You're right, your butt does hurt from working at Pinnacle......PeanuckleCRJ said:Pinnacle used to do DTW-AUS daily as well as MSP-SAV on occassion... my butt still hurts.
I missed the Joke idea....Didn't mean to come across with fangs, claws blazing. It's always bugged me when guys say "ETOPS" and not know what they're talking about when it's really EOW. Just one of those things...pet peaves (sp) I guess. Kind of like checking in saying "...with you".Headfake,
Did you notice I said ETOPS for RJ's. Like baby ETOPS.
Don't get your panties in a wad.
If you came from ASA cut your old ASA brother some slack.
IT WAS A JOKE!
I know CRJ's don't have the true ETOPS.
I could be mistaken, but I believe the Eagle ATR flight from San Juan to Port-of-Spain, Trinidad is as long or longer. Straight line distance is about 633 miles, but we always followed the Antilles chain around so it's longer than that.Longest turboprop flight is ANC-DUT at 686 miles.
Friend of mine just did KROA to KLAS non stop for XJT Charter. 1684 NM 4:23 block. XJT also did LAX to ACA (Acapulco) when they were doing Delta stuff. 1432NM on the XR as well. This just proves the XR was the best 50 seater ever built. A 190 is not a RJ either. The DC-9 has a version which is smaller than the 190. So unless you consider the DC-9 an RJ, the 190 is out. Oh and it should not be at regional airlines or regional pay scales either, IMHO. I guess North America is the "region".
And yet, you took the time out of your obviously non-dorky day to compose a sarcastic response toward the dorks who think about stuff like this...Whats the dorkiest question ever asked on FI?
Too many dork pilots who sit around and think of stuff like this .... thats for sure.
yea.... thats right..And yet, you took the time out of your obviously non-dorky day to compose a sarcastic response toward the dorks who think about stuff like this...
Sure, as long as five year captians make $130/FO's make $75 and ten year is $140/$85.
Oh, you mean you weren't serious ??
