Whatever, everyone has an opinion, but most new hires I talk to seem to like the facility.
You are absolutely right, everyone has an opinion. Mine is that the Lodge sucks for long term training.

Most new hires like the facility because they just don't know better. It's not a knock on them, they just don't know. They also don't know how well we used to be treated with dinner at Sonny's, family coming for orientation and/or any time they wanted, and the freedom to relax outside of the BlueJuice OSC environment.

I stayed at the Residence Inn and it was the best training experience of any of the several airlines I've worked for.

Your previous post stated my thoughts far more eloquently than I did! It's not being a negative Nellie stating your opinion on how the experience has changed!

I'm glad recent newhires are enjoying their lodge experience, in the meantime I'm lighting candles that my transition training hotel will not be there. FWIW the company had informally told ALPA that no transition or upgrade events will be housed at the Lodge..

Thanks
Get on a windows computer with Internet explorer. Log into crew trac. Go to options and view schedule and pick the month. A calendar will come up with the pairings. Right click and view the pairing. On the far right will be the tails for every leg. You can also right click a leg and view the flight crew. keep in mind they delete crew trac after a few months. So right now I can only see as far back as February. As others have said its better to get one of those little crew logs and get times off the oooi (out/off/on/in) page right after you park. Plus then you can actually remember landings/imc/crew/approaches, etc. The oooi page drops off after 5 minutes so get in the habit of doing it right away. On the emb anyway.

He deserved what you gave him! As he gave you a childish immature response to a reasonable question... No apologies necessary, feel free to PM me with info about JB although I stayed at Staybridge for training..

Thank you
I stayed there too
Not the best hotel ever but
as I said I had a car so
the ride to the AM sim was no problem
plenty of dining options walking distance
Now my "non-PM" to you:
When are we getting a CBA?

Anyone know of any crashpads with openings near JFK? (Would actually prefer to rent a room.) Also, can someone explain when a reserve would be subject to long call vs short call. From what I gather, it's 99% short call- could one do short call with a 2 hour drive w/o traffic, how does parking reimbursement work? Also, what is the current estimate for resv in JFK and any pointers for IOE? Thanks a million!
