Okay, I'm going to ask this a different way because really what I am fishing for here is "the plan" for Delta mainline pilots when it comes to a strike of a DCI.
Say ASA went on strike last night at midnight against Skywest. Tonight you have an ATL-PHF run in an MD88, 6 of the 8 flights between ATL-PHF were ASA, the second to last is the 88 and the last is Pinnacle.
The passengers that would've been on that ASA flight are now on your originally scheduled flight. Are you flying struck work? With mainline and multiple DCI's sometimes sharing the same route, exactly how will a DCI strike be handled by DALPA? Because correct me if I'm wrong you can't do a solidarity strike like they do in Europe.
I'm curious because its a practical question as to what will be defined as struck work considering the spaghetti like mixing of routes. Would we refuse all ATL-PHF runs for instance? Would we do the ATL-PHF run and say, we're not replacing them as this was originally scheduled? What if DAL announces a second 88 is added to ATL-PHF, then what?
I know this MEC will be proactive about such issues and surely there would be a plan, I'm just wondering if it is out in the open now?
