Pretty sure 99% of ACMI pilots would give a resounding “yes.”

About 10 on and ten off or 17 straight. Fly about 30 hours a month to Amazon stations. Min guarantee or just better. Some lines credit more.

I'm sorry - I meant would be "able to qualify and go."

Atlas imho is now looking for guys who are either lower on the time or higher on the age.

Just my opinion.

It can be as intense or as mundane as you'd like, if I'm honest. You could end up doing two weeks I. Korea, then ten days off, then a week in Europe, then domestic etc.

Your block is around 40 hours a month.

Layovers can be at good hotels or soso places. We stay mainly at Hiltons and holiday inn level places.

Layovers are around 18 hours on average.

Granted I'm only speaking for CVG and based on my experience and what I bid for.

The last few 747 classes do not seem to agree with that.
Bunch of very high time heavy PIC expats, some military fighter guys, young, old, and most with 3000+ total time.

Trying to make sense of airline hiring usually does not end up making any sense.

Let's say I bid some mundane domestic US line. Could I end up doing two weeks on Korea? Or other changes that drastic?

Same on the 777, haven’t seen a wet ATP in quite some time. I’m sure that will continue to change as hiring elsewhere picks up.

You guys adopting more 73 FOs on the next bid award? Or that was a one time thing.

Yeah. Last week my schedule went from doing domestic mundane to a trip to Asia because of some sort of cancellation. Pretty uncommon on the 767 in ONT as far as I’ve seen. Schedule changes are the norm for the 747 though.
