Would anyone care to elaborate on the training program for Frontier? Specifically how tough it would be for an Army King Air pilot with no jet time and no 121 experience.

Thanks!

You would be just fine. It's easy stuff.

The caps got my attention. Is Frontier indeed more profitable then United? I couldn't find any 2016 financial earnings for Frontier. I'd be curious to see the numbers used that prove your statement to be true.

Profit MARGIN, probably yes.

Profit in DOLLARS, probably not.

Link to SJU flying.

Frontier launches nonstop flights from PHL to San Juan, with $59 fares
Writing is becoming legiable on the wall for Vegas, and Philly bases in the not so distant furture.

You will do great. I flew army king airs and no issues. The biggest problem for the mil guys in general is learning the FARs. Come witch a good attitude and you will be fine.

Basic financials are available through the Bureau of Transportation Statistics.

In 2016:

United produced a Net Income of 2,691 million on 36,540 million of Operating Revenue. As a percentage, 7.3%.

Frontier produced a Net Income of 189 million on 1,683 million of Operating Revenue. As a percentage, 11.2%.

Gotcha! I figured that's the comparison you were speaking of. Thanks!

And it certainly isn't anyone's business if I wear a lanyard or not. Also, it's no ones business if I start the APU or single engine taxi, that's my decision. However, I do support our efforts and hope that we do secure a great contract. Although, I don't think we will get a contract that is terrifically better than our peers, I think it will be along the lines of what our peers have now. If I'm wrong, then that's great, I'd love to be pleasantly surprised by the outcome of these negotiations. No, I won't be picketing on the 19th, because, just as with the lanyard, I don't think it is really going to help the situation.
Cherist man, I remember reading about the jetBlü guys in the 2000's justifying their lo pay with quik upgrades. Also they used to hire anti union types which kept them outta da monee for years. Hope this isn't the way it is there. I have been tryin to get on at F9 for a little while. Definitely dont need the drag on the industry types. It sounds like this is not the prevalent attitude here tho.
