chperplt said:It's probably in there because it's not an unsafe altitude for the aircraft provided certain performance criteria are met.
FLYINOKRA! said:From what I've been told since I'm one of the first FO's in the CRJ, my sen. will be high and that will help me to get a better schedule.
shamrock said:You do understand that being one of the first FO's on the CRJ won't make any difference if and when people senior to you at the company move over to it, right?
T-handle said:Actually FLYINOKRA, with Mesaba's 3 year seatlock on FOs, you won't see any current FOs move over to the CRJ. Unless they have no desire to upgrade after 3 years (because if they move over to the CRJ FO they will be seatlocked for another 2 years), as a new CRJ FO in MSP you'll be on the top of the list and eventually get good schedules (good and schedule do not necessarily go together at Mesaba).
But do u get my drift? You'll have seniority over future CRJ FOs for bidding purposes. We get 15 airframes which equals to about 60ish FOs? You're in the second class? you'll be sitting pretty good seniority wise and assuming we get the next 20, then you'll be sitting even better.
