thank you for saying it first.
as much as i lament the rjdc- everyone would be better off if all brands were on the same list. but it was post 9/11 that showed so many true colors.
industry wide- to furlough while outsourcing to more RJ's is confusing at best- and unforgivable at worst. It's certainly not unionism.
That's what baby-boomers do. Take the opportunities that allowed them to walk through the door-(ie:small jet flying, age 65) and sell them to management in order to keep what they've got for themselves.
But i hear the boat market in south florida is down at least $100k so i'm sure something more has to be done.
So back in the 80's when mainline management said to the pilot groups.... we are going to contract out some flying. Others companies with their own operating certificate, dispatch, management etc.. will operate flights under our code share...
How does DAL or UAL pilots respond to that?
Can a pilot group stop their company from using vendors? If so, how? (recall this is during the Lorenzo era)...
