We did finally get an email to submit new bids because the east coast routes are anticipated to be awarded. Looks like Baltimore will be the base. Supposed to start up roughly March-April if we get the contract.

Boutique passengers are also now able to use TSA Pre-Check if they're set up for it. I know that previously, this ticked off a lot of passengers that they couldn't use it, so good news for them.

Sorry if this is an obvious or dumb question. What are the chances of getting LAX or PHX currently for SIC? Looking at applying and have been reading as much as I can on Boutique and a few others.

Heard the LAX is currently filled. Not sure about the PHX.

How many of you here are waiting for the technical interview after they went through the HR?

Unfortunately you're right. I know someone mentioned that you could switch bases once you're hired, does anyone know how easy it is to move bases if hired? Denver taking most of the new hires?

The current class is all Denver based. Of course these things are cyclical, but right now it appears that Denver staffing is on the decline (just as we finally made it to a 4 and 3 schedule for January). I expect things will stabilize again, though.

Changing bases is not as simple as saying "I want to change base." You do get to list a base of preference, and that gets you ahead of new hires. But there is no guarantee as to how quickly the change will occur.

If you are considering Boutique, I'd recommend being willing to start at a base other than your first choice if at all possible. Be careful, though. MSP and PDX seem to have commutable schedules, other bases not so much. I guess it depends on how much you want the job.

That makes sense. I'm pretty much willing to do whatever. Most of the pilots seem to enjoy Boutique, and while I'd love to best based in the West I have no problem with going elsewhere.

PHX SIC is a possibility, we're about to be down to 3 of them soon. We're at ~60 hours/month now, so one less would make it hard to maintain ~12 days off a month like what they shoot for.

Bids go out every quarter. Basically, if you want to go somewhere, there's a spot open, and nobody with higher seniority wants to go there too, you should get it. Bids never bump anyone out of a base once they're in it, they only allow you to move if a spot is available.
