  1. I am sure that many people will apply. Some will apply for the travel perks; some because they hope to fly for SWA or another mainline someday. Some just need a job. But there will be enough that will meet the qualifications, will get hired and will pass through the training and probation to fill the spots. That don't make it right!!

    Keeping the spots filled may be another matter. For what a flight attendant is expected to do under certain conditions, they should be paid more than a clerk at a discount store. I believe that pilots at most regionals are underpaid as well.

    Didn't I see Colgan's name in the paper somewhere recently? It sounds familiar.

  2. I guess acc to FAA u are allowed to fly a max of 100 hrs per month... is it possible for a pilot to bid for overtime so as to fly near to the max allowed time per month, since most fly only 40-50 hrs per month in reality?
