It doesn't mean that at all. Best of luck. Those seven LORs mean nothing if I don't get a call to join their team. The interview is what counted!

BTW, those seven were externals.... not Atlas rec's.

FlyBoyTex, I understand, and wish you the best of luck for you and yours. Atlas sounds like a great place to hang up the spurs from. C5 driver, huh? Thank you for your service. My Dad was USAF, F-86 Korea, F-105 Vietnam.

Can anyone expound on the reserve system at Atlas. What do the Reserve lines look like and how deep in the seniority do they run.

WAY OFF TOPIC FOR ATLAS…


I only have 1,150 TT and got called for an interview while down in MIA with a 135 operator foor an SIC spot. I have 2 suits, but was informed by my brother, who is a Director with another TRAVEL INDUSTRY COMPANY, that no one wears suits for an interview…so I wore BLACK DRESS SLACKS with a LONG SLEEVE DRESS SHIRT with a CHECK PATTERN, and BROWN LACE-UP DRESS SHOES AND BROWN BELT.
I got rejected and was told it was because the DO is a stickler for guys wearing suits…even though he looked like he’d pulled his shirt through a knot hole that morning.

Next time, I’m wearing my BLACK ON BLACK STRIPE CANALI with a WHITE FRENCH CUFF SHIRT and a POWER TIE…

We're all on reserve! Atlas uses PBS (but I've heard rumors it's going away under the new contract.) There are over 100 FOs based in JFK. There are 6 or 8 reserve lines in the March bid. They have 6 or 8 days in them you can mix with a short line. If you bid a regular line scheduling will add reserve days to your pattern to bring you up to 17 days for the month. If you requested 17 days in a row, they'll be added to the front or back of your line. If it's not 17 days of flying - very few are -and if you didn't check the commuter box, they'll just throw 4 or 5 days somewhere in the month, whatever it takes to bring you up to 17.

This month I got a 15 day line and they added two standby days at home at the begining. I think it had 5 operating legs. The pattern exploded before I even left the house. Went down to 4 legs. Not even the same starting city. I had the company send me to the plane a day early because the weather looked iffy for getting out on the second day of the pattern. I HAVE NOT FLOWN A SINGLE LEG OF THE AWARDED PATTERN. You just have to go with the flow. It's nothing to have half a dozen changes to your schedule. Not delays but you're not on that flight anymore. It went up to 6 operating legs and then dropped to 5. On the good side, my last operating leg (which replaced a deadhead leg) has disappeared so now I get to go home a day early.

It's not a normal airline.
