50 every 2 weeks? Class last week was 45, and they have 53 for next week, trying for more. Which is a big ask, because 45 in one class for most of the indoc stuff was a bit much.

the real question: how many finished training and didn’t get a call from major fill in the blank? or who got that call and never showed up in Orlando?

Jetblue has, like, 9 different paint schemes on the fusulage. Some have a light blue stripe, some don’t. Some have the blue come way up the fusulage, some are down lower. Some have registered trademark R’s next to the titles, some don’t. Some have “jetblue” in light blue, most are in dark blue. It’s kind of a mess, just like the operation.

With an opening contract offer from the company that is the single most lucrative contract in aviation history, taking inflation into account.

Default Warning for new hires

So theyve already beat the blue juice out of me. I went into this knowing that there was a delay in 190 training. I didn't expect it to basically not exist and for them to jerk you around as hard as they do. Jetblue values my ass they dont even pay lip service to it.

It started off with a two week delay which i expected, systems went okay. Then its been maybe 1 out of ten events actually happening. They will wait till 2 or 3 pm to cancel events for the next day and just roll it onto originally scheduled off days. It sucked for the first few weeks cause I had like 12 days in a row with something scheduled and stayed at the lodge not knowing when I'd get home. Eventually I saidd fk it and just flew home. All my events for the last 2 weeks have canceled. None of my events except one in the middle of march even have an instructor on the schedule so i'm already a month and a half behind my original finish date assuming that every event happens. Which it wont so I'm gonna assume probably finishing some time in may. This is killing my financially I had paid off all my debt and tried to save but take home after insurance is about 300 a week which barely covers rent much less all the other bills so I'm hemorrhaging savings. I can't go 5 months on 2k a month luckily my wife is going back to work in a few weeks so that will help.

Its been an absolute joke. My old CFI buddy interviewed at UAL about a month before I interviewed at JB and has finished training and said he should hold a line next month in SFO. Meanwhile I'm 2 or 3 months away from even seeing the actual plane and getting on normal pay.

How hard is it to do the right thing and be like after 60 days you just go on normal pay? If they are gonna treat me like **** then that attitude is gonna go right back at them. Trying to save a few bucks on paying newhires... I'll get that money back and then some 3 engine taxi push 10 early in 13 late.

TLDR If you get 190 in indoc then your fked.

I wanted this to be my last job but this is absolutely unacceptable. 3 months to even get to the sim at this rate? how the hell do you even mismanage things that bad?

I hate to say it, but it doesn’t get much better on the line. You’ll get a steady paycheck, but the mismanagement will continue en masse.

They don't have enough instructors. They need to make it more attractive to be an instructor. 90k salaried for the first year is ok. That will probably be the same or more than most new hires. 90k again the second year makes no sense. Instructors are line qualified pilots in addition to being instructor qualified and taking on additional duties. Why would they make less than a line pilot of similar seniority? And from what I hear the company doesn't want to pull bodies off the line to put them in the training department. So the only solution is take care of the ones who are willing to be new hire instructors. Hopefully they will soon.
