Continental New Hires 9/06/05

The latest class of 12 new hires started Tuesday, Sept. 6th. They came from...

XJT (5)
Colgan
USMC
USAF
DAL
USN
Trans States
ATA

Eight were awarded the B756 EWR. The remaining four will be on the B737 EWR. The next class will have 16 new hires starting Sept. 13th.

EDIT: I don't know how to read a calendar.

Has anyone during this new wave of hiring been hired at CAL from a corporate flight department? I was in the pool in Mar. of 2000 as a flow-thru when CAL put the brakes on all hiring.....left XJT for UAL and the rest is....well...sucks! Do I stand a chance or am I stuck in this corporate world forever?

Thanks

Tanner,

I was furloughed from USAir and flew a Lear for the last three years. I start class with CAL on the 13th. I thought I would never get out either. Keep the faith.

That is not the breakdown for the class that starts on the 13th.

Sorry 'bout that.

Sorry about the confusion. :eek:

The date should be Sept. 6th, not the 13th. The other info is correct. The next two classes will be the 13th and the 20th with 16 in each class.

Yes a few pilots have come from the corporate world. Good luck.

Thanks RF,

Do you know the age span of the last class and the most junior pilot's seniority number?

Do you think there will still be a class that will go all 757? I bet getting off reserve will take forever in that equipment.

thanks

Unless you go to Guam, it all starts from the first day, but yes, six months is correct. Bummer.

How long are EWR 756 newhires looking at before they are lineholders? And whats the normal reserve schedule like? Relatively commutable?
Most pilots around 70% seat seniority are holding lines in EWR on the B756. Conversion Lines go lower. The most junior 756 FO at 70% is a Feb. '98 hire. This doesn't reflect the most recent bid or the bid due out this month. I think line holders will have a late '99 - '00 hire date on the current bid (just a guess). It's all subject to change with PBS. I can't comment on the commutability issue.

The age span was from 28 - 46. The most junior pilot on property has a seniority number of 4517. I'm not sure about the B756 class.
