I know we have staffing issues on the 200, but the same thing is happening on the ATR as well. I have 30 hours of cancellation already this month and they just called me and cancelled my first round trip of a 4 day. I haven't flown an entire 4day trip this month. Anyone have info on this?

Oh please: I imagine you crossing an ASA picket line, with a cup of hot coffee in your hand.

Are they cancelling them, or "downgrading" them to RJs? I know its cancelled on your schedule, but just wondering about the swaps.

Lies!!
I guess there's been a few ATR's with a deferred pack and one with a pack with really low output that pilots have been refusing to fly in the heat. I don't blame them. I heard someone talking about it'll cost $10,000 to replace and the company doesnt want to spend the money on it since it still technically "works".

We're canceling 5-10 flights a day due to lack of crew... mostly RJ's because we are short on captains. And that is on a good weather day!

Once again a glowing example of a no-talent management, with the completely uninspired workforce.


If the serious mistakes and incompetance of management didn't impact the pilots QOL, all this would be hilarious.

We are not just short on captains we are short FO's. I was talking with an I.P. that said part of the slow upgrade is the fact that they can't replace those FO's switching seats. Look at the Line awards for Aug.

ATR: -7CA
CRJ: -33CA, -32 FO
CR7: -2CA
SLC: -6CA, -3FO

And they can't get enough trained because we are losing instructors right and left. 1+ months between training and IOE. What a system.

The Cancellations are not downgrades. I know we have one down for the passenger door which is projected to be out of service for a few more weeks. Then we have the one with pack problems. Hell, with 1/6 of our fleet of ATR's down, I am sure they have to cancell several flights a day.

Not sure it'll do you any good, but if you're offering...

The aformentioned was a question, not an offer, denoted by the "??" at the end of the sentence.

The sad thing is...I have a buddy in scheduling who meets the mins...has about 500 hours multi, was awarded employee excellence award...but they will not hire him because he has 3 speeding tickets.

Looks like the could overlook a speeding ticket if they are hurting that bad....

I can't even remember how many I had when I got hired. It was more than 3, less than 10. I had to go outside the box they provided. According to our BI rep, same went for most of my class.

I'm proud to say I haven't had any since.
