What's the deal with all other fleets' November bid packets being out but the ATL CR2 bids aren't?

Any one know why?

Blame it on Delta

Issue Date:10/12/05
Exp. Date: 10/30/05
NOVEMBER 2005 PILOT
BID CLOSING
"Delta Air Lines determines what routes, type of equipment flown to a particular city and the times to that city. They also determine the frequencies of each flight. For November there are numerous Tuesday and Wednesday cancellations to many of the cities we serve. Couple that with the Thanksgiving and normal weekend cancellations and it does not leave you much to use. What is left has to be used to build pairings and lines. No leg can be used more that once and no leg can be returned. All aircraft were complete except the CRJ. The CRJ comprises about 75% of the flying done by ASA. Once the bid package is complete, it takes 12-13 hours to print the CRJ package. Since the CRJ paper bid package cannot be delivered until the 13th, all aircraft and domicile pilot bid closing must be delayed until 1200 on Monday 17 October. The rest of the November 2005 contractual dates will be complied with as stated in the contract."

translation: bid packets are not ready yet. Expect them tomorrow.

One more excuse for one more contract violation. "Well Delta did this, and Delta does this, so we will violate ASA's contract."

Who wrote this, and what abomination of a high school awarded him a diploma? The MEC should be all over this kind of stuff- but as usual, they won't be.

Al long as they extend the date the bids are due by the same amount of time they were late, WHO CARES? You guys act like the 12th is the only day you can work on the bid package.

I have been gone to long!

Didn't the bids use to come out on the 11th at 1700 a couple years ago? When did they change to the 12th?:confused:

You still get your same five days to bid, out on the 12th and due on the 17th.

Want a little cheese with your whine? I have plenty.

Bids have always been contractually due on the 12th by 5pm (since 9/98 anyway). With the advent of Flica, they have been able to get electronic bids out a day earlier, and have done so. However, they are not obligated to.

Ya, it is slowly coming back. I forgot about the paper bids prior to FLICA. Thanks!

It is not the date--It is the prinicpal of the matter. But you are right MEC does NOTHING AGAIN---We need in house union...ASK yourself--What has ALPA done for anyone in the last 2-3 years=NOTHING but take your money...

there should be advertisement in the airport about our company dragging their feet, but no there is a billboard about our patience wearing thin--it is ALPA and you are included! ATL-DAB first year FO--21.00 to take you there Atl-Buckhead Cab 60.00, come fly with us!!!

i think there are bigger fish to fry than the bids being one day late...you still have your 5 days to bid.

I agree. Vent your frustration on things that actually impact your QOL. It is stupid to grieve every little thing that comes along. If the company tries their best to fix something that they have screwed up then I'm happy with it. It's when they don't, or continually make the same screw ups that I start to have the problems.
