So 11 months ago, domino said he was in the bottom 20% on the ERJ.
Today he says he’s a ground instructor.

That’s a pretty short list.
Unless domino is full of crap, which is approximately a 95% chance.
I think the #WhoIsDomino mystery is coming to a close….

From the UAL press release:

"Today, for example, about one-third of our domestic departures are in single-class, 50-seat jets; we're going to lower that to 10% or less over the next three years, "Andrew Nocella, chief commercial officer, said.

If you actually worked at SkyWest you'd know pretty well that they actually like to hire super junior FOs for FTD and Ground Instructing positions.

Thats a feature, not a problem. Scope won't be relaxed.

Probably one of those 1501 hour wonder boys doing a stint as a ground instructor, which as we all know requires a pulse and little else. Also, it's going to be incredibly easy to cross reference the ground instructor list with domino's supposed date of hire.

Domino, take it from me: if you're actually employed at OO, do yourself a favor and get off this forum, pronto. It takes just one phone call from SGU to the company running this site to find out your identity. Ask me how I know.
