Rough estimate is 300 million.
It is a good win for the pilot group as it allowed joinder however it took 3 years to prove. Going forward it provides a clear example of how any further litigation would proceed and indicates how management may address any future seniority issues when a merger occurs.
Without turning this into a bashing thread the decision speaks to the arrogance of management. This issue was brought to the attention of every level of management and at each level the pilots were, essentially, laughed out the door.
