So how's the whoooolle Polar/Atlas, Atlas/Polar deal coming along? Have the groups been combined with a new CBA or are they still being run separately?

We have an arbitrated combined Seniority List but it can't take effect until we have a combined CBA.

All but 1 major section (Scope) and 2 subsections remain open...and both parties are presenting their arguments to an arbitrator this week.

As for when we can expect to have a TA'ed or Arbitrated combined CBA...who knows?

kalitta will take you. Usually ANC then to ORD, CVG, LAX, LCK. Schedule on the website.
N740, 741, 742, 743, 744, and soon 745 are BCF 400's nicer ride.

We can take you too.

Go to our main web page
Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings

Click on Atlas Air Inc 747 picture, left side, about half way down. Then.

About mid page on right side you will see contact us with multiple items. Select Jump Seat and Courier

You should be good to go from there.

Don't mean to de-rail the thread. But I guess I will anyway

Why is international off-line jumpseat allowed on Kalitta and Atlas, but not on FedEx and UPS?

Just curious.

It is a FedEx corporate policy. You would have to ask them.

CASS approved crew members can jump with us. The only problem jumping freight is that the logistics of actually getting to the plane can be more complicated. I can't tell you how to hook up with the crew because it varies so much from place to place.

There are certain TSA security directives that the ACMI carriers comply with to allow it. FedEx/UPS chooses to NOT comply with them.

Now cue the "what about the FedEx pilot that tried to crash into the building" crowd. Whatever, different time, different security (lack of) procedures in place.
