Bavarian Chef= NOT FUNNY.

Don't care what you say hypersonic.
Tomcat dudes are not funny.

Except for that Goose guy.

Schiphol - You're right. SWA/FO is the funniest dude on flightinfo. Captmegadeath is the hottest chic and clickclickboom is the whiniest chick. Occam is the resident cunning linguist and Rez is the shop steward.

Lowecur is the Mid Atlantic region Super Seller (girl scout cookies of course) and General Lee is actually from Ohio.

I have puddles in my back yard deeper than flightinfo. But yet we all come back for the chance to turn an inocuous thread into a mil vs civ vs jb vs swa vs alpa vs legacy vs republicans suck vs democrats and their best friends the cheese eating surrender monkey french vs age 65 vs braniff sucks vs is jetblue offering job fairs vs hey where did my thead go vs why can't you spell vs blah blah blah vs up yours you miserable pr1ck.

And then like clockwork, some a$$ comes on to offer the aforementioned opinion as if the epiphany is worth sharing with complete strangers, half of which probably fly 152s with their dad on sat mornings.

This cycle happens about every 2 weeks. Reset the clock. I win.

Oh, I forgot. First question usually asked after the clock is reset:



What was this thread about again?

Sorry to resurrect this slightly old thread, but...

I am waiting on a class date and was curious about where I stand in the pool. They told us that the typed folks go in the pool based on interview date, and the non-typed go in when they are typed. What if the next board (wasn't there one yesterday June 18th?) is AFTER my type date? Do these folks that get selected also get a class date before me? Or do they go behind me? I've heard some conflicting reports and was hoping someone could clear it up. Thanks for any info!

My understanding is this: Let's say you interview in April and get hired without the type. You get the call in May and take your type ride on June 15th. You should go to class with someone who interviewed with the type on June 15th. But I just had a buddy go through this situation and it didn't exactly turn out like this, but it was close. So who knows???

How bout you guys helping out the old SWA/FO from all the injustice on flightinfo.com? Where are my SWAPA brothers when I need them?

Peace out....

Working for the same company and belonging to the same union doesn't mean your "brothers" actually like you or agree with what you say.

Again, I'm embarrassed we work for the same company!!!

If you get hired and have a type at that time you are in the pool before anyone who got hired without the type and got it after you were interviewed.

Just got out of DAL training and I can tell ya that for right now there is a class starting next week and one planned for sometime in July - none in August...

Just spoke with PD today about this very issue. For people typed prior to interview your pool seniority is you interview date. I also confirmed the ONLY class in July is the 18th. SM said they had planned two, thought about 3 and then decided on only one. Tentatively 2 for August at this point but will not be firm until 1st week or two of July.

Does anyone have any idea how hard it would be to commute from Dallas to Vegas? Also, at SWA can you pick up additional trips that don't originate in your domicile or do all of your trips have to originate and terminate in your domicile?

How big is the Vegas domicile going to be? Is it going to go pretty senior? Vegas would work out pretty good for me, so I was wondering how long it would be before a newhire could get back there.

CD

Lots of the old head captains I've flown with seem to think it'll go pretty junior for FO's and that upgrade could be quicker there. (Just line rumors though.)

I think the vacancy bid for Vegas is due in another month or so...we should know more by August!!!

Wow, an actual thread that is informative and not injected with a bunch of "my airline can beat up your airline" jargon.

Thanks to the original OP!!!

Don't know about the specific Dallas to Vegas commute, however, Vegas loads are traditionally pretty high for all airlines.

You can pick up trips in other domiciles, but you bid for open time trips using your system seniority. Anyone in the domicile the trip originates from has priority over you. Many people do it and it works out fine.

Thanks for the info. I'm new to the airline thing and just by reading on here I have a lot to learn.

any idea why they are only having one class for July? Just trying to figure out why the jumping around from 3-1....Hopefully classes will pick back up in august. DO they usually slow training down around summer or over the holidays for future classes? thanks for any insight
