Sky King is a supplemental 121 carrier with some older 737's and at least one 767. They are hiring F/o's. Anyone know about the quality of life issues: pay, benefits, schedules and such?
From what I've heard from their crewmembers, you'll be lucky to paid on time, everytime. Isn't SkyKing under bankruptcy protection?
Yes, but so were Delta, United, Continental, etc etc etc.

Any answers to the original question would be appreciated.
Yes, but operating and I think doing a better job of things lately. Trying to get 767 back, as always in aviation believe it when it's leaking oil on your ramp. Bankruptcy is true however I think they will eventually exit. Two major business units are doing well, with occasional ad hoc work. For me, the schedule is really good so I have had excellent QOL for the three short months I've been on line. It is not Cathay Pacific, but it's clearly better than unemployment.
