Management testified in the arbitration that scope will limit them from buying JetBlue or Hawaiian, and running them as a separate airline. Word is they also said that at the negotiating table, and that that is their ultimate goal. The air group would own JetBlue, but run Alaska separate in the Pacific Northwest, and grow JetBlue as the larger airline. If management wanted to they could order 100 more 737 or airbus and place them with another airline to fly as Alaska, and there is nothing we can do to stop it. Like I said before, avoid this place like the plague.
Thanks for agreeing with me. Because from day one, they'd be better off at AK/VS than at regional at $60-70K. They'll get a grown up type rating and by the time they have a chance to get really bitter, they'll move on.

Next year 1st year FO pay goes to 89.89/hr. Assuming reserve first year at 79 hr guarantee, that's 85,216/yr. Throw in per diem, annual profit share, some other overages above 79 hrs, and you can see newhire first year FOs break $100k. I don't see this place struggling to attract pilots, at least not for 2018-2021.

As far as I understand the company is still offering hotels. I'm not sure it's in the experiment phase anymore. All of the classes since July have been getting hotels throughout training (except for OE).

They dumped the 4 year degree requirement. Interesting.

It shouldn’t be interesting. They want to hire people who can’t leave.

That seems to have been Spirit and Frontier's modus operandi for the last half decade at least.

Does AS typically make calls during an open window or wait for the window to close then call people?

Anyone know if the question of Boeing Vs Airbus on the app is a final choice or will that be determined in INDOC?
