Since I fall into that category, Iím curious- does that sound accurate?
Never know until you apply.

Everything is on airline apps.

depends on experience level and what kind of hours. We have exceptions for different program, military, d225 etc.

Same interview just more scrutiny on times making sure all times are met and eligible.

Filling November 8th and dec 6th.

Home basing will take about 3-4 years as a captain to hold in the current state. Junior basing is BRO AEX SAT CVG in that order. FO can hold home basing in about 8-9 months. But not much movement CA wise. So be aware you will not see home basing anytime soon as a captain.

We donít have long call anymore. Itís either short call 2hrs outside of miami or 1.5 in Miami or airport reserve. 12 off a month.

Junior bases are 18on 12off expect that in BRO AEX SAT(day trips in these 3) and I believe CVG might have the same setup days wise. Every other base has different combinations PHX/IWA and MIA have more 5on 2-3off since more guys live in base and do day trips.

When youíre in an ICE base you will bid a reserve line basically and it gets filled out the week prior of every week as ICE populates the schedules. Youíll have hybrid lines of reserve and flying, everyone has a mixed line.
