Not to hijack the thread, but any idea what Flightkeys software is like?There are two things that seem to be driving all this hiring. One is that the company is expecting over 100 retirements in the next couple of years. Two is that AA wants to replace Sabre FOS as their flight planning system with Flightkeys, and there is a team at AA working on this project as we speak. The timetable I have seen, which I think is overly optimistic, is for 2Q of 2020 for Flight Keys, but I think more realistically it will be 4Q at the earliest since you don't want to introduce a new flight planning system during peak time.
If anyones curious, the breakdown of the class that started this week is:
11 Wholly Owned (Envoy, PSA, and Piedmont all represented)
11 External (4 Republic, 2 SkyWest, and 5 others including Alaska)
And Offers have gone out for the October class as well. Congrats to all who have accepted.
