14. Regional Airlines


When you purchase a ticket for a big airliner, sometimes you can get a seat on a regional airline instead. The planes will have similar names to the flight that you’ve booked, like the one pictured above, but the pilots aren’t held to the same safety standards. In fact, the pilots don’t have to complete the same amount of training and flying hours and ones who fly with major airlines. You have a right to the flight you paid for, so next time make sure you’re paying attention.
