Just got off the phone with JB at SWA. Looks like they are starting to ask for updates to their paperwork. It sounds like it may be final background check material, we'll see. I asked her about upcoming classes but she's still hanging on to August at the earliest like we've all heard. I guess it's good they're starting the ball rolling again. Maybe they are getting ready to start classes soon...

Poolie since 10/01

Question for qxeplt

Noticed it has almost been a year since you interviewed...maybe they have a time limit on how old their background info can be....??? Wonder if they have to do anohter FAA or employer checks?

Hey Guys.

I did not get a call from JB but I did get all the update forms in the mail today.

It included the following:

Supplemental Employment Form
Air Carrier and other Records Request
FAA Records Request
NDR Records Request

The form for the Drug test was in their again also.


I am a November Poolie. I am curious if all the poolies got these update forms or maybe just the people relatively close to the ladder to get out of the pool.


Anyways... Hopefully we'll all get dried off soon!!


:eek:

No letter, no forms. I wonder if that's any indication that classes are about to begin?

Got the same package from SWA today in the mail. Looks like they are sending these out to lots of us. Have been in the pool since November and am under stop loss.

Hope to see all of you in the cabana drinking cool-aid shortly.

I haven't gotten an update package yet and I'm pretty far up the list (KT). Just finished IOE at FedEx. Will my FedEx black leather jacket work at SWA? I've got some decisions to make soon.

Do I understand that statement correctly KTHornet?

I got the same packet in the mail today. I interviewed in late Jul and entered the "pool" in early Dec. :)

Happy to be in the pool, and if filling this paperwork gets me that much closer to the ladder..........sorry................. I was filling out the forms, then so-be-it.

See ya in Dallas

SWA Letter

Only letter I got was a couple weeks ago from Lindsey telling me no new interviews are scheduled any time soon and only updates needed are Type and contact changes.

Been talking to buds on property and the rumors I hear are possibly 1 class in June, 2 classes in July and 2 in Aug. All unconfirmed rumors. but interesting to say the least.

Good luck to you in the pool, hurry up and get out and make room for the rest of us!

I haven't received any forms. I am also guessing it is some kind of a 1 year update thing, based on interview date. That is approx. when most of the background checks began. I interviewed in Sept; pooled Nov. Hope to be in Dallas to watch the Cowboys on TV this year!

Hey guys,

Do you think this is the notorous final background check that we all hear of in our initial letters? If so we are all very close...
