A better reply, yeah, I'm still waiting as well. Interviewed 8/26. I think the calls will be out soon, hang in there!

Forget 777s company can buy 4 -400s for one 777 with higher GTOWs. Imo No 777s til oil is <$90.

Oh Atlas probably won't buy them. We'll be flying someone else's 777's.

CMI; it's the new paradigm for airlines of the future.

Read further:
CBA 24.K.8 = During the 12-month period following the delivery of the first aircraft that is New Equipment as defined herein, a Bidding Freeze shall not prevent a non-probationary crew member from being awarded a higher-paying Position Vacancy in the New Equipment.

Thus, DC8 Driver, a seat-locked 767 CA can go to 777 CA, but a seat-locked 747 CA cannot bid down.

Does anyone know if Atlas will attend the job fair hosted by Aero Crew Solutions in Ft. Lauderdale this November? Thanks!

Interviewed on the 26th and I'm in the 767 class on the 28th of Sept... Anyone else? Can't wait to start, although I'm not a big fan of 36th street! But then again, not many are!

Congratulations!

As for 36th St., just bone up on Frogger.

Also, two words for you: Bryson's wings. You can thank me later.

A note about Bryson's. Many years ago, a friend brought a young man named George Lucas into the establishment. Understand that in those days, Bryson's was the freight dog hangout and it wasn't unusual at all for an operator to pop in the door and say, "I need two guys to fly a DC-8 to Peru and back. Any takers?" A couple of old grizzled characters in the shadows would say, "Aw, what the hell. Sure". This became the inspiration for Director Lucas' scene in the first Star Wars movie of the Cantina on Tatooine. Fitting, wouldn't you say?
