Which is where my point about the "high, med, and low" part comes in.......

In one of m prior lives we had ZED's as well, with the "LOW" being emphasized.

Meaning just as you said. No parents, and not eligible for upgrade.

With hotels you can usually maintain Silver or equivalent status on many and Gold on a few since we stay at a lot of them. On airlines you can maintain Silver status on several and higher status if you can concentrate on fewer. I have stayed platinum on Delta for several years now with little difficulty. Also, I can use the 60,000 miles annually that it takes to maintain Skylounge membership and still gain miles in my total each year. Really, the airline equation is driven mostly by where you live in relation to where your base is. From Montana to most of the places I need be, Delta is most often the best choice anyway.

Congrats! Thanks for the rumor update as well. Did they give you any sense when you might go to class?

Outstanding, good to hear! I got the same call in the 28th as well. Let us know when you get the class date call. I've got a bud there now that said he waited a week.

We have guys still waiting for OE after three months, and those classes were every other month. They cranked up to the every three weeks mode with the June class - wonder how bad it'll get?

Wow... and with that training pay for 5-6 months and probably way more! I may have to rethink where I want to go. Can't feed a family for that long on $1600/month.
I saw that training was $1600/month until completion of IOE, is that before or after taxes, medical, etc? Also, do you get paid per diem during training on top of that training salary?
