Skywest, Republic, Eagle etc; they are all majors.

My definition of a major is making $1 Billion a year operating revenues flying your own passengers. Ie. Not Uniteds (UEX) Deltas (DCI) AMericans (AE). DOT doesnt agree with me.

Republic is NOT a major by any stretch of the imagination. I don't give a **** what the DOT definition says. I agree that to meet the definition you should fly your own ticketed passengers and operate solely Boeing or Airbus products. Leave the Brazilian and Canadian **** boxes in the desert where they belong.

Republic is not a Major. They are a National.

Like the above poster said, they don't fly a single passenger who purchased a ticket to fly on 'Republic'.

Frontier not paying for a hotel (if true) is just amateur hour.

Anyone who applies for employment should understand why F9 is hiring. It is based on attrition only, there is no growth planned for the immediate future. We have a few pilots who are on VLOA through the end of this year and into early 2014. F9 is a good place to work but the total benefits package and QOL is no where near where it used to be. If you apply also understand there are tons of un-answered questions about the future, although the seperation from RAH is viewed a step in the right direction. Good Luck

I definably agree with the first part, but what about USAIR soon to be American with the 190s or us over here at JB with 190s. If some one else sells majority of your ticket you are a regional, you sell majority your own then you are at national/major. That is more of the traditional definition.

The EMB happens to be a fine bird and knows when it's in ice unlike the Airbus. Why do you constantly rag on RJ guys?

Which part? They don't pay for a hotel during training? Or you can't buy a ticket on DAL? (self-evident, lol).

Skybus was flying the Airbus. Were they a Major? 'Constantly rag?' Wth are you talking about?
