Re: Out of State Hiring for Airlines

No, if you meet their qualifications they will consider you. Obviously if it's a full-time above the wing position they assume you know that it will require relocating to the hiring site unless it is driving distance. If they have tons of qualified candidates, they may pass on you because of your l...

Re: Detroit air service discussion - 2018

May statistics are out. WW carried 3108 pax in their first full month of service, that's not great. This number is enplanements only, isn't it? Also, it's 4x per week, so something like 194 passengers per flight. Am I interpreting this report correctly? I'm researching that, if it's 194 it's not bad.

Hello all, I don't normally post on this part of the forum so bear with me if it's not the right question.
