Are you serious? Upgrades are taking that long? Historically, what has been the average upgrade time at Comair?

Not to be rude man, but with 526 posts on this board.. where have you been? It's been 4-5 years or longer since right after the strike when Comair's growth slowed, then stopped.

I have my 5th anniversary next month at CMR and it'll probably be at least 6 more months before i even start training.

The upgrades went down to 4.5 years until they decided to cancel the bid on our last day of ground school.

in the airline business seniority is everything... don't listen to guys who tell you to wait. Get on with an airline as soon as you can. you can always get finish your degree online (i did). I know guys who got on here (at xjet) at 20. they have 5 years on me. On the back end of a career that could translate up to a million dollars... hm.. seems like a no brainer to me.

Get in and get that seniority number. But make SURE you get that degree (online!)...it takes discipline - but it gets you the best of both worlds.

I gotta tell you that I just smiled when I read your comment .

Having a background in airport management, replying to threads and topics where I'm able to contribute comments with substance....that's where I've been. Started looking into flight training seriously when I joined APC back in 12/05. Remember...."the road to success is always under construction."

Comair's always been cheap when it comes to giving out upgrades..that'll change soon enough. Upgrade times will go no where but down.

I'm surprised no one mentioned the fact that it's the legal drinking age???
That might play a role in the hiring process...

Well I'm glad you smiled. We should all smile more often...
