Hey guys,
So I’ve been looking through the profiles for the regional airlines and just wanted to know if anyone had any insight on the flow through programs like the one offered by envoy to American. Any possible advantages or disadvantages that you have experienced or could see potentially?

Lorri,

It seems that the American subsidiaries (Envoy, Piedmont, PSA) are the best flow through programs out there. Basically, they are one stop straight to American with a guaranteed path. That being said, I would not place too much emphasis on the flow throughs as everything is subject to change and you might decide that you want to work for a different airline anyways.
