Default downsizing CA bases?

Will Alaska do it?

Will other airlines follow?

Or just stop serving California.

Lots of ways to work around this. The CA legislature has issue at least carve-out on this already, for security guards so they can eat lunch on the premises and still be "on call" in the event of an alarm. FA's are similar. Pilots are a little harder, because while an FA can be relieved of all except emergency duty, the PM needs to always monitor. But sanity has to prevail, if not in SMF then Congress can fix it... federal law can simply specify that state labor law doesn't apply to while crew operating a flight.

(Reuters) - JetBlue Airways Corp will pay $3.6 million to more than 500 flight attendants to settle a longrunning lawsuit accusing the airline of violating California law by failing to pay the workers when they were forced to skip breaks.

Lawyers for the plaintiffs in the 2015 proposed class action filed a proposed settlement in San Francisco federal court on Friday. JetBlue has denied wrongdoing.

The settlement includes up to $900,000 in attorneys' fees.
