We’re pleased to announce that Delta is providing an enhanced path to Delta for SkyWest pilots, beginning in September. The new commitment includes a guaranteed resume review for at least 20 SkyWest pilots per month – more resumes than any other non wholly-owned Delta Connection carrier. The provision of a guaranteed commitment for SkyWest pilots is a strong improvement over the lottery hiring system they currently utilize, and gives SkyWest pilots who want it a distinct advantage.

And at Delta after the 2 second review of the resumes they will be filed in our exclusive round filing system.

Delta is very environmentally sensitive and is committed to recycling all paper products.

SkyWest gets a distinct advantage? I’d agree if they were the only DCI carrier to get this. The fact is they aren’t.

With 4621 pilots, only upto 19 years for a new hire to get their resume reviewed!

So how does this compare on a per capita/percentage basis? After all we have more pilots than any other regional. How is it decided what resumes are reviewed?

That’s assuming all SkyWest pilots will have Delta apps submitted.

At least it is only going out to three carriers from I heard. Us, Republic and Endeavor, but I'm pretty sure Endeavor already had something like this in place.

So 20 resumes a month at lets say 3000 of our 4600 pilots is 150 months or 12.5 years. The difference between us and the other regionals involved is 100% of our pilots get it.. so lets say RP gets 10 a month and only 600 of there pilots. Thats 60 months or 5 years... (not sure Republics number or GoJets/Compass)

How is it that DL will be able to review another airlines pilots reliability record, customer service score and CRM (??) then apply appropriate extra credit to your resume?

I know when there is a delay passengers get a email. One of the questions is did the Captain make a announcement? And DL can see the crew names in there computer.. remember last year in CQ ground they showed us the list of the top Captains..

Ya

In CQ we didn't really call them "top" pilots, we called them something that would get me banned here. (think knee pads)

Suffice to say the ones doing it are the kind of ego maniacs that love to be in the lime light, kind of like the richards that wear their uniform to the grocery store hat and all.

If that's what Delta wants, then the chance of me getting on is zero. But to me most of the guys at the big D look like they just smelled a fart when they walk in the terminal.

Delta has moved more pilots from its regionals to the mainline than any other airline by a huge margin. American and United combined are not even close over the last 5 years.

SkyWest went to UA and made the case that them hiring too many Skywest pilots at once wouldn’t be good. They listened.

And Delta, told to me directly by a former Chief Pilot.

All this is just a dog and pony show to get people in the front door at SkyWest.

You are a number!

Nothing more!

Yeah. I meant to say UA and Delta. It appeared UA played ball a little better. Mind you this was 2012 when I found out.

Any friend of yours who works for DAL can trigger a resume review by sending an email.

Yes. DAL compiles this data and definitely checks it when you interview (maybe before they call you?). If you've been flying DCI for a while, you will have an IROP customer satisfaction track record relative to your DCI peers.

This happened in '99 (with DAL), and I have no doubt SGU would plead the same case today. And it's not illegal to agree not to poach from your business partners (it is illegal to make such an agreement with competitors, ie silicon valley).
