The last two new hire classes have all been assigned ORD E175, both FOs and DECs. We started Indoc on 4/3 and were told they couldnít take into consideration the preliminary bid award vacancies because it wasnít final even though they waited until 4/8 to assign us ORD. Itís quite possible DECs in the next few classes will be offered DFW and PHX as there appears to be vacancies, MIA CA is still senior. We are told we will likely receive another base assignment by the time we are done with IOE.

Do you know if the Dallas base is junior for new hire FO's and wait time between orientation and Indoc right now ?

You get 1-5 weeks off between orientation and Indoc depending on your class seniority. You want the time to memorize the study guide they give you.

On the final system bid dated 4/8, the bottom FOs all received Miami or Dallas and the last FO to get Phoenix was only about 25 from the bottom. The DECs hired in February were all able to hold DFW, PHX, or ORD. Some MIA FOs were displaced to MIA CA but I donít know their date of hires. I think everyone is likely to get awarded a new base within 3-4 months of hire, and the only senior position, MIA CA, isnít quite as senior as it used to be. I am just annoyed they only run system bids 4 times a year and the timing didnít work in my favor.

FWIW, there were displacements to Captain pretty much to the top of the list. This is an indication that they have run out of DECs to hire. Good news finally for those trying to get on as FO.

With the only exception being the 145 displacement bid being out a month early, Envoy has run bids quarterly the past five plus years. AA has been running bids quarterly but by contract only has to run three a year. SWA allows monthly base hopping, but there are places that run bids less frequently than quarterly. Timingís everything. Just the way things go.
