One last question on holiday pay. Sorry to circle back, you can nominate me for TOTD.
If I am flying 2 hours on thanksgiving, do I get double pay totaling 4 hours, or double pay totaling 10 hours (min guarantee when performing duty is 5 hours)?

The rumor that B6 doesn't like Captains and some have to much time is not true. The current class is comprised of almost all Captains from regional carriers, many with 7,000+ hours. The one thing most have in common is multiple jobs fair attendances and 3-4 app windows.

4 hours. The min is an average for the trip not actually per day.

Has anyone else run into this issue?

I got the same email too and replied I had received the confirmation email as well. Got an email back about an hour later to disregard then standby email and that my spot was still confirmed.

I received the "sent in error" email this morning. I was concerned for a second because I am super excited to attend this event!

FYI, I've been before and signed up for standby. Received an email yesterday saying to reply "available" in the subject line and my number in the body if I still want to go. I'm not sure about the other glitches but this is what I've seen. BTW, bring a lot of resumes. Don't want to be needing more, right?

Polishing my resume as we speak. I was wondering, do they like to see jetBlue, (not capitalized) or JetBlue (capitalized)?

Believe me, that is low on their list but a valid question. jetBlue is strictly used more in a marketing sense, you would want JetBlue on your résumé.
