    To Prep or Not to Prep Interesting discussion. My .02 - Three interviews at SWA. Got hired the third time. Did the interview prep for the 3rd interview. Maybe it was just a coincidence? You decide. Merry Christmas to all.

    New Guy - Where to start?

    Thanks for the replies guys - good stuff. One thing I think most everyone agrees upon is to get the four degree. It is definitely a plus when looking for any employment, whether in aviation or outside in the "real" world. Any more opinions?

    SWA class family info

    Dental/Medical Coverage My Recollection (how's that for equivocation) is that medical/dental coverage begins on day 1 in the the general HMO plan. After 30 days if you do not elect a different coverage you will stay in the general plan for the remainder of the calendar year. If you elect one...

    Don't think you are ranting. Jumpseating is a privelege. I first ask the "A" flight attendant for permission to enter the cockpit. I enter the cockpit with my right hand extended as I introduce myself to the Capt/FO. In my left hand I have my ID, my license/med certificate and...

    How does SWA pay work?

    Trip Rate X 1.1393 = Hourly (or so I've been told) Once you're here, you shift your thinking and no longer think in "hourly" terms. SWA IS different! - If you've come from another airline it's a paradigm shift of major proportions.
