Yeah because nobody ever gets drunk on an overnight.

I am not defending them, but lets not be completely ridiculous.

Instead of saying "Furloughed" under your name, why don't you just put GoJet FO? Then everyone will know exactly who something like the trash you just wrote came from.

Even though they are probably going to lose their jobs, it is hilarious that one of them was mooning traffic.

He is a check airman. When I was at TSA I had the privilege to fly with Jeff quite a bit. He's a good respectable guy and everyone at the company that I knew liked Jeff. Everyone makes mistakes.

And BURflyer if you really work for GoJet....your a scab. One I like to peel off my knee. If not...my apologies.

He does, but the only way anybody will feel any sympathy for him is keeping "furlough" in the name area.

Have fun hiding that ID and using those United Crew tags.

Why are GoJet pilots considered SCABs? Did they cross a picket line?

So why don't you put GOJet FO under your position so you're not a disgrace to the real waterskiiers that are furloughed.

Please, there's a whole bunch of F'ed TSA in GJ classes and up coming classes scheduled till DEC. Besides it's TSA's flying right???:rolleyes: It's mainline flying and this is the regionals. At least we're not contract workers used to furlough mainline Midwest pilots and force them out of their airplanes. Give me a break.

09-28-2008, 07:20 PM
So why don't you answer my question? There are other places hiring out there... you don't think it's wrong that GJ is hiring while your brothers at TSA are getting furloughed?

And before you try and throw RAH in there, our union is fighting the company to protect our CBA and actually working with the Midwest MEC.

In the mean time, enjoy working with one of the worst contract for Hulas' second-string.

Hahaha...oooo, whats that word... IRONY!

A TSAer calling a GoJetter a [email protected]!

How bout the fact that TSA is willingly violating Eagle's scope by doing the MIA flying. Its just as bad! Of course it is not the individual pilot's faults per se, but it is terrible that your MEC is accepting this flying. Their response to your company should have been "HELL NO! We will not do flying that violates another MEC's CBA."

That flying is potentially struck flying. Unfortunately, we have a no strike clause in our contract and unlike the company, we are actually abiding by it.

And who do you work for? And by that statement are you calling TSA pilots scabs? Do you not see the difference here?

You can't violate another regional airlines scope clause. It isn't an agreement between competing regionals.

And didn't the last TSA MEC VARS message say that the GoJet and TSA MECs are also working together, and the TSA MEC supports the current GoJet IBT Leaders?

I used to work for Trans States I think I know who GoJets are. I carry the sticker proudly on my chart case....the extra S stands for Scab.

And why is it whenever GoJet comes up you jump into the fray :confused:

I just think its irritating that it is always "Drunk pilots moon traffic" instead of "Drunk idiots moon traffic". Does that put us in the same league as sports and movie stars?

Yeah, it's a shame that this happened... Just goes to show ya that if you're not careful, all it takes is one slip up and you're done... Happens even to good guys like this.... (Why, oh why can't it be gojets pilots! The fun we would have with that!)

Same league, different pay, worse work rules.

Ok, sorry guys that this thread turned on us. We don't need to start GoJet bashing (in this thread). I just thought that it is important to note where the "Trans who?" he wrote was coming from. A bitter furloughee that went to GoJet. He's not a scab, but as soon as TSA strikes and that flying is transfered to GoJet, he will be. Just be patient guys!

On the Eagle note...you guys need to mix in a clue. You keep crying about us having your flying and your planes. Take a moment to think about how many guys you have on furlough. That hired help clause is the only thing holding mgmt back from furloughing half your staff. You don't want these planes back.

I think we all know why this one is being closed. Thread about drunken pilot antics on an overnight turns into a scope and go jet war.
