Come on man... Iíll make it real easy. 17-20 day trips. 10-24 hour layovers. 30-50 hours per month.

No growth, no upgrade. Min pay of 62 hours, no CBA on the horizon, lotta night flying.

last new hire class had 1 person in it.

the old saying in rounders ď if you canít spot the sucker, youíre itĒ

We carry the world. LOLOL

Why do you want to avoid the regionals? Youíll make more money and upgrade sooner at a regional. You will also fly more and have a much better schedule at a regional. We have 747 pilots leaving Atlas for the regionals right now. You will also have much more job security at any regional. At the current trajectory I believe that Atlas/Southern will probably furlough in the near future. I personally donít feel comfortable with my position 500ish up the Atlas seniority list. Please do your due diligence before accepting a job at Southern/Atlas.

Yes, why are you trying to avoid the regionals? They arenít that bad in comparison to Southern Air.....

Regionals suck if you have to commute.

So does Southern Air.... I'd love to see a 4 on 3 off schedule where they're Gatewaying you into position on their terms on your 0 and 5 day. I'd love to see that schedule from Portland.... That sounds about as miserable as any commute I could imagine and the taxes on that would be terrible.
