Obviously, Mr. Spirito have no clue about the hiring process in regional airlines. Nore about the requirments for mayors and regional airlines.
Experience improve safety and the only way to masure experience in a pilot is with flight hrs. Make your oun reaserch and find pilot hiring hrs at the regionals; 600 hrs and below... unlike mayors 5000 and more.
So, theoretically Who is safer?

The following statement is not true at all...
"regional carriers are just as safe, take the same precautions and hire pilots as equally credentialed as those of major airlines."
Regional pilots were being hired with only 250 hours of flight time while at the majors they were being hired with at least 5000 hours. The people making these statements are airline managers or government officials who screwed up. Low pilot pay and bad rest rules have been a huge problem that has been falling on their ears for way too many years.

A professional minded person will do his or her best at their job. However "Who" you get, their "Experience" level, their "Training credentials" are not going to be identical for low pay vs high pay. If you want the cheapest pilot money can buy don't expect an ex-military fighter pilot who had over 5 million dollars worth of training and 20+ years experience. This concept should not escape anyone as it applies to almost any vocation. You get what you pay for. You don't get a "Sully" for a "Marvin" price. Marvin will do "his" best for you but when the chips are down if it isn't good enough don't complain. You got the cheap ticket. You got the cheap pilot.
The only surprise about this accident is that it did not happen sooner. The only question remaining is what flight will be next? The explanation on why is clearly explained here:
