A brand new Chautauqua FO and you think you know everything? I got hired with what, maybe 1000 hours?
I've been reading your kool aid laced posts for a while now and have been silent. However your constant boasting about how your company is better than any other has finally gotten to me.
You are not the only pilot on this forum, and I would bet that most other pilots here have underwear with more hours than you have. So here is a little advise:
If you end up flying the COEX lines, be humble and respectful when interacting with Express Jet pilots. You really are NOT a credit to your company and its pilots with your egotistical attitude.
Even though you think you and your company are the best thing ever, ExpressJet is very good at what they do and their pilots are very professional.
Your company may have offered a cheaper product than ExpressJet (although this is debatable as the actual figures are all confidential and it is widely known that Kellner wanted to diversify his RJ
flying), but you do not offer a better product, as you stated in an earlier post. This is backed up by the fact that ExpressJet constantly ranks in the top 5 airlines, along with Southwest and JetBlue, in terms of fewest passenger complaints and also ranks among Forbes most respected airlines. So while I will agree you work for a good airline, I will not say you work for a better airline than ExpressJet.
The only reason you work for CHQ
is that they were stupid enough to hire you. If you had been hired by ExpressJet (something I am thankful for that you were not), you would be the first in line crying.
My suggestion is that you tone down your boasting of how great this deal and how your company is the best ever. Talk to your many coworkers who have been displaced by Mesa or come from Flyi, and see how they feel and then, when you are around ExpressJet pilots, show a little respect. If you don't, I certainly hope you are not a commuter as your name will rapidly appear on the ExpressJet pilot forum.
I have no problem with the CHQ
pilots who will be working along side ExpressJet, I only have problems with guys like you who think they know it all and act like asses.
See you on line and welcome to the Continental Family
