You will get a SCDY line as a junior bidder. 17 days of whatever they want. JFK based doesn’t mean anything other than you’re based there. You won’t have overnights at home.

So it sounds like they send you to where they want you, so no start or end in base. Is that correct?
Thank you

All trips start and end in base. In the bid packets, in your monthly published schedule, in awarded Open Time, OE, Reserve, Secondary... all flying.

In JFK, on the 76, it will be a commercial DH to the Jet on day one and from the jet on the last day. This is because we have no operating flights out of JFK... for now. You can get ALT travel between your home and the Jet and not have to Gateway to or from JFK on your off days.

On the 74, expect to operate from JFK on Day 1, meaning you need to Gateway in the day prior on your off day. Once on the road, expect multiple schedule changes and be surprised when you fly your entire pattern as planned. Where your last operating leg lands is anyones guess, but you will operate into or have a DH scheduled back to JFK on your last day... unless you get extended. With seniority, you may be able to start with a DH on Day 1. You can always bid secondary for extra days off and perhaps avoid Gateway Travel, but you have to be happy with minimum guarantee.

It's been a minute for me, so I can't recall. Some of the other people here may be able to help out.

It was SSN, lower is senior at Southern. Not sure if Atlas does the same but I'd be surprised if they didn't given we were all (Atlas and Southern fleets) getting shuffled in together on the seniority list by DOH at that point.

Good question. I'd be curious to know as well. Accepted my CJO in mid November and still waiting. Anyone here who recently received a class date?

I got my CJO early November and started April 10. What fleet was your first choice?
