Republic/Mesa guys, I need your help.

I am a Pinnacle pilot, and our management just announced our new travel benefits under Delta. The new "Benefits" are horrible compared to the ones we've had for years under NWA. Our management is telling us they had no choice, and Delta forced them on Pinnacle.

My question to all of you, is what are your Benefits under Delta? How did your management tell you that they were negotiated? And what benefits do you get through your other ASA's, and do they overlap?

Changes to are current travel benefits include:

-No more epass parent travel benefits though the company travel network. Only an expensive and inconvenient ZED High, paper ticket sytem that requires 3-5 business days to process.

-No more buddy passes.

-No more Registered Travel Companions.

-No more free travel for Domestic Partners.

-No more travel benefits for part time employees.

-No more than 3 international travel days per year.

Pinnacle employees have launched a massive communication campaign to let management know that these new benefits are unnacceptable. Pinnacle management has responded that they will be going back to Delta to try and appeal for better benefits, however the Pinnacle Employees are less than trusting of this.

Please give me anything you have on your benefits under Delta.

Welcome to the way Delta (formerly known as NWA) plays ball.. We are simply the first to see what a bunch of turds now run this company. DAL's employees will be getting screwed as well-many just have not figured it out yet....

-Welcome to Steenland's little corner of hell!

It's time to form a DCI group that keeps ALPA, mainline pilots, and DAL managment in check....A unified DCI group with all the DCI carriers could make some changes....Mainline shouldn't get a better deal on us than we get on them...

You and the girls already tried that. It failed miserably, much like your career aspirations!

That will be you weeping when your flight home gets canceled because one of the DCI crew had to call in commuter clause because they couldn't make it in for their trip.

This is going to effect everyone, mainline as well as DCI ~ Butt Nut.

I haven't been "putting out?" Oh please Joe, you know I only have eyes for you and your RJ.....? As far as the travel beenies go, you only get what you negotiate. Delta owns the seats. Just remember though, you always have a seat up front if you need it (as long as a DL mainliner isn't on it....).

Bye Bye---General Lee

Are you saying the DCI pilots should NOT have the same non-rev bennies as DAL pilots? I request you make your views clear... I am hoping that this is not what it appears.

Sure I do (you should have the same), but you need to negotiate that with Delta. I don't make up the rules. To them you are contract feed, and you need to negotiate it. All we can offer as pilots is the jumpseat. And, as you saw, I did say "come aboard!!" Don't get your panties up in a wad at us. NEGOTIATE.


Bye Bye--General Lee

Hey D-Bag....Get off this thread. The only thing you're proving is the fact that you have no life what-so-ever. Some of us are actually trying to conduct something productive on behalf of our fellow employees here.
