Anyone else heard this rumor? Im not going to post details, because I think it is BS made up by a mainline guy I talked to. But, if the word NUCO means anything to you then pony up. Thanks!

You must be talking about this stuff...

RE: NWA PILOT CONTRACT PROPOSAL.

successful business plan.

per
the Bridge Agreement.)
* Management's position is that ALPA gets no credit for $15M revenue
enhancement in the Bridge Agreement.
* Management's position is that ALPA gets no credit for pension
savings
from a freeze.
* Management views that as our non-Chapter 11 premium.
Management believes credits for revenue enhancements or scope changes
are inappropriate.

CONTRACT CHANGES.

* On
6/21/05 NWA presented ALPA with a list of possible contract
changes.
* NWA believes these changes produce $322M.
* Based on "UAL-bankruptcy like" contract for competitive purposes.
* Management indicated that how we produce the target amount is
immaterial to them.
Management's proposal would reduce required pilot staffing by 1181 (in
addition to the 500+ pilots on furlough).

Other miscellaneous cuts.

passenger block hours on aircraft types not in the NWA fleet.

hours
on aircraft types not in NWA fleet.
* In any year, NWA may schedule for wet lease 5% of the total block
hours
of the company to handle peak flying opportunities.
If new aircraft are on order, NWA may schedule for wet lease an
equivalent number of aircraft as a bridge until the new aircraft are
delivered.
