It is. That would run you $1.5m in SF

I asked on another thread, but what is the proportion of newhires going to Airbus vs Boeing? How is that determined?

Has there been much fleet transfers among existing pilots on both sides?

Future I'm guessing mostly 737. More retirements + they are retiring some 320's. Last class was split between the two fleets.

No fleet transfers yet as they had a system bid 7 months in advance, 1 day prior to the seniority list integration.

If you're super senior and are in LA or want SF you might bid to the dying airframe fleet. For others it will just be a waiting game .

Word is that bid has now been filled. No more interviews/ hiring until we have another seat&domicile bid. There was reference to late summer early fall for interviews to start again. Logic would have a Position Bid around then as well. Effective date likely late fall/early winter.

United takes 44 new in 2019 & 2020 at least that many.

Default For anyone interested in coming to Alaska....

First.... It’s NOT a bad job. Good equipment. Good co-workers. Good first year pay. Etc.

IF you live or want to live in base..... increase that job satisfaction by a few more points.

However, before you come here, if at ALL possible, get a copy of our contract and do a comparison on pay and work rules, (vacation, reserve etc) so that you know what you’re getting into here. Compare it to other major airlines hiring as well as regionals, because by comparison we are 5/6 behind our competitors by almost every measure, and as far as work rules we even fall behind some regionals. Don’t assume “Legacy, been around for 83 years, history of great pilot/management relationship, ALPA, making great profits, so it must be comparable to the others.”.. cause it’s not. And, as for thinking it’ll change anytime soon, there are some major hurdles for that happening, namely a VERY aggressive stance toward the pilot group by management, combined with at least a third of the union that is either to beat down or straight out not interested in seeing change (because they’ve got what works best for them. )

Anyway, if you get here and decide to stay, for the first year, till you’re off probation, KEEP YOUR HEAD DOWN! There is ZERO contractual protection for you and the company can absolutely fire you for whatever reason they decide. After that, get involved in being part of the solution, while at the same time, demonstrating daily through your professionalism that we deserve better.

Choose wisely. 👍🏼👍🏼

That's true anywhere, and it's happening surprisingly often at all the big six...

If you're a stereotypical millennial, it's not like the slacker culture at the regionals, it's old-skool and it's that way for a reason. Turn your phone off in the sim and in the cockpit. Do what you're told, without asking why or giving any pushback unless it's a safety concern. Shave, iron your shirt, be on time, even if it's a really sucky early show. No soul patch or mutton chops. Study hard for recurrent.

If you're an older ex-RJ CA, take the GD fourth stripe off and leave it off. Try not to talk too much about how you did it at the last airline unless it's a really funny story. Same thing for Colonels, although being new to airlines they tend to adapt to the learning mode better.

Sound hard? Suck it up for one year and you'll still have a job.
