Air Mike Question!

I've got a question regarding a couple of Air Mike (CO Micronesia) routes.

Firstly,

Who usually works CMI 961 which operates GUM-NRT?

I know Air Mike's base is in Guam, but there is no 767 domicile there, only 737.

The flight attendants are obviously from the Micronesia division on this route, but what about
the pilots?

Are these the same guys that do the flight that originates in IAH as CO 1?

Also, what about CO 2 on the GUM-HNL route? Is it the same crew that came in as CO 1?

Thanks!

I was recently flying Air Mike MNL/ROR/YAP/GUM/MNL in Nov on a multistop around micronesian islands... I flew in J class and spent some time talking with the crew who looked ancient (compared to a typical EK crew) and worn out. One woman, based in Guam like most crew in these parts, told me she'd worked these CO micronesian flights for 25 years. Her face said so as well unfortunately! I cant speak for the pilots, but I would assume since all the flights were on 737s then they would have to be based in GUM. I very much doubt you'll see the same crew going all the way to the mainland.

Anyway at GUM I only saw CO 737s and other airlines like NW 757s and a China Airlines airbus. As I boarded my last flight back to MNL I spotted the same FA I'd been speaking to a month earlier walking along the concourse presumably for her next flight. Small world!

1. All FA's are MIC employees.
2. Correct, only 737 base.
3. Pilots are IAH based. (I dont think the EWR turn is mixed in there)
4. Not sure of the routing now that NGO is out of the mix, but I believe its something like a 7 day trip. IAH-HNL (ron) - GUM (ron) - NRT-GUM (ron) - HNL (ron) - IAH
5. No they swap out for rest.



okay, I'm waiting for the rich to spread the wealth around to me. Please mail your checks to my house.

All the flights are not 737 though. Air Mike operates the 764 to HNL and NRT.

Thanks for your replies!

I kind of figured that the 737s would be all GUM based, just wasn't sure about the 764 because I've only taken CO 1 as far as HNL.

I'd love to do the island hopper route between HNL and GUM eventually!

Correct. I should have phrased that better, I meant all the flights I had taken on my itinerary were on 737s!

The B767 cockpit crews are IAH based, previously (2000-2002) EWR crews flew the legs also. The B737 cockpit crews are all domiciled in GUM.

One of my friends interviewed with CO and she was offered a position, however when I asked her where she would be based she told me GUM. So is inflight the same between the two divisions, union wise as well?

I figured they would be IAH based, because the EWR flight routed EWR-HNL doesn't continue on to GUM.

CALPilot, do you know any guys who do the IAH-HNL-GUM-NRT-GUM-HNL-IAH Route?

What is it, like a 7 day trip?

Nope,,, no maybe, they are IAH pilots. If it was EWR I would be doing them, and I am not, I stop in HNL.

Yes, it comes in the 6 day, and 8 day pairing, very productive from a flying standpoint.

I'm not sure, but I think I remember reading that after CO1 flies from IAH to HNL. It is then "rented" to Air Mike for the continuing service to GUM and beyond. Once it comes back to HNL as CO2 it is then returned back to CO.

Interestingly enough, if you are flying CO1 from IAH to GUM you may be required to change aircraft in HNL to another 764. This also may apply on the return.
