That article is just self preservation posturing. The regionals would love nothing more than to lower hours requirement back 250-500 to support paying lower wages (readjusting supply and demand curve and paying wages commencerate with experience) to extend the supply of pilots 5 additional years (and keep the RAA afloat).

If they want to make the airlines great again, It's going to take $100k/year first year FO pay and $400-500k a year CA pay to entice the general population to start entering the system at rates to fix the supply problem.
