No, I missed it. Past my bed-time. Thanks for the reminder, it was a well done report ( Miles O'Brien is great. )

It's a good report. The regional structure is the result of business pressures ( and evolutionary pressure, if you will ) that encouraged short cuts and lax standards. TANSTAAFL. I feel for the poor - literally - regional pilots, who are just trying to make a buck and build some time, but it's just not right. The system is taking advantage.
