Hi. I have an interview with Island Air in HNL in two weeks and am wondering if someone could tell me a little bit about the airline such as QOL, contract hightlights, or upgrade times. Also, is there a training contract? thanks.
You even need to put up with 807 and 808. (world's highest cycle DHC-8s)KnowledgeSeeker said:I love surfing and will put up with anything to do so. Also a good reason would be loving the weather and the water.
Good luck on this one. You're probably better off in Columbus, Ohio.KnowledgeSeeker said:Another would be I am looking for an island girl and can't find them in Ohio.
The pay's not real good, the summer schedule's a mess, there aren't enough reserves, etc. Oh, by the way, a studio apartment will run you over $1000.KnowledgeSeeker said:If you are just coming out to have a regional job than Island Air is probably not for you. The lifestyle can be very good if the above things are important.
If you don't want to move to HNL then forget it. Otherwise, go and make it a good experience. Never turn down a job you haven't been offered!ShizeyMcPilot said:The real problem here is I don't really want to move to HNL and would rather stay here in Chicago so I am thinking about canceling the interview. But if the upgrade opportunities are true I may stick with it.
Buddy at Oakland Center said he worked an Aloha -700 today heading to Victorville, CA (to be mothballed?).Trash8Mofo said:On the bright side, if you wanna fly a Boeing, and earn 6 digits as an FO, Island air is the fastest way to get to Aloha. Aloha IS the best kept secret around. Excellent upgrade oppertunity, brandnew 737-700s, and possibly 787s. That said, Aloha is also the fastest way to get you furloughed, which is why this thread belongs here.
My God it's always good to hear your positive spin on AQ. It may be total BS but, hey, if you're dreaming, you might as well dream big. 787s.............Trash8Mofo said:On the bright side, if you wanna fly a Boeing, and earn 6 digits as an FO, Island air is the fastest way to get to Aloha.

Yep. Save yourself the $$ you'd spend to fly out here. If you only come here for the quick upgrade (that won't happen), you won't like it and you'll likely not fit in. In fact, for what you'll make as a first year FO and the cost of living, if you're not living here with your family already, I wouldn't recommend making the move.av8tortype said:Well, just cancel your interview then. LOL!
