Also worth pointing out that if you do somehow gain permanent US residency while here and have aspirations of joining a legacy, you will need a bachelors degree to stand any chance.

In regards to any flow through from the American Airlines regional partners to mainline, has anyone actually seen confirmation of this in writing? My understanding of the E3 is that itís employer specific and not transferable, so Iíd be really surprised to see anyone on an E3 flow through.

They want to start 2 newhire classes every two weeks, each with 30 pilots.

Large bonuses now being offered when you upgrade and eventually go to AA, totalling up to $150,000. $30k when you upgrade + $70k when you go to AA + an extra $25k when you go for each year where you're available for 900 hours of work for (maximum of two years). 900 hours is the min guarantee per month anyway so easily achieved just by being on reserve, and includes other qualifying activities such as annual leave/vacation etc.

So if anyone wants to come let me know before you apply and I'll put a recommendation in, and do what I can to help.
Im interested but your private inbox is full unfortunately.

In post # 36 the Op explains that he is in upgrade class and doesn't have time to go through his inbox right now. You guys have to read through all the posts instead of going straight to the end and commenting.

Here is the email below my mate received. He is trying to get in as an E3 applicant. Seems PSA is not sponsoring E3 visas after all.

So the OP said 4 days ago that his company was planning to hire foreigners and you think that it would be implemented by the end of the week?

Surely someone might have thought though to tell the recruitment team of the plan?

Maybe management wanted to let an Australian know to maybe tell his friends to update their CV for an impending E3 recruiting drive?

​​​​​​The OP never gave a time line he just said that his company told him in chat during his upgrade they are planning to hire foreigners. Did people wait? Absolutely not they just started bombarding HR before any official announcement was made.

You didn't post your friends email so not sure of the original text, but depending on the wording the recruiter may have read it as he was requesting sponsorship for a visa. The E3 is not a sponsored visa, it is very different to the sponsored H1B etc. Typically the HR departments of these airlines are pretty big, so this may be a new employee who isn't aware of the impending activation of E3 employment and when she read "sponsorship" she replied with the default email that they use on a lot of emails they get, from those in countries requesting sponsorship for a visa.

Can't send you a PM so it would be great if you could message me please

Until you have a posting history you don't have access to private messaging and adding urls. Far more effective to just leave an email address.

I haven't verified this, but looks like a legit publication

That may be a legit ad as this law firm specializes in immigration law. But the cynic in me says they're just trolling for business using bombastic news headlines as bait:

But the statement about Delta and American was out of context...completely out of context.

I don't know what it is about lawyers, supposed professionals in their fields yet they get away with being slippery, lying snakes for almost their entire career and never get called out. Anything and anyone is fair game if it makes them money.

Do not trust this publication. They'll take your money say whoops, we actually can't do it, see you later.

Plenty of Australians in the US, pleanty of them ask lawyers all the time for options to green cards. Add to that all of the Canadians and Europeans who would love to get a slice of the US aviation market. If an EB2 green card for a pilot was possible, you'd hear about it very quickly. People would be singing it from their rooftops, and the pilot unions here would be losing their collective minds.

That firm is talking nonsense and I hope that they see my response, just so they can read one more time that they are a bunch of snakes who have no business masquerading as a professional entity of any kind.

These guys deserve a dick punch to be honest.
