The race to the bottom continues at full speed!
Mickey Mouse operations like Go-Jets are the cancer of this industry, and it is speading fast.
How? All regionals are contract lift with no scope protection. Every gain in a contract is a step closer to being replaced by the next cheaper guy. It's a continuous revolving door that you guys can't seem to see. I feel for you but you all are just another cog in the cost wheel. Until all jet flying is done under mainline scope this "continual race to the bottom" (which is hilarious by the way since all regionals are already there) will continue forever.

Not a big fan of Go Jets but it really blows me away that Skywest wasn't able to buy this flying out from under the other pilot groups.

Anger over GoJets is really directed at the wrong group. It isn't the GoJet pilots who are responsible for this. It is ALPA and greedy management. But ALPA is a big player that deserves the blame for a lot of this. Hulas Koolaid-nas and his management cronies did try to see if ALPA could come up with something agreeable for the bigger RJs. ALPA, overconfident and flexing their muslces, tried to play a game of hardball and it failed. It also bit them in the a$$. GoJets is actually a by-product of an ALPA failure. And, in one of life's little ironies, became the same place that ALPA sanctioned to send its furloughed pilots from United.
ALPA can be blamed for a lot of things...but the creation of Go-Jet ain't one of them.

Your right...It is APA's fault that GoJet was formed....

Gojet will need to hire 120 pilots very quickly for this new flying. I hope they struggle to find them

Maybe they'll offer jobs to ASA pilots like they did last time we had guys on the street. SH can set that up...

A junior ASA FO may want to strongly consider jumping over there, or to Compass. Both will have the majority of regional growth. ASA upgrade time could hit 10 yrs.

Go to GoJets where they will have the utmost respect of their peers. Good Luck trying to Jumpseat!

Then again ASA has a future so dark you need night vision goggles!

ASA furloughees who went there are probably captains by now.

They probably couldn't give less of a dump what their "peers" think of them when they have their 1000PIC and we're on our 8th year sitting in the right seat doing 4 days over the weekend for min guarantee.

Hey, they might be 767 FOs by the end of next year, but at least we'll have our "dignity"...

Nobody cares that much anymore

That's just it. The only way it's going to make a difference to them is if the next tier airlines don't hire them because of the situation.

Well that's just the thing. The majors don't care about our petty regional pilot squabbles. A 63 year old hiring manager isn't going to look at a resume and say "oh this guy went to GoJet, what a d*ck".

You have a lot to learn. I now work with pilots from all walks of life. ASA,Skywest,TSA,Pinnacle,Colgan,Mesa,US Air,Mesaba,Horizon,ATA,Aloha,Indy,Midwest,UAL furloughs among others. They, couldn't care less where I came from. Yes, I was at that horrible place (GoJet). I got my 1,000 PIC & MOVED ON to a much better place. But, hey keep up the whining, complaining and your own little jumpseat war. Let us know how that works out for you mmmmmk. For the record, G7 was a horrible place. It was no different than Trans States as far as managment, maintenance, schedules etc. I do not regret going to G7, getting my time and moving on. Good luck. With your attitude you're going to need it.
