Leaving for training end of the month whatís the time line for training still having three week breaks in between training? Also howís reserve life looking in Seattle longer than 6 months?

While it's hard to predict the future, I doubt you would spend more than 2-3 months on reserve in Seattle (if that). SEA is short on FO's at the moment. Can't speak for length of training currently as each class fluctuates between 2 months and 4 months.:confused:

30 days after date of hire they are eligible for Delta. AA I believe is a little longer, and is also only available if based in LAX. The delay for AA may be simply attributed to the fact that you aren't LA based from day 1

Question about reserve with compass, how do the days off work? Can you bid a bunch of days off in a row, or do you only get a few at a time sporadically throughout the month?

You can bid for the days you want off and layer them. There are two options M (must have days off) and P (Preferred days off). Essentially if you bid All M days and PBS can't give it to you, it will go to the next layer. If you have to have 2 days off but would like an extra or two you can bid PMMP so PBS won't dump the layer if I can't give you the preferred days off but it can give you the two must have days off. You can also swap RSV days if the grid is green which I think for LAX and SEA, it generally is as of now. I have had no problem swapping days around and going from 6-7 off in a row to 9-10 days off.
