Thank you sir.
But I don't know the significance of that number, whether it's a recent measurement or not.

Could you let me know type of date.? such as 03/19 , 11/23

Dates donít really matter since we havenít hired in consistent numbers over the years. For instance, the junior captain is from 2018, but we have hired 7000 people since then. Relative system seniority is a better measure, which you can determine by dividing the numbers above by ~17k. I will add, though, Guam is unique and doesnít necessarily follow the same patterns most other places would. What the seniority looks like right now may have no basis on the future.

Just to add to that because Guam is such a small base it is very sensitive to changes in flying. Any growth or reductions of just a few flights can cause significant changes in base seniority. Ditto that for certain seniority blocks at the airline that-for whatever reason- do or donít want to go fly the islands in larger numbers. This makes it very difficult to make accurate long-term seniority predictions about the base.

In the past few years we have seen new hires going into Guam, but usually just 1 or 2 BI classes at a time is all it takes to fill the present need, then it dries up again; so more so than other bases, getting Guam as a NH is mostly a function of timing. Based on current trends Iíd say getting Guam as a NH is possible but not likely. Being able to bid in within your first 2 years is pretty likely, though if it were to take longer than that it wouldnít be very surprising.

Default AD Wife - Schools and housing

Hi,

First time poster with a CJO, but no training date.

My wife is Active Duty AF and we're maneuvering to get her stationed in Guam.

I've heard schools are not great, but does anyone have DODEA school experience in Guam? What does that look like?

On housing, would people recommend on base housing or out in the island? It would be a family of 3 or 4.

What if my wife gets staioned in Yokota (Tokyo)? I've read I wouldn't be the only one commuting that. Any thoughts?

What if my wife gets stationed at Hickam (HI)? If I get a bunch of island hoppers, does the overnight in hawaii kind of make up for it?

Thanks!

First things, first, donít count on getting GUM right off the bat. Itís a sporadic offering and rarely available to people in BI since those are whatís leftover and there are currently none leftover. How long it will take you to get there varies.
