no problem - with that kind of drive you should be in a DAL 777 capt in no time. In fact I don't know why the General isn't knocking on your dorm room door as I write this.

Hi guys! I'm graduating from Embry-Riddle next semester and I was wondering how long the upgrade is at Delta right now. I want to work for ASA so that I can build up my multi and jet time and also fly under the Delta logo to give myself a better shot of getting hired in a year or two at mainline Delta. Here's my question: If I get hired at a Delta connection carrier soon, will I get the same senority number as if I were hired at mainline Delta right off the bat? Also, will I be able to upgrade quicker at Delta after I get 1000 pic in the RJ because I already have really good "jet captain" experience. Thanks for the input guys! Can't wait to see yall out on the line!

If you want to get hired at Delta, the last thing you want to do is work for a Delta regional...

I was looking at upgrading in about 7 years at NWA. Then age 65 happened so I was looking at upgrading in 12 years. Then Delta happened with their fair SLI (sarcasm) so I am looking at upgrading in about 15 years. I get a three dollar an hour raise to make up for it though so all is good (more sarcasm). I am still working though for now (not sarcasm). Let's hope it stays that way.

Hi!

If someone really wants to be hired now and upgrade to big jet captain soon, I would recommend Emirates, Etihad and flydubai.

nothing like being age 55-59 years old and on reserve in crash pad in JFK on crap aircraft, but you are Captain.

On crap aircraft? Which airline are you talking about. You may want to save the criticism for your own airline in ATL.

Bye Bye--General Lee

yes general- if you take the first upgrade at delta- you'll be on the md- which amounts to.... a decent paycheck and not much else. Good thing type of a/c is about 16th on my list of priorities.

Same with me obviously. I am holding out for 738 line holder in the left seat. That's great. But Scarlet needs to remember that his own airline treats him and others like krap, and he should probably worry about his own situation first.

True enough.

On the flipside- STOP GIVING FLYING AWAY TO THESE OPERATIONS WHEN YOU KNOW THEY'LL NEVER HAVE THE LEVERAGE TO ADEQUATELY IMPROVE THEIR SITUATION!

for all the talk- i don't know if i'll ever forgive delta pilots for outsourcing 76 seat jets after everything we've gone through... at least they're joining with the other can't-learn-a-lesson airline- NWA/Compass.

Screw the next generation, right General?- you got yours...
