Can the company give 190 flying away down the road once the management figures out a regional can do the same level of service for at least 10% less.
Were you here during the E190 integration? Management used ExpressJet to cover certain flights while the E190's were sent to BNA for mods.
Management will be the first to tell you that they (ExpressJet) did a great job, but that is not the experience that our customers have come to expect.
While management can do it, the question one would ask is why? If it were money, they would never have brought the E190 on the property to begin with. If money were so important, we wouldn't have a lot of what we have outside of our contracts.
They did that already. They lowered first year pay. It's still an upgrade from Cape Air though.
Those that got pay raises did so because JetBlue found a way to finance them and make them cost neutral.
PTS for example. Now I just fly sick rather than lose the premium pay.
Sorry, back to scope.
False, individual contracts with the pay rates prevent them lowering pay. the first year guys on the property were grandfathered in because of the contract. new hires will get the lower rate, but no one has it now.
