Where's General Lee.....?

He needs to spew some sort of Delta (keep my Delta, your Delta we're awesome) angle on the results.

Oh wait... they're not in yet.

I just want to give a quick shout out to my buddies at "Band of Blue." These guys are the true heroes that know that unions are a thing of the past. Low wages and trash picking are the wave of the future. If only every airline has a group of visionaries like Band of Blue we would all be where we need to be - the land of 8 figure executive bonuses.

Dare to dream.

Well, from a "source" in Ozone Park and one in Yonkers, apparently a lot of ex USAir guys now at Jetblue are working with "local leaders" to set up shop next to "Vito's Repair shop" for a new "MEC Headquarters." Security at the establishment will be procured by "Vinnie the Rat" and "Antoine the Anus." (the latter being your new negotiator in any future contracts) Good luck guys!


Bye Bye--General Lee

At least Antoines head can fit through a doorway..

"Add mental snapshot of general posing for himself naked with only his hat and blazer on in front of exotic south american hotel mirror"

I walk around down there looking like Pinochet---and the girls LOVE IT. I sometimes wear my hat backwards like a baret too when I go to France....

Congrats on Bogota.....that will be fun for you guys. Make sure you go outside of the hotel compound and yell "I am an American!" Your blue TSA outfits will attract attention too.


Bye Bye--General Lee

Press release from Blue - The Barge thanks pilots for keeping Union off Property!

Welp, I guess that says it all for now. Good move guys n gals! Made no sense in this economy.

:pimp:​

Actually, getting JBPA on property would have been perfect in "this economy". I'd like to thank 1000 of my brothers for being so damn apathetic and not seeing the forest for the trees. Guess when you have tri-care our ********************ty health care and industry trailing pay just aren't important enough to try and lift up your company and industry.

Sad move.. the majority of the pilots are content to be the "tail end charlie" of the airline profession when it comes to compensation and protection..

Or, perhaps these 1000 see an opportunity to raise the existing bar at JetBlue such that when a union does get voted in down the road, we start negotiations from a higher level of compensation.

There is an up side to this, gents. We just have to take action to make sure our concerns are addressed. We have their attention--now is the time to take action.

JBLU pilots are pathetic.

Now who are you gonna call when your Airbus slides off the snowy runway in BUF. At the very least you should have voted this in to protect your families and your career.

You guys are playin with fire thinkin "they" are going to take care of you when the prverbial goo hits the fan.

Bad economy....I'll give you that....but legally you are on a road all by yourselves. Good Luck....

Thank god no union !


Now that you've all had a chance to vote in representation but failed to do so, don't be surprised when you are denied jumpseat privileges at a union carrier. Many pilots at NWA view the jumpseat as a union negotiated privilege. And they are correct. Good luck.
