I’d have to disagree. Flying a regional jet is no easier (actually, probably more difficult) than flying an A320. There is just as much risk involved, it doesn’t matter if there are 76 or 150 people in the back. Many regional pilots are great professional aviators.

Now if you want to talk about difference in pay and job stability that is a different story.

That’s not the point. The point is the regionals are for most people the step before the “forever job”.

Just like HS is the step to get into college. And your record and grades and where you went to school and your interview might get you into Yale or might get you into the local CC and everywhere in between.

A safety school is a college you apply to being unsure you can get into a top school (major)...

It wasn’t my analogy....

I think it was a poor analogy. It basically downplayed regionals as “high school” when in reality it is a profession with high responsibility.

And some people take high school very seriously too...

But the safety school part is apt.

I think you are confused about what a safety school is.

Everyone gets into a regional (like high school). Not everyone gets into college. And even fewer get into a top tier college. So people who apply to Harvard typically have a backup or safety school. In this case, for someone wanting to go to Delta, having JetBlue as a “safety school” backup is a lot better than to hang out at the local high school hoping to convince Harvard to admit you year after year when you could go to state school and apply for a transfer into Harvard, or just take your state school degree and be happy with it. A state school diploma still beats a high school diploma.

That’s the analogy. Has nothing to do with responsibility or difficulty, it has everything to do with career management and expectations, hence why you are leaving (trying to leave?) a regional.

Ahh ok that makes sense now. Thanks for the explanation.

It was my analogy and its accurate. B6 is a 2nd tier airline.
Anyone with aspirations of being treated like a pilot, should seek life at a true major or legacy.
The CBA is an improvement only. Im glad to have it, but we'll always be behind and this management hates us.
Most guys here are hoping to be purchased simply to dump this management. ymmv and again, good luck.
Btw, the regionals are highschool. Get over it.

That's a fair analogy, and I guess there's a pattern in my life. I went to a state school, and was very happy there. I didn't compare myself to Harvard people, and I don't really compare myself to Delta people now.

Happiness comes from within.
