But that is not always possible as many of the more sought after jobs are in airlines with seniority.

Seniority is massively to blame for this industry's woes. It thwarts job mobility and so traps those in seniority based airlines and stops movement of experienced (Captains) pilots into seniority based airlines allowing the likes of FR to take advantage.

Yet the unions still push seniority as all pilots have is industrial might and so protects the unions' membership levels.
