I submitted my app with jetBlue in mid April 2005 with a Jan 2006 available date. They called me in mid-July (six months minus one day from my available date) for the August interview. Others in the samw interview session said they had their apps in for up to two years. I asked what got us the interview and I was told that jetBlue does a search based on the quals they want, then they have a group of individuals look at the results. Former military look at the mil apps, former regional pilots look at the regional apps, etc. Then the apps are sent to the pilot recruitment team. After offered the job, jetBlue lets the new hires select E190 or A320. There will be two classes for each airframe in September (14 & 28) and October of 18 per class per airframe. November (9 & 30) will have two classes of each with 20 in each class. Each new hire can select either type and gets a white paper explaining the $$$ from LOE to the 2 year point. With the E190 upgrade expected in the 13th month, those chasing the $$ would perfer the E190. After a two year A/C lock you will be allowed to move. The numbers between the two at the 2 year point are the same. Hope this helps.

Congrats! Since I have read some of the other posts explaining that the money at the 2 year point is the same, that is a pretty sweet deal. Good luck.

I have a few friends at JB who are ready and willing to write letters of recommendations, but I don't think my qualifications are competitive: 5500TT, 3200 turbine SIC (all in the CRJ), ATP, no type ratings. Does anyone know if inside referrals help the chances of receiving an interview invitation for those who meet the minimum requirements, but may not have competitive experience? Thanks!
