Smile Many Thanks---Fingers and Toes Crossed

Game Day is approaching early this year. Interview later in the month.

This has been a very lengthy process for me. Many know that I was without my medical last year, so I count my blessing to be back in the air and to have this incredible opportunity. Never giving up actually pays dividends.

So thank you to the many who I have chatted with on this board and have provided great information. I will keep up that part and continue to help other pilots when I can.

I hope to have more favorable information about getting wet soonest.

Fair winds...V

Got a call for the interview today. My schedule is 2 weeks on/2 weeks off and the interview was smack dab in the middle of my rotation (we dont have vacation or PTO) so I unfortunately had to defer. I was told they were interviewing in October and I'd receive a call with those dates.

Adding to that news:

Most junior 767 CA hired 01/11

Most junior 747 CA hired 07/10

16 more retirements to go in 2015

25 retirements in 2016.

Total pilots as of 7/30/15 = 1128 (class date 07/20/15)

ANC new hire FO's hired 01/15 have been able to bid out of ANC to CVG.

The latest rumors are that that the company will be approaching the union to negotiate contractual "fixes" that may encourage new hires to stay instead of bolting at the first opportunity.

The "fixes" will have to be pretty substantial to make that happen. A good start would be prohibiting the scheduling and travel departments from violating the current (weak-a$$) contract on a regular basis.

At the most recent pizza party, we heard the talks were a joke. Company is making no substantive effort to fix anything, and thinks they can cover anything by throwing it to the OT/VX crowd.

So far it's working, plenty of takers. They laugh at how easy we are to volunteer.
