Well, tomorrow is D-Day. 5pm Central. I'm still thinkin 'no'
If it stands for "Deadline Day" then yes, i guess. But no one will have to mentaly make a decision of GOD and country tomorrow, no one will die tomorrow, no one will be faced with the realization of war tomorrow. Don't belittle D-Day with our measly deadline.

Stands for "Deal Day". Mum's the word lately so who knows.

Well then we need to storm the beach.

You wish! Pinnacle just announced 200% pay for open time pickups, and in the 3 hrs I was in the crewroom today, nearly every FO and CA gloated at the extra pay and sent off requests for pickups. It's pretty obvious this group has no unity and will bend over backwards to help the company. There will be no JCBA today, and who knows how long TA2 will take.

They just need to stop putting out so called "deadlines" and just do whatever it takes to get this thing done right. Every time that a date has been posted for the JCBA to be finished its always missed, and that pisses pilots off. It pisses me off that CJC ALPA keeps telling us that the "deadline" will most likely be met and that "things are looking good" Give me a break. Just stop putting out deadlines. This contract is not going to be done anytime soon so the less we see specific dates for it to be done the better. After just reading the latest CJC Fastread it looks like we have a LOT of work left to do. Also, just got a crewtrac message saying our Usair November performance was terrific. Keep up the good work!!! quick turn single engine taxi flyin 250 yaaaayyy!!!

Enough
As you may recall, today was the extended deadline set to complete Pilot
contract negotiations. Significant progress has been made, so we have asked
and ALPA has agreed to stay at the table to attempt to complete​
negotiations. We will keep you updated on our progress.

I think a good topic of discussion should be the better theme song: One Day at a Time or The Fall Guy. Pat Harrington is the best hair dryer guy but the fall guy theme song kicked ass.

Delayed again for another week. I guess all the XJ guys who are "in the know" must be scratching their heads?

Lots of progress has been made. Yada yada. Keep believing this crap until the holidays are over, and then prepare for all hell to break lose when they stop playing ball and transferring airplanes.

Didn't surprise me one bit. The only reason I scratch my head is why were not together on this.... This is the part that benefits both of us. SLI discussions should be fun (*sarcasm*).

I've talked to my reps and I've talked with our negotiators. These are my friends... I've flown with them in both seats on 3 different airplanes, I've gotten drunk with them, I've upgraded with them, I've downgraded with them, they have never lied to me, and have no reason to. They have all told me, the negotiations are going well, and that it has been eye opening to both 9E negotiators and mgmt. in how XJ negotiators and our lawyer approach contract items. The timeline was tight (45 days does not equal 45 days at the table), and somewhat unrealistic. But they are optimistic that it will be done by the 2nd.

So, are they optimistic about next week too?

Were you around when XJ gave pinnacle pilots 1:3 years during that SLI?

Yes, they are optimistic it will be done...soon. But they are DETERMINED to do it correctly. That is more important do me than a couple of days.

Might want to talk to one of those individuals, there are plenty still around. It was NOT an SLI. If it were we wouldn't be doing this now, would we?
