Nothing official but on paper and the unions position is that they need to. We hear they are waiting on a few things to line up before an announcement. They like LOR's if you know someone but that is not to say its a must.

Good Luck
 
What are the schedules like? Sorry, rough question. But how many min days off, are lines built consecutive 16-17 on, then 13-14 off? Or more like 7 on, 7 off, etc etc.

Anything is helpful.
 
There will most likely be hiring soon, either at the end of the year or early next year. Training is swamped for the next few months because they are training all the DC10 guys on the MD11 and 747. Also a bunch of junior guys are going from the MD11 to the 747. Current staffing levels leave almost 20 FO seats empty on the MD11 and the 747 is only staffed to 3 airframes and we will end up having 4 airframes by spring time(currently 2 on property and 2 in conversion).Also our new contract (starting October) with Jade is going to eat up a lot of crews as it is an around-the-World charter and requires staging of a bunch of crews. So I would guess we would need at least 30-40 new hires by next summer to meet staffing levels. The CP is currently not accepting LORs but told us that as soon as hiring is announced to send them in, I would say this is the best way to get an interview but people have interviewed without them in the past.

they fly more pax than freight

We do?

9 MD11 F
7 MD11
1 DC10 flying 1 not flying (Both going away)
2 B747-4 BDSF and 2 on the way

That makes 11 freighters to 8 pax birds and by Feb. it should be 13 freighters to 7 pax birds.

None the less, we are an ACMI company and eventhough we have long-term contracts and fly under supplimental 121 we are considered "charter."

Sorry...when I quit it was more pax. Nonetheless, you're right- its charter under supplemental.

Spell check. Use it. Live it. Love it.
