Interesting reading. It seems the Comair MEC was saying that before any Delta furloughed pilot could fly there, that it would be necessary for Delta to get rid of it's scope provisions. Seems like Comair was looking out for themselves.

I wont post that again. Someone had asked for it! I agree there is a different mentality with the newer Comair guys! Point taken!

I think most of us who have been at comair for the last three years or so dislike it as much as you do acarpe.

I have been at Comair for 6 years and I don't agree with it as well as acarpe. 97% of the guys I have flown with don't agree with it. there is always that 3% that hard to deal with.

I'm around the 6 year mark as well, and I also don't agree with what happened.

We all know you're bitter Acarpe. Rightfully so?Maybe.

Fact of the matter is a LOT of us on these boards have had a tough career also.

I'm just asking you to PLEASE be civil with your comments when it comes to us at Comair. Not all of us are A$$holes!

Acarpe, why don't you take some of your frustrations you have with Comair and direct them in the proper location by smacking the DAL MEC for letting Comair get those stinking RJs in the first place.

Acarpe, you still never answered me from the other day.

If you were forced to leave the industry because Comair wasn't hiring Delta guys, why didn't you go to ASA or Skywest?

ASA and Skywest had already hired their quota of whining bitc4es and didn't have any more room for a$$carpe.

My man, let it go. No one cares about what happened back in 2001. Everyone cares about what is happening now. Really, no one gives two ishts.

Thats fine. That is your opinion! You know what the Comair pilots did that screwed us! I do care, and so do many other Delta pilots that spent years out of work.. It's not the point that many wanted to go to Comair, it's the fact that Comair was doing anything they could do to keep us from coming back while improving their careers at the same time!

Oh your real funny there buddy! A$$carpe! Real original! What are youin fifth grade. I know you did not graduate college, that is why you are at Comair! Get ready to flip burgers. That should be a pay raise for you!

Yes some do still care and remember. Those hired after had nothing to do with the JC era but those that were there did. Those of us furloughed will not forget.

I remember the entire Comair strike, a friend of mine was there during it all. I am just wondering how much their pilot group has changed. How many pilots are at Comair right now? What is the hire date and seniority number of the more Jr pilot who was hired before the strike? Where would I be on the seniority list if I would have gotten a job there early in 03'? Just wondering, thanks

I graduated college and I am at Comair, what is your point. The reason why I am at Comair is it WAS a good regional to ride out this downturn in the industry. There hasn’t been an option for me to move up. It takes PIC time and as a 6 year fo at Comair and a 8 year FO all together I haven’t been given the chance to get that time. Even if I had it at this point I either would be here or furloughed.
