Or something like that. Worked for me anyway on Firefox, no issues.

However, it seems like the gouge I see on here that you can go back and add documents later isn't accurate. I just submitted my app and it shows "submitted," but no link or way to go back and add supporting documents that I see.

I'm willing to be proven wrong on that though.
Holy crap this worked! Thanks!

I updated the numbers to include all bases/equip. We've hired about 300 pilots so far for 2014 and 6 more A321s to be delivered this year. I haven't heard any rumors/projections regarding hiring for 2015, but we are due to receive 12 A321s. (15 Airbuses per year after that through 2020, subject to change and no clue if they will all be growth or replacements).

Anyone know exactly what time zone the application window officially closes tomorrow evening? With work schedule, I won't be able to complete it until late on the 6th.

Also, if I have begun the application process, will I have access past the 6th to complete it?

To answer your questions from what I've gathered:

- No one knows when the window will exactly close, and it may not even be tomorrow. Actually, someone brought up a great point that OBAP is on Thursday and that closing the window prior to that conference is highly unlikely. Again, no one really knows, but the odds seem to be in your favor on that one.

- I asked the question about completing an app after the widow closes from the draft applications previously. The feedback I received was to not count on it, and to finish the app while the window is open. Documents can be added to the main portal page after submission, if that's all you're missing.

I have not flown anything heavy since 2003 as I have been running a business. I stay current in various aircraft but they are all light single and multi-engine airplanes. Is there any chance that jBlue would hire me? One thing I can say is that I am a hell of a nice and fun guy!! LOL

Was asked to get current 121. And that's what I'm doing...at a regional (since May). Ugggh.

There's a 2 year seat lock. So you'll be on your initial equipment for 2 years before you can bid to the other.

I recommend the E190 first, as people sometimes struggle learning the Bus simultaneously with JetBlue procedures. It's a lot to take in. Plus you'll be more senior quicker on the 190. There's about to be a bunch of people moving off the 190 as their seat locks expire. The beginning of the last big wave of hiring was almost exactly 2 years ago, so expect this next bid to have a decent number of transitions.
