Well, The Anc 737-200 base probably was the last little bit of Alaska Spirit that our mgmnt is so fond of quoting..People came to work and used their brains and their ability and a little ambition to get the job done in as timely and efficient a manner as possible....There was always talk about how it was cowboys and arctic eagles riding rough shod over the far's and company procedures but that was just a myth propogated by a few loud mouths as all myths are. The flying really is no different than flying anywhere, except there is less traffic in your way when the weather goes south. Flying a low weather approach to a slippery cross wind runway is the same whether it is Bethel or Boston....So again it really was the people that made the difference. As you well know, after May 1st that last little bit of "Spirit" hopped on the last train out of town and those tracks dont run here anymore....In short the -200 is an airplane that is flown like an airplane by people that put their pants on one leg at a time....BigRing said:I finally got the phone call, and i have an interview with Alaska next week. I have no idea what would be available if i get hired, but i'd appreciate as much info on flying the -200 in ANC as possible. Thanks!

Maybe that attitude will change now that there is no arbitration. Hopefully.alaskaplt said:And the best part is you get to fly with people who have traditionally thought the job is worth 92% of what the other carriers get because we get to fly in Alaska and the Pacific Northwest.
