    As long as you push the right buttons, you'll be Captain soon and upper management shortly. Congratulations!

    Yep. That's the suit. Everyone immediately knows what you're there for.

    What’s his name? That’s pretty impressive! Was he prior military?

    It’s funny. The hiring manager brought us in to a conference room in the beginning and jokingly told us that the people that weren’t wearing blue suits and red ties aren’t going to get the job:D

    Hearty congratulations. Delta's a fine organization, and I wish you the very best.

    And thanks for the shout-out to the Board; we have quite a few here who started out as pilot wannabes, and are now successful pros. The PoA "family" is proud, too!

    That depends on how long it takes Airbus to get their act together and start delivering the A321 NEO’s. They are way behind!

    Congrats and welcome! (and thanks for bumping my seniority up another one)

    I've been on mil leave for 4 years so I can't say my DAL knowledge is very current, but I'm happy to share what I know. With your regional experience you'll get the hang of bidding and all that in about 2 days (I'm still a little clueless). Remember you have a 2 year seat lock but that's only seat, not base so if you get a chance to get the 73, take it no matter where the base is. You'll be able to AE to NYC and likely be based there before you finish training.

    Good luck and welcome to Delta Air Lines!

    Just want to update you all. I’ve been offered a March 3rd class. I’m a little bummed because most of the people that I interviewed with got classes in February but since I’m Endeavor, they are starting to meter us (which they didn’t say was part of the program) but it is what it is. In a few weeks I’ll bid for my base and equipment!

    Congrats and welcome! I'd vote for the 320...makes the transition to 330 much easier later on. :D That said, I certainly understand wanting to fly with your dad.
