It was just announced that Skywest's Soft Landings Program has been approved allowing pilots to receive longevity credit for previous experience with other 121 carriers. Up to 10 years can be "transferred". Will not count for towards your bidding seniority or jump seat seniority but does count for 401k, profit sharing, and user/vacation pay. So, if I understand this correctly, a new hire with 10 years at any other 121 carrier could be hired at SkyWest today, upgrade in 10 months, and be making 10 CA pay in his/her first year?! Anyone know the facts on this?
