79 on the seniority list for 2019.

48 since Mar 4 class. So averaging 16 per class every week now. If they start 1 class per week starting yesterday, that will bring 64 per month.

For someone on the list right now, that means their relative seniority will grow by 4.4% a month just by growth. If XJT keeps sending 20 per month to UA and 20 to others (retire, or other airlines), you'll move up by 104 spots a month - a relative move of *7% per month*.

To hire 600 as repeatedly stated they will, that means they will need to keep up this pace for the rest of the year - 8 months and change.

If that happens, someone on the bottom of the list now will have a seniority close to 50% by Christmas. Upgrade times will drop through the basement. I doubt anyone hired in March will have to fly weekends or holidays if they don't feel like it.

I know this is pilot math, but if this is even close to what actually happens, this will be one heck of a wave.

Would you recommend ExpressJet? Trying to decide which regional to go to, NY based. Seems like there's a lot of growth right now at Xjet. Also, is there a decent chance to move on with United with the CPP?

Yes! Its a GREAT time to be at XJT for new hires, but its also incredible that 25% of EACH new hire class at UNITED is contractually reserved for XJT CPP Pilots too, the immediate future is blinding for new hires with almost unlimited flight time available, upgrades falling FAST and around $50/hr in pay but the distant future with the CPP is bright as well- this pilot group negotiated a really solid contract for the pilots and are talking about making QOL even better going forward... this is going to be a great wave to ride for awhile.

6 months ago, I would have said no. Today, I say yes. If you're NY based, EWR is our junior base with, as or right now I believe, the most junior CA. I've heard rumors of an enhanced CPP that will allow more people to get the options to move onto UAL.

I really want all these things to be true, but seems to me that so far it's mostly good thoughts, opinion and expectations rather than facts.

And I say this while strongly considering interviewing with you guys. I guess I want to find and equilibrium between optimistic and realistic.

What would convince you? People are beating you to seniority in the meantime.

Class dates announced:
4 classes in April
3 classes in May
4 classes in June

Seniority is key.
