I looked for the best people and best qualified. It just happens to be a mix of black and white and 1 latino. I never looked at the skin color, I hired the inner-person and their experience.

Wild to see corporations not only admitting to race and gender discrimination in their hiring, but outright bragging about it.

Who cares? United can hire, train, and place in the cockpit whoever they like. Line-swine like us have no input on that decision. Relitigating the affirmative action chapter of the culture war here is an act of useless self-flagellation. The corporation​​​​​​ has obviously decided that this move and broadcasting itís implementation will be a positive business move. So be it. I just fly airplanes.

If management/ownership has decided that racism is a positive business move, would you still have the same position?

Also, if UAL had instead said that it wants half their pilots they hire to be white, would that be an issue?

Just some food for thought.

Why does UAL863 on 28 June 1998 come to mind?

When I look at the seniority tracker I will move up about 4,500 by this time in 2030. So we are only growing by 500 pilots from todayís numbers over the next decade? Thatís a problem.

That's just at the flight school. Article states a total target of 10K new hires by 2030.
