Dumb question

Do the majors require you to shave? I understand we don’t want huge beards or something like that. But after being in the military for almost 20 years be kinda nice to let it grow little.

thanks for answering my dumb question.

Kevin,

Most do. I fly for Hawaiian and we’re the only Major in the US that allows beards (JetBlue allows goatees). There are some Middle Eastern carriers that do as well but if you’re looking at any of the Big 3 you’ll have to settle for a moustache :slight_smile:

Thanks @Adam, I figured as much just figured i would ask the question. Looks like ill probably be shaving the rest of my life.

Perhaps ill see you around Honolulu one day. I work on Hickam and fly out of PHNL working on instrument right now.
