I think most senior pilots understand. i came from a regional more than 10 years ago. it was the same back then. the junior guys were in the majority as we had just gone through a big hiring thini 1999-2002. but nothing changed unless you bid aacs and made captain from that.

but folks ALPA says there IS NO PILOT SHORTAGE. so ya,,,maybe ATPCLiff is right. They are all hiding somewhere.

The pilot hiding situation is changing rapidly....
Do you really believe that the decision to stay or go will pivot on if you are or aren't mad over someone junior to you making more money? Personally, I don't care what others make as long as I'm paid in accordance with the contract.

Ok, so I don't get it, but you have all the answers. So, you're ExCo for a day and the company wants to know what they have to do to improve retention, without breaking the bank and opening any section of the contract....What say you?

more efficient planning with an actual credit system would allow more days off and making the same amount of money...win win. That will give the biggest bang for the buck for the majority around here I believe. I love coming to work here, I love the flying....been doing this stuff for 15 years, love the flexibility, but I have never been gone from home this much every single month and still making less than I did at 14-15 days a month.

how does the company convince the customers to not continually change their schedules to all us to be more efficient?

a 15 day line provides plenty of flexibility to change schedules...plenty.

I stand corrected. I misread "The Plan". I thought I read something about having to complete a full calendar year before becoming eligible. After reading it again, I see that it states you are eligible in the first month following your 1 year anniversary. Thanks for the info and correction.

If that's true then it will take no leverage, as it will cost the company nothing.

Sorry, I'm missing something. What solution are you proposing that costs the company nothing? To be honest, I have heard no solutions, just complaints.
