The over/under is at 7 pages. Have fun...


The UAL-MEC has directed your Jumpseat Committee to seek an agreement with the Continental Jumpseat Committee whereby each carrier would grant a higher jumpseat boarding priority to each group of pilots. Your Jumpseat Committee has obtained this agreement and has become effective on October 28, 2009.

This agreement will be applicable to the mainline operation and will not include the respective express carrier code share flights. On Continental flights, United pilots will be placed in priority immediately below the Continental pilots and above their express partners. For United flights, Continental pilots will be assigned a J3 classification per the OMC category guidelines in our FOM and will place them above all UAX pilots. Currently, FOM xx.xx.xx assigns the J3 category to United interns and requires a cabin seat assignment as well as a meter of authorization. Continental pilots will not be required to have a cabin seat assignment or meter authorization for Jumpseat access. UA flight operations will be issuing similar information regarding the J3 classification in the front page news section of Unimatic. The J3 category will be updated in the next FOM revision cycle. United FODM’s have been briefed on this category change too.

With all procedure changes, we caution you there may be some issues that may arise during the initial implementation. If a Continental pilot is encountering a problem obtaining a United jumpseat, please contact the FODM for immediate assistance and your Jumpseat Committee, when time permits. Should you encounter a problem on a Continental flight, please contact your Jumpseat Committee via phone (and file a JSAP report.

Should you have any additional questions regarding the agreement, please contact the MEC Jumpseat Committee.

First DB to use the phrase "jumpseat jihad" will be disqualified from, well, everything.

OK, then I will let any regional pilot on my jumpseat (except gojet) before a united or continental pilot. Sounds fair to me.

Actually you will let them on per your companies agreement with thier company. It is easy to talk tough behind your keyboard. If you want the order changed get your union to work out the order. If you go rogue you will cause a lot more harm to your pilot group.

Agreed. Although it looks like the legacy MECs are intentionally starting trouble. The permanent "B" scale wasn't enough?

The NWA and Delta pilots did this also. They were smart enough to wait until after the merger was announced though. Seems like the UAL and CAL pilots are doing this a little premature. I guess their philosophy is if there going to be the same company in the long run, no harm, no foul. Yes, I am implying they are going to merge eventually (for those you can't take a hint).

No, I won't. They have already gone rogue by having those two parties agree to creating two classes of pilots.

Whatever you say. The airlines that OWN the seats will just change the nonrev priority for their employees. Delta did this and my bet is ual/cal will to. The late 90s thru the first decade of this century were the glory days for the subcontractors. Here on out things will change. Get use to it and get your resume ready..

...As are their regional partners. For instance, I had to do a right seat landing on my last recurrent for "Star Alliance Requirements."

Ooo, ooo, I am a member of Star Alliance! What do I win?

(Thats what I win? Where do you plan on sticking that thing?)
