  1. Pretty much every application asks about failed checkrides (and stage checks in some cases) so a Q3 could potentially hurt your chances of even being called for an interview. Not an absolute show stopper, but not ideal either. Fact is most folks have had a bad day (or a bad evaluator) in a 10-20 year flying career so as long as you've got a strong application otherwise it's not really something to stress about.

  2. If a 365 is your biggest stumbling block, try to utilize the 300 in 540 allowance to reset the STRD. That's what I did. Still sucks, but I preferred it. Also, it seems your STRD is at or close to your accession date which implies that you've never been downrange much or at all in 15 years. If that is not correct you should get it adjusted to reflect your time spent TDY OCONUS. Of course, my gouge is 5 years old so if something has changed since then I'm sure someone will chime in.

  3. Probably to shield his neighbors from all the muscle he's building since he's working out in his carport. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  4. Better to just bid reserve and get 75 hours of pay for not flying. That open time is going to get gobbled quickly, esp. this time of year when it's pretty scarce to begin with. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  5. This. Solidly toward the bottom of the Tarantino pantheon. I liked Leo in it, Brad just plays a toned down version of Aldo Raines, and there is no plot. Basically just a buddy movie. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  6. I've run into a few folks that take issue with these kinds of statements and can never figure out why. It is a valid data point for making a decision on whether to commute or not. Are you concerned that mgmt. or some layperson are going to read this and conclude that we are not working enough? Because I'm sure that the poster values his or her time as much as you or I do.

  7. I gotta say...this guy sounds awesome. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  8. If you want to fly as seldom as possible, WB reserve is your best bet. Those guys can go multiple months without flying. Of course it throws your "shortest legs possible" requirement out the window but, hey, nothing's perfect. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  9. Well it opens on the 6th and bid packs are available prior to that (not sure how much prior as I'm a line donor) so if you want to look at it that way then, sure, you know your schedule farther out. But not really. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  10. United FO schedules posted on the 17th for the following bid period which starts on the 1st +/- (usually -) 1- 3 days so not alot of advance notice Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  11. Must've been a while ago. Don't think any majors interview without a 20-something year old HR rep asking "Tell me about a time you hurt someone's feelings..." Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  12. From what I hear tell, SWA has it pretty good in this regard. Maybe cause all their trips seem to be 3 days it makes it easier to plug and play, dunno.
  13. I've seen the post-9/11 GI Bill transfer ADSC waived although it was about 4 years ago. Don't know if things have changed. Guy lost the option to transfer any portion of his benefits, but he was OK with that.
  14. I was underwhelmed. Lots of suspenseful moments that don't pan out. I usually like A24 productions but this one was a waste of time. Thank god for Moviepass.
