Which is fine. I don't mind drinking Mai Thais instead of flying in a smelly cargo plane, but they leave me no incentive to make that 16 hour cincy to Incheon long-haul. I'm going do with my damndest to wiggle out of it. I'm going to do my least around here if it pays the same to do so. That's it and that's all.

Truth. The rig has its pros and cons.

I'm right now being paid to do nothing in SAN for four days.

Otoh, since CRT doesn't accrue during training (how in the BLUE **** did that get in a contract...) therefore it is Unpaid if you conflict bid...

Does Atlas carry ride-along mechanics like Kalitta Air does?

The answer is, like all things Atlas, "yes and no".

Charters to stations that do not have maintenance in place will carry a flight mechanic. Same with loadmasters.

Yes and no... Under the current contract I'd rather sit for 17 days since I know I get paid nothing for actually flying. To me a higher guarantee and more flight hours would mean we could haul more cargo with the same amount of pilots which would lead to more profit and higher wages. When I see the inefficiency in Atlas Scheduling I realize that there's all kinds of money out there to pay us. It would require a scheduling department that doesn't commercial me to from Dubai to Hong Kong to operate an airplane to Anchorage while commercialing someone else from Hong Kong to Dubai to operate to Hong Kong.

They don't have to figure how to run the company more efficiently to pay the crews more.

If they can pay the top 5 execs almost $60 million if the shareholders vote the Amazon deal through....then they can pay a HELL OF A LOT MORE TO THE PILOTS!

FUPM = F%CK U PAY ME!

Question:

I know the airline provides 'gateway' travel between your home and domicile but if your on a trip that terminates in your base. I.e. CVG are you provided a hotel or on your own for a hotel every night you spend there. With the DHL/Amazon stuff this could be a fair bit of time.

Apologies if this is a dumb question.

CO pays for all hotels regardless of location... Let the ranting about CVG hotels begin.. Ive only had the Hampton Inn Airport and the Westin booked for me...
