Just wondering if anyone currently at SWA could let us know how many pilots Southwest has right now. If the 650 to be hired is true, I'm just wondering what kind of seniority we might have by the end of next year. Thanks!

Magic,

I've got lots of friends at SWA and they say there are in excess of 3200 pilots now.

Hope this helps...

Currently the junior most person sits at the bottom of a list of 4257 pilots. I've been at SWA for a little more than 2 years & have over 1000 pilots below me just for a gouge. Hope that helps,

Chase is correct, aprox 4200 + with plans on having 8500-9000 total pilots by 2012 with 700 aircraft.
