In changing their hiring mins to require time in a/c over 55 tonnes? This would exclude all RJs but would ensure that newhires have experience in big jets.


"All FO's must now have jet experience on a multi-engine Jet with a MTOW of over 55 Tonne. Based on this new minimum criteria we will not be considering further candidates with experience on smaller aircraft types. This also means we will no longer be considering those candidates already in our hold pool who fall short of the new minimum experience criteria."
 
useless thread/get a life!

How are you gonna get the experience without meeting the mins?

Regional pilots fly more approaches/day than their mainline counterparts. Long-haul means longer sectors, less approaches etc.

Beating a dead horse.

Go get a job flying a big jet over the weight requirement. Then you would be qualified.

Yes, but they must make an exception for minority candidates otherwise it will unfairly discriminate.
 
In this environment they can do that, in a few years it will be back to anyone with the mins.
