Matt777 said:So when there are a bunch of furloughs like this do these furloughed pilots ever go apply at regionals or do they just find another career because flying at a regional is not an enjoyable experience compared to flying at a major?
I'm curious because I am just about to go off to an academy (ATP) and this thread has me wondering if furloughed pilots go for the positions at regionals that new guys in training (or flight instructing) thought might be available for them.
It seems odd that while many majors are going into bankruptcy and now furloughing pilots- that regionals are hiring like crazy.
When a major has financial troubles and has to park airplanes, furlough pilots and abondon markets do the regionals then just jump in and snap up those routes? Is that the explanantion for all the regional expansion?
Or are there simply more people flying then there were 5 years ago?
thanks for any insight!

That is the latest from ALPA.
