A similar question could be asked about DAC and Flight Options: Why would they run a company so as to demoralize the pilot group with starvation pay, no retirement, cheap hotels, etc? Pretty much everything but the meal plan here is bottom of the barrel.
The answer seems to be that it doesn't matter. We still turn a good profit for DAC, which they use to support the other businesses in their portfolio. And as long as they have a stack of resumes a foot tall for every pilot position, they have no reason to change it. The Union is good for protecting what little we have, but the crippling restraints imposed by the RLA make it very difficult to make forward progress.
That business model works for them here at the Options storefront, why would they not try to implement it with the Flex storefront?
Of corse they would, and they are..Seems like an awesome company. Proud to be part of the DAC team.
