An airline is more than its pilots.
And a car without an "engine" is just a bunch of parts.

An engine without a car is a generator.

I agree. This Wisconsin announcement is a BIG sign that L-XJT will keep shrinking..

Who saved 5,000 pilots? Parker and Kirby? I'm assuming you're talking about USAirways and American West merger? If so you might want to read up on Bruce Lakefield and the merger (reverse takeover). I do agree with the "hosed by an arbitrator" part.

Problem today is that what's good for one group is usually bad for another. I wouldn't say AW is better than anyone else. We all have the same desires when it comes to job stability and progression

What's that suppose to mean. I never spit on another bother's airline. I'm at mesa we have issues at our respective regionals. But so do you and anyone at ANY airline.

Is it not hypocritical to be complaining about another airline setting up a CPP that doesn't actually even set aside guaranteed spots for the people it is being offered to?


Not what I was getting at at all. Just saying that those who aren't at a regional with a flow/hiring agreement are going to be left holding the bag when all of the new hire slots are spoken for.

Furthermore, this just puts more pressure on regionals like Mesa and Republic to give their pilots a more viable path to the majors.

Aal is going to have more jobs available than the flow can provide.. scratch that.. they will have more jobs than all of the WOs have together...

Follow, no flow, your going to be just fine!
