To make you feel better I have 8 years of A320, A330 and B777 experience. Four years of university from one of the top 10 university. Clear FAA and criminal record yet not good enough to land interview with JetBlue. Wishing you best of luck.

Any recommendations or ways to prep?
I recommend watching "The Right Stuff"
It will be slightly harder than in the movie but you got the idea
Good luck

Woow !! your quals are amazing and do not give even a small "a" or "b" or answer "z" ??? nothing?? so I'm hoping for a miracle too, someone who does the interviews have told me "I hate to say this, but you must have patience, we have about 25,000 applicants and the system collect random 60 approx. every month" there are pilots that have hired after 8 years of his first application .. long process. !!

good luck with this game

Done a job fair yet?

I'm nowhere near your qual level and the recruiter that I spoke to said I should get a call. At the same time JB is my first choice due to my family situation and I was able to sell that pretty well, and knew a lot about the company.

All that said, still waiting on that call......

I've been in the system for about two years and got the call for a 12/15 interview. Pretty excited to say the least

JetBlue thinks I will leave them for big 3 with my experience. Which might be not the case for you. Anyway wishing you good luck with your interview 😊

And yet we continue to fill half our classes with ex military guys who have the same or arguably more competitive experience than yourself.

Like others have asked, how many job fairs have you been too?

One job fair only, I work out of middle east. It is all about luck....... at right place at right time.
Military guys are always picked first and I have nothing but respect for military guys & girls.

There isn't a whole lot of luck involved. You either know someone who helps you get the call or you find that person via job fairs and networking. Neither of those are luck.
