Actually, the best deal is to get into the exhibition hall at the annual WIA conference!!! (March 11-13, 2004 in Reno, NV) Not only do you get the face time you want, there are tons of freebies that the companies give away. Each year I walk away with bags of promotionals from the airlines & manufacturers.
Unfortunately, the early registration deadline has passed, but it's waaaay better than Air Inc. In fact, they usually have a both at WIA. Any airline/company recruiting is usually present, even those who it's hard to get resumes in with. They also have numerous seminars for job seekers.
