Itís ďsomething I should really think about, because itís better than anything I could hope for at my current jobĒ. I honestly have no clue if he was just ****ing with me to get a rise outta me or if he was dead serious. Iím pretty good at tuning out all the vacuous ****heads I encounter every day, but we were both deadheading on the same flight and jockeying for position in the boarding area.🙄🙄
Recemmond that he and his colleagues take a pay cut and bring the regional pilots to parity. Thatíll shut his pie hole.

His argument was that I should be happy to accept a huge pay cut to keep my current job in exchange for a small chance to be a permanent rj pilot on his list or a permanent NB FO. Of course a mainline FO position is better than an RJ CA position, but what happens to the schmucks that donít get selected? Finish off the career at an even lousier pay scale than already exists?

I agree with your opinion and would be upset too.

On the other hand I just canít go along with being a republic lifer in the current hiring boom. Unless you are over 60 and just putting in the time there isnít a reason to stay.

Best of luck to you regardless.

How about the San Antonio city council from banning Chik-Fil-A from the airport.

The airport is a 7 day a week operation, chick fil a is not. That space should be used for a restaurant that will provide services 7 days a week.

That’s a silly statement. They are not paying rent for 6 days out of the weeek. Meanwhile the city will lose close to 2 mil on generated taxes.

It’s pure political. SAT is on a fast track to be next sfo, city is ran by extreme progressives.

It has nothing to do with that. SAT said their reason was because chikfila doesn't bend the knee.

It's not a silly statement. I know the rent is the same, but they dont fill the need of a 7 day operation. I realize its probably has nothing to do with that and it's a political decision.

It is political and it sucks for the employees/passengers because they offer a great product with reasonable prices. Lots of airports have chick fil a, and on sundays there are plenty of alternates.
