Especially at Boeing, coz I heard they do have something and I was surprised. I know some airlines do, but then they often require CFI with multi or something like that and on top of that they usually have a contract with a specific college etc. Any such programs with airlines worth looking into? And I would really appreciate any info about Boeing, their website does not list any such thing right now, but do they ever? I am sure it would be highly competitive though.

If you know the right people, you can more than likely get a week long shadowing opportunity at any major/national/regional airline. Heck, knowing the right people and getting the right recommendation can cinch most anything short of a job in the right seat. Otherwise, it's limited to the minimums required for internships as posted on the airline's website and in some cases yes, contractual agreements with specific colleges.

If landing is about "kissing" the ground, you just about raped it.

Well I met someone randomly at a restaurant and it was he who asked me what I do, then told me to send him my resume after telling me he works for Boeing. I just completely went blank, even forgot to ask what he does there. I just arrived in Seattle 2 days ago and had just checked Boeing's website and as expected had not found anything worth getting excited about so I assumed they don't have anything to offer. Being out of touch for almost 2 years now, I am not in a very good position for a shot anyway. But who knows where this leads to.
Just a week long?? Not that I am confident I can get it *whisper*
...but that kinda blew the bubble.
What kinda work do you do during the internship?
On my asking he said, you'd obviously not be flying but helping in making/testing procedures etc. Wonder what they'd look for in a candidate.
