Sounds like that was taken tonight (evening of Friday the 26th).  The line to depart stretched from 4L down K, up 13R to PE, and back down P to MB.  We pushed back from the gate at 1915 and didn't get off the ground until 2055.  So yeah, it gets pretty boring sitting in this traffic jam.  They filled their boredom with counting lights.  We were trying to calculate how many passengers were in line to take off, and also how much fuel  in $$$ we had burned.

Last I checked on airlinepilotcentral.com it was 600TT and 100ME, but Comair's Pilot Opportunity page would have the latest requirements: http://www.airlineapps.com/transition/45/pilots.asp.

Officially its 600 total with 100 ME and ATP written, but there are many people who are getting hired on with a lot less than that.  Go ahead and apply, couldn't hurt anything.  They use Airlineapps.com for most of thier pilot hiring.
