FurloughedAgain said:The RJs and ALPA have been the root CAUSE of SJS. It has grown due to unrealistic career expectations sold by flight schools and Kit Darby.
It is sustained by pilots who lack the patience to build experience before jumping into a high performance jet.
...but the destructive force of SJS stems from the regional-jet pilots who are willing to sacrafice their own futures, in order to acquire larger airplanes "today".
In essence, they would rather "PLAY" major airline pilot today -- then interview and BECOME a major airline pilot tomorrow.

A. $crew those guys! I need to get my 1000 pic turbine so I can go to SWA.
B. Man, that E190 is just as good as a 737! I can upgrade soon and be living the dream!
C. I am willing to give up some pay - after all, when I upgrade i'll make more money and it'll all even out in the end.
D. I sure dont want to do anything that weakens or violates the intent of another airline's collective bargaining agreement.

kngarthur said:Why do you people act like the "new CFI" destroyed the industry? The mainline guys destroyed it by taking concessions
FDJ2 said:Yeah we didn't want 32% of our pay, our pensions, work rules or the Delta pilot medical plan either. You nailed it ace.

kngarthur said:Oh you mean that the legacy carriers are slowly being replaced by the LLC's? While furloughed legacy pilots think they're "entitled" to a specific salary? I think you need to pull your head out of your ass, and go back to school and take a ECON 101 class. I know it would be the first real class you've ever taken.
BenderGonzales said:How dare we wish to sustain a livable salary and get in the way of your dreams of flying to far away, romantic destinations while wearing polyesther uniforms and attempting to bed down flight attendants.
