Yes. There are propeller driven airliners in service today, mostly on short routes.

I have never heard of that (although maybe you should suggest it to them). I am fairly active on COPA (Cirrus Owner and Pilot's Association), and I have never heard it mentioned.

I will tell you this - the parachute works. It's an emergency device, and the plane is rarely salvageable, and you *may* even get banged up - but the impact under canopy is almost always survivable. And that is far better than the outcome for most IMC loss of control or aircraft control failure situations in conventional aircraft.

Your subject choices are apt. But just bear in mind that, what Airlines are looking for when they say they are looking for future pilots, is exactly that (and nothing more). E.g; if at some point during the multi-staged interview process, you are given/placed into a scenario that is not 'on a plane', for instance. you're asked to role-play the role of a boss of a furniture factory, a disgruntled customer had phoned in and complained to your staff(a manager) about the color of paint used on a chair.. how do you resolve the issue?
Answer: YOU must take that scenario and make it plane/pilot related. So Boss=Pilot, staff(manager)=Hostess, customer=passenger, color of chair=brand of soda served..
And then you resolve THAT scenario, and follow up by going back to the furniture factory scenario. THAT is the type of candidate that will make it through to the simulator stage of pilot assessing

Send me some money and I will tell you the answer. Things that are free are not free. It cost you and me, time in our lives, for you to ask this question. I just used up some of my free time doing this.

Not likely. Flight schools get paid for teaching people how to fly. If they paid you for learning how to fly, they would go out of business. If you worked for them you could gain flight hours teaching others to fly, but you need hundreds of hours before you can become a flight instructor.

Your question does not make sense. You are mixing terms. Maybe I can help if I understand your question better.

As long as the plane is equipped for icing, which all airlines are, there is not really any added danger to flying in snow. Braking on landing may be affected if there's any accumulation but they keep close track on braking ability as each plane lands at the airport. Snow won't affect the way the plane flies as long as the wings are clear of snow on takeoff.

Usually it is airspeed of the aircraft. Each aircraft has different airspeed requirements for operation the flaps or landing gear. Usually that speed is determined by the airframe manufacturers and the design of the flap system component. You could built it strong enough to handle any airspeed, but a plane can only carry so much weight. If you built everything to work without any limitations you might have an airplane too heavy to fly. Designing a plane is a balance between lifting capability and weight. Both of these are important design parameters.

The type rating is required in aircraft that need additional training. It is a safety of flight issue not a for hire issue.

Your question is a good one - but the answer is much more complicated that you would expect. Think about driving your car from point A to point B across a city. Lots of paths - some shorter than others, but the shortest path may not be the quickest. Or the quickest may involve a toll road - and you may or may not be in a hurry.

The usual most important factor (for commercial operations, at least) is to save money, while still arriving on time. Airplanes in the air are subject to the winds aloft, which will generally be at different strengths AND DIRECTIONS at different altitudes. Most airplanes operate more efficiently at higher altitudes (up to limits), but at those higher altitudes the plane may face stiffer headwind. Further, it costs time and fuel to climb to those altitudes, and you will not regain coming down as much as it took going up. [Think of a bicycle on hilly terrain vs. level ground.]

So what's the answer? Well, for most trips the pilot will consider all these factors. They are taught during training how to plan the flight in terms of time and fuel required, and to include in that especially the winds at different altitudes. Then they will pick the altitude, whatever that is, that maximizes the results that they consider most important.
