So, as I told Paul, I'm sure I know the answer but, does anyone have the official word out of the meetings yesterday at PSA regarding the 900's?
lol yes, I want to undercut my pay and mainline because I want a brighter, bigger jet with BIG windows. I HATE deadheading in the 200 with those stupid small, low windows! If I have to pay 2.00 for a drink I want a view dangit! (End joking rant).Get the 1000's. They have bigger windows.
Its bad to say but I am enjoying my gig right now. I kind of am hoping I can bypass for a while! But those who want to go back I wish they could! I personally am ok bypassing for as long as I can! I really have NO desire to go sit reserve again!But if that means we are going to be waiting even longer for a re-call, hell with that.
Don't get me wrong. I don't know you. But that is about the stupidest thing I have ever heard anywhere. Ever. You'd better pray that you are never part of a pilot group where that mentality prevails.Fly the big rj for 60-something bucks an hour and get out when you can.
I figured your phone would be blowing up so I figured I'd save you the memory space .Don't get me wrong. I don't know you. But that is about the stupidest thing I have ever heard anywhere. Ever. You'd better pray that you are never part of a pilot group where that mentality prevails.
Apparently none of you were one of the 22 people that called/texted/IMed/emailed me today to ask what was going on. Moral of the story is that the 900 rate negotiation has been ongoing for 3 years now. It's a back and forth process and because during most of the time it's been going on (with a few rare exceptions here and there) there hasn't been any actual airplanes sitting around waiting for a crew with a pay rate to fly them so there hasn't been any rush to get it done. If I recall this was a meeting to get managements resonse to a union response from several months ago that was a response to managements proposal from a few months before which was a counter proposal from a union proposal from some time last year and so forth and so on.
Nothing to get all excited about as of yet.
I respectfully disagree. It's still a CRJ any way you slice it or dice it. A really big one albeit.Which is waaaaaaaaaay too low.
Remember, the -900 will be a DC-9 replacement.
It's not a big RJ.
It's a DC-9.
