Currently, non-owned DCI pilots are only allotted 3 or 6 international travel days per year, jumpseating included. This goes against the jumpseat agreements our unions have agreed upon with DL/NW pilot unions. Currently we can only take one international trip per year on Delta or Northwest, while a pilot from any other airline can jumpseat overseas as much as they'd like.

Can the Pinnacle/Mesa/Rep/DL unions do anything about this? We have guys with homes/girls in Asia and elsewhere that are forced to fly offline (United is great) and are treated worse than pilots who don't do anything to benefit Delta's bottom line.
