Hey Everyone! I was wondering if anyone had any information on Piedmont Airlines?

I was invited to an interview and I'm curious to know what to expect.

Also, how easy is it to get LGA as a base? Does anyone know if Philly is a base??

Any information will be greatly appreciated. Thanks :)

Hello! I used to work for PDT and maybe I can give you some info. When I left, LGA was a fairly junior base and easy to get. PHL is not currently a base. The bases are LGA, Harrisburg PA, Salisbury MD, New Bern NC, Charlottesville VA, Roanoke VA. Even so--they do flights constantly from LGA-PHL so it's not a difficult commute. I really enjoyed the company and the crews are great! Just as long as you don't mind the equipment, you'll really like the company! Good luck!

I just got an invite to the interview as well. I do not know what to do. I have already been offered employment with PSA which is also us air express. Any suggestions or comments??

You know, it's all based on your preference. They are both wholly owned so they have the same exact benefits. As far as I know--PDT has a slightly better contract. Now the BIGGEST difference is the equipment. PSA fly jets and Piedmont flies turbo props (propellers). Also PSA only has 3 bases, CLT, DAY, TYS. And as far as aviation news goes, PSA is *supposedly* furloughing. Who knows. Again, all based on what you want! I had an amazing time at PDT and if certain situations didn't arise, I would be there to this day! Choose what works for you! Good luck in your decision.

Us Airways has a Charlotte base and so does PSA. Try either of those airlines.

May I ask two questions?

Do they provide hotel and travel accommodations to attend the training?

Do they provide travel to attend the interviews?

Thank you for answering my questions.

Yes and yes. They provide everything except the cost of food. I believe they are still doing training at HQ which is in Salisbury. If not, it's somewhere in Charlotte. You will have a roommate, and generally the rooms have microwaves, fridges and stuff. You also get paid during training.

They will fly you to training. I think you're flown space positive.

As for the interview, you are flown in on S2 business pass (which isn't 100% space positive, but it is MUCH better than a standard stand by pass).

Things may have changed from when I interviewed, but that's all the information I have.

Good luck :)

Hi, maybe I can help clarify. You are traveling on flight 4409 from LGA-PHL. Your return flight is 4234 from PHL-LGA. I think the EWR is just there so they know where you are coming from, I would disregard it, especially considering their is no flight number associated with it. (by the way, both flights are on PDT, so it will give you a taste of the airline)

Thank you.. Now.. how would I get there? lol.

Well, I'm guessing they want you to drive to LGA...but in my honest opinion, I'd just drive from EWR to PHL (It's less than 100 miles, so depending on traffic I'd say give yourself 2 and a half hours minimum). And if you don't drive, the train actually goes right to the PHL terminal and from there you can catch the van to the Holiday Inn (if that is where they are still conducting the interviews). Good luck!

hey Karen , i live in perth amboy nj central nj. well thats what my ticket said it was confusing so i called and they explained it to me. well i left tuesday from lga to philly in airway express it took about 43 minutes. and i stood at the quality hotel i did get a small discount. the interview was on wednesday and i didnt even wake up!!! my alarm didnt go on. I was so upset so i asked the recruiter Mr. trout if i can reschedule it for next week and he said yeah. so im going next week but im leaving wednesday because i do not want to pay again to stay at the hotel the night before. I just turned 19 so i think we are the youngest lol!! but you should get a ride to lga its not far from jersey city. i got a ride to the airport. plus if we do get hired to that base were going to have to drive their because they do not have a base in newark.
