Raise the roof again. Another rumor. Hold on to your seats. It's going to be a wild ride. Seat locks expiring, 777, 737, contract negotiations......

Our pay is so terrible on the 737. It would be almost pointless for a 74 FO to upgrade on it if we ever got them. Besides a free type, of course. It's 75% of 74 pay for those not wanting to look it up ��.

Not to mention 2nd year FO pay actually goes down. Good luck keeping that seat filled...

For you young pups it may make sense (as it currently exists in our CBA) to take the left seat though...if you don't have too much PIC time (say less than a 1,000 that is required at DL or FDX?)...just sayin'!!

I don't think pay goes down, while it still isn't great, hourly pay actually stays the same until year 3. Section 32 para B1, last sentence...

I'd bid over to the left seat of the 737 so that I could get typed in the left seat and get some PIC time. There are a ton of young guys who lack the PIC time to make them competitive for the majors. Having PIC time in the C-17, the 737, and a 747 or 767 type would make that resume look pretty good. It'd be a little bit of a pay cut, but it'd be worth it.

They could make the 737 schedules more like the scheduled airlines to attract and keep the seats filled. 5on, 4off etc.

Ah, good point. And in year 3, you'd get a $0.45 pay raise.

Woo.

Hoo.

guys, come on.. do you really think Atlas would operate 737's? I don't see that happening; but, stranger things have happened. We would def have to git rid of our "Giant" call sign.

Yeah, just like most of us thought we'd be freight-dawgs forever and a day.

"Giant" could be changed to "mini-me" or some silly name...
