Let's say that by some miracle of God, I get a call to interview at and subsequently hired by Frontier:

How many days off does a reserve get?

How long is the call out?

How long until one becomes a lineholder?

Is dealing with crew skeds tolerable or intolerable?

These aren't deal breaking questions for me--I recently moved here and would love to fly for these folks. Just looking for info, understanding that this info is usually dynamic.

11-12 days off depending on whether or not its a 30 or 31 day month.

How long is the call out?

2 hour callout.

Too early to tell. Reserves now have been on too long but that was because we were not hiring. If you get an early class, I don't see any reason why you couldn't get a line within 3-6 months.

I'd like to think we are tolerable. But you'll probably have to ask some of the guys on here that are on the other side of the phone.

Good luck in your endeavors!

Skeds are very tolerable, as long as u r not an A$$.
If u live in DEN, Reserve is GOOD!
If u commute, Reserve is OK! Maybe.

11-12 days off. Although I have seen 12-13. We have a night duty too. 900pm-0200. I guess u never fly on this shift.
