Default Info on National Airlines

Does anyone know anything about National Airlines? I think they have a few 747ís and 757ís but I havenít been able to find too much information about them. I know a guy there and he seems to like it but Iíd like to get a different perspective before putting an app in.

Iím currently a FO at a regional, a couple months from being eligible to upgrade and honestly Iím pretty happy here.. Just trying to plan my next move in regards to upgrading or going somewhere else to get some heavy international time.

They'll probably hire you. But without any TPIC...you'll be stuck. And that's not a place where you want to be stuck.... Stay and take your upgrade is my advice.

Ok- not a personal attack, but youíre better than National Airlines. Every airline on the planet needs a warm body. Donít sell your self short !!

Heavy Intl time- is just that. Delta is pulling gays and gals wet behind the ears at regionals. No need for ďheavy intlĒ time anymore

You "know a guy" who works there, and what you know about the company is that "they have a few 747's and 757's?" You're considering applying there?

Used to be that one did his homework, first.

Of course, if you know a guy...

Yes, John, hence the title of the post ďinfo on National AirlinesĒ.

No ****?

If you "know a guy," and all you got is that you *think* the company has "a few 747's and 757's," then either you didn't ask, or you don't know a guy very well.

Asking a question on an internet board isn't really in depth research; someone seeking to apply might have done a bit more leg work than to "know a guy" and for the sum total of his knowledge at this point to be that you *think* the company has "a few 747's and 757's." Truly underwhelming.

Have you read the NTSB report regarding the Bagram crash? Maybe you should.

Stay at your regional and upgrade. You will make more money and your QOL will be much better than at National.
