I can see how you might see my post as being "offended." To clarify, I saw troll behavior and I was pointing it out. Moving on.

Not trolling man. But going on the defensive detracts from actually discussing issues. When somebody asks what the benefits are to coming to AMF, the good and bad should be accurately described.

Ironic that you start that statement defensively. I'd like to get back on subject as well.

So what you are saying, if you don't want to do more than the minimum, you might as well go to the regionals

Well, I think it has been more than 2 years (probably more like 4 years ago) but I do know a gal who went straight from AMF to JetBlue. But I guess I am not young enough to only care about two year increments of things. Heck, is still drive an '03 car that I bought in '07.

Until very recently, you didn't stand a chance in Hades of getting on with Delta or FedEx without military time.

New "flow" program agreement with Frontier, with "a couple others in the works."

What are the chances a new guy (FO) could get based in SEA?

Except for our E120 FOs, the main purpose of our hiring of first officers is to get them to the point of moving to the left seat in one of our aircraft. So many of our FOs move around a good bit to get the hours as quick as possible.

As for E120 FOs, we have two E120 runs out of BFI, so there is turn over there. I don't know what the current status of hiring for those positions is.

The one thing everybody should give Ameriflight is that the company has endured. I'm class of 1988-89 and it's one of two companies still in business over my career.

Be careful about jumping ship to Omni. Management has threatened the pilot group that airplanes will be sold and furlough notices mailed if the pilots won't accept the forced proposal from them. The pilot group is going to vote NO on anything less than what is asked, so if you leave your flying gig now, you will be furloughed sooner then later. BE CAREFUL.

It's endoured on the backs of its employees. I will give AMF that.
