Quicker to hold a line in LAX on 737 or 320? Also, which has more trips that are out of SNA?

The Alaska window to apply only opens twice a year, usually.


As to the question about breaking guarantee on reserve, I have never been used that much, however I haven’t been on reserve that much, and I was 737 LAX based so got used less. I would probably fly about 50 hours a month. If you wondering about pay purposes you can select that you would like a trip and they might assign it to you first, which would help by getting you a little more per diem. You can also pick up open time trips on days off to pad the paycheck, as anything picked up on days off is in addition to the 79 hour short call guarantee. Not something I would do during contract negations because the stresses of negotiations mean I need more time at home with the family to decompress.

Yesterday’s class had 6 SFO A320, 2 LAX A320.

Upcoming classes will have vacancies on the A320 & B737, as the 2020-02 bid closed with vacancies on both fleets. Which will be available to specific classes? Unknown, and up to management to dole out as they build their training plan.

People that were interviewed and hired yesterday were told to expect end of October to early November for class dates, so around 2 months.
