The only one I had ever known of was the ALPA list but that seems to be all major guys. Now I hear this "Freedom A" list and that's a new one on me too.
Long story short, Freedom was Mesa's version of GoJet before GJ existed. However, Freedom was eventually brought into the Mesa fold a la CHQ/S5. Those who worked for Freedom before it was unionized and made part of the Mesa seniority list are known as the "A-listers," and are considered to be at the level of current GoJet pilots.
A lot of former MAGers have a copy of the A-list, and are more than happy to deny anybody from that list.
