John could fly a Dash-8 up its own a$$.....Sucks as a manager but a quality stick....Carlos is a paper pilot.. no flying skill and has never really flown the line in the 737...A little as an FO and not a day as a captain

Apologies for the thread drift...
I agree. They should. Its the only way you get to know what is REALLY going on with your pilot group. Reading reports doesn't do the trick. The down side is that you become the "ready reserve" for crew scheduling if there's an empty seat that needs filling.

I spend more time on the line than in the office. Which, btw, is fine by me.

Reminds me of PM. 15 years in the office writing Turn Procedures. When he finally came back to the line he only flew the plane on blue sky days. Had him once take my flight from ANC-SEA for currency. Bet the F/O that PM would work the radio rather than fly. Won that bet.

Short answer: RTFT (it's a variation on RTFQ)

Longer answer: Alaska Air Hiring (which you could find going back only two pages in this thread)

Bookmark it on your phone. And periodically visit it.

I also recommend visiting this one. And bookmarking it higher on your list. https://www.deltajobs.net/pilots.htm

Default Whats the tone at Alaska these days?

Well I am almost *qualified and I am getting ready to put apps out. Probably Delta and Fedex. Maybe Alaska.... I am wondering what the morale and culture is like at Alaska these days? Also, what are their plans for growth? I know that they bought Virgin and that Delta is really competing hard for the PNW market. But I don't know much else.

I have never once been in their jump seat and I do not know anyone currently working there.

Also, is Seattle a impossibly senior domicile or pretty doable?

*qualified as in meet mins of 4 year degree and 1000 TPIC

Preparing for the avalanche of answers you're about to get...hunker down.

If you are tired of the 121 regional airline that you are currently flying for, and Alaska offers you a class date before you hear from FedEx or Delta than take it...It will look good on your resume and Alaska is a great stepping-stone airline. So go for it. Not much actual pilot growth here. The effect of the VA merger and the disposal of the Airbus fleet will dampen any forward movement.

Morale is pretty low. Newhires regularly get based in Seattle... it is our largest base so it has the most attrition, and would be a safe bet to assume that you could get Seattle based.
