And yes, the 200k figure includes per diem and lots of extra work.

Last question for now, is the Las Vegas flying pretty junior or senior on the FO side?
Our junior CA’s make that to show up.... not including anything except base pay at min guarantee. The 3rd year CAs are $172k base min pay only. Add in per diem and how ever much OT you’d like, the guys I know are getting as much as they like lately.

Vegas is currently going very junior on FO side. A new hire can bid and hold it on the B767 currently. Their schedules are one leg and 2-3 nights in either Vegas or Honolulu, then repeat. Nice hotels and you keep the points in Vegas.

You’ll look back on these posts in a few years here and say, what was I thinking?.... yeah, it’s that good a job.... as others have already said.

Ok. Stay there. I know kalitta, omni and atlas keep cold calling you, but tell them that you had a better offer. Enjoy Allentown.

Why are you giving career advice on one forum, and asking for it on another? So now you’re an expert on southwest, acmi, regionals and swift. Thanks Turkey, we’re all counting on you.
