Are their certain regional airlines to avoid getting hired by if you want to get to a major?

Do some airlines prevent you from getting to say united delta or American? Like go jet gets you to spirit etc

James,

Years ago there were some Regionals that were considered “lower tier” or “scab” airlines but that was then. There’s been a lot of consolidation and the relationships have solidified, better equipment etc. I know Chris believes jet time is more valuable then turbo-prop but I haven’t seen any priority given myself. In short get hired flying what and where you want and you’ll be fine.

So you could conceivably get to united from mesa or go jet or psa?

Yes and many have.

Thanks as always Adam
