Default What airlines are non union?

Hello all! I'm planning to enter this industry in a couple years. I'm wondering what specific companies are not union airlines. I know FlexJet is one, but there must be others. Thanks for your help!

Well... For starters, FlexJet is not an “airline”. Flex is a Part 91K / 135 on-demand air carrier. Are you asking specifically about Part 121 scheduled, domestic airlines that are non-union?

You are not better off at the Non Union carriers , your retirement and pay are not protected without a contract , keep that in mind ........ Unions are a pain but they do have legal contract language , my airline has a Union and the pilot group is the ONLY work group that is Union

Wal-Mart is non-union...you could go there and then stay there. Workers in this industry have as much as they do only because they joined a union and have negotiated contracts. If you're thinking you're gonna come in with the anti-union mentality then as I said...try Wal-Mart. I'm sure you'll fit in perfectly there.

How do you know they're anti union?

Besides Skywest most of the non-union outfits are down in a little slice of heaven called 36th street in Miami. Wonderful place. Happy people.

Even jetBlue voted in ALPA a few years back.

There's a reason.

Ah, then I misspoke. I'm just looking for piloting jobs in general. Thanks for the clarification!
