Best of luck if you’re still interested in AAWH. Looking at your experience the pilot group would certainly be more than happy to have you.

To my knowledge Southern and Atlas recruiting goes to the same pool and then assigned a class based on your preference and Atlas needs, it could go to either side once classes are assigned. I was told this during the HR interview last week.

Because that's not how this works and you know it. When delta doesn't send you an invite, do you keep calling them like a crazy ex-girlfriend everyday asking what mistake they made?

They didn't make a mistake.....

How have upgrades been going recently on the 737? Has there been a lot of stagnation and increasing upgrade time or is it still hovering near 1yr?

We're getting 3 B777 guys next week to uograde on the 73, and instructors keep talking about a year. How much truth or for how much longer, that I don't know.

Jr 73/CA award is a 6/19 DOH, vacancies are published on the 15th of every month so could go a little more jr/sr in a few days.

Different strokes. Top end of the 73 list is pretty senior.

I got a TBNT email and then a few weeks later got an invite for interview at a place once. It happens.

I really don’t agree. If I interview with Delta and I get an email saying, sorry but since you don’t have a pilot’s license we can’t offer you the job. You bet I will be contacting them to let then know that I do. However suit yourself, if the guy wants to call them, then let him, if he can move on and think, I just did not get it and it was not a mistake, then let him too. I wouldn’t but to each its own.

Default Atlas / Southern

Take it as a sign from God and move on.

Mistakes happen? If you take that approach, they may be hiring the wrong pilot candidates by clicking on the wrong names!

Professionalism of the HR staff and the company you want to have a fruitful career with is important.

Again, take it as a sign. Be patient. Believe that things will work together for your good.
