I hope things work out for the Frontier Pilots. You folks deserve better than to be relegated as "Regional Airline" pilots.

Good luck to you all!

We all love flying airplanes but man this business has some funky turns in the path that we would all like to avoid.

Republic has been a major

With all due respect sir, Republic has been classified as a "Major" airline for at least two years now under DOT specs....

Practically every regional is also classified as a "major" by those standards, (as they have been for years;) slowpoke.

Dude, I think "being relegated to life as "regional pilots" would be a far better fate than what Midwest pilots have had to endure under the reign of Republic.

Yeah, whatever. If a title is really that important to you....never mind the pay & QOL. :rolleyes:

BTW, that $1B revenue threshold hasn't been adjusted for inflation since before I was towing banners.

I'm afraid that what you actually meant was:
You (Frontier pilots) did not deserve to be kicked to the streets and replaced by low-paid Republic pilots.

Anyone who doesn't see Frontier as being screwed and Republic as riding the gravey train of shattered careers has their head up their, well, you know where...

Maybe a better offer will come along from a stronger company, that will give the average F9 Pilot a 40% raise, health benefits (with Dental), 401k matching, profit sharing, and stable employment.

NAH, forget it.

I think that is what they said to your RIDICULOUS offer. Well, at least they won't have to go to LBB......

I think you meant to say pretty soon they won't have anywhere to go, let alone LBB.

So, Republic won't fund them and make them stronger? I thought they have been profitable over the last few months? Don't tell me your SWA Ego has lead you to this conclusion? Wow, SWAPA is feeding you a lot of nonsense. Did they tell you Gary Kelly got his arse smacked by the Republic management? They must have forgotten that part....

General,

You may very well be correct but I'd like to revisit this post in one year.

Gary Kelly got exactly what he wanted.

If he wanted Frontier that bad he could have simply removed the prior SLI clause and upped the price a few bucks and he would have had F9 in a heartbeat.

He chose not to do either as he didn't want F9 on those terms.

He let F9 go, by default , to RAH.

There was no genius maneuvering or "arse handing" by RAH.

I fixed your quote with the items you "forgot."
