I had him look at mine and he definitely had a more nuanced approach than the prep companies there doing the same. He said he used to be a Capt for Delta and United I think. Not sure about Delta but he and I were among the "570" that were hired by UAL in '85 to cross the picket line should (and did) the UAL pilots go on strike. No one cross and UAL eventually hired the 570 and I believe he was one of them. I went elsewhere, which in the long term was the correct decision for me. Don't get me wrong, Kit and his previous partner, Louis Smith, are the good guys that were at the fore front in helping all of us be better prepared for the airline hiring process. Louis Smith - Chairman and President of FAPA.aero | FAPA.aero | Meet the Team What Huggy described in so few words, is what so many of us went through: furloughs, pay cuts, reduced or no pension (no defined contribution plans back then), mergers and BK's. 2008 seems to have been the turning point for the airlines.
