You do a good job illustrating what the trash talkers sound like on this board.

Insults (usually obviously bogus).
Spelling errors (soul not sole).
Idiocy (usually).

For folks looking to get to UPS / Fedex etc, a place like ATI or Omni or K4 is not a terrible step, especially if they are lucky and get an upgrade in a timely way. They get paid CA rates, build CA time, get type etc. Not everyone can go straight to UPS.

Pilots have different opinions, that doesn't make them management. ABX guys absolutely ripped the ATI guys for valuing home basing during last contract negotiations, but the ATI guys like home basing so kept it in. Or compare the number of legs and short turns a southwest pilot sometimes flies on the west coast - southwest has 9,000 pilots but might not be for everyone.

If you want to go to a plank union airline - check out ABX - they will and do throw crap / **** in their beds / **** on the customer / file harassment complaints / talk like management is the second coming of hitler.
If you work at ABX you know its true...if you don't then you have nothing to comment on. As far as our customers...our performance numbers speak for themselves...

You on the other hand feel qualified to comment on just about every topic about every airline.
Perhaps you work at ABX, Atlas, ATI, K4 and Omni ?

Speaking about commenting on every topic, you should give it a bit of a rest.
Is beginning to look as though “ get a life” was made just for you.

If I was a flight instructor with no 121 experience, nothing would stop me from accepting a job at ATI to bypass the regionals. 10 to 20% less in pay from Omni, K4, and others? Do you think a flight instructor gives a crap? Those others wouldn't hire him without much more experience, but certainly would after flying at ATI, if they ever wanted to leave.

I made one comment.

You, on the other hand, are on every thread, every day. And you never offer anything remotely interesting, let alone positive. Complains only. And then, you tell others they can’t comment.
That is typical

And allow me to make a second comment. Your comments are bitter, resentful and angry.
That is typical.

How bitter, angry and resentful was this?

Regionals with a flow through to a mainline pax carrier....stay away from ACMI. Cargo at Fedex or UPS when you have the qualifications is a whole different world than ACMI....you have a real future with unequaled benifits
pay and retirement.

You seem to have appointed yourself the comment police on an open discussion forum.
Maybe you are using this information on APC to make decisions on whether to by a new house or boat.....for me it's strictly entertainment. Lighten up Francis...

Exactly.

Flying regionals not a terrible choice - but at envoy FO's start at $38/hr! and *18 year* CA's are making $110! And QOL is blah. They have grievances in on flow rates too.

In 5 years at a place like ATI you should be expecting something like $200/hr.

Just click your heels together 3 times and the job is yours. You’ll be making the same wish that all the other ati pilots are making. The additional aircraft and Amazon flying belongs to ATSG and no one knows who will actually be flying these yet. Omni, ABX, or ati. The games are just beginning so I wouldn’t be putting any credibility into what some check airman said on some flight to someone. It’s all made up.
