making a lateral move
I had a quick question to you all about making a lateral move in the industry. Right now, im flying for Comair and love it but I hate the commute to JFK and I dont want to sit reserve forever in CVG. I was thinking about making a switch to either Pinnacle or Mesaba just to be at home in Detroit. The only reason i would be changing would be for a better QOL. Is this move "frowned" upon in the industry? or would any future employers have a problem with leaving a company after a relatively short time? thanks for all the input

thanks for the input. this might be a stupid question, but during the interview, if your coming from another 121 carrier, do you normally still have to do the sim ride? Its been a while since ive been in a frasca so id have to brush up

hmmm call em up and try to talk them out of making you do the sim i guess?
