I signed up for the GPI program with all the carriers on there because I figured I had nothing to lose. There is nothing in there that states you canít apply or interview outside of the program though. My worry is them changing it after the fact. Whatís even more eye opening is the lack of response from my chief(s) and SAPA. No one seems to have any idea what the ďfine printĒ is on this whole program. I wanted to get out of it, but I havenít had any success with that.

Anyways, I donít want to turn this into a whole different discussion, but these are all things which have led me to consider an LCC. Especially with Frontiers PHX base. I imagine it will be very senior though so it may be a moot point.

if the Sprontier thing goes through you would be competing agains Frontier AND Spirit pilots for PHX.

That’s some long odds there for someone already driving to work. Especially when the first year would entail a probable pay reduction compared to Skywest CA.
