Exactly. People keep talking about floodgates opening but the reality is one small hole has opened and it is bottleneck jammed with pilots. Between the regionals, LCCs, corporate, 91, military, etc, there are more than enough pilots for legacy/major airlines for the next 10 years. We'll see what happens after that. I still think there will never be a shortage. Oil, Iran, Syria, Israel, another attack here on US soil, US dollar no longer the reserve currency, and a host of other potential problems always exist to keep our industry in a up/down cycle.
