I know it's new and exciting, but you can polish a turd all you want, it's still a turd. It's better than a regional, but you're still gonna watch your peers pass you by at the "real majors" while you're at a glorified regional.
That's exactly what they are and will most likely always be. "A glorified regional"...

It is important to subtract out the sub contracted flying performed by Skywest/Horizon. It paints a truer picture of size and growth that matter. In 2000 we operated 500 mainline flights.... I think we might be up to 550 today...50 additional flts in 17 1/2 years is not much....Add in pre merger Virgin...and that is the size that matters.....Pretty small airline when you put it that way....

sooo, anyone know if they're still assigning classes to those in the pool? Last we heard on here was a July 17th class for those who interviewed in January. Any updates??

Crickets over here. Nobody in my interview group that wasn't in the March class hasn't said anything about being assigned a class date either. Based on what I've heard, those being placed in the July 17 class should hear within a couple weeks.

I was a late January CJO.

We will soon have the same problems as the regionals. No one will want to work here.

Alaska IS a glorified regional! If someone meets mins here, he/she can get a job at a real legacy and make more money, have better qol and a ridiculously superior retirement...

OK we get it...OCCP you hate Alaska with a passion. Got it. Thanks. Maybe you and Yetifan can start your own Alaska bashing thread and invite your Virgin haters.

No bashing on my end. Just stating fact. Sometimes the truth hurts...

You are 100% wrong, my friend. I don't hate it. I like my job a lot and I like my coworkers. I just don't see a bright future.

Look at the industry around you, if you can poke your head out of the SeaTac bubble. Every single mainline carrier out there has something better to offer than us whether it be money, scope, movement, or growth or whatever.

The big dogs have top tier pay, rules, retirement, equipment, lots of movement.

Places like spirit and frontier may not have high pay but have a relatively quick upgrade (if you want to take it) and a lot of growth.

The combined new Alaska has none of that. You will see your future opportunities fly away on a Skywest e175 crewed by 25 year olds with a better schedule than you.
