Their contracts have to have a cancellation clause. And DL has been sued by DCI more than once (Mesa and SkyWest at the very least) and DL remains deeply in love with SkyWest and every time they pick up the phone with DL on the other end they are ready to copy outsourcing instructions.
I'm really not worried about our street cred with labor busting fake airline ACMI whipsaw providers. We sign contracts with cancellation clauses. We will abide by those clauses. Nothing more is owed beyond that.
No, I was thinking more like Boeing, Airbus, banks, rating agencies, and another entity. Because if we're hoping that we work for an airline that desn't honor its' contracts with everyone else
, we certainly can't imagine we
'll be immune.
You're a smart guy, judging from the majoriy of your posts, and I think you know there is no magic wand to make the 50-seaters go away, even though they're beer cans.
That's why we're all shiIIing ourselves, and hopping mad, that we're going to have to give some withing Section 1, to gain more. We all hoped for some miracle to make the 50-seaters go away, so we didn't expect to give up anything. And many of expected to take on a few RJ's anyway, and shift it out of 1 and into 3.
Now we're obviously just shiIIing ourselves because dreams don't come true, and because we're making a very expensive Scope purchase, and the "strictly payrates" guys are realizing they'll probably want to play along based on the TVM argument.
I stand by my original post. I've been observing this group in action for some time now, and I think the dynamics at play are as I described.
