Thanks.
As I just logged back in to add a LOR, I noticed after submitting the updated info section, the area that allows for uploading of resume/cover letter/addition documents all show no attachments. This does not mean my resume/cover letter did not save on the initial app correct? Thanks!

I believe that the section on your main login page pertaining to additional documents has some fine print above it stating to the effect that:

"Additional supporting documents can be uploaded for use when completing applications."

It seems as if it is just an online "holding tank" for your convenience to store documents to expedite the filling out of future applications. This is also why I am skeptical of the ability to upload more documents to your specific job application after it has been submitted merely by putting the documents on the "main login page". To me it seems as if that is just a user tool, and doesn't mean these documents are published anywhere.

I expect the 190 hiring numbers to pick back up. We shall see. Some of those guys holding lines could go back to reserve if enough transitions move in on top of them.

I'm not transitioning, but many of my buddies are in this next bid.
JFK E190 "right now" for junior people is a tough spot.
Way over staffed at the moment and very little movement. I'm around 2600 in seniority and I can't hold a line or even a build-up line.
Expect to fly around 5-10 hours a month. You could go 2 or 3 weeks of sitting in a crash pad with no calls.
If I was in BOS on the E190 I would hold a line. If I was JFK A320 I would hold a line.
Hopefully there is some movement in JFK on the E190, but as of the last few months it's been very stagnant with tons of reserves and almost no open time.

^^^ Good info^^^ Anyone who can get the bus, take it. Easier trips and movement. Good luck to all.

With all the new slots gained in DCA is there any internal rumor or talk about a DCA domicile coming in the future? As I understand it, JB already calls it a focus city....

Most significant growth for the next 2-3 years will be in fll. I wouldn't count on a dca base any time soon.

Sorry

We will have around 30 fights a day out of dca. It is a focus area and they have run some numbers about having a base there. If we just did 190s out of there I would say it will happen but we have 320s as well so it might happen.
As always it's about money so we will see.

You have to be very careful what you wish for.

The addition of bases further dilutes pairings. If you have a moment to speak with some of the scheduling folks the education is worth it. Many times the addition of these bases,focus cities means a draw back in others. The proximity of DCA and the stage length of originating flights will not always exceed the daily average; ergo, non-commutable 10 hour two days and 15 hour rigged 3 days.

Are there any attrition numbers floating around? Looking to see how many numbers recent new hires have been moving up over the last year. Word from OBAP is they are going to be interviewing about 200 qualified apps from the conference. What is the split of hiring for attrition versus growth?
