"New rule: once you join a regional, you stay at a regional. Majors should only hire military pilots, corporate pilots and heavy jet pilots from the non-sched/ACMI world. Why...because those pilots got their experience from activities that didn't undermine the very job they hoped to attain."

Ummmm NO.

Wasnt it the major pilots (like AA, using them as an example, I dont remember who operated the first jet regional aircraft) who gave up scope in the first place? It was the major pilots who let the genie out of the bottle.

Plus, major airlines, and major airline pilots on hiring boards, hire regional equipment pilots, so they must be good enough to get to the holy grail of a major, or heavy, 121 pilot seat.

That suggestion isnt worth a hill-o-excrement. Talk about being kept down by "the man".

Mainline gave up scope. Look in the mirror. Legacy pilots gave the "ok" to lawndarts almost 2 decades ago. It's like the crazy chimp. He's cute and harmless when he's a baby, but when he grows up he'll bite off your freaking face.

The way it should work is that when a major furloughs, the major furloughee can choose to flow back to his regional's code share partner and take a Captains seat at the top of the list, since the regional probably caused his furlough in the first place.

Are you looking for a debate Brown or just an opportunity to prove to everybody how great your thinking is? If not this, then please explain your thought process in bringing this up for debate? Seriously

No the guys sitting to his left caused his furlough...when they gave up scope 20 years ago because they didn't want to fly the baby jets. Didn't NWA fly F-27 up until the late 80's?

I think NWA's last prop was the Convair. Mesaba flew the F-27 for NWA back then.

What you are talking about is a bilateral flow up flow down with all branded flying. You might see this attempted here at DAL once the blood letting ends at DCI. It is a great concept in theory. What it basically does is keep the B scale off of the mainlines hands and away from its negotiation capital. Not necessarily good from a unity stand point, but it may be what is ultimately achievable.

I don't think so, for no reason other than nobody either at mainlines or the regionals has that much foresight.

What do you mean by 'B scale'?

Maybe we can get a proposal that makes you turn in your screen name and password. That way we don't have to ready your crap.

What happened to all your "one big happy family" crap? What about you talk of all of us together, singing the Barney song? Gen PeePants assimilate you since you left your lowly "commuter?"

-How soon we forget that the lowly "commuter" you claim to have worked for hired dozens of furloughed DAL guys a few years back-just not at the top of the list.

Brown is just a massive flamebater-ignore him.

What if we had a national seniority list? We would all hate each other...just like now.
