Have you really looked into the SKYW work rules? You would be taking a major cut overall. And the one list with them. Look at how PNCL, Mesaba & Colgan list was handled. I think you would come up on the very short end of the stick on that one.
Some questions that need to be asked :
1. Did he attempt to pick up time
2. Did he have any unfinished business with the MEC and or any other work with National or management
3. Did the new MEC communication to him how the transition should take place going back to the line
You have to have money buy new a/c. AA nor any other Mainline will finance them anymore.
"Likely"?? If they were in serious talks with AA there would be no "likely". They either are or are not interested in the E170/175.
Two things. one, if the scope clause allows more larger a/c and two....the only reason you have this clause is because of the ASA management team that made it apart of the CPA. Not your former management team.
