You can have multiple ins and it can still take years to get a call, if the call ever comes at all.

Just chill. You will live happier.
I am in thr same age group. For last 5 years i have been applying i have been hearing :
- why havent you upgraded yet? (Clueless about 2008)
- dont even bother applying without ay least 1000 tpic.

Now, all the people that started 10-15 years after me are employed by Alaska. I dont think alaska likes our age group

I don't think that's the case. There are plenty of 50ish getting hired there. I personally know a guy around that age who just recently finished training at Virgin America. There were a few in the group I interviewed with this past week for Virgin America. I don't know whether they got an offer or not. I did not.

Some people just don't do the airline-style interview well. I'm one of them.

I did the same thing, lots of prep, felt the interviews went well, but still no offers. I havenít been called by AS to interview, Iím sharing my experience from previous interviews last year.
The new HR model is extremely frustrating in regards to perception of our profession and itís roadblocks of the last decade, hang in there.....

That is really frustrating

I came from corporate / charter and whenever I would talk to the Big 3 they would ask me if I have considered working for Skywest because they really like hiring Skywest pilots. I had spent 3 years at ExpressJet previously, so had regional experience and was a light jet Captain in Part 91 and 135... it is what it is. Alaska was the only airline that saw my corporate and charter experience as a positive - good customer service skills.

Anyway, that was a tangent I didn't mean to go down... it's frustrating to try and see what these companies are looking for, but in my new hire class at Alaska we had two people over 50 years old and two people in their late 40's, so don't give up hope yet.

Clueless hiring from a clueless airline. Sounds about right
