Default NCA contract work

I read the post about hiring on with Hawaii air service to fly for NCA out of JFK, AMS and SFO but can anyone tell me how secure these contracts are and what can be expected for upgrade time. There is no mention of pay for CA but the FO rate seemed decent?? I have read most of the posts about contract work so mostly intereted in just the above type of info. If TACAMO reads this please say hi to Stefan next chance you get. He moved into my house in HNL. Thanks

Hi all!

I would like to know more about NCA as well, would any kind souls out there care to enlighten me?

What will happen to the guys and gals who sign up on the B742 when the aircraft is phased out, will they be offered jobs on the B744 then?

Any chance of joining directly onto the B744?

Are the salary quoted after-tax?

Thanks a lot
