From AA VP John Hale who visited the Sep 25 recall class:
  • Application window to open Oct 1
  • Interviews in Nov
  • New hires in Dec
FWIW, the Sep 25 class was all MIA 767 (all domestic) and 737 (mostly int'l).

767 domestic? Does AA do much Domestic out of Miami on the 767? I thought most of that 757/767 flying was Central and South/Deep South America.

As far as what went more senior, it's mixed. It appears 737 Domestic was most senior, 737 Int'l was in the middle. Seems all but the last 5 still had a choice, they all got 767 D. Probably because that flying has a lot of red-eye's.

Report from the schoolhouse is that all training programs are good. Particularly good reviews about the A320 training.

Nobody has been able to get DFW (or ORD for that matter) from their training bid unless they had a reinstatement right (basically they were on that equipment in that domicile when they got furloughed).

The most junior in DFW are on the S80 (they've been back 2-4 months) or the 737 (probably more like 6-12 months). The pendulum is just starting to change. New hires next year will have more choices than the recall's have had over the last 6 months.

There are 67 bid lines in that category. Lots of redeyes to the west coast. Decent bankers hours flying for the senior lineholders, however.

How often do system bids come out where one can try to switches bases/equip due to vacancies?

Just trying to gauge if being a new hire in Mia would keep me there for years?

Vacancy bids come out once a month.

Dfw is starting to go junior. A320 and 737 FO has gone to recallees who have only been on property a few months.

Good luck to all who apply!

Sept 30 (Reuters) - American Airlines plans to hire 1,500 new pilots over the next five years and has offered to recall all pilots who are currently furloughed, it said in a U.S. regulatory filing on Monday.
The AMR Corp unit, which has been operating under Chapter 11 protection since late 2011 and is looking to emerge from bankruptcy by merging with US Airways Group Inc, said it would start recruiting later in the fall.
"We are building a strong, competitive and profitable new American which will create more opportunity for our people," AMR Chief Executive Officer Tom Horton said in a message to staff that was included in the filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Horton added that the carrier was still open to talks to settle the U.S. Justice Department lawsuit seeking to block the merger with US Airways. A federal judge will hear the case without a jury in November and decide whether the deal can go forward.

I hope APA can try to negotiate some sort of LOS (even partial would be a great start) for the furloughees. I plan on coming back before 2016...earlier if the LOS thing happens. Finally some exciting news!

PS: does any active pilot know if the schoolhouse allows F/Os as instructors? 3000+ PIC in the Airbus and would love to put it to use!
