    Question for Delta Guys...how does "promptly" work for you?

    We here at AAG, AAL or whatever we are called now, are considering changing our wording in our reserve rules from "reasonably available" to "promptly" as the company says that is what Delta has. We have decades of past practice of reasonably available being defended. Some guys push it too far...

    Leaving Jetblue for anywhere

    True. Quite a few deferred recall but they have been out some 11, yes 11 years so they have made other arrangements and most likely are in a better place but want to keep their options open. You have to be on the property (and stay for a year) to shares in the equity stake, so that forced some...

    Leaving Jetblue for anywhere

    To update that last sentence....ALL furloughs have been offered recall and word around here is hiring off the street in September.

    AA Contract UPHELD!!

    Much going on here behind the scenes. The judge used 105 and 3/4 pages to say AMR made its case and APA did not, yet he still denied the motion! I find that to be extraordinary! AMR made their case and the two points he denied on are minor in the eyes of the BK process. Why did he deny the...

    AA Contract Abrogated!

    I apologize for this thread. Got a bad email this morning from APA and am guilty of a false start. I am in shock at the decision! A big win I think. Unit

    APA Pilots Reject TA

    The short answer is its a revenue problem. With all the pull backs, AA doesn't have the route structure to attract the business traveller anymore. AA has to get bigger fast to generate the revenue UCAL and DL does. USAir is the only one out there. We need more East Coast presence to capture the...

    AA Pilots BOD turns down Last Best Offer from AMR!

    Good question...it was explained to us as a means to an end. A deal with AMR is not an endorsement of their operation. It keeps us on the inside with respect to the creditors committee where we have some influence. With a 13.5% stake in the new company (if voted up) the pilots would have the...

    AA Pilots BOD turns down Last Best Offer from AMR!

    We got a one week extension yesterday. The BOD didn't vote it down necessarily on the merits but due to there not being any clear contractual language. I'm sure they will provide greater detail because we won't do another 2003 deal where we voted on an outline and the details turned out very...

    AA Pilots BOD turns down Last Best Offer from AMR!

    AMR has a revenue problem. They lose money in LAX, DFW, ORD, LGA. Break even in MIA and make money in JFK. AA's not big enough to recapture the flying we need to in order to survive. DAL and UCAL offer better options and service for the premium passengers. All AMR wants to do is...

    AA Pilots BOD turns down Last Best Offer from AMR!

    Yeah, I've be reading a lot of stuff. From the analysis it's logical that a AA/USAir merge has potential. The size of UCal and DAL marginalizes us independently, but figures can lie and liars figure. The devil is always in the details. We are facing a "bad or worse" decision on our side of...

    AA Pilots BOD turns down Last Best Offer from AMR!

    They/we have negotiated last week with another Federal Judge acting as mediator. No deals were struck. All three balls are in the judges court now. This has never happened where a consensual deal was not reached. On Friday, the judge could toss out all three contracts and let AMR implement the...

    AA Pilots BOD turns down Last Best Offer from AMR!

    Board of Director vote was 11 against and 5 for. No details released as of yet. Going to be interesting between now and Friday. 11th Hour deal? Complete contract abrogation by the judge? FA's and Mech's face abrogation too. High stakes poker... Unit

    Welcome to United

    AA is terrible too...agents are under orders to close the door 10 minutes early. I look for JSers in the computer when I pull the flight plan and walk the gate area until under 5 minutes of scheduled departure, much to their displeasure. They will leave people at the gate with empty seats. As...

    EK to IAD

    Good info..thanks. I like the idea of taking the $$ and living cheaper to shore up the FO pay, but the company accom would shield you from local market forces. I'd be keeping a household going here and the extra savings would help...the gang here isn't too keen on moving. I realize this isn't...
