How does alcohol make you smarter? Better would be to lower the boom by insisting change.

I do think that eventually K4 would've had to have been released and after 5 years of stalling it was probably getting close to that and K4's Management knew it. I'd say that was a more likely reason why they got their contract than anything...

FYI... On January 1st Management has no scheduled negotiating sessions on our Amendable Contract...

I've been reading the forum quite a bit and had a couple questions I was hoping someone could answer.

First, I saw something a several pages back about not being able to fill all the class spots. Can anyone elaborate on this?

Secondly, I was curious how quickly a new hire could hold IAH?

Thanks!

Not sure about the class info.

IAH is our most senior base. Junior pilot has been here about 20 months and it quickly gets very senior as you go up the list so you'd sit near the bottom for a long time. If you're hired on the 76 you'd have a 3 year seat lock before you could bid IAH.

Read more than several pages - the issues here should be no secret. Get familiar so you don't blindly accept the Kool Aid served during the interview. Compare our pay to K4, Allegiant and the proposed pay at Omni. There's a reason we can't fill class slots, but it's better for you to arrive at that conclusion yourself.

I can almost hold 747 Captain and I'm not able to hold top half of IAH FOs... I'd have worked Christmas, Thanksgiving and I wouldn't be able to hold any of the 30 hour out and backs...

Just a note of correction: Kalitta's new rates as a topped out 767 Captain are now $71 per hour HIGHER than Atlas. By the DOS+3 for Kalitta, a Kalitta 767 Captain will make $110/hr more. Wow. Atlas is digging its own grave if it doesn't rectify this quickly. 2017 will yield massive pilot losses for Atlas. Hiring 4-500, and will be lucky to grow our list from it's current number. Truth.

Yup... If I were at Atlas for less than 2 years I might leave for K4. Less than 1 year? it's a no brainer...

About 5 K4 brothers of mine switched to GIANT in the last 2 years, I wish them and you all well, may you get the kick butt contract you deserve.
