Does anyone know the approximate number of retirements that B6 will have in the next ten years if age 60 is still in play. Getting this info from the company is nearly impossible...not sure why. I dont think we need to know names, rather just retirement dates.

Thx

As you mentioned..

that information is not readily available...

the pilot group is fairly young...
If I were to GUESS on how many current pilots are 50 or over...

10 to maybe 20% of 1100 pilots?

what would be more relevant in my opinion is the fact that there are about 82 airplanes on the property with about 320-340 on the way.

ASSUMING there is an airline industry and jet fuel in the future.
good luck..

Thx AV8-

How many a320 vs e190? Do you know how many pilots per A/C we are planning for. I am simply trying to figure out when I may hold a line as a CA.

6 crews per A/C. 200 E190s and 230 buses if all options are exercised. 430x12=5160 pilots

Double the amount of airplanes from when you came on the property. That will give you a rough idea.

Thats a very good question. A few years ago someone tried to put a seniority list together with birthdates, etc and the company put the kabash on it. I'm telling you guys, the company doesnt want us to know certain things for a very good reason. Its kind of funny when someone puts something on the crew room board that is at all critical of the company, its gone within a few hours. So much for open conversation and the open door policy. We need our own forum that mgmt. cant access.

Personally, this kind of company control would scare the he!! out of me.

...of a company that actually doesn't approve when "someone" puts critical things about the company on a company owned board in a (company) public space.

You'd be hard-pressed to find anywhere that the definition of "open conversation" is anonomously (or otherwise) posted bulletin board notices ragging on the company or it's policy.

Return to your hole, hobbit.

If I'm not mistaken, the list that had been circulated contained personal information (specifically birthdays, I think). The company said that it didn't want company resources (computers, network, etc) used to disclose private information, due to liability reasons.

At least, that's how I remember it. Maybe a flimsy excuse, maybe not.

I can say that I didn't really think anything of it at the time. Heck, I probably still have the old list somewhere on my laptop hard drive.

It would be nice, I suppose, to know exactly where I would end up at age 60 (even though I really hope to not have to work until then).

That's just one of the things a union does

And the 190 pilots will do it for half of that, hence the need for a union

Send out your info G4..

Maybe you could post your SSN, address, date of hire, where you work...better yet, just post your resume so someone can send you the list. I'll bet the JB seniority list could contain some confidential personnel information just like all the other ALPO union seniority lists contain.

But hey, I'll bet over half of the JB seniority are furloughed from union carriers. They most likely are still on their unions seniority list so you could get that information from ALPO. I'll even bet most furloughed JB pilots had a contract that included the ever popular "no furlough" clause in their CBA. That's what your union dues get you these days.

Go ALPO!

Yep, unions are aweful, history has shown that we would have been much better off witout them. (scarsam)

Interesting:

JetBlue called Michael E. McDonald this week to tell him his flight from New York to San Juan, Puerto Rico, next week was canceled. He had booked a 9 p.m. flight so he could get in a full day of work and be in San Juan in plenty of time for a wedding. But JetBlue offered a 3 p.m. flight, meaning he'd miss much of the workday, or a flight the next morning, which was cutting it too close for the wedding.
"According to the agent, the airline could not completely fill the plane that I was to fly, and had canceled the flight," Mr. McDonald says. "What should I do in the future if this problem should occur again?"

This is a problem travelers are going to run into a lot this fall, I think. So it's worth reviewing options.

In Mr. McDonald's case, JetBlue did give him nine days of notice, which proved crucial. That's a lot better than what Delta proposes. I think Delta risks deeply angering customers with fuel-price cancellations on relatively short notice. Early morning and late-night flights are the most likely to be canceled, Delta said, but business travelers in particular use those flights for a specific purpose -- to get an extra night at home or put in a full day of work, for example. Canceling those flights may mean not being able to get home for an important event after a day of meetings, or having to leave a day earlier for a trip and missing a kid's sporting event.

Mr. McDonald didn't like the choices JetBlue offered, so he called American and booked better flights, paying only $272 since he had more than a week's advance notice. That's more than his $198 JetBlue fare bought in July. JetBlue will refund that without any penalty, of course, but Mr. McDonald asks if JetBlue should make him whole.his is a problem travelers are going to run into a lot this fall, I think.

Huh?
G4G5,

Looks more like the change over due to winter schedule, but am curious how he ended up with a ticket on the evening departure.

Looked at our website, and it does not show a 9pm departure, so it is no longer scheduled. I do not think DAL would get into hot water if they changed their schedule, but DAL looks at the loads and then cancel as close as two day prior.

ATLANTA (AP) -- Delta Air Lines Inc., the nation's third-largest carrier, is prepared to use the bankruptcy court to achieve $325 million in cost concessions from its pilots if the company and union can't reach a deal on their own, chief executive Gerald Grinstein said Thursday

lets see how well DALPA will protect the profession...............hence the need for a union...
