    The new airline thread

    My lack of sensing tone on the internet aside...I did not perceive you as being a d!ck. My good luck wishes to you and all is genuine. I updated 6 apps for 2.5 years in the black vacuum of the airline app websites. I watched younger less qualed dudes getting called, hired, and starting dream careers. I chose to live vicariously through their triumph instead of being a whiny b!tch. It was the only sane choice. I helped guys were I could, and it was reciprocated when able. All I mean is...good luck. Once you break through the HR electron war, the job on the other side is TOTALLY 100% WORTH IT.

    That’s a good attitude. The job is an apex predator. It needs no introduction. This HR goatrope makes it look like amateur hour. Stay the course man, and good luck.

    The new website is totally stupid. You applicants are in for a firestorm of bvllsh!t trying to refine your details. I'm speechless at what a lackluster job the company did in taking control of the app process. Hope you had a recent pdf print of your PC app, since nobody told you that your entire old app would be deleted and "synced" to the new system. Good luck NT, and anyone else enduring the pain of transferring their entire app. The flying job is worth it...but this sh!tty website is ridiculous. Previously the smoke/mirrors of UPS's website was the cryptic winner of worst airline app. Nice job FDX...your app is now officially the worst POS of all the majors. I'm sure with AAL's highly agile hiring practices (no sarcasm), we won't lose great guys who freakin give up on this BS.

    For everyone’s SA...yesterday FedEx changed their application website away from PilotCredentials. Link below. If you had an app on file, they’re saying it all transferred. Login ASAP and make sure that data sync worked! Good luck to all. Boxes > people. https://careers.fedex.com/pilot

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Ignore trolls. He will eventually go away. Unless we ban him first.

    I’ve blocked this clown... if we can’t kick him off the board, we can at least not quote him. For the love of all that’s holy. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Should be 1 Oct, first day of the new FY unless your local leadership holds you to 7-yr ROPMA. Which is stupid if they do.

    Well said.

    Along these lines, I'm hearing (from multiple sources) that Delta specifically is now avoiding the "Guard / Reserve Captains" due to the trend of dropping copious mil leave soon after hiring. That stinks for all the hopefuls. My immediate thought (if the airlines are going to play that game) would be that a 15+ yr Maj/LtC is a bigger threat. They are the one within striking distance of possibly getting an AD retirement after a big chunk of orders on staff/etc. Not the line flying Captain still within his UPT commitment. In any case, rumors and innuendo are worth exactly what you paid for them. I heard it from the bus driver who's cousin walks the babysitter's dog for the #3 decision maker at Delta. So like I said, very close hold.

    Seattle airliner stolen and crashed

    No glorification for this POS from me. He was a fvcking criminal. Period. Thankfully there was no further loss of human life during his commission of a host of felonies. He could have driven the plane into the Space Needle. I don’t give a shit if he or the Germanwings piece of human excrement needed more coddling. That criminal made it harder for the rest of the professionals left in the wake of a major security breach.

    It's Official, OCPs are Coming!

    I’m proud to wear a comfortable uniform. Also don’t need a zipper suit or a leather jacket for the world to know I’m a pilot. Would rather live in obscurity anyway. Flying cargo has greatly increased my antisocial tendencies. Who gives a shit? The OCPs rock for hot wx ops, also known as EVERY current deployed location.
  13. Details irrelevant. RUN.
  14. That is the most succinct impact. And those early in career 7-dayers will be non-current. And the regionals rejoiced. That party will be short lived as well, since they will be more qualified for the regional job than those conducting the regional interview. A touch and go back to currency, then move on. So what did this clause removal really accomplish? Shortened the kill chain decision matrix for 7-day opting. Neat job with that loophole Big Blue...now staffers simply won’t come back to the squadron. EVER.
  15. The clause that protected all guys/gals coming off a staff assignment to retrain back into their airframe. The Bobs “fixed the glitch”.
