Why not beat up on SWA, JETblue, and Airtran. They seem to be the ones that fly heavy iron for substandard pay and benefits.
Looks like someone didn't like what I originally said.
Anywho, how can SWA offer 299 walk up fares ? How can Delta compete with that. You don't think the substandard pay has SOMETHING to do with it.
My problem is the regional pilots are be blamed for everything thats wrong with the industry. You want me to quit ? There are 1000's that are willing to take my place. You want me to let mainline guys fly beside me making 5x the money? No thanks.
Delta pilots could fly for free and not cut costs low enough to compete on the same level.
Umm...in their contracts?
