Bedford is the same way. He is the anti-christ for pilots dressed in sheeps clothing. All the pilots at RP warned you guys and the Midwest guys about Bedford spitting out his putrid lies. You guys thought he was the savior of your airline. Im sorry for what he did to F9. Frontier was a great company back in the day and I only wish the best for everyone there. But take heed of this warning. Franke is not going to save the airline if he can just take all the assests and ship them off to all the other airlines that Indigo has all over the world.

This is of course my opinion and I hope im wrong.
Ok, Ill say it again. I dont work for Frontier. But if I were at a Regional and/or wanted to be rewarded for a nice calculated risk, I would definitely be honored to work for Frontier.

Franke and Bedford are evil, sphincter, bastards that get rich from exploiting their employees. I agree with you. But as history has shown, if you have a strong pilot group that is willing to strike for what they believe they are worth, then maybe, we could have a good airline to work for. I believe the Spirit pilot group did that and achieved a nice contract.

One Caveat. I worry about Franke exploiting the Frontier Pilots. In the past, from what I have been told, the Frontier Pilots are very quick to give concessions. This history is well known to Franke and the rest of the industry and anyone with business knowledge can and will forecast that Franke will ask for concessions.

Good Luck,

TEN

I think Franke is going to set you guys up to compete with Spirit.

This application process for Frontier is a mess. RAH seems to be intercepting, and bungling things in their own special way.

So I've noticed a bit of a difference in the automated reply email after you apply. Many of you have stated that it said thank you for your interest in the FF01012- Pilot position with Republic Airways.

Mine said:
8/10/2013


Dear xxxx,

Thank you for your interest in the FFO1012 - Frontier Airlines Pilot position. Your application has been received. We will review your application and contact you if we believe your background, experience and skills are a good match for this position.

Sincerely,

Republic Airways Holdings
Recruitment Department

Any idea as to why there might be difference? I wasn't able to apply when the window was open, but a friend sent me the link to the online app and it worked, and this was the reply. Also, I emailed my resume in as well to [email protected]. No TBNT email yet, fingers crossed!

Maybe they corrected the emails between the first to go out and the last?

Then what's your secret to get attention at a Legacy? I've been banging on the door with no response. Easier said than done...
