Are you guys still open?

Hi @rubinedan! Yes we most certainly are open.

Applied as a Routes Manager :)

Looks gr8
We’re happy to be alliance partners with u #LYVA

Sorry to interrupt…but I submitted an application and I don’t know if y’all are active or not.

Please message a staff member or the VA account directly next time. Replies like yours are quite pointless for the public to view and clog up VA threads which is exactly what they don’t want.
