That is a real question on the application? Are you being serious?

Yes it is.. Although I am thinking, eventually the plan is to go all Boeing... they will let the Airbus leases mature and then phase them out.. at least that is what I am hearing. I think at the end of the day, it comes to the base you want. On the Airbus side, you may be able to hold LAX easier than if you were Boeing. Just my thoughts.

Question JFK base?

Are new hires going to be allowed to go to JFK under this new job announcement for Alaska/Virgin? If not now, how long until one can go to JFK as a new hire reserve or line holder? Are there any rumors of any additional Northeast bases on the horizon? Thanks!

Dude this is a west coast airline, plan on that and only that. The only way the east is going to open up is through merger or acquisition.

You mean like the one that already happened?? The one with an east coast base already in place?

You’d have a chance, you’d need to do something to stand out like go to meet-and-greets or have internal recs to stand out, but I think if you’re currently flying those times would give you a chance.

Yes, you can get JFK base right out of training. Right now plan on being on reserve for a 1.5 years but it's dropping. No plans of another east coast base. Alaska justification for a base needs a minimum of 150 people, we currently have 112-120. So my guess they will add more boeing departure next year. Who knows & good luck!

The following is cooy and pasted from AS's job vacancy. Has a lot of good information. I recommend it.

Boeing Fleet may be based in: ANC/LAX/PDX/SEA. Airbus Fleet may be based in: LAX/JFK/SFO

Must be comfortable with a domicile in Seattle, WA; Los Angeles, CA; Anchorage, AK; Portland, OR; San Francisco, CA; or New York, NY (JFK).

THE LOCATION
Must be comfortable accepting a domicile in Anchorage, AK; Los Angeles, CA; New York, NY; Portland, OR; San Francisco, CA; or Seattle, WA.
