So NATCO said the pool would be flushed April of 09... What's the rumor and conjecture out there as to whether any of us poolies will get on board before that?
The reason is that they don't need them now with the schedule as it is for the winter. By the time spring rolls around, those decisions will be Delta's as the DCC will be in Oct or Nov. If I were to guess, I would say that any hiring will come from both pools, and then any interviews that were set up and then cancelled will be reinterviewed as necessary.Why wouldn't NWA just hire out of their pool, since they will be operating as two separate airlines for a while anyway???
I think that people in the pool may get in the back door to DAL. It depends on Delta legal. There are a few people I know who failed a portion of the DAL interview that are hired at NWA and in the pool. Hiring these people from the pool at NWA would lead to a prescience for all of the people DAL has turned down. Lots of legal tight rope with that one. .
With the current economy, I wouldn't leave to go start over at a regional. Be glad you have a job right now with so many others furloughing.here's a question. i'm "in the pool" for NWA. if i left my prop job to get some jet time with say, mesaba or compass... just saying... would that hurt my chances of being called for a class..whenever that may or may not be..(thinking about the flow through agreements and bypassing those in line..)
True...I guess it depends on how the flow through is set up. Do Compass pilots have to interview again or are they basically mainline pilots when hired. If so then the interview standard at both should by pretty similar.Doesn't a flowthrough nullify the validity of a rigorous interview process?
