Trans States has ALREADY furloughed (a couple handfulls are on furlough now I believe). So if these are your only choices, the decision has been made for you.

The only thing that worries me about Pinnacle is what the outcome of the NWA RFP will be for the CRJ flying. Pinnacle may not retain all of those aircraft. Luckily, however, attrition is so high there, that even the loss of several airplanes to another airline would probably mean you would stand a fair chance of not being furloughed.

There are a lot better options out there for regionals if that is your chosen path. I would try to expand your options beyond just these two right now.

Forget that you ever interviewed with TSA your life will be much better. Try for XJT or AWAC or SKW
