  • For example, the first person who signed up for the job fair will have the number 1 ticket for Spirit, US Airways, Virgin America.  The 50th person who signed up for the job fair will have the 50th ticket for Spirit, US Airways, Virgin America.
  • If desired, you may trade your Take-A-Number tickets with other attendees after you pick up your name badge.

Aero Crew Solutions will be tweeting the "Now Serving" numbers at the event.  There are a couple of different ways to follow the numbers being tweeted online at the job fair.  

  1. The easiest way is to follow us on twitter.  You can create an account at and follow Aero Crew Solutions at "aerocrewsol". 
  2. You can sign up for SMS text messages on your cellphone.  Text the word "followaerocrewsol" to 40404 on a US-based phone would mean I'd start getting SMS updates whenever @aerocrewsol posts a Tweet.  Not all US phone carrier participate in this program.  There are a limited number of texts you can receive per day.  For detailed information visit
