Hi all... I recently shared a hotel van with one of your pilots in JFK and found out that there are a handful of pilots commuting in for work from different international locations, via the "gateway" basing.
My wife is down in Rio, and I was wondering if any of the posters on here are commuting from S. America... or if any of you wouldn't mind forwarding an email contact on for me.
One of your HR ladies gave me a little better idea of how it "could" work with company supplementing cost on tickets, if they are flying you to start a trip at a location other than base.
Just wondering how this actually works in practice!

Thanks!

So did all the calls go out on the 5th? I took the test a month ago and scored in the high 80's. I am flying the 747-400 now for another ACMI carrier. Just curious if i will have to wait another month to get the call.

FYI: the new hotel in MIA does NOT have a coin laundry. But you do have breakfast included.

This has come up a couple of times recently, so here's a reminder to those wanting to get on here:

Bidding should be considered a chance to bid days on/days off only. We have no trip/bid protection. No matter what you've been awarded, Scheduling can and will change your line at their choosing. Seniority has no effect (ask me how I know!). Budget for guarantee and be pleasantly surprised if the company allows you to go over it. Layovers are an exercise in wishful thinking. By all means, bid a line with attractive layovers, but don't plan on it until you touch down. Saves a lot of frustration when you look at it this way, and it's hard to internalize if you're coming from the regionals, for example. That said, some flying tends to stay together, such as DHL routes, but I get bumped off those too. YMMV

I thought a laundry machine was required in all our bases? I'll have to look into this.

I was under the impression calls wouldn't be going out until the end of the month? Do you know anyone who was actually called for an interview?

I know that they have planned to interview on the 25th and 26th so I would imagine that they would have to give a few weeks notice. Also a post a page or two back said calls were going out on the 5th.

While breakfast is included you have to ask for the coupons, at least I did... Also, I had the early sims (0400 brief) so we missed breakfast first day, but were informed by another crew member that they will make you a box to go if you tell them ahead of time. I think it's a 6 PM cut off, but regardless, if you go to the front desk with your voucher and tell them you have an early sim, set up your transpo and tell them you would like breakfast to go. They will ask you the time you are leaving and have it ready for you in a small takeout box. Worked out pretty well for my partner and I the day of our PC.

Would be interesting if it is... We don't have one in ANC at the hilton either. There's one in the crew room for free, but when it was broken only place I could find was a short walk from hotel.
