First, if you don’t make CA in three years you either chose the wrong regional or failed your upgrade.  There are a few regionals hiring Captains off the street that meet 121 mins.  A few more are upgrading FOs as soon as they have the 1000 hour part 121.  That is well under 3 years.  


You are right to consider the lost income over time and estimate how long to break even.  This isn’t a sprint, it is a marathon and doing good math ahead will help folks make a better decision.


you are not junior forever, and again, QOL is more dependent on living in domicile than on where exactly one falls on the seniority list.  I cannot emphasize this enough... live in base.  


10 years??  Not even close.  It took me 3 to break even. YMMV
