I'm guessing if you have 2400 hours of which 2000 are Airbus time (maybe your one of those guys who got hired at 250 hours at Spirit or flew ab-initio in Europe they wave it). Just using an example here but I could see how preffered would apply there.

Also, I know at least one guy got hired without the 500 pic but had 5 type ratings and was currently flying 121 on a heavy. Again, both don't happen often.
Jumping from Spirit to Frontier seems like the equivalent of switching from PBR to Natty. Both are cheap, leave a terrible taste in your mouth, and result in you wondering what the hell happened.
