I'm a 43 year old Capt. on the B737, been there sence '87. Most everyone on the staffing below 50% are right around my age and experince, and I don't think life is that bad or that I'm bitter.
Do you fly for us and speek from experience or are you just talking out your ASS?
And funny how the Non-scab MECs at UA, US, AA, DL gave into every request to gut their contracts without even a wimper... "d'uh"!
Have clue before you talk about something you don't know.

Captain Overs said:I don't think that should be a measuring stick as to how great your union is.
Captain Overs said:I can think of about any other airline that's a better place to work. CAL's image has be formed by their management team and this "Working together" plan. I can tell you it's not like it seems. If you do get hired don't bid the 73. Lots of bitter old captains. Also be prepared to constantly have your work rules and pay chisled away with an MEC controlled by "Scabs" who will give into company demands.
Captain Overs said:Don't know what I'm talking about? Please. The reason you guys didn't give up anything sooner than those "Non-scab MEC's at US, US, AA, DL.." is because you were already getting paid much less than they were! People came down to your level....
Name one. Is AA, DAL, UA, US, NWA really gonna be any better?? And if they're better, maybe you should hurry up and get hired on over there. Oh wait, they're not hiring... I dunno, from the sounds of it maybe you are one of those bitter old captains... maybe you could do us all a favor and retire, just go away.Captain Overs said:I can think of about any other airline that's a better place to work.
Captain Overs said:The funny thing is you didn't become one of the highest paid by getting a raise.
Where I work doesn't matter. I know what I'm talking about. Quit trying to distract the facts.
