Wow. Those rates are really bad for the E-jets.
Did somebody tell you to say that or did you think it up yourself ?

While on subject

I'm glad there is a post about this airline because I have a few questions for those of you who work there. I'm currently with one Regional Airline and I've always been against the idea of "Regional Hopping" but I'm considering it now.
How's the Quality of life there?? Are they hiring FO's for the Embraer 170's only??
How does Upgrade look in the near future?? Last but not least by any means at all, how is Management and Quality of life at this Airline?? I am for sure going to submit my stuff to them and do the process of interviewing. I'm also tired of commuting and would like to be based at DCA. What's the chances of getting awarded that? How about ORD?? These are probabally questions that come up here alot but I'm not diggin through old history's to find old posts. Thanx

No floating days off, no junior manning, pref bid...it's not bad. We may not be the best paid, but our days off are our days off.

16 days off with 83 hours credit for only the second month I've been online. Not bad I'd say. QOL seems to be pretty good.

Another thread where CHQ pilots get to spout off the highlights of their contract and how many days off they get......Yea!!!

on the flip side....some of you guys that run around here saying CHQ sucks need to to shut your f*ckin mouth. It's old. Do you work there no. So why do you care....if you hate the company so much, go to bed and be thankful you're not there.

Am I a fan of alot of the CHQ pilots.......no. I think alot of their attitudes stink......but the fact that they are constantly trying to talk about how many airplanes they are getting, or how many days off they have, when they think they are going to upgrade...etc, etc, everytime they show up on this board, a crewroom, or even while asking for the jumpseat (my personal fav) probably has to do with the fact that they are constantly being tagged as just the same as mesa.

For being the "Most Ripped On Airline" of the moment I can sure name alot more sh*ttier places out there.

I'm trying so hard to give a rat's ass what you think of our pilots...but it's just not working.

I had a CMR FO on my flight yesterday and he said the exact opposite of you. He had nothing but positive experiences from every CHQ guy he's encountered....so eat it.

Your breaking my heart Star Checker.

There are knobs at every airline.......the only reason yours stand out is because your taking delivery of airplanes and signing up new code shares left and right.
I didn't say you all s*ck.........have a prozac.

Yeah because of all the regionals out there we've heard ComAir pilots always talk the least sh*t about about CHQ pilots. Funny how much you care about what someone else thinks of your pilots when their strokin your c*ck.

Been at CHQ since april. I was on reserve for 3 weeks. Got called twice. I had 15 days off this month, and I only spent 3 days away from home. We have lots of bases, and lots of different kinds of trips depending on the base. My life is great for the time being. Others don't have it as well, but its all what you make of it

Right now DCA is not a base, but it is expected to open when Republic starts flying the newly-aquired MidAtlantic aircraft, which will start shortly. ORD is currently a large base, and it is very likely to get awarded it if you fly for the Shuttle America subsidiary.

CHQ is no different than any other of the so-called regional airlines. Some things are better, some worse. If you bundled everything up and put it on a scale with XYZ Airlines (pick one) on the other side, it would fairly balance regardless of your pick.


A fair amount of punks waiting to have the 1.5 year upgrade, to which they consider themselves entitled, presented to them in a lavish ceremony. That kind of ticks me off; not the quick upgrade, but the assumption of entitlement and the punk attitude. (i.e. screaming "STAPLE 'EM!!!!!") It is beginning to alienate folks better left unalienated. This is a vocal minority, to be sure, but it is tainting the rest of the group.

Pay no attention to the "bottom feeder", etc, comments you see here. It is all the same people saying all the same things all the time. All the regionals share this distinction to some degree. How much of a degree depends upon to whom you are speaking and that exalted status is also bundled into the bag on the scale and fairly balances with the rest of it.
