    The new airline thread

    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

    The new airline thread

    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

    Commanders are dropping like flies this year

    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

    The new airline thread

    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.

    ADSC Waiver to Retire

    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.

    Latest Movies

    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.

    Airline hiring prep, gouge, advice

    Ret. AF, hired at UA in Jul 15. I did all the prep (ECIC, job fairs, sim prep, etc.) and the one thing I always tell people that I believe got me the call was using an application review service. There's a few out there, pick one and drop the $99. Can't say with 100% certainty it made the difference, but I got 3 calls within weeks after having my apps on file for over a year.
