Well, currently the 747 is the junior airplane... :P

Things are starting to spin up. Interviews going to happen in New York (for the first time in many years) next week for eight interviews. Be on your toes.

Ha! I meant 767. Busted!! I'm guessing the interview process is changing if it won't be down at Miami with flight ops? Hopefully somebody can get a new gouge to the people interviewing ASAP. Why the change? Ceiling finally cave in during a rain storm or is there a legit reason!?!

This sounds like a one time thing and the guys interviewing will be the gouge. Same grading as has been recently mentioned.

Maybe the interviewees will get lucky and get to stay at the Five Clowns.

speaking of crap hotels, are we still staying at that spring hill suites in ORD? I have a couple LONG layovers there on my next trip, it would be nice to be walking distance of things...

Are you living in base, meaning no commute and crash pad required?

For ORD, the Blue Line will take you downtown for your viewing pleasures. Enjoy the weather.
