An all B fund would be a significant concession for many, many reasons, and that’s why the union wouldn’t consider it, even for new hires

Unfortunately, they are considering another version of a “defined contribution” plan - that’s precisely what a Variable Benefit Plan is from the company’s perspective

After making their annual contributions, the market risk is on the pilots

Given the current market highs, this would be both a strategic and tactical mistake for our pilot group
