Thumbs up No F/O Landings Until T/A?

The best way to support the union is for Captains not to let the F/O fly. The company will have to use the very scarce SIM time to keep the airplanes flying. The other advantage to this tact is that we have numerous F/Os that will make public the names of any Captains that have given them landings.

This exact tactic was used by UAL (I think) and it was very successful.

Exclamation Just not workable

You know it might be stupid, but there is a Machiavellian brilliance's to this scheme. It would create chaos for the company, morale would plummet, and the training department would be turned upside down. The problem is the union can't suggest it and it would take a grassroots effort (greater) than any we've seen, to be affective..........
Having thought this through...... yea its stupid.

I wish you guys would stop using the "Quote" button when responding to this fool. Now I still have to read his stupid posts. There is no way George believes this, and once again is trying to be the *ss that he is on these boards.

Actually I think George figured out how to get the training guys from flying extra. They'll have to be in the sim to get the F/O landings. Of course, they'll be drafted for those sims.

With some of the Captains I've flown with lately THEY need the landings more than I do!

Some captain sends me to the sim for currency, I'm going to spit in his catering.

It's a PC, you know.... (at least it was last summer).
