i would say none of these people will have regrets. remember almost every regional slashed their TT requirements because nobody was coming for the lousy pay. And for the most part that strategy has been hugely successful, because they can keep labor costs low (sunk training costs are a different story but thats less tangible). The people who were well qualified chose other routes like corporate flying, and all these people who are looking for a quick way in are enjoying this newfound ability to get hired. so will they be happy to pay back 25 G's to be an RJ FO? You bet your sweet a$$ they will

No doubt. When I got hired at Pinnacle back in 2004 I made $18,600 yr 1 ($20.73/Hr), did NOT get paid at all until the completion of your checkride (start of IOE) which was considered our date of Hire and had to provide your own lodging during training.

Default AE Hiring 400TT/85ME/$20,000 get a job!!!!

A 2007 thread? Well, as long as we're talking about yesteryear; my first airline gig was $12 and change/hr. I think perdiem was nonexistent. And that was getting hired with around 2,000 hours. No pay until checkride, but at least they paid for the double-occupancy hotel during training. My current airline I almost had 3,000 when hired, and it felt like rags to riches when my pay went to $19/hr plus perdiem and fully paid during training in my own hotel room.

Then they hired people with just over 500 hours.

Now they're throwing money, benefits and travel privileges at them.

Took almost 20 years, but what a difference.

Truly food stamp territory back in the day. Not anymore.

Yeah and I'm one of them, that doesn't mean that a family of 4 generating 50k a year doesn't qualify for stamps.

Dunno. I made it on $40 thousand for a decade and didn't need food stamps. Of course, I didn't have a new car, a Bose headset, iPad/phone, designer much anything, didn't blow $ on expensive bar tabs, brought my own crew cooler... Just depends on what one expects as a lifestyle. All that and I still pass traveled to Europe at least a half-dozen times for some great vacations.

No food stamps, but there were months it would've taken a load off to have them.

wow thats alot of multi time
Is that the same as 1250TT?

So, $20,000/850 = $23.52 Something tells me that you're not buying the multi time from these guys

38 hours in Sims plus that invaluable AA interview prep course, that sounds like a deal for 20 large!
