If the premise of this article is true, then regional FOs should be rail thin and FedEx captains should be obese and can barely fit their chub into that coveted left seat. :D Actually, reading this makes me reach for that bag of Doritos.

I started my regional career at 5'7, ~125lbs. Ended it at 5'7, ~130lbs.

Got a cushy corporate gig and put on 3" to my waist and 15 lbs in about 6 months... I suppose that youth and an Asian metabolism can only go so far...
