They are hiring? Only place I have been able to find to apply is at Horizon. After all the news articles about how many people they planned to hire I thought the mailbox would be wide open.

Yeah there's hiring going on. But all the new hires are being put into a pool to swim around in until at least July from the most recent email from HR.

Keep monitoring the window. Classes to resume in mid July and there will be 1-2 classes every month through December.

I think it would be a while, not sure how long. I'm LAX based and March was my first month I was able to bid and got an Open Flying line (a line created with whats left over after the normal bid). I have two weekends off on my OF line (where I finish before noon on Sat and have Sunday off), and 14 days off.

My fellow classmates who went to Seattle will be on reserve for a bit.

I have noticed that in LAX for March it is very difficult to trade trips and our reserve coverage seems to always be low so dropping trips isn't happening either. Also just not a lot in open time. Seattle seems to have much more variety and options in the schedule.

You need to get ahold of an AS bid package. On second thought, keep those eyes away it might defer the pain. Several 12 day off lines.

You can always make more money... you can never make more time, especially with loved ones.

???!
That's a regional schedule. At least it's a QX one.
Please tell me that's an aberration.

It's amazing how horrible their schedules are. 85 years of being a "legacy", yet the schedules are worse than regionals. Time to put our foot down in the jcba. A 40% pay increase won't make up for 4-6 more days of work.
