I think my only hope is going to every job fair they're at.
You meet the minimums as per their website but unfortunately I don't believe you're competitive. The FO's that I've known have got calls at around 6000 total time. It may be a bit less if you're a captain, not sure. They can afford to be picky right now I'm sure due to a lot of résumés on file. Good luck and keep plugging away!

Exactly what I figured.

Certainly keep updating though. Keep adding to your resume. I'd keep going to conferences too. Persistence may pay off.

High time may be an issue too!
I have 19,000+ and still no call.
They probably figure that I have my apps in the big 3, so it is not worth calling me!
Well, OK, the fact that I have no heavy, or no 121 time might have something to do as well!...

Any idea how long it would take for a 744 NH to hold MIA or any other base on the east coast?

I was able to bid MIA within a year...I don't know how much earlier I could have bid it because I didn't change my bid to MIA until I was in CVG for a while and was looking for a change.

Any idea of how senior PAE or JFK are as bases? What sort of trips do those bases fly? Thanks

Bottom F/O's in both bases are just over two years on property. PAE was set up for LCF flying but they get sent all over and other pilots are sent to PAE to fly the LCF. JFK is all over the place to start.

JFK or MIA would take about a year to a year and a half depending on exactly where you fell with the 767 seat locks expiring. It's a crap shoot now a days because you may end up on the 767 for 3 years before being able to hold the 747. Then you'd probably be able to hold everything except for PAE and IAH.

I've been here 3.25 years and still can't hold IAH yet. After 3.25 years I'd be in the bottom 20% at MIA and the bottom 33% at JFK. I'm top half in HSV and close to the top 50% in CVG. For the West Coast guys I'd be bottom 20% in LAX, the last guy at PAE, and top 20% in ANC.
