Oh Please. That's bullshit!
There is no way you can compare Chautauqua to Mesa. Our Contract and pay is better than half of the regional's and Majors right now and the Contract is only going to get better in 07. I'm sorry you're a Mesa guy.

E-170 you are flying for $5 per hour. What do you get paid for per diem, trip rig, duty rig, premium pay, customs pay, out of position pay???... When do you start getting paid? We get paid with the door shut and the beacon on even if we have to sit on the ramp for 3 hours. when we land and go to the box thats more money for us.

Same for us. Does Mesa get Block or Better? Oh no! That's right, Mesa gets paid for Credit hours. Fly from CLT-XNA (a 1.5 hours flt) and you have to hold for 1.5 hours but you still get paid just for the flight. Our Per-diem goes up every year per the contract right now it's at $1.45 and in Oct will go up to $1.50.

The unfortunate thing is that Mesa has a good pilot group and could have a descent contract which they deserve. Stop lettimg the Mesa Management dick you guys around.

Exactly what flavor is the Kool Aid that Sh!ttaco management keeps giving you guys? Ya'll sure as he!! seem to digest a lot of it.... Your contract is no more of an answer to the problem than Mesa's.

No.......vast overgeneralization. Just people letting emotions get the best of them.

Better than half of the majors? Care to elaborate further on this piece of your statement?

I also love how CHQ pilots expect some sort of magic to happen in 2007 when their contract is amendable.
