So the ideal candidate is a never divorced, second career'r for AK?

Any other qualifiers I could throw on the 'ole resume, and how do you list "never been divorced, therefore don't need extra money" on your app?

Struck a nerve there hey sack-itis? You clearly agree with BM and BT that we deserve less. Thanks for playing, go back to your pious hole.

Wow, just wow. And we wounded why we are in this **** pour situation we find ourselves in.
Jesus, if you like flying and being away from home so much why don't you just do it for free?
You almost do!

Once the SLI is finished, how long of an equipment lock will there be? Is there still language in AK's current CBA that addresses this? Thanks..

Too soon for this question. And why would AS's current CBA have wording on an equipment lock of an acquired/merged carrier? It's worth nothing that arbitrators for SLI decisions only put equipment locks on the biggest widebody to protect the highest paying flying for both sides, eg, Delta 777 and NWA 747 had a 5-yr fence.

I thought I was pretty clear that I wasn't talking about arbitration or the SLI.... I'm talking about transitioning to a different aircraft in order to get a base that would otherwise be unavailable. I did some research and AKs current cba has 2 years for equipment lock.

Seems weird that there is an equipment lock clause in a contract for an airline that operates only one type of equipment.

What is SWA's "equipment lock" language? What's VA's current lock language?

That language is from the days when Alaska operated 727, 737 and MD-80 aircraft. The only way you could get out of the lock was to be displaced or to upgrade.

You seem to be the expert on SWA why don't you tell us; I bet there is language in your contract that covers it. Locks/freezes are pretty standard contract language these days. Why wouldn't you include language on new aircraft/equipment?

Has AS always operated one aircraft type?
