This is 100% due to me having two initial 121 failures at a regional (psa) about 1.5 years ago. I have a 4 year college degree, no dui, no arrest, no speeding ticket, 100% clean. I've since moved onto Mesa and passed initial, ioe, and recurrent without issues. I absoluelty love Mesa and thier training department, and all CA's and people I fly with, my instructors, and examiners. I feel like Mesa was a much better fit for me than PSA. It was just all around a fantastic and pilot-positive experience, which I heard JB is the same way. I prefer this kind of company culture.

My question is, when will JB consider me?

Mesa is currently in the process of phasing out all CRJ's (which I currently fly), and will be in the process of type rating everyone on the e175/e190.

So if I also get this type rating, will JB consider me then? lets say 6 months from now. It will be me having passed initial on crj at mesa, ioe, recurrent, and a new type (e175/e190) along with passing e175 ioe.

I might give it one more shot, but if JB dosn't consider me this last time, I am just planning on staying in the Aviate program with Mesa and flow to United in the 2 years timelime they've supplied me with (Feb 2026). I'm afraid just having one more shot at applying is all I can give, as antyhing after the time I apply again in 6 months would be too late for me, and i'd very much rather stay at mesa and go to united in the 1.5 years i'd have left when applying again... since my seniroty is very high (top 10% of FO's) so I get any schedule I want, any days off I want, and the pay is fantastic.

Please any input thanks
How the hell do you have 2 121 busts with the same regional. Fantastic no speeding tickets 😏, but two 121 busts!

Multiple 121 busts in the recent past are generally a no-go item until they age a bit. JetBlue isn't hiring a ton this next year, so your resume will be competing with hundreds of others with no 121 busts. That's the challenge you're facing. If you have a few recurrent cycles under your belt those 121 failures will fade a bit, but that's years away, not months away.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but my advice would be to exercise that plan B, and keep applying until something happens.

Appreciate the response. Yeah my plan B is currently in the works. Not bad news for me... I mean I will still give JB a try, but if they reject me again then oh well. Looking foward to flying to EJET at mesa and gaining that experience until I flow to United.... or 737 at Mesa and giving southwest a try. Thanks again.

I've seen them take it down for a few weeks then put it back up. We are supposedly only going to be hiring for attrition in 24 so that could be why as well.

Is that a good or bad thing? Does that mean less hiring than normal
