You have my full wholehearted sympathy if LGB closes. I wouldn't wish a transcon base closure on anyone.

Agreed, and even moreso on reserve. That's why I moved JFK-LAX with the base closure at the other white n blue airline.

Somebody has to fly those 5 day / 25 hr trips. Do that 3 times a month AND a lil more to get to 80 ish hours a month...yup reserve doesn't sound so bad.

And those 5 day trips = red eyes and STI's...yup reserve sounds great now

Agreed. Most junior CAís that took the upgrade also realized that they would be on RSV for a long time and either moved in base or already lived in base, minus JFK of course. The cost will drive JB not to displace or possibly to displace. I still come back to As long as we are in growth mode itís not an issue..

The bright side of reserve - I guess ??? - is that you can get in phenomenal shape down at Richie’s Gym in S. Ozone on 101st and 101st. $5 per day. Cash only. You want cardio? There’s a boat anchor over there : put it around your neck and run around the street with it cupcake. No machines here.

I’ve only ever seen 2 women there. And they looked like they were cast members of the WWF. dumbbells to 180lbs. You do have to decide which gang to be a part of when you get there. I always choose the work release guys and tell them I’m doing time just like they are...I don’t like working out in jeans like the mob guys. Plus the gold crucifix dangling from their neck would get in the way of pull-ups.

I cant see the requirements on the JetBlue website since the window is closed, but would anyone who has recently applied be willing to share their general qualifications and the outcome of the application/ interviews?

After reading some older threads it seems like 4000ish TT and a good chunk (1000 or so) TPIC? Im assuming a 4 year degree is required-any higher level degree? Previous threads/ posts seemed to be trending around those numbers but some were a few years old.

Current regional guy trying to figure out the formula for whats getting people calls.

Some guys get on without a degree. But very very few. Most have an insider. Probably average 5-7k hours

What can be expected for new hires coming on this summer? Will most of them likely go to the Airbus in NYC? What are the chances of getting 320 in BOS or FL?
