I’ll throw my hat in the ring here (though I have no dog in this fight) as regards multiple application windows. I applied once, did not apply the next 3 or 4 windows that opened, and got called for an interview right at six and a half months later. No one asked me why I did not apply over and over in my interview.

I think there is a discrepancy between what sometimes actually happens and what the company and those in the recruiting Dept TELL us.

You got hired from vets in blue. You applied in the specific window to get an invite to vets in blue. They happened to have other windows open after the VIB one, but by that time your app was already moving. Your vets in blue event got you an interview. Your interview got you hired.

Itís instances like these where the purging wonít matter. But for a normal dude reading these boards wanting to come to jetblue, the info that is put out is that you apply to each window, because every time a new window closes, the apps from previous windows are no longer pulled if they havenít yet been pulled. Could I be wrong? Sure. But that info came from recruiters. Iíll trust what they say over some new dude on a random internet board.

Yes, I was hired thru VIB. But it wasnít a VIB application window as far as I know? I know there were others who applied in the same window who did not attend the VIB session; some got hired, some did not. Some were military (10%ish of those who attended were hired), most were not.

As has been said, what ACTUALLY happens and what is SUPPOSED to happen may well be two different things. Kind of like when I have to call CS (before departure) and ask them if they are going to ask me to extend, or if they just want to wait until I am in the air to say no.

ALL recruiters are liars. Mark my words, set your watch, and have a drink on me on that!

Domestic partners qualify as well.

I'd wager that maybe 3% of my taxis would benefit from using a single engine. Hardly worth the effort vs. increased maintenance costs. Fuel is wicked cheap compared to a cold section.
