This is good to know. I did not anticipate hearing that approx. 90% of deadheads are typically on Atlas aircraft. From previous threads it sounded as though international deadhead in business was more common. What are most of you guys seeing? Is the above scenario very common, or not at all??

I had stopped dwelling on it and taken this forums advice to relax and be patient and only after I submitted to that frame of mind, I got the call, so like I said, invaluable advice
When are you interviewing?

I submitted in August, also stopped thinking about Atlas and was completley shocked when they called. They called around Sept 28ish, interview in October. I was told this was the last INTERVIEW class of 2012. Not sure what is on the horizon for training classes.

I thought I read a few pages back that there's a training class starting up mid-October. Could be wrong on that.

As far as interviews...yeah, HR told me that they don't plan to hold any more interviews for the rest of the year. Here's hoping for 2013.

Unless there is something at the beginning of next year, I imagine they more than likely be at the WIAI conference again.
Thanks for the plethora of posts. It does seem that the face to face is valuable, which has been my experience everywhere I've worked. I'm hoping to work out a visit to the CP's office here in ANC.

Good luck with the interview!

Let me clarify ... 90% of MY deadheads are on Atlas planes. Some guys have made the gazillion mile platnum diamond club this year on Delta and United.

The deadhead situation is different for every base and even the lines within that base. Some bases deadhead very little. Some a lot. Some mostly on domestic airlines, some mostly on company, and some on foreign. For me, recently, it has been on our freighters.

And, yes, when it is full, it kind of sucks.

If it's the Comfort Inn by the Atlas building, it's a quick/easy walk to the interview and a free breakfast.

If you get in time the day before for dinner, the Thai place across from the Atlas building was pretty good IMO.
