No. It's not a case of yet another 50-seat CRJ trying to operate as an actual airline. After reading the article and searching Shenzhen Airlines, I found out that it is a budget carrier operating 737 and Airbuses.
Kunpeng airline crews were not with the actual airline. They were contract crews contracted for 2 years with the ability to be extended for a 3rd year. After that they had the option of going to Shenzen into the 737. Starting pay was 110,500.00 for the contract.
It wasn't a bad gig and sure made me think about it as I did do the first part of the interview and did the sim ride with them. I did pass and I just opted out of not going to the 2nd part of the interview. Hmm I suppose I did make the right choice there. woohoo.
I'll stay right here where I am at and be #812 out of 1700. Yep, I am ok with that.
