    All six of us dinosours that populate the pipe will be gone by this time next year... Yay CPP. Somehow I don't think Southwest is accepting us with open arms anymore after seeing all the baby faces that run recruiting now. Looks like they now want baby face pilots like them... not that it is age discrimination or anything.

    Yeah right, just ask all those senior checkairmen who went to both carriers. After 6 apps with SWA, and a TBNT with Ual I’m thinking this baby face is good for a different career. (Age discrimination my ass)

    Military (Pilot) or Check Airman is the trump card for SW. War vet without a flight suit doesn’t seem to buy much here... no calls yet. Why drop the 1000 TPIC when there are so many like me out here that make the requirement. At least I didn’t lose my pants at the recruiting event.

    How are they still getting planes when supposedly they can’t staff what United is giving them?

    For each XR leaving we are pulling one LR out of Kingman. No loss.
