I should add a point or two.

We're now merged with GAL (parent of ATA). What this truely means is anyone's guess.

The company announced the replacements for the three UPS MD-11 that are going back at the end of the year. 2-3 B747 pax to cargo conversions and 2-3 DC-10 pax birds (ex NWA that were going to go to ATA but the mlitary won't let them fly them for a year). Bidding for the B747 has been announced and training slated to start in December.

The bottom of the senority list is gone. Retirements, guys going to UPS, and a few leaving for the majors have left us short. We are eating the shortage on the MD-11 till the UPS planes leave. I would guess that the new hires would be going to the -10 as FO. We have a long line of over 60 guys to fill the FE positions.

ATA is flying 2 DC10s now for the military - they do not have to wait a year - seen them in Shannon, DFW all the usual DOD locations - 2 more to come on line later - L1011s to retire when they come up for heavy checks

I am asking because soneone I know has an interview with World later this month. He is a PFE (not a pilot) and he was called for an interview 4 days ago.

I was just wondering what his chances are of getting the job. There is very little gouge for World and even less for PFE's. Given the fact that it is a 2 day interview, he and I were just kinda wondering what his chances are. His total time is low, but all of his time is on 727's or bigger.
