Hired at United Airlines

I can't Thank You enough for helping me achieve my dream of flying for United! I have been passing your name and FAPA around to everyone I know.. I have been telling them don't wait, get ahold of you and do the prep! I hope they take my advice. Only problem is I don't want to over work you with all the preps coming your way..
