not have made that statement but today it's a different story.
Best of luck to you in those interviews!

Crickets so far. But if their restless leg syndrome stops, I'll do my best

does anyone with no TPIC have a fighting chance of getting on?

Yes, you have a chance. But what's your background besides the 1100 121 SIC?

Yes, you have a chance. I was selected without 121 PIC time...(TT 7700, 5200 121 SIC). Job fairs and networking with AS pilots and employees outside of job fairs is very important and goes a long, long way. Best of luck!

Those interviewed a couple weeks ago are being told to expect a June class date. Of course, subject to change.

Hearing around the grape vine that Alaska has a severely depleted hiring pool, lowest it's ever been. Odd to hear such a thing but yet people's phones aren't ringing.

Any rumor control....?

Phone's are probably ringing, but those who are being called just don't post here.

Phones are ringing, classes are starting every 2 or so weeks with most people waiting 1-3 months to start.

They're stuck in an old mindset and are about 15 years behind the real legacies.


The real question is who would want to work for Virgin. When you work for and don't leave one of the lowest paid Airlines in the industry you can't really **** on people for wanting to work for Alaska. Also for no growth we sure are hiring a lot.
