I work the NJA side, I can't comment on that stuff, but you should be aware that all NJI FO's will come from the NJA seniority list after Nov 21st, 2008. (Assuming that the integration has not taken place by then.)
Depends where you are based and seat. I'm based in new england and morally flexible.
I've done about 4 tours this year domestic.
Of course i get to be the crossing queen instead of just sitting.
I came from the A to the I side so I've seen both sides.
NJI and NJA are two individual companies with different pilot groups (for a little longer) NJI only has 7 on 7 off oh and in response to your other post there is no consistency to the 18 day schedule at NJA. You could do 8 on 5 off, 4 on 3 off then do a 6 on 4 off. There are even two day trips sometimes. You will 99 percent of the time be gone those 18 days. I home reserve day is a rare treat???? On the website it says there are three schedules, 7 on 7 off, 15 day flex and 18 day fixed. Am I missing something here?
