Thank you. It's not a problem. I've just started mentioning that more lately to be clear.My apologies. Didn’t want to assume or assign.
If I do, it's not something I do intentionally.Don’t build a grudge.
I've been flying for most of my life... more than twenty one years. I've watched the cycles from the sidelines for years before I decided to come to the airlines. I remember twenty years ago. Things are better now than then, but they're also much different now than then.I flew for a regional for almost six years. Its hard, but believe me, regional guys have it so much better than 20 years ago.
Take this for what it's worth from some guy on the Internet, but it's all just a game. You learn the rules and play as you see fit. We all know we fly the same customers on jets painted in the same scheme to largely the same places. One of my favorite movie quotes of all time is from Platoon when SSG Barnes says, "there's the way it outta be, and there's the way it is." We've all seen d-bag mainline pilots and d-bag RJ pilots. If there's a difference overall, it's really hard to see. Sister, I try to not worry about the airline game and am just concentrating on winning it. I know you don't want to play the college degree game and to me, that's a shame. From the book you wrote that I greatly enjoyed to the things I've seen you post here, I wish you would play the game and I'd love to end up on the same legacy property as you some day.If I have a chip on my shoulder it's about the concept that mainline pilots are qualitatively different from regional pilots.
I know they still operate a few of the Lear 35's hauling people around. Not sure how many they still use now. One of the co-owners nephew flew with me a few times when I was at PSA. Knew a lot of guys from there and Airnet when I worked at the FBO in CLT.I haven’t thought of bankair in years. I wonder what’s become of the grizzled old freight hounds that used to fly for them?
