Is there any hint of truth that budget airlines hire new pilots that don't have the obvious flight time experience but meet the minimum threshold, compared to let's say premium airlines who have pilots with more flight time experience?

Pilots at major airlines are lacking training as well. And new pilots earn peanuts and have poor work life balance (see colgan air Buffalo crash investigation aftermath). I would think a low cost airline is not going to be any better.

Low budget airlines have been a thing in Europe since the early 90's. If the probability of a crash was significantly higher in these airplanes vs. "the regular airlines" I think people would have caught on by now.

The post you replied to was a response to someone insinuating that these low budget airlines are death traps. Looking at your response it looked like you were hinting that these airlines (which i assume is the low budget airlines since that's what LynxAir is) hire inexperienced pilots.

Confusion aside, my responese is to anyone who thinks low budget airlines are unsafe.

Regional airline pilots in the US don't make a lot of money. It is a tough life for them.
Flair pays their pilots very well. There's no more risk of a Flair airline crashing than an Air Canada/WestJet one
I haven't looked at Swoop or Lynx pay rates, but it's probably similar

I'm checking YYC-YVR turns and even 'full price' on weekends in $5 base fare. So an extra $10 more if you want to do a weekend hopper instead of the Tues/Wed restriction here. Flew Lynx 25 segments last year between YYC-YVR and have never been cancelled on, 3 segements late an hour. one segment early by 25 mins, others 'on time'.

Would do again

I think discussing airline safety is a moot point, when there is nothing negative on Lynx Air's history, just a whole pile of speculation, and Canada/USA aviation's safety record are higher than developing countries where airlines wouldn't be approved to fly to NA. If you're concerned about your plane landing safely, don't look into automobile accident statistics...

Also, don't forget the fun time an Air Canada plane almost landed on a crowded taxiway of four planes at SFO and almost caused one of the greatest aviation disasters in history.

do not fly lynx air.
literally the worst experience of my life.
flew them 2 times. N E V E R A G A I N...

flight 1... they didnt have any cabin crew in toronto... so they delayed flight and flew staff from edmonton to toronto.
oh they also lost my luggage.

flight 2... delayed flight.... 7.5 hours later we finally boarded... but then sat on tarmac in plane for another 1.5 hours.
oh they also lost my luggage again. also their cabin staff was a bunch of high school kids... literally brand new shirts and uniforms.. weird hair. no older then 19.

seriously do not do it. this airline is still experiencing growing pains.

Nothing to show for it other than saving money of course. If I did that volume with AC, would've made 25k or something spending double the money lol. Wish these ULCCs had a loyalty program even if it was barebones like Spirit.
Lynx doesn't have an app either, so customer service and accessibility is non existent and getting the PDF boarding pass on your email is a joke compared to Apple Wallet

How soon we forget! Let me remind you: Lion Air Flight 610, Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302,

But, in fairness, since the grounding, re-engineering and re-certification, these planes are probably among the safest flying.

Safe and reliable are completely separate metrics. Dispatch reliability for a 7M8 is probably over 98% I reckon with all the major airlines here in Canada
