Can somebody verify this horrible rumor as truth or fiction?

Delta and Comair are CASS approved but ASA is not? :mad:

I can't confirm it, but I have also heard that it's true, and we probably didn't hear it from the same person...

If Comair is CASS approved we know nothing about it yet. :(

DL/OH/EV are *not* currently in the CASS system much to the dismay of many of the commuters at my company who try to fly on them. We also had a pilot last week that was unable to ride his Dad's DL retirement flight because DL is not in CASS. Hopefully that will be fixed soon and we'll all have a better chance at getting to/from where we want to go.

I wonder ...

What is the cost of the CASS system to the airline?

It would be very unfortunate if all pilots who supported CASS were to stop single engine taxi-out, taxi-in, and all other fuel conservation efforts. I certainly wouldn't want to promote such an idea. After all, that would be wrong.

The happiness of pilots is inversely proportional to fuel flows. You'd think they'd have figured that out by now.

I checked with American Eagle on Aug 1. Delta is on CASS, Comair is not. Has anyone heard from Fred about CASS and Comair?

Finally some discussion about Comair and the CASS system. I have been trying to get information for months now on the implementation status. (Of course all emails to the FO reps go unanswered)

Wait, I thought we (DL) are CASS. Comair is not CASS. The IATA doesn't allow regionals to have the CASS program yet I believe.

Delta is most deffinetly CASS approved. It was effective 7/26/05 ... as to the pilot that was not able to ride in our jumpseat... if it was after that date, then his airline must not be CASS... prior to that date, it was Delta's fault. Bummer though... I missed riding on my Dad's retirement flight a few years ago since I was on furlough so I know how he feels....

It cost $1000 to join and $600 a month regardless of the size of the airline, number of pilots.

ARINC administers the program, Mr. Dave Thatcher in Annapolis, MD.

$600 per month - $20 per day?

I'm fairly sure that disgruntled pilots can burn more than that in taxi fuel and rated thrust-vs- flex thrust takeoffs.

Let's see - 800 flights per day at about 100lbs extra per taxi = 80K lbs per day. That's nearly $12,000 per DAY.

Geez - you would think someone in the Crystal Palace has thought about that.

A little good will goes a long way.

Not true. I'm an ATL commuter, and the DTW Delta gate agents confirmed me in CASS just yesterday morning. The DAL CASS system is working just great. Also, the pilot did get to ride on his dad's retirement flight unless you're talking about a different guy. He had to get some paperwork taken care of from the TSA since it was before Delta's CASS system was approved last week, but it was taken care of in time for the flight.

PCL I may have misunderstood what he said, its possible. I also posted that at like 0200 and I'm on my 6th day in 7 in this wonderful room where we have to make sure we have enough people to cover all the wonderful flying that we have.....September still looking good for your upgrade?

6th day in 7? Dang, they work everyone to the bone around here. :)

It looks like I'm the 5th most senior guy on the upgrade award, so it'll probably be a Sept class. Hopefully the 5th of Sept, but maybe the 17th. You'll probably see it on my schedule before I even know. ;)
