All of the new hires on the 767 domestic will be displaced. I know with the 73N displacing too I am going to the ER in ATL.

See you in class acl--thats my plan. Am I correct that if I am displaced, I can than move to a catagory that someone junior to me holds? Interesting that they are displacing off the ATL 767 domestic, I worked 70 hours+ all summer (and in Dec.) and have been fairly busy this winter as well. Is this flying being shifted to CVG or LAX? I know the -88 is short once the LOA expires in Mar., but this seems to put the 767 in the same boat for summer. I guess the one year conversion will by some time.

When future AE comes out (before Jan 2010), does it supersedes this posting? I think they put in a conversion date of a year for a reason to have more flexibility for the interesting times ahead of us in 09.

Thanks.

I agree, I think that they are setting themselves up for a miserable summer for the schedulers.

I will also try to MD to the 73N. I have a lot of people junior to me on that. Not sure if we will be able to hold ATL 7ERB

What they can do is cnx what has not been done and then post a new AE. There is a lot in play here, and there will be a change in mind set here in the next few months. They need to fill the 88B. to do this they are going to cause a lot of issues. Just watch the fire works in the next few weeks. I am sure the union is not overly happy about this.

ACL - do you think there will be more AE's prior to SOC? Like maybe the SEA ER base?

What issues are we talking about? They are short on the ATL88B and are displacing off the 767 domestic due to a 14% YOY reduction in flying. At least there's no net loss of positions.

acl65,

does the new jcba have any provisions for pay protection as a result of MD's? I have not found that section yet, if it exists.

I'll be getting bumped of the 767 domestic in ATL as well as a few 2001 hires.

Sorting through whether to be on rsv on the ER in ATL or a lineholder out of NYC and commute.


It will be interesting to see where the displaced 767 captains go to...

The issues that I am referring to is the amount of training that this will cause.
It is not the FO's that will cause the training, it is the bow wave from the 80 or so less CA positions that will cause the issues. Those guys are going to bid very senior positions These are going to be 91 hires with a lot of bidding authority.

Genuinely sorry to hear of displacements - what is the total damage across base/equipment? Hope it's short lived. Been there done that - it sucks - in the last 7 yrs I haven't done a single CQ - all quals/displacements/requals. Good luck to everyone.

This is what happens when you cannot hire to cover the shortage. This summer could prove to be a mess.

Hopefully the SEA ER base comes after the SOC. I definitely plan on continuing the Asia flying, SEA is close to home and the MSP NRT DH is waaay over-rated even in business class.

the really sad thing about this bid is you are diplacing guys out of their seats for a long, long time. By the time vacancies are posted to move people back up, we will be at SOC and many of the vacancies will be filled by NWA pilots.

Get ready to commute to MSP or DTW when you want to bid up to something bigger!

This merger is such a great thing. Thank god we merged, otherwise we would be hiring pilots, that sucks, and nobody would be forced to work on their days off this summer, on the other hand the few guys who actually live up in NY are going to start commuting as well, so everybody should get great treatment in this wonderful merger.

How nice is that going to be, when you see a vacancy on the A/C you were just kicked out, and a pilot from a different airline takes it.... Just wonderful, let's just hope this AE cost the company at least 3 times more than planned. I know their sick leave is going to go through the roof. Not flame towards NWA, just towards the piss poor job my union did, and on top of it all, they want more money from my paycheck..... Any more good news?? oh yeah, SOC in a few weeks, right ACL?
