If you want to go airline, and have always wanted a career in it....GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Seniority is everything and all your doing is possibly setting yourself to be furloughed one day when your airline lays off 80 guys, and you were the 80th because you hemmed and hawed an extra class date that had you taken you would have been 79th and not furloughed. Lines, reserve, upgrade time..... GO.

Also counter to what others think, I as many others did took a pay cut for our first regional jobs. instructors: Don't think that "sitting reserve in ORD" is something to be embarrassed about. in the end of the day, that person has worldwide free travel, flies for an airline, and is closer to landing a major job than an instructor is no matter how big the instructor's ego is.
