I don't know but I sent my resume to the Continental Campus Recruiting address. Thanks for the heads up!

There's probably no point pursuing an internship with an airline- they're firing, not hiring.
In the case of NW- their site says MSP is affordable. Well, that's a half-truth: it used to be. Plus, there's the added inconvenience of actually having to live in MSP (not the most cosmopolitan of cities)- the land of the Midwest deep-fried cheese curd.

I did one at AA, was a lot of fun, got to see a lot and learna ton. On ther other hand, it is unpaid, so was quite expensive, but at least helped point me in the right direction and got to meet a ton of great guys.

I spent a semester (January-May 2001) doing a Flight Operations internship at Delta. It was a wonderful experience, and I met a lot of really great people. Unlike other airlines, Delta pays interns, so it was also affordable.

During my internship I got to do a lot of cool things. The best for me was the jumpseating... I had unlimited domestic jumpseat benefits on Delta, and I got to take 3 internation trips (San Jose, Costa Rica, Istanbul, and Rome). I also did a lot of stuff at the office. Some of it was just office work, which is what you find at most internships (typing, xeroxing, etc.), but some of it was really interesting. For example, I helped in revising the IOE guides for the 727 and 737-800, I designed informational handouts on turbulence for 7ER crews, and I designed an information sheet for pilots flying to South America. Above all, I met people... I had several meetings during the semester with Captain Dave Bushy, Senior Vice President of Flight Operations, and I met and spent time with several of the employees in the pilot hiring department, including the pilot interviewers. Overall, I consider it a pretty invaluable experience, and I would highly reccommend it. It's pretty selective, though - there were 16 interns when I was there, and their budget now allows only 7. Students in the FlightOps intern program also have to come from one of the participating schools, which include Purdue, ERAU, UND, Western Michigan, and a few others.
