What is going on right now with the union integration? When are you guys going to be on the master seniority list of the 747?

Meeting with the arbitrator is coming up within 30 days I believe. Hurricane Katrina delayed the meeting.

Will know soon.........

Hurricane Katrina had absolutely nothing to do with the delaying of the arbitration.. lets not go there!
Anyway, Everything will be decided on by mid October. Nice to see that people are being so professional about all this ("get out the stapler").

ORD Ops

Get a clue operating out of ORD. ORD Tower: Shuttlecraft 1234 are you in the turn to 090?...... SC:duh.......yep were turning or something. ORD Tower: Are you in a half bank turn, or do you have the autopilot on? SC: uhhh.........no were turning to 090. WHEN THE TOWER SAYS TO TURN DO IT, but not at 1000 agl.
Oh well it's good intertainment on ORD gnd and tower with the nubies.LOL

If it's ORD it's "New New Shuttle", as in 170 drivers who've never flown Saabs at Shuttle (those are "New Shuttle" pilots, the ones who never flew the Dash at Shuttle; "Old Shuttle" are the ones who flew the Dash).

This thread is about the New Shuttle people and Old Shuttle people only... Let's keep it straight. :)

Wow, Sure is nice to finally be getting some name recognition in this screwed up industry. For the last 7 years its been "Shuttle who?!?!" and now people actually know who we are, or is it just because they want to fly shiny new jets, "SJS" as someone put it.

Don't worry if you are SA or CHQ, talk to your MEC and they will fill you in on the latest LOA's and arbitration info. If you are an outsider looking in for a job, be assured that Rep/SA/Chq will continue to hire many pilots in the coming years no mater what the outcome of arbitration is. Otherwise, stay tuned for an arbitrator judge's ruling soon. It will be soooo nice to have this all over with and be able to get on with things!

ORD APPROACH: "Shuttle, 210 knots to DEANA contact tower there, g'day!"
SHUTTLE: "Sorry sir, we can only give you about 140knots till DEANA, our opspecs require us to be fully configured prior to crossing the marker."
APPROACH: "uh... ok.... never heard that one. Hey shuttle, you got a pen? <long pause> Come on Shuttle, its an easy question... DO YOU HAVE A PEN?"
SHUTTLE: "uh... yes".
APPROACH: "Good, right this number down and call me when you get on the ground!"



ROTFLMAO!

Looks like the Saab Shuttle folk are being trained into 170 without a decision on the senority. They are not even members of our local yet. I believe this isnt over yet, stay tuned.

Just wait 'til the arbitration is complete... at that point everyone can stop fixating on the integration and get back to disliking each other for more concrete reasons. :D

The take this number thing is great, very funny. Last night flying out of the New York area...

New York Departure: "Comair XXXX what are you doing?"
Comair XXXX: "Ohhhh...we are starting the turn to XYZ"
New York Departure: "You were instructed to fly heading XXX, verify altitude"
Comair: "We are at X,000"
New York Departure: "Decend and maintain X,000 and take down this number"

Super funny...oh and the American MD-80 that turned the wrong way at LGA and had three airplanes stuck facing each other for 45 mins.

But I'm sure the Shuttle 170 guys, were more wrong that the AA crew and the Comair crew.

Im going through the shuttle class now and I met 3 former saab drivers and they are newhires at republic. last of the remaining chq 170 guys started shuttle transition training today. No saab drivers in that class or mine.

Where are the former saab pilots being trained on the 170 if this is happening cause they aint in st.ouis?
