I don't know where the breakeven point is, but it's cheaper to use RSA and VDA a certain amount than to have higher staffing. JetBlue will always staff to a level that RSAs and VDAs are used a certain amount.

Chances are, the usage would have to be much higher than we think to reach parity. JetBlue is a business, not a jobs program. They aren't trying to create more positions. They are trying to run the airline as inexpensively as they can.

They let too many go over to the Airbus the last system bid. 190-FO BOS has almost 0 reserves tomorrow. That's not typical for mid-September.

I think thatís a contributing factor to why theyíre having issues figuring out this current system bid. Iím sure that overall trend is to continue to move out of the 190. 1- Being the money 2- The 220 is still 2 years away.

Are they having issues? They have 7 days to post the results, and I've never seen anything post over a weekend ever. I'm sure they are being cautious to prevent swamping the training department with A320 transitions.

Ya, I think the bid typically closes on Wednesday, results on Monday.

HA! They're very cautious Southy. You are such a suck a$$. Like when they announced the Dec System Bid and then when it looked like a CBA was going to be announced they pulled it back and changed all the numbers. Please, there is zero transparency in the entire process and the pilots have been essentially locked out of the scheduling and planning since we formed as a collective group. So suck on that.

You said they were having issues. I asked if they are actually having issues because there's no evidence that they are, other than not posting the results over a weekend, which they never seem to do. Then you post this rediculous post. You shouldn't let your emotions get the better of you buddy. Poor guy is losing it...
