Upgrade AA 7-9 years on narrow body

Upgrade at many ACMI, 2-4 years

Top heavy pay 767,777 around 280 ph AA

Top 767/777 at a few ACMI $295ph, both over 12 year period.

One requires commuting to crashpads while on reserve, the ACMI buys real tickets to/from work and you never need a crashpad.

This is just but one example, there are many.

The industry is changing quickly, as we told them it would, there are great jobs out there already, and others are improving their wages and conditions regularly to attract and retain pilots. Flow through programs are losing value everyday.

Look around carefully. With your time and experience going back to start over at a regional isnít the only option, nor is it the best option.

12 yr 330/787/777 pay at AA is $333.

You would be nuts to choose any acmi over any one of the legacies.
