So if I went for the airbus, I would have a decent chance to get MCO?

The fastest way to MCO is to become an instructor. After that it's a crap shoot, but Mco is arguably the most senior base tied or second only to LGB.

Behind becoming an instructor the 190 is likely the fastest way in. Conservatively I'd plan a year or three. Mco on the 320 probably 2-4 years unless we decide to finally grow the base. But they've been gonna grow Mco for at least 9 years. We've literally gone years with 0 (zero) movement in MCO. Ymmv. Believe me there's a lot of us hoping you get Mco fast...

14.

Crews sleeping on airplanes, in crew rooms, on bag belts. It is truly a complete meltdown over here.
Oh yea? Ill take the pay/insurance/work rules/upgrades/fleet plan and sleep on a belt for a night.
Thats an aberration over there- at B6 its becoming the norm and its not even the busy season. CBA NOW and then upgrade and hire.

I detest Bonnie as much as the next red-blooded American, but just a little devil's advocate here.....

Boeing also invested in Zunum and I tend to think that when it comes to airplanes, Boeing knows what the hell it's talking about.

Back in 2013 I was trying hard to get out of the regionals and went to a Vets in Blue at JB HQ in Queens. I assume it was HQ anyway. Sat through the presentation given mostly by Bonnie and afterward we were invited to gather around the 7 or so recruiters there to hand off your resumes and get a word in.

I ended up in the gaggle around Bonnie. Now my resume was just average Joe but was at least significantly above all mins posted. Had a bit of volunteer work on there as well. When I made it up for my chance, she gave my resume the briefest of glances, maybe 5 seconds? Very short nonetheless. Handed it right back and let it go before I even got my hands on it and it dropped to the floor. I went to pick it up as she was saying she recommended more volunteer work and went on to the next guy.

That might have been true for what they were looking for but it really rubbed me the wrong way after taking time off and spending my own money for a hotel and to get to NY. She's one of those people you remember in not such a good way. Anyway, ended up getting hired at Spirit and am now left seat so it all worked out fine. Just wanted to say that I still remember that like it was yesterday. Made you feel pretty small.

You should've known that her poop is the only poop in the world that doesn't stink.

I've never heard anything good about her piloting skills. Honestly, she should be off our seniority list since her current job has nothing to do with flying.

I wish we could kick her off. It would be a great thing for all the passengers in the back!

JB is full of Bonni stories like this. Congratulations on your success and sorry that's happened to you!
