OMG, I just heard United is buying CAL and merging lists by DOH. Keeping United name too.

Also ExpressJet will finally be getting our flying back that CAL gave to Colgan. Finally!!!

And yes I did stay at a holiday inn express last night. LOL

nope, apparently it was leaked from the United MEC meeting and verified. Its all over calforums. United wanted a staple but got DOH for bottom pilots.

Are you confusing USAir / America West with United?

LOL. Your credibility could be improved quite a bit if you actually read the ALPA merger policy prior to trolling.

You also forgot to mention that XJT will be ditched as part of the transaction and all UAL/CAL express flying will be provided by Skywest.

IMHO, the new Delta should have been NWA. Northwest is a little older than Delta and NW definitely has name dominance in Asia.....where Delta wanted to be more than NWA wanted western Europe. Anyway, it's all moot now.

I think if a merger goes down it'll say United on all the planes. They don't have the best reputation, but they have the best exposure and recognition. Reputation can be repaired. If a merger goes down, DOH will not be an option at all. I can understand relative seniority and maybe something with career expectations thrown in, but DOH is a joke. I say go straight to arbitration. We'll see who prevails...

Um, XJT getting ditched?? I don't think so. Your post is so ridiculous it's not even funny. I guess you didn't hear that ExpressJet is about to get a huge United contract.

Now if we could just get CAL out of the picture..... LOL

What he proposes is a hundred times more fair than what a UAL pilot would have for CAL pilots if the tables were turned. What were you going to do to America West? How about USAir? What did you actually do to Frontier (#1)???

Go see for yourself. I try to stay off of calforums. My impression of that website is a bunch of little weenies with little weenies crying about how small their weenies are. LOL LOL LOL

UAL couldn't buy a dinner and a movie, how are they going to buy an entire airline? That place burns money faster than a scab running across a picket line in '83.
