I heard there is a possibility of a small class near the end of Jan or first part of Feb.

But that could all change with any small variable that hits the market.

I have no idea if that would require new interviewees, or if we have a pool to draw from.

I just train them, I don't hire them.

I bet you would love it you little Skywest dirtbag. You might want to wish for a major to be hiring. They may have a higher pay scale for flying a DC-9. How does the "over-ride" work again for the CRJ-900?

Wow, excuse me for wishing to get off reserve. How dare I? What am I supposed to want? For us to furlough? Would that make you happy? I guess I am a dirtbag for wanting a better QOL?

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't Mesa have a higher hourly rate than Skywest for the 900?

You don't disagree with Moroni Metro. He da man. And yes, he hates skywest enough that he would be happy to see you without a job....if you work for skywest. Better yet...Tell you what, why don't ya head on down to phoenix on a Thurs. night and go the The Library. Rock all night with the GStringer, and maybe, if you're lucky Moroni will buy you a beer. And then, and only then can you understand the Moroni Metro....Good luck!

Skyw often has more reserves in each domicile than Pinnacle has systemwide. Obviously they hired a lot in 2008 expecting something to happen that hasn't happened yet... I'd like them to start hiring too so I can apply, but I don't see it happening anytime soon - especially when Midwest bites the bullet and those pilots need to be reabsorbed.

Please people, the only thing to discuss is the HNL -700 domicile. Chips is building a condo complex on the north shore for us and I just got appointed to the FA selection committee. It's going to be sweet.... you'll see.

mmmmno.

Hourly payscale is higher. Not to mention profit sharing here at SkyW which bumps me up a few more bucks and hour. Stock purchase plan is awesome. I could probably get really specific here but don't have the energy.

Wishing other pilots out of a job, way to uphold the "professional image." People with that kind of attitude have no business being a professional pilot.
