There is no doubt in my mind that NJA pilots give up more money just to keep no cost health care. You save 4-6k a year in healthcare costs but lose that and several thousand more by having the. Implant pay for it.

United family coverage contribution is like $690 a month out of your check, NJA pays that here.

Roughly $425 here at Brown for extremely high end coverage. Best Iíve ever had in 25 years of flying. I thought the medical at NJA was excellent as well.

Incorrect. I just asked my friend and he pays 390 for family. Stepping over airline salaries to pick up 4,680 a year. The logic just isnít there.

Free medical or not. There is NO way anyone can spreadsheet out compensation with NJA vs any major and see that objectively NJA would be ahead. Itís impossible. Most Majors in a 20 year career are up over 2M or more. Those are objective quantifiable numbers, no debate. Compensation defined as Salary, Bonus, Retirement contributions minus benefits.

If you like living in Morgantown WV and donít mind knowing you are leaving miney on the table. Then good for you. You have subjectively decided NJA is a better fit.

United has like 15 different medical plans. From 600 to 50 a month. Southwest offers a free plan. Delta has a ton of plans with costs from 50 a month to 400. Majors have better LOL and disability insurance than NJA offers.

So man up and call fatigued and take of your needs. If you're too afraid to use the tools you have, it's your own fault.

Just saying, if you live near a base I think a major is a good job, if you gotta commute to a crash pad it sucks! Commuting is the only part of working at a major I couldn't stand and my wife makes more than me so moving is not an option, plus my Country Club initiation is paid off, going to be good to finally be able to use it on my 7 days off.

TM was talking about how silly the meal deviation program is.

If you call in fatigued just to have time to use your meal deviation, youíll probably get fired.

Yea if you want 7 days off in a row consistently, youíll never get that at a major. Not considering reserve, even with a commute, youíll work around the same amount of days off than you would on the 7/7, and several days more than the CC76, and make more doing it. I totally get the added stress of commuting and all that but commuter clauses at all the airlines itís really not that big of a deal unless you gotta do a 2-3 leg because you live in nowheresville. To each their own, thatís for sure.

I live in a place where you show up at the gate and commute air's flight is suppose to be at 4PM and its delayed till 8 or 9 at Dulles. I drove the 120 miles for years but the I-95 traffic finally broke me, 5 hours to go 100 miles both ways was the end for me, loving the paid airline ticket to get to/from work, and sadly with three kids we could never non-rev except to Europe on Tuesday's! The Dummy ticket at NJA is a pretty nice benefit to get to my place in Key West during the winter!
