Silver, I got the idea from the MSP CA who went to EK and put a pic. That was all. Did a pic hurt so much? It was still simple enough. But some just need something - anything - to pounce.

And look, it's the same 4 pilots who respond in anger. What I said wasn't too much a stretch. Compass et al offer a quicker advancement and perhaps a better opportunity for the next step. No reason to be a used car dealer salesman here.
Could also say it's always the same guys that show extreme bias against Endeavor. Shy, Alaska etc.

I have concluded that no matter what Endeavor offers, even if they offer a true flow, fast upgrade, and $100,000 bonus. ShyGuy will always think there's other airlines, that's better and why no one should go to Evdeavor. Even though it's not the same company as when he left.

He reminds me of a a guy who dumps a girl years ago, but still drives by her house late at night stalking her, to see how's she doing and can't seem to let it go.

Now you are just putting words here. There is no straight flow, no fast upgrade, nor fleet growth, and not a 100k bonus. If it was those things, Endeavor would be the place to go. But as it stands it is not. The SSP worked for many but it also failed many which is why it is seen as hit or miss. You can't change no growth and more planes. The bonus is 20k which is a good sum, but it has to be balanced with the rest of the package. All I know is some legacy 9E 2007 guys are still FOs. That just doesn't bode well especially for newhires.

He tries to be tough hiding behind his screen name, but when I call him by his real name he gets all bent out of shape and gets his buddy the Moderator to contact me with an infraction message.

Just because he went to Virgin America he thinks he has the right to come on here and bash all of our career choices.

Isn't that right Dancer? You still hang out by the elevator down to the DTW crew room in your spiffy Banana Republic uniform hoping that people you know will notice you and actually want to talk to you?

Get a life dude, you are the epitome of internet troll.
Hahahhahahhaahah. Thanks bones. Needed that.

Who are you to determined if Endeavor is a place to go to or not. Just because someone choose Endeavor doesn't mean they are making a bad choice. We all chose an airline for reasons that works best for us. The place to go (in your definition) is not the same as someone else. If I lived in NY why would I go to Compass and commute to LAX for the quick upgrade so I can sit reserve? Seems to me Endeavor would be my choice.

Cause everyone feels the need to decide for everyone else, because they know your situation better than you do lol. I went to a place that everyone hates, but works best for me. Yes I even had a class date at 9E and turned it down.....boy did I get a ration of **** for it lol.

The 2007 guys are going to upgrade this vacancy and next. 2008 guys are very close. The movement is here.

You are right but it is a pilots market now in the regionals. You can go anywhere and Endeavor can't be the only place with a NYC base. In that case Commutair would be an option. But you are correct in the end it's always the individuals choice and preferences. Some places are obviously better to go to than others. I would caution though anyone wanting NYC as a base for a DCI regional. History shows Delta killed Freedom and Comair out of NYC. Just because this base exists now doesn't mean it will tomorrow. But to each his own I suppose.

That's great news and about time. Hopefully gets even better for legacy 9E guys when those ridiculous fences come down.
