Default FO MIA Base 2.5 years to award

Just so potential new hires are aware, each month the list grows for FO's bidding MIA. Over the past 6 months we have averaged only 2 back fill awards ( no new vacancies) per month. The denied awards report shows this data.
March 2018 denied - 43
April 2018 denied - 44
June 2018 denied - 53

With each new hire class we are having more and more FO's bid for MIA with only an average of 2 awards per month. If you started class today and put your name on the list at 54 in line, divide by 2 awards per month average, you are looking at 27 months until you receive the award, and 4 months to wait to sit in base. It is at least 2 and a half years until an FO will sit in MIA base. Just FYI folks.

Some of our lines of flying in MIA are supposedely being displaced to DCA. With Envoy putting 175s in MIA, the wait is only going to get longer.

Why would anyone come to Republic for a MIA base. Couple years late on that idea. I would expect more movement as the senior FOs upgrade in MIA, but they could just not backfill.

I have recently met a few brand new FO's hoping for MIA in 6 months. Some misinformation is out there. I think more new hires than you'd think are coming here for the MIA base misinformed about time to hold it. A new hire will be awarded upgrade at our junior bases before being awarded MIA as an FO.

Well the junior FO in base is a Jan 17 I believe, but sounds like a long list to get in today. Movement will pick up a little in the spring, but I would expect 2 years right now. Everything could change in the next 6 months though

We haven't heard any rumors of that over here. You guys have EOW, we don't and there's no talks of getting it anytime soon. But our 145 lines are supposed to nearly double by June/July according to an email we received earlier this year from the company. Not sure how that would impact you guys but I would doubt it does. Probably has more to do with us picking up the slack from the departure of Air Whiskey via fly through routes.

I love working here and its a great place, but it'll be a wait for MIA. At this point if you were going to commute I'd say go with Endeavor, no one can match their pay and benefits. If MIA basing is a top priority go with Envoy. I've heard new hires get it quickly. However, once you upgrade at Envoy you will be commuting to LGA. With that said I'd say go with Endeavor. Same with Republic, even if you get MIA in 2 years you will soon upgrade to a new york base and sit there for a couple years. You wouldn't even get to enjoy the MIA base unless you hold off on upgrade which is never recommended.

Disclaimer, this is just the snapshot of everything today, it could get worse or better. It will be interesting to see what happens next award on Feb 9th, when they release awards for June. We'll see if they let more into MIA to ramp up staffing for summer flying.

Good Luck!
