No, only since the B727s went away years ago.

What is SWA's "equipment lock" language? What's VA's current lock language?
Virgin doesnt have a contract...

You don't ditch contract language just for the VX reason. If you acquire a carrier with a different aircraft type you don't have to spend negotiating capital to reinstitute it.

Yes they do. The grey book became binding as a contract when the vote to bring ALPA on property passed, according to the ALPA folks.

There's a huge difference between a negotiated CBA and maintaining status quo during negotiations.

It is still a contract, it is moot anyway but just because it isn't a CBA doesn't mean it isn't a contract.

True, but that wasn't the comment I addressed.

It's a suggestions book. That's why you have no recourse when they say the medicals are due at noon when your suggestions book says 5pm. No, it's not a contract like a CBA. And that is separate from maintaining status quo after a merger announcement.
