If you have any other sources that define "Major" airline and include Frontier but exclude regional carriers and the like please share them now....



I obviously got further than you did...



Not a Legacy. Agreed.

If you want to call Frontier a "Major", then by your own argument(s) you have to call SkyWest a "Major" too. So by following your logic pathways, maybe FAPA should just throw in the towel, copy/paste the SkyWest Student Council's pilot "agreement" and close up shop immediately.

We can keep arguing about this and you can keep being angry about not being employed at a desireable airline to work, or we can unite and actually try to move forward and elevate everyone here.
Great post. Strange that no one else agreed.

How is this a great post?

He writes:

"...you can keep being angry about not being employed at a desirable airline..."

And then speaks about elevating everyone in the same sentence!

How do you elevate by insulting?

Coming on here with this: "you're not a Major airline" B.S. is meant to sting, and it's meant to be insulting. We all freaking know we're a ULCC! OK!? We all know we're not Delta!

It's like someone pointing out to you that you're not that pretty. No $#!T I look in the mirror every day, I think I know that!

The part about the DOT saying your a major being crap. Your company, and MY company have a LONG way to go before we can call ourselves majors in the sense that most of us think about majors. Legacy is a different term altogether and simply means "before deregulation". Like Alaska. Most people wouldn't put Alaska in the same category as DL, UAL or AA especially with their current contract. Yet they are a legacy.

Defending either of our companies before our management gives us the contracts we deserve is illogical.

We aren't competitive"majors" until then. I think that's what he meant, and I read into it.

We are the fat girls at the dance right now. Wishing it wasn't true doesn't change that, unless you consider Skywest a desirable major.

"Fine" your answer? Penalize your answer monetarily?

So, it's confirmed: only 6 people in class for May and no classes for the summer. BB feels F9 is over staffed.

No, but they did say that we aren't slowing down on deliveries. Something doesn't add up though as they were planning monthly classes of 25 to 30 and now 0 in the summer with no changes in deliveries?
