AJT is a different airline with different owners. The Caribbean stuff was always heavily subsidized by oil equipment going into a few stations. Heard most of that is gone. The rest were probably money losers. Back in the old days, AJT didn't have customers per say, they had "hostages". The Cargo bazaar that was Miami (including other operators) would take freight and either hold it until it there was enough to warrant a flight, or possibly even send it when it was promised. It was not uncommon to deliver Christmas trees in January. Electronics and cell phones? One time a full container disappeared driving the one block from the warehouse. A lot of businesses probably thrived on 72nd Ave. from pinched goods.

With the new IBT contract, AJT seems to be able to attract people with long haul and ETOPS experience. They are finding a niche and generating money. I hope all goes well for them.

I think until we open more virtual bases probably yes

True! AJT was once part of the now infamous “MIA corrosion corner”

Anyone gotten any response from their last application window? It is closed now, but I know it was open through the end of April.

Is it possible for a new hire to only do the island turns?

What do you guys normally credit per month?

Truly hard to say
First you don’t bid for trips or lines, just days off
Second AJT is shifting its flying from the Caribbean and Central America to overseas flying (email come out yesterday saying 52% of our flying in July will be ETOPS)
While we don’t bid for trips or lines, the temporary bases (currently Sacramento and Cincinnati)were the non Caribbean flying is done is normally by bidding and goes fairly senior, so there is a chance junior people will be “stuck” flying the Caribbean out of Miami
It’s just hard to say for how long things will stay like that
Base pay is 60 hours, Miami based lines have around 40 hours (+/-) and anything you pick up from open time is above the 60 hours.

12 minimum in 28 days
Sometimes you might get 14 or 15 days scheduled off, but mostly you just might end up not working some of your scheduled reserve days
I had one month I only worked 6 days but only had 12 days off
