Should be a fair number of backfills as a lot of the min/max numbers are the same or close.

Why are folks thinking there was going to be a MOAB? Where did that rumor start?

The vacancy trend for the last year+ is to fill slots in the near term over 1-3 months. A MOAB would require training so far down the timeline that folks would get contractual protections costing the company $$$.

Yup, the company has spelled out (paraphrased) that bids are to match training capacity. So, think of it as a multi-year MOAB. With little chance of Christmas training, Iíd expect this one to go more senior.

Yíall need to read the union comms, there isnít going to be a MOAB. Itís been that way for over a year now.

60 WB Captain (125 total Captain open) and 70 WB FO with 300 FO openings total. There are going to be lots of unfilled on this bid for new hires. Iím guessing the 18 787/777s being delivered by May have something to do with this. Looks like the new hire program will be robust for some time.

My only question is what airline are we going to steal all the pilots from to staff United?

Weíre acquiring 500 SWA pilots along with the 19 aircraft. They get DOH.

That is exactly why pilots want a MOAB! They might be able to get the contractual protections that you alluded to.

A friend was in EWR for a townhall end of September early October......Fabian apparently said December MOAB.

Thatís was the first I heard of it.......so because the company said expect the MOAB I thought we would have said MOAB.....
