Very true, just trying to get all the facts on the table though. For those who are looking to come here many don't know all the grievances currently on file- a search from even a month ago would lead them to believe they would be getting an extra $1250 over the course of their first 6 months.They were illegal breaches of status quo, anyway.
Thats sad. What are they trying to find out on here? HOw much people really hate where they work?TO PNCL FOLKS: MGMT DOES TROLL Yep.... I'm on to you bud.
You'll make more money in training than when you hit the line the first year! 3 years ago it was no hotel, no pay!The new hire "incentives" are now gone. Only hotel and $400/wk. No OE or 6 month bonuses, and no referral bonuses. Supply and Demand....
They troll for info everywhere, but they're especially fond of fishing for info over on FI. I know for a fact that the base managers have been watching FI for years now. Probably one of the reasons that they didn't like me very much.Thats sad. What are they trying to find out on here? HOw much people really hate where they work?
$400/wk? That is good money! I got $300/wk.meyers I replied to your PM....
Resigning the seniority number? I was told "No" when I called and asked about a month ago when a friend was going to send his stuff in (furloughed).
Airline apps.... I don't know what the "official" stance is but the same friend as the seniority issue was told to "update airline apps" and she already had his resume so I would assume HR is working towards airline apps.

Thankfully I think a good number of FO's who wanted the first upgrade they could get just put in for ATL. My wife wants me to wait until a class after the holidays and I have the time and age now so I am "evaluating" when to update my standing bid. I have always said I would upgrade ASAP but waiting 1 vacancy to have QOL for the holidays and a new year's trip may be worth more than a few extra $K. I will definately have my standing bid in for MEM for the first proposed date after Jan 1. We shall see. From what I can tell I will have about 10 below me in MEM and be about 35 from a hard line (about 30 from a HS).It's not a very good atmosphere over here right now. Volitile would be a good description, actually. We're basically a match light away from burning the place down. On the one hand, we're one of the few hiring now. On the other, if you get an interview offer from Mesaba....run there, don't walk.
Ken, I looked at the latest award for ATL, and I would have BARELY been able to get CA on that one. Good news is 3 more MEM CAs are moving over there, so now I should only be about 20 away from holding a high speed line.
Has there been a press release on additional 900's? Reason I ask is we are working up to our 16 + 1 spare (17 total) and currently only have something like 11 or 12 delivered. So these 3 or 4 may be some of the rest that are coming on line from the original/revised deal. I have NOT heard that we got more than our original amount, although rumors have all kinds of crazy stuff "supposedly" happening.Yup. . .looks like PNCL is getting 4 of the -900's. . .Funny how that is.
I don't tend to say stuff like this, but. . .one of the primary reasons Delta awarded the -900 flying to Pinnacle was because ASA did not have a contract yet, 4 years into a negotiation.
And yet - you guys are stalled for a number of reasons.
Here's to getting a contract. . .
the point someone else was trying to make is aren't you guys already taking deliveries for 900's. These aren't additional deliveries?You guys have access to DeltaNet? Sorry, I said 4 -900s, it's really 3.
Just search october 2008 fleet update. First link, then Delta/DC Fleet data.
Freedom sees a decrease in 3 -900s, and magically Pinnacle sees an increase in 3 compared to the September fleet layout.
