Anyone have rumors/info regarding: UAL, New-Hire Classes, CRJ deliveries?

Just wondering what was behind their stock rating being raised from "hold" to "buy".

That's no big thing, it is probably an Investment Firm looking to make a quick buck. Then as everyone starts to jump on the bandwagon they bail out leaving all the day traders deep in debt. It happens all the time on Wall Street.

Good News HopeFully

Just received this internal message today reminding us to ensure our bids are what we really want. They usually do this before announcing classes, so maybe some of these will run. They just announced two RJ classes 8/19 and 9/9. Below is part of the message I received.

"As a reminder, these classes and class sizes are tentative. CRJ Classes 9/30/02,10/21/02,11/11/02,12/02/02, and 12/30/02 EMB Upgrade 9/9/02 and 10/7/02. EMB New Hire 9/10/02,10/09/02 and 11/05/02.

Good luck to all the poolies out there, hope this gives you some hope.

Sure hope you're right!

That's great potential news. . . The latest rumor I had heard was no hiring/classes for one year.

Do you know how many are in the new hire pool, and if they plan on running smaller new-hire classes like the rumors of several months ago indicated?

Any ideas on when they might resume interviewing?
I attended the open-house fair last spring, and am still patiently awaiting the call.

Skywest???

Now that Skywest is opening up a jet domicile in Tuscon will that lead to more jobs or are they just cashing in Brazillias for more jets? I hear there will be 30 crews 2 pilots/ 1 flight attendant so I guess 60 jobs and that ir will be fully operational by dec. 2002. So does any one know what that will mean for hiring?

I too went to the March job fair in LA passed the written, got the "You will be interviewed e-mail" and have not heard anything.

I keep updating every 90 days and keep hoping! I feel that it won't kill me to build more time and experience but somethings got to give!

Also if anyone knows whats the deal with Scenic in LAS? I have heard that a lot of pilots that work there end up at Skywest eventually. Was up in Valle N. AZ recently and saw 5 twin otters parked do they just fix em there or are they in storage?

Barondriver,

Yep, I got it three or four weeks after the fair. So I guess now we just wait and see what happens regarding their hiring.
