There you go. The phone will ring when it rings, and that doesn't mean that it means anything.
Wow, well at least you made it. Thanks for the reply.

Not sure how I gave you that impression, but I have not made it. I've spent the better part of this year expecting a call for an interview based on what I was told at the meet & greet in January. The only thing I've heard since then was "please reapply" when the application window was open last month. I'll be surprised if I get another call.

Sorry misunderstood.

If you donít mind, how many hours did you have when they called? I can pm if you want.

Above a certain threshold numbers aren't that important imo.

Just had to put that out there.

My statement is not based off facts, just on what I observe flying up and down the west coast. Every airport I land at has significantly more Southwest aircraft over Alaska airplanes, with the exception of a few cities.


Alaska has done a good job in the past year or two growing their route structure (thanks Skywest!) so that a passenger doesn't always have to go through Seattle to get somewhere, but many of our destinations still require a visit to Seattle.

Oh come on Biz, you know OCCP has attacked the old AS pilots as weak and spineless since the day the acquisition was announced. Every post is about his hate for all things Alaska, that this the worst place to work and anyone coming here or wanting to come here is a fool. He doesn’t get an atta-boy for throwing out one little qualifier like that. Besides, I’m just playing along, tit for tat. Rattling the cage a little. Really, no I’ll will towards him or any new “team mates” heII, now that the list is done, we may even get to fly together and bitc* about the company, together, over a niiiice loooong 4 day...yippee!!

Now that’s the spirit!! Haven’t you seen the twilight zone episode where the whole town has to think happy thoughts or the ruler takes them away? We work in that town
