Let me guess. Jfk?

New hires all scheduled to go to 737 I believe, not sure if those are still planned following the announced reduction to 2 percent growth, havenít heard otherwise though.

I'm tracking one class in early September and three in October. All should be on the 737.

And, you are correct, working at Alaska is infinitely better than ANY airline with DHL on it. That being said, weíre not comparing down. ďIndustry StandardĒ in the cargo/ACMI world is a handful of players with only two carriers (FedEx/UPS) with wages and workrules comparable to the legacy pax carriers.

Two truths can exist at the same.
We are a good place to work. AND
In almost every way we are sliding
further behind our contemporaries.

So, there are a lot of folks angry and with anger, in this industry, usually comes hyperbole, on message boards.
Even the furloughed pilots at ABX voted for it to get the severance pay....then *****ed about what was in the contract.

All silent as far as corporate comms re: pilot hiring windows.

I saw your post languishing today and thought Iíd help since no one else replied.

The reason no one replied is that nobody knows...

And there are a bunch who were expecting calls four to six months ago after the January meet & greet, hoping (but not especially optimistic) that they're not unceremoniously dumped out of the process and asked to reapply.

Nobody knows.

A position bid just closed with 48 vacancies.
42 SEA
6 LAX

Assuming no unplanned vacancies (like FOs leaving) those positions will be filled by new-hires in the upcoming classes in September and October. You never know what will be offered the first day of class, but this gives those waiting a picture of whatís out there.

I would look for more hiring at the beginning of 2019, albeit rather slowly compared to this year.

Just shooting from the hip.
