Ran accross a blog that had an article in it comparing the Newco deal at NWA as putting pilots at fast food restaurant levels of compensation and work rules. If you click on the link, the guy that wrote the blog article got a letter from a NWA DC-9 guy...sounds like not only are they going to make them regional pilots, but they are going to be making them guys start out like a new hire at Newco. This is insane! Remember last year when that military guy was bragging up Newco, how NWA pilots weren't going to let XJ and Pinnacle fly the 70 seaters and how Newco was going to be THE stepping stone job for getting into NWA.
