Default Current JetBlue NewHire movement.

For a new hire what would you expect for base, time to hold a line, and equipment out of the gate?

New hires are getting a few A320 JFK and mostly 190 JFK or BOS. Expansion is ongoing in FLL so if you get the 320, you could go there within a year or less.
A 320 line in JFK is about a year. A 190 line in JFK or BOS is a little less. I got a line on the 320 in BOS in less than a year, but it was my vacation month so results are skewed. Iíve had a few 190 friends bid over to the 320 at the one year mark.

The situation is very dynamic so why not starting a new enlightening conversation ... unless you want to share the link of previous posts! thanks

I wouldnít call it very dynamic. New-hires getting the 190 in the two big bases and A320-JFK has been status quo at Jetblue for over a decade. There was a brief period recently where new-hires were getting LGB, but it was very brief.

If you are a new hire, you want to be on the 190 right now. Most movement and the quickest way to a line

Considering we just announced that we pushed back deliveries on the 320 and the 220 I would say itís gonna start smelling a little stagnant in the next few months.

Careful, a few other members might complain that there isn't enough "positive" posts.

And yes, they'll still want "positive" posts even after our disgusting profit sharing (profit stealing) announcement.

Not only that but it's the same pay first year. If your ego can handle flying an RJ at the major airline level, that is.

Can someone direct me to an article or post something about the recent aircraft deferrals. I'm in the pool and am just wondering how this will effect my pending start date.
