Attention


I predict: Future call sign for United will be Citrus.
Citrus will save United. Tilton will no longer be CEO.
Without the merger United would be toast.

Seniority merger will be like the Nic award. Same formula. All United and Airtran furloughees to be stapled based on their DOH. All active pilots will be ahead of pilots on furlough. No fences and protections. Slotting will be the name of the game.

I predict Delta guys will come up with even gayer uniforms and take pay cuts. They will ponder forming a union. Song will be ressurrected. And Gen Lee will finally marry 737 Pylt at townhall in San Francisco.

Funny that you know so much about being gay and marrying in San Francisco. Your parents must be blushing with pride.

I'm sure your parent's don't exactly beam with pride when you go strolling around in your Russian Sub Commander outfit.

That would staple the first 5000 United pilots on the top of the list, since UAL has approximately 65% of it's pilot positions on the 757 or larger gauge aircraft, then the bottom 2,500 UAL pilots would be slotted with the 1500 pilots on the AAI list. With no bump and no flush.

So a senior 73/Bus driver would still be a senior 73/bus driver and a junior 73/bus driver would still be a junior 73/bus driver? Oh, the humanity.
Which one of those companies is in bankruptcy today? That would need to be the case to apply Nic, and when the "merger" was consumated the board of AAI would need to end up getting 50% more seats on the board of the new company than UAUA.
The phrase that pays has always been, "Seniority is everything," not longevity.
MCDU, you list AB320 as aircraft flown. What type of bird is that?
