FDX We have a winner!
 
http://www.airlinepilotforums.com/im...cons/icon1.gif We have a winner!
"I think we should start pressing our finger on the biometric exactly one hour (2 in ANC) prior to departure, then call for your ride and see what happens. That's what we are required to do right? No more, no less."

We are dropping the ball on this one. We should all be checking in AT SHOWTIME in AOC, then, per the FOM, check required FCIF's before each duty period, next stop is Corp Travel to get the ticket, then proceed to the terminal bus(it just left? I guess I'll catch the next one in 20 minutes.). Once at the terminal, get in line to check your bag to destination. Now through security....etc. Nothing out of bounds, just following the rules.


4a2b or not 4a2b, that is the question. WE are the answer.

We still can't keep guys from flying DP's, ANC trip 18, 26 Feb 10. How are we going to get guys to go to ops to check in?

We all need to walk around with our hats on with one exception. We should tape a telescoping antennae on the side, extend it as far as it will go and then hang a small mirror at the end. The idea being that we can see ourselves as we walk around at work. Maybe then we will realize that we are as much the problem as the company we point the finger at.

True, but he is exactly right. Concerning this issue we are only required to do what is in the contract. If NW or some other ALPA carriers wanted to make a collective point, there would be quite a bit more "unity" within the crew force. History validates that point. Unfortunately, "we" will probably never get anywhere as unified as we should. Pretty sad. Thank goodness we work for a stable company with a decent contract....comparatively speaking that is. Cant wait till the next round of negotiations! :rolleyes:

Just pointing out the futility of doing anything when we have these independent contractors floating around flying disputed pairings repeatedly. And people still eat with them.

Nothing will change for YEARS around Memphis until these Non- Members / Independent Contractors / aka SCABS retire or get fired. They will continue to jump at the opportunity for a quick buck at our expense.

It stinks on the -11 when you're stuck with one of these cheapskate - scabs, but if I'm lucky there's an rfo to drink with.

Check in on-time, not a minute earlier, that's what I'm paid to do. You're a sucker if you check in early as management is laughing at you!

I am with you concerning the futility! But, individually, we should be able to look at our self in the mirror; whatever choice we make. Then again, that would require some sort of conscience and an understanding of the consequences of "our" actions!

And I should add that regardless of the futility, ya gotta stick with your beliefs and gut feelings. That way you can be sure that you arent part of, or contributing to the problem.

Better yet, let's ALL grow mustaches! It worked for DW's regime, it can work for us!
