He meant 14 hours of waiting at the fbo/flying and then 10 hours rest not as in days on/off.

Airline flying isn't for everyone, just like flight instructing or 135 night freight isn't... I know someone there who *loves* it and has 0 interest in going elsewhere.
More money at 121? Of course. $ isn't everything; take what you earn and live within your means.

I'm neutral but optimistic. Time will tell how they want it to play out. XO is retaining control and leadership and the XO name.

Hopefully we get some cash infusion to make things better.

does the acquisition mean the potential for some overseas trips or wii XO remain primarily domestic?
