Nothing here either. Although on a flight from MSP to DLH on 8/6 I was told by the FO, who had been helping out at the interviews and recognized me, that someone who did part of the background screening has been on vacation and things were a bit backed up. Anybody know if there is any truth to this.
I know it's easier said than done, but just be patient. It was just under 3 weeks for me to get my answer (over a year and a half ago). And when they did, they offered me a class in 8 days! It's usually a good thing that they take a while to get back to you... Preliminary background checks, drug test results, sifting through the folks that made it through the initial, etc. It all takes time. They don't invest that time and expense usually unless you're all but hired.
With few exceptions, Mesaba isn't very quick about getting back to you after the interview. It's just the way it is. It's still a good place to be with some great people.
...Just to add a word on "unknown variables", the airline services agreement (ASA) for the CRJ's (and for that matter, the extension of the SF340 and ARJ flying 'til 2015) has not been signed. As of my ground school, which was in JUNE, Spanjers told us that negotiations between XJ and NW on the ASA was getting close, but moving very slowly. He would not elaborate, due to the fact that the ASA is "negotiated" between the airlines (yeah, right). Couple weeks ago, Foley confirmed during MAIR quarterly investment call that ASA still was not done.
On the brighter side of things, evidently CRJ N601XJ has returned from paintshop in AZ to Montreal for final processes, and 602 and 603 are heading out of the Bombardier barn this week for paint.
Friday @ 2359 EDT and the ASA...that is all I would keep an eye on for now.
