Default jetBlue or Spirit

If given the options, both interviews passed, would you choose to take the CJO and the April class at Spirit, or keep going with jetBlue even if the hiring process is much longer and you won't get a class until Sept?

One may vote a new contract within a month, the other one will eventually get one...

Are the options mutually exclusive? I’d go to spirit, and if you got hired by JB and wanted to make the switch, do it then.

You MUST take the Spirit class date. In this industry you never, ever know when the music will stop. If you turn down Spirit thinking you are going to take a Sept JB class you are one stock market crash, oil bubble or one terrorist flying an airplane into a building from being stuck at your regional.

Take the Spirit class, reevaluate two weeks before your JB class date.

Spirit will probably have faster seniority progression anyways, and a new contract.

Take Spirit and never look back. They have a contract and will soon vote in another one with higher pay rates, better benefits, and better work rules. Blujet management suffers from arrogant incompetence. This place doesn’t know what it wants to be. After 15 years at this circus I’m disenchanted to say the least.
