Would that be left seat or right because very junior in the left seat is self induced and a different animal all together.

You can say you're very junior, but the fact is, you're a 05 hire and senior to the UPS pilots that are posting.

Although it didn't start this way, I'm afraid thay my airline, World, would be on the list. It will be at least 5 years plus however long it takes to get a new contract, before we'll even get back to where we were pre bankruptcy.

I think you could add Centurian and Sky Lease to the list.

This.....

They have good equipment, good flying, great pay, good benefits, stable company.

Yeah there is some crummy management but that happens everywhere. I usually don't post much outside my comfort zone (121 supp) but it amazes me how many UPS and FedEx pilots get on APC and ***** and ***** and *****..... there are a ton of guys on furlough at other cargo companies that would gladly take your spot if you hate it so much.

Flame away if you want but lets keep it in perspective shall we?

You can also add Florida West to the medium list. Three 767-300s out of MIA flying for Lan Cargo mostly. Decent aircraft too.

NCR,

It's not that we're not thankful, i believe it's because a lot of us have been in the 121 Supp world and expected more once we got to UPS or FedEx. The bennies and pay are good, but I definitely had more fun and enjoyed working at previous jobs more. The crews and union are outstandin, its just a lot more adversarial than other jobs.

Ignorance huh..... forgive me for my ignorance when about 60% of my companies' pilots are on furlough. I would assume some of those furloughed are the Hamburger flippers, so yeah there is truth to that statement you just made.
