Look at your name!
Hey look - I wasted 15 years of my life pursuing the "airline pilot dream."
It wasn't what I thought. I got furloughed and I am now on "the bottom" again. Many people told me "run your own business, then you are the boss." Looking back, they were and still are 100% correct.
Doug, on the national seniority issue, yes I would like to see it for bidding and displacement, yeah you would be out of your job right now but you are in fact junior (nationally) to those who are on the street currently. It would suck to be young and junior but that of course that changes with time. On the other hand, once you got some national seniority you could actually have some security. You wouldn't have to worry about your airline going bust for example.
I don't know why I'm talking about it, of course it would never happen.
