Default PSA or Republic (PHL Desired)

I keep hearing about junior manning and how the flow isn't worth much if you have a 4 yr degree and a good resume... Being a CFI working 6 to 7 days per week 14 plus hours a day (making **** poor money), I'm ready for a better QOL. What are your opinions on Republic vs PSA for a phl base? What about long term career outlook? Any insight would be much appreciated.. mid 30s with a mortgage if that changes anything strategy wise.. thanks in advance.

As of right now PHL is small and also fairly senior at PSA. That may not always be the case, but Iíve yet to hear of any plans for major growth there.

I am not sure what PHL is like for Republic, but itís a small base for us and senior at the Captain side. In regards to flow, a lot of folks who donít have the flow will always try to say. However, I think of the flow as a insurance card/sure thing to AA in my back pocket while trying to get hired on off the street to the Majors. Think of it as playing house money.

How likely is it to get PHL out of training as a new hire?

At present very likely. PHL for PSA has its downsides but if you live close theyíre all tolerable.

PHL just went to four new hires in the most recent bid.

Phl is really senior at PSA

Expect like 18 months on reserve at least with not the best reserve rules

Itís not so much really senior as it is small. And 18 months sitting reserve FROM YOUR HOUSE is a different thing

Yes, psa has short call reserve lines (about 90% of reserves) sit hot at the airport from time to time, maybe 20% of days

Yes we do have hot reserve. But if you live in base, itís no big deal.
