I talked with Gina when they asked me for a drug test last week, and she mentioned the possibility of a class in may as well.

since?
Maybe the next class will be sooner......
Momma always said I was a bit slow but still damn cute. As such, I'm really not grasping what you mean. First, I'm a little unsure why you've posted that Aloha info in the SWA Pool thread. Could you expound a little more?

Cause he thinks SWA may buy Aloha's operation. I would think this could be difficult to achieve considering UAL is on their Board. Then again they may want to have a sale of assets.

Who knows.

I'm not saying Southwest will buy Aloha. But from looking at history. Southwest has always been a company that "Thinks outside of the box". When everyone scales back and retreats, Southwest charges. They have always been a proactive company and when they see a deal, they jump on it. Aloha flies 73's, the rest of the industry is scaling back, capacity is at an all time high... The business is there, it just hasn't been profitable under archaic legacy business models. Also, island hopping, thats basicly how they started.

spoke to Diane today, she said there are a few confirmations that did not get a reply back yet for the 23 class, she also got a confirmation of two classes in May. Looks like the outlook for the poolies is looking a little better. :beer:

Wow that could be 48 more in May. Anyone at SWA able to shed light on why the need for so many? Could some of the delivery a/c be coming for summer?

Great news for poolies, good luck!

I bet that one of the classes in May will be a small class of returning over 60 guys. I flew with the SWAPA VP recently and he mentioned that there were some that were not able to start class tomorrow. We'll see. Hopefully the rumor of classes in May is true.

A friend in the know says that the sims wil be pretty much booked up from August throught the end of the year for training. This has to do w/ training all pilots at the company.

I have a 1 July pool date. On Monday afternoon PD said I was "4-5 classes away" after April. Hopefully on the cusp dropping into the fourth class!

FWIW, PD also said 4-5 deferals since 1 Jan and 5-6 declines.

Hi everyone!

I've been lurking on this thread (and on the original thread) for quite some time now...going on 10 months now! I got the call for the April 23rd class from Diane!! I am a 6/10 poolie. I am so glad to finally be drying off!!! I really wasn't expecting anything until August so I am really excited to be in the last April class!!!
