After negotiating with my other anonymous brothers we have brokered a deal on FI.

#1 F9 pilot becomes #1 SWA FO with 10:1 integration. That would put about 400 F9 on the bottom.

All SWA FO's get an immediate bump in seniority and benefit by having at least 400 people behind them tomorrow.

F9 benefit by having a job and not being stapled.

Deal?

Why don't you let an arbitrator handle this?

Now thats funny , dont you think he was talking tongue and cheek and knows he cant make the decision. I am glad he did not tell you it Christmas. :)

Side bar: I do think Gup is onto something. Why not get a cross section of F9 guys (say 10) send them to Dallas and work it out. I for one would agree with what the outcome was. JMO

Sounds great if you're a SWA Capt. Why should a SWA FO have to sacrafice seniority, but a SWA CA be exempt?

You won't be sacrificing seniority - you'd be gaining it....... and you'd have 400 shock absorbers.

I am a captain so I might be delusional.

So are the rest of you arrogant jackholes. Sheesh. I hope Republic does get F9 and then they keep your DEN profits way down. And, maybe it is safer to keep INTL routes away from you guys, like your management wants anyway.

Yes you are.

"Bro, I'm a Captain at Southwest and have been for a couple of years. I am senior, by DOH, to about 60-70% of the F9 pilots.

Integration will not hurt me and it might even help me but I am not willing to sacrifice ONE SINGLE Southwest pilot in the process. The current SWA pilots, applied, interviewed, got hired and earned their seniority. The FAPA pilots will inherit theirs.

I'm not being closed minded about this. I'm just trying to protect my brothers that are already on property.

Gup"

What's the relative DOH for the most junior F9 Capt vs the most senior WN F/O?

Yeah, I remember when two of your dudes got naked in flight and freaked out a FA. I'm guessing they must have been Oakland based; you know, close to San Francisco.........
