Default New Compass news?

Alright, I haven't heard anything for a while about Compass so I was wondering if anyone has heard anymore news about the airline. Are they calling for interviews. If so any of you guys want to let us know what they are saying.
What are you NWA guys thinking about this whole deal now...good...bad?

When are they going to start taking delivery of aircraft?
Any other news would be nice too

Compass is still headquartered in Chantilly VA (at least as of two days ago when I talked on the phone with somebody there...). I didn't get any indication that they were going to up and move their offices over the last two days, especially given the fact that they fall under the scope of the IAD FSDO and are right in the final stages of certification...

They might be setting up to do interviews in Eagan since it will be easier/cheaper to fly people on NWA to that location than to IAD. Especially given the changes that I have heard about their interview process.

OK, I got a call to do an interview on the 10th or 13th but don't have off so I won't be interviewing till the 23rd now. Anybody have any help or tips on what to look over. I assume a standard SIM ride, maybe a 50 question ATP written, and some HR stuff. Anyone?
Anybody else heard any other news?

Oh and what would they be doing with a 727 SIM?

What's unfortunate is that NWA pilots gave it away...

Compass will not fly the DC-9. The 727 sim is to eval pilot skill in the case of a flow up situation. NWA is parking 9's. haveshavenots first post...do some recearch before you post your second.
