I saw on some boards that some Class acts are Mesa are picking up open time while pilots are on furlough. Are these the same micro wangs that jumped to Freedumb A for the 900s?

The majority of the originals are gone. But at this point MAG is for once in its retched existence is saturated with pilots and over staffed. Me for one, I don't pick up any open-time with pilots on furlough. But its hard to sell to the pilot group since most of them think ,"well if i don't do the flying some reservist will"...But then again, most pilots are not the hard hitting ALPA pilot as myself... I do NO favors for the company.

Have you every met a mesa pilot or even hung out with any? MAG pilots are some of the coolest you will ever know. I have only run into 2 asses my whole time here..If it weren't for the great people in the pilot group..i would of gone crazy

You sound like a socialist. Its alwasy been this way and it always will be... Pilots are too selfcentered.

I have picked up open time in the past myself. But not that often mostly because it's tough to do when your pushing 30 in 7 and a 100hrs a month anyway.

On a positive note yesterday I had one of our FAA certificate inspectors tell me we had an ERJ class scheduled to start soon. If this is true then it looks like our furloughed new hires could be coming back on line.

Fly safe guys.

You guys hardly get any days off. Why pick up flying? Pinnacle isn't much better, but at least I get 18 days off a month. I remember talking with a senior mesa crew in the van, and they told me they were lucky to get 15 days off.

More than a few are MAPD so they paid to get a job at Mesa. Forget about those guys, they wold go on their knees in a second for JO. And even more are there because they either couldn't get hired by any other place. Then there's the other classic Mesa group. The guys with daddys already at a reputable place, just went to a bottom feeder for a quick upgrade. I mean look at the whole MESA operation does it look like they care?

Jeez man! You obviously havent met the awesome MAG crews that I have out of IAD and ORD. Seriously the maybe 35 or so pilots that I have talked to were awesome and the same goes for a few of their flight attendants who I've shot the s##t with over the past 9 months.

Someone needs more...or less weed....

I did time at mesa for 3.5 years. I meet some good and bad people there in that time. Some CC air "aces" and some Phx A-listers are most likely the open time ******************************s I am guessing. Do you guys still have an FO that likes to wear his old 4 stripe blazer? Or was that master of disaster finally fired?

Yeah, we all know this never happens at other airlines. :rolleyes: I guarantee this is even going on at the almighty XJet with 300+ on the street.
