700 AT capts will hit 65 In ten years?
The AT retirement list was posted on here last week or the week before. IF you add up the year and number of retirements (I assume they are Capts) then you come up with just under 700 age 65 retirements on the AT side of the house during the next 10 years.

Wow did not know that. So what year is that 2021? So 200 hundred Capts left after that?

That is a much different list than the one that was posted on another thread. Since I am not a AT guy I don't really know which is correct, but this list has much lower numbers

There's about that many on the SOUTHWEST side of the house, but not at AT.

Hell, we only have about 850 TOTAL CAPTAINS. We're not retiring 80% of our CA's in 9 years. About half our CA's are under 50, 1/4 of them are under 45.

Ok, thanks for the info.

Sifting through this deal must be complicated as the 30 month requirement after the single operating certificate for the AAI group. How much will be lost in the next few years as the b717 will be separate till 2014, and all additions to the b717 fleet will staff as captains from existing b737 AAI captains. Only the junior b737 pilots will be sorted through the SWA system. Not much lost and SWA CBA upon entering Dallas for SWA procedures. For SWA dudes it is mainly business as usually with the thought of the AAI pilots entering the system. I have gone up and down on this deal as much as everyone. I think this is it, vote and accept it, rejection only does more business for heart burn companies.

If I was an AirTran guy I'd vote yes! If a SWA guy, I'd vote no way Jose!

If I was an AAI guy, I'd vote no. An arbitrated decision would be better for the AAI guys even if its a crapshoot.
There are many variables and moving chess pieces. Unfortunately it is not as cut and dry as you continue to elude to.

This decision must be weighed based on it's merits, potential outcomes and items loss. It is not an easy decision for either group. Many of us have friends and family at the other carriers.

Please respect the process.

If I was told correctly then the quickest way to attempt to get things fixed while at the same time avoiding the arbitrator is for a quick rejection and not send it out for a vote.

Then they try one last time to fix things.

Just showing off my new avatar.

BTW... It includes every AAI pilot with this 1 for every 6 insertion average. It applies more so for our junior captains and senior FOs.

That does not make any sense and it wasn't funny the first two times you posted it.
