Still 5 or 6 years after it was initially promised.
Safe to assume itís on merit only, not by seniority?

Seniority, but you have to have 2 years experience as a Swift captain to be eligible

Has the pay for the 767 been discussed, approved, announced?
Also, how is Swift planning to use these 767's? Charter, DOD, Cargo, Amazon??? I would guess that the type of flying would determine the type of schedule.

No rates yet.

Iím assuming DHL for CVG and GSO will most likely do any pax ops/VIP. So far still 12 off

Thank you ask for speaking freely about the work conditions here. I game been getting emails to upset my resume to possibly get an interview. It seems a bit tough at Iaero. Iím really hoping these are old war stories from years ago but can assume that they are not. Do you all fly immigrants back to their country or something?

Thanks Mexipilot84, sounds like classes may still be a month or two away for the 767 line pilots and new hires, if the initial class of instructors are still in class / sims now. Any idea how many crews per aircraft... 5 or 6 maybe?
