Like you said, to each their own.
When one upgrades from do they lateral over to the CA payscale at the same years longevity (i.e. 747 FO@ 5 to 767 CA@5) or do they start out at the first year pay on the CA scale?

It's just like any other 121 carrier. 5 yr FO becomes 5 yr Capt pay scale wise.

All this talk of seat locks lifting or not is from language in the current CBA. Is it possible that we could get SOC and merge the seniority lists and fleets without having a new CBA?? I don't think so; the pilots and 1224 would never accept that, and we (1224) have to provide the merged list to move forward.

Point is, speculating about the ability to bid the 777 or back to the 747 after the merge is just that: speculation. There could be a whole new set of rules in the new CBA (and possibly fences).

Not to mention that said CBA is probably 3 years from being signed into effect. Many won't even be on the seniority list by then. Much can change before this drug out process will finally be finalized.

Default Jump sitting

Just a quick question for you guys. I was looking at hoping on a transoceanic jumpseat (HSV - LUX) and back. Typically how good is a space availability? My purpose for the flight is to get an idea of what a long haul flight looks like from the pilot perspective and to see if I would like that type of flying. Thanks.

I think that's an excellent idea to see what its all about. I was HSV based, now CVG, and I am sure the J/S is almost always available. If you are in CASS the J/S is not a problem.

Come on in. Plenty of room on that flight. But chances are you'll have to go to STN then LUX. So it'll be about a 20 hour day! For just about the same pay as the crew get. You'll love it.

Let's put it this way, they will have a verrrry tough time staffing in the future.. Rumor is a flow through with a beech 1900 "airline".. Which is just the kind of experience this place needs more of. *sarcasm*
