Iíve been looking, up so far have been unsuccessful. How are reserves paid when they fly Group III and Group IV aircraft (757,767)? Is it split 50/50? Or something else? Thanks in advance.

There is no such thing as a Group3+ Group 4 pilot at AA. The 757/767 are both Gr3. The 320/321 group 2. Group 4 would be 330/777/787.

Thanks...knew I was missing something...(group 4 shows 767-400....didnít read into deep enough..saw 767 and my small brain stopped reading)

There is a movement to try and categorize the A321 as Group 3 in our next contract. I have no idea how they would work that out with reserve guarantee for A320/321 pilots. Maybe just pay you the extra for the legs you actually fly the larger aircraft.

United uses a "blended" rate for reserve guarantee, etc, then an override when you fly the higher rate.

At Delta you get the higher 321 rate for reserve guarantee unless you fly a 320 trip then you get paid those hours at the lower 320 rate.

This is not a boast but just to let Laker know that this issue has been addressed by ALPA in the contracts since the 321 is supposedly a 757 replacement.

apc airline profile shows the DL 321/737-9 paying $2 more than the other 320/737-8 and $10 less than the 757.
