Default Newhire Class Drop Today

In a "someone ought to..." moment, I thought I'd try and start a new thread just for drops. Might make it easier for those interested to get the latest.

So- if you are in todayís class, or know of someone that is, what were the available aircraft and bases. Also, what order did they the bid go?

Thank you.

They need to figure out a way to make aircraft selection be a bit more fair and randomly based on SSN. This is unfair to the 50 something dude who gets NYC when the 26 year olds get LAX.

You just derailed this thread and reintroduced the same ridiculous topic that ruined the other, much longer DAL Class Drop thread.

Bravo.

I thought it was on purpose seeing as how this thread already exists. Made me chuckle.

I agree with the OP that it needs to be restarted. So many thread drifts that itís lost its purpose, IMHO.

The new thread should be about age discrimination since it's such a heated topic. Drop thread was fine.

Why?

The 50 year old should have made better life choices.

Age discrimination is a terrible solution.

The 50 yr old most likely is retired military. Are you saying that was a bad life choice.
