Actually, Frontier's requirements are quite reasonable for a national carrier, and are very much in line with the other airlines (JetBlue, AirTran, Southwest) that are currently hiring pilots. They also look quite similar to the Big Six's pre-9/11 requirements.
It's just too bad I don't have those numbers ... Frontier would probably be a pretty good company to work for!
I was told that maxed out Captains are making a bit more at F9 than at B6 as Jetblue is alot newer than our "different animal" here in DEN. From what I have seen the pilot group is very happy here too but don't count on getting hired on as an FO with the minimums. Try doubling the mins to be competitive from what I have seen.
Basically F9 and B6 are the same product but I feel like over time Frontier will be in it for the long haul due to slightly different operating philosophies.
