During the application, I thought there was a place to review before it was submitted but I did not see this option. Are you able to go back in and take a look after the application is submitted?

July classes not getting hotels unless something changes before then. Still a rumor.

I don't believe so.

Hey Joe, I'm Virgin and your contract sucks.

Blaming your junk contract on an upstart is wrong. Blame your MEC, or your fellow pilots who voted for it. Don't get me wrong, VX is nothing to write home about and is very bare bones, but your contract is worse than regionals. Acknowledging that will help us all fight for something better.

I don't think a VX pilot (that is, contractless and amongst the lowest paid majors) should be calling out the AS contract as being on par with regionals. And to be fair, contract 2013 was signed at a time when legacy contracts sucked. Here are Delta rates in 2013:

In any case, there's no denying that 2017 market rates and averages are way up which reflect the strong economy, low oil prices, and robust demand for travel. Attacking each other's contracts or weaknesses doesn't serve a good purpose in a time we should be unified.

I don't think he was, I think he was defending himself after Joe implied that VX guys were bottom feeders. At any rate if you don't think a VX guy should then I'll do it for him: our contract sucks.

Well I wonder when phone calls will start going out for those of us that applied recently?
