It is a good start.


Economic realities generally mean that the max pay numbers (based on monthly guarantee) are a little low. At least here at K4, if you are breathing, you get a trip. Much of the more greedy folk are pushing 1200+ pay hours per year.


And, other than the 767 guys (sux to be one of you), we are generally over catered on all flights.


The whole no involuntary assignment thing is golden. Been that way long before there even was a contract. Tradition that became statutory.

Your math is wrong for K4. 286.28x64x12 = $219,863.04

Atlas isn't home based. Current bases JFK, MIA, HSV, CVG, ORD, LAX, ONT and ANC so all trips and pay start and end in those bases. The company gets you to and from the plane but that doesn't occur as part of a pilot's trip, it happens on time off. It is seen as a benefit to the pilot so the value of the ticket can be added to your taxable income. Atlas calls it "Gateway Basing."

Along with lowest pay rates, lowest guarantee, lowest DH pay and tied for lowest company retirement contributions.

You have multiple errors on FedEx, UPS and Omni. With the errors is misleading!

Be more specific. Otherwise I would have to disregard you as a management/Ford&Harrison troll.
