It doesn't much matter because if the contract is ratified, we're all going to be using the company sponsored GE credit card for on the job expenses.

Grizz - are you sure about that? 23.15 says, in part, "Such reimbursement shall be made irrespective of the Crewmembers choice of expense methods or credit cards used."

That seems to indicate that we can still use the credit card of our choice. Is there somewhere else in the TA or an LOA that says we're all going to the GE card?

Asked T.G. directly about that issue. He said that section was left in there by mistake. Everyone will be on the company credit card because the only way to file a expense report will be with the online system and the GE card.

We'll still get points from the company card, the return just won't be as good as it is/was with the Amex HH card. There's also supposedly a cap on the points that can be earned with the company card.

That's not really true. The "cap" is 40,000 points, and you'd never spend $40,000 in on-the-road expenses on your own card. The Hilton points from the Amex card don't have the same value as one point on the company card, when factoring in all the points-per-dollar. Plus the company uses your company card to buy all your airline tickets, which adds considerable value. The only people who shouldn't really benefit as much from using the company card are those who have major airline travel bennies (ie retired airline guys), since they don't need them for tickets and instead prefer to earn hotel points. The online expense report is much less hassle as well.

FWIW.

I've been useing the company credit card for about six months now. It has been great. The fraud protection alone makes it worth it. I'll never understand why the fab 5 chose to make it such an issue.

I hope you're not one of those people paying their credit card company extra every year/month for "fraud protection". Federal law limits your liability to $50 and most all credit card companys waive that too.

the fraud protection is that if someone steals the credit card number, its the company's problem, not mine.

Love the company credit card, been on it since I was hired. Great to get the checks right away, fraud protection, and really easy to get and use the plane tickets.

Hilton Platnum Amex is the most common choice

I currently average two 6 night Hilton vouchers=12 nights and 4 free airline tickets a year. (Two free vacations a year) using my Amex Hilton card. I put everything I can on it at home and at work. This is a huge bennie I truly will miss if I have to switch to the company card. Booking the airline and hotel with points is a pain in the ass but the price is right. Please don't any of you internet nerds interpret this as a plug either way for the contract. Just stating my credit card choice/answering the question.

I guess I should qualify "free". All I had to do was sell my soul to NJA.

Welcome to the dark side.

With the new company card, do you get hotel and airline points? Do I need to sign up for all the flimsy little paper member cards for the hotels and airlines?

Because, as you notice, anything that HELPED the pilot group they worked against, and anything that hurt us, they worked FOR.

Needed to make a clarification on this - it wasn't Tom that told me about the requirement to use the company credit card. It was someone else on a Steward's call.

It's now looking murkier on this situation. Stay tuned for futher clarification as the BBWG moves forward.
