Default degree question

I have a 4 year bachelor of business administration degree and am working on my flight training where I have the opportunity to earn a bachelor of science in aeronautics while I complete my flight training.

I plan on going all the way with my flying; (CFI, CFII, MEI,...and beyond)
Will the regional airlines care that I have a BBA istead of a BS? I've heard that a Bacelor of Science is gettting important. Is this true? Anyone think the regionals will change their desired qualifications in this area in the future? Specifically Pinnacle.

I would love to hear from people at the regionals and what each company leans towards in this manner

any advice is appreciated

That doesn't really matter. Just as long as you have a degree. Get those ratings and your flight time ASAP. If it was me in your situation, I wouldn't worry about the second degree. Get your certificates and get flying!

That is coming with a kid with senioritis though...

The type of degree will not matter at a regional. A hard science/engineeering degree will help break you out of the herd for the majors, but what would be even better would be a masters. Do what it takes to get into a regional, then work on the masters while building time there.
