### How many basketballs would fit in this room?

Since the position is for a revenue management position, the interviewer will want to see that you can think through the math in a practical way. Don't guess. Instead, think aloud as you work out the answer. Here's a simple way to get a rough estimate of the number of basketballs that will fit in the room. Estimate the size of the room. Let's say it is about 10' x 10', with an 8' ceiling. Now, estimate the volume required for one basketball. To get a rough answer, don't get fancy with equations and dealing with the shape of the basketball. You may not be sure of the diameter of a basketball, but you have a rough idea. To make the math simple, figure that the ball is about 1' in diameter. The ball is the same width in all directions, so it takes up roughly 1 cubic foot of volume. How many cubic feet in the room? 10 time 10 time 8, or 800. So, there's room for approximately 800 basketballs. If I were interviewing a candidate for this type of position, I'd be very pleased if the candidate could think through that answer. But if this were a position for a role that involved more sophisticated math, such as a data analyst or engineering position, I would expect the candidate to go further and discuss how the estimate could be improved. The next step would be accounting for the exact dimensions of the room and basketballs. And an engineer should be aware of dense packing arrangements that could fit more basketballs into the room.

That depends. Inflated or deflated ?

How many need to fit?

### Sell me your pen. Tell me a time you did something for someone and you didn't expect anything in return. Why American? If you were CEO of American how would you improve American Airlines day 1?

after the phone interview, how long did it take to call you for the f2f interview? Less

I did it last night, I feel confident about it. It was pretty mucy exactly what I thought it would be, just different format. Hoping for a call about the interview. Less

I can't really give you any help, but I can tell you every test is different. Make sure to relax and read the directions first. If you didn't get everything right, that is okay there not looking for a 100%. Good Luck! Less

### How much money did residents of DFW spend on gasoline in 2008?

DFW is an airport code not a city code. How many people live in the airport? Zero. How much did they spend on gasoline? Zero. Less

In addition to gas needed for personal transportation, there is also the cost of gas for home use, and any gas used by municipalities or other publicly-funded services. That said, I do believe the desired response would include guestimating and showing your reasoning for each part of the answer. Less

They're trying to test your estimation &amp; reasoning skills. Even if you're wrong, estimate the population of Dallas, the proportion of regular drivers, the average number of miles driven per day * 365, the average mpg (which would be quite high in Dallas given the number of big cars there) and the cost per gallon. Before the interview, practice estimation skills in general in various situations. Less

### If a friend asked you to recommend an accountant, what would you tell him/her?

No, I have not heard anything yet. I am hoping to hear something this week. If anyone who interviewed in July 2016 gets a call, please share your experience Less

I received an email response from the inquiry I made. Here is the structure of the response: All selections have been made at this time. No further selections will be made. When we close out the package we will send you an updated email. That was the response I received by asking I want to know the status of the RA interview I attended in July 2016. But the problem is that I couldn't read from their response whether I have been selected or not. Less

Today was supposed to be the tentative start date. I also sent an email, but never received a response. Less

### You are in a garage sale, you're selling your TV for 100 and your neighbor is selling the exact same TV for 50, what should you do?

In response to your eg with AA flight vs Jet Blue, you need to ask yourself, are you profitable selling a ticket at \$50? If not you can't just drop your price to compete and a loss. The garage sale scenario was strictly 2 tv's in the neighborhood. If one is sold and your tv is the only tv left, there's no competition, also you can still justify your price with other incentives, maybe free delivery. I was given this answer in class from a professor who was once in the airlines. I hope this helps. Less

Drop price to \$50. Its a Nash equilibrium.

don't get in a price war, keep price high there's only 2 tv's for sale. Probably offer free delivery Less

### Very straight forward.

Did you hear anything back from them yet?

Nope, not yet :(

Same same. I prob gonna leave it alone and move on... :(

### What route would you start and why?

Have they started giving out offers yet?

I was wondering the same thing... I've yet it hear anything as well.

good luck to the both of us then!

### Explain at least 2 things which are affecting the Airlines industry today financially.

I explained about rising costs of fuel, and increased regulations.

What about the telephone number interview?

The shutdown of the entire economy because of Coronavirus is the main reason. I can say the Airlines industry is particularly very vulnerable to events such terrorism, political instability and natural disaster. Less

### Why Aeromexico?

How did you apply online? Can you give the website I been trying to apply but the girls in Aeromexico never give me the website to apply Less

Es una empresa bastante en importante dentro del aeropuertos dentro de México y a nivel mundial es una empresa que en lo personal creo que te ayuda a crecer tanto laboral como personalmente. Less

Because I dream of working here!
