There will always be a few, like the guys you spoke with, that thought they got F'd in the merger. All you have to do is tell then to read the award written by the 3 arbitrators, they give their reasons.
Bye Bye---General Lee
It's been more than a few guys junior. Their beef is the way the panel came down with the SLI. The two sides were not equal as far as seniority, due to the fact that most DAL pilots bailed to get the Lump Sum fearing a loss of their retirement. This unloaded a huge number of senior pilots and gave the ones who remained a super seniority boost. When compared against the NWA list it matched DAL pilots right along NWA pilots. Never mind the fact that they gained that seniority in a quick sweeping moment. Hey, I don't work at either airline, but that's the common complaint I've heard from the former NWA guys. You just might not want to hear it.
