Ride The Lightning I like the name bro. Sounds like an old school Metallica fan to me.

Well, make sure you compare apples to apples.


There is no reimbursement for a hotel, but you draw regular first year FO pay during training (70 hour min). I don't know about every other airline, but I know JB pays $2500/ month (last year's rate anyway) and Pinnacle doesn't pay anything during training.

But we don't get the free laptop.;)

To be fair, AirTran does pay for a hotel in training. What they do not pay for is a hotel while you are in your base, which is Atlanta for all pilots. If you do any training in a city other than ATL you will have hotel provided. As long as we only have one base they can get away with this.

where
Pinnacle pays 21 per hr and pays hotel. 24$ second year.

AirTran pays 42.50 per hr. no hotel. 56$ second year.

I'll pay for my hotel for 4 weeks for that difference

At SWA we have the no hotel for Dal Based pilots also during trainning, but for initial hires, all hotels are paid for, plus you get paid for 1st year pay.

When I was hired at AirTran, my class trained in Miami. We were provided a rental car, a townhouse, per diem, and a paid travel day each way between events (if you went over your guarantee, which we did).

When training is in ATL, however, you provide your own accommodations. Not a biggy in the scheme of things.

a few
When I was in training back in the spring I paid $300 for two months in a crashpad that was only 5 min. from the training center. Hotels are nice to have but it's really not worth that much of a fuss. We don't provide it, big deal. The cockpit in the 717 makes up for it. P.S. I still haven't gotten around to changing the name.
