Looks like AAI had a good month. We boarded 6,000 more pax with more then 160,000 less seats then in the same quarter of 2008. Load factor rose from 73.9% to 80.4%.......... While everyone else is hurting AAI is starting to turn around, in a big way....... Well....... Show me the money. Alaska rates +2% should be about right!!!!

Alaska rates would be nice, but since we don't fly 737-900's don't hold your breath.

AAI could order -800/900's from Boeing instead of more -700's when the time comes. I'm sure Boeing would oblige. Would then be easier to justify the higher payrate for the 737, though only incrementally because getting a different rate for the -700 vs. the -800/900 would be difficult. Management would want to blend the two.

Absolutely,

I see no differential in pay at Alaska between the 737-700,-800, or -900 so apparently it makes no difference as far as their management is concerned. I think we should aim higher. I hope our negotiating committee is paying attention.

BTW, I do see alot of griping from Alaska guys about those very same TA pay rates.

Don't sell yourselves short, go industry leading, SWA+!!!! All rates are still below what was paid prior to concessionary industry contracts!

If they bought 800/900's the extra seats would increase revenue/profits. That would make the case for higher pay rates/contractual improvements easier to make.

Exactly!!

Plus retro pay.

The NC better deliver this or be prepared for another no vote on the next T/A. That would be 3 in a row. Next would be a strike; no doubt about it with the solidarity we have now from the ALPA merger coupled with the continued intimidation and harrassment by Management.

Oops . . . . I thought this string was about AAI management water-boarding pilots . . . . probably for wearing ALPA-issued lanyards. :laugh:

Don=Strike EVERYONE LOSES !!!

Why not just do as ASA did and go to 35% on time--12 days later, TA.

Control the throttles, and love those seats in the back that shows metal?? The cushions just slid out on most seats on most aircraft.

Now the lanyards.. lets see how everyone takes this

Our agreement with Boeing allows us to convert current -700 orders to -800 orders with 18 months notice. Current contract already has a 13% pay over ride for -800's.

Anything less than ALA + 1% + retro would be completely unacceptable.

Good luck with that. They have to be the weakest pilot group out there. I agree at this point almost 5 years into this something needs to be done. That would be a good step.
