So the other day I heard a company Jetblue AC ask for a ride report. The controller asked a NWA flt ahead what the ride was like. The response " no dues, no news". There was a long pause and the controller said " okay". I just about died laughing. That was good NWA pilot. Myself being extremely pro union thought it was great.

Next time a NW jump asks for a ride I will tell them that we couldn' posible give him a ride because we don't pay dues.

BTW the 4th year E190 FO makes the same rate as a 4th year DC-9 FO.

No they don't, NWA pays 7 bucks more. If you are going to state the facts, state them correctly. I think the overall package is just a weeee bit better at Delta than Jetblue, without the stupid blue shirts

I agree. 67% are too stupid though.

I guess reading and comprehension wasn't required at Jet Blew! Don't let facts confuse you!;)

*yr 4 DC9 (NWA/Delta) = $86.00/hr

*yr 4 E190 (JB) = $79.00/hr


At least you're qualified to clean the cabin and wear those cool blue shirts that make you look like a TSA stooge!

I'd be curious to hear what that same Northwest crew says to the scab MX guys when they come to fix a write up.

Duane Woerth told them it was an mechanics' issue and ALPA didn't want to get involved in their strike.

And we wonder why no one takes our profession seriously.

Guess who showed up to work in 1998 when the pilots were on strike.

Yeah, great point even though a 4th year CAPTAIN at Compass pays $68/hour. You fools are pissing into the wind.

I wonder how many airplanes compass has returned?
I wonder how much compass gets paid for cabin cleaning?
Also, last time I checked, compass was HIRING!
