Any idea what base is the most likely to get for new guys?

How much did the pay scale change with the latest contract? Anything to year one?

According to my AS buds, most go to ANC, but some have gotten LAX right out of the box. They say you have to wait a couple bids to get to SEA, though PDX is a possibility.

Actually, I got SEA in my first bid. No one has made it into PDX for a while. One can get LAX but most do go to ANC. Things are always changing of course!

There's about a 20/80 split in each class of LAX vs. ANC base. Getting your preferred base is subject to timing: If hired during a base position bid, there is a chance you can get to SEA right away. Worst case scenario: plan on ANC base for 12-18 months.

Worst case scenario plan for DTW or JFK! :eek:

Latest picture shows newhire vacancies in LAX, SEA and ANC. PDX is senior and looks to remain that way.

The long tours in ANC seems to be disappearing. The company actually hired some folks from there who want to be there...go figure.

The last couple bids have had vacancies in all domiciles BUT PDX.

1st year pay right now is:

$52.95

as of 01APR2014, it will be:

$53.74

Reserve guarantee of 79 hrs/month and perdiem $2.15/hr.

Is not using IE 8 a deal breaker? Since I don't own a PC (Mac user) I started the process on Chrome then intended on submitting from IE at work but hit submit button instead of save. Am I screwed? I got an email from AS saying it was submitted but there was no content in email. Only the subject line saying application was submitted. Thoughts?
