Default Is it just me....non rev travel CBT.

For the purple crowd...

Is anyone else not happy about having to take a test so that we can do non rev travel?

The pilots were not the cause of this. We know how to travel. Our dependents (in my opinion)know how to travel. And we are easily held accountable for our behavior, good or bad.

Another small power creep in my opinion...

This won't be an issue after we roll over on the coming 4a2b...

We don't. Previously discussed here. From the Personal Travel FAQs link that was posted:

Employees FedEx Corporation, FedEx Services, FedEx TechConnect and FedEx Express Air Operations (with the exception of those working in Flight)

Again, pilots don't have to take it, sky isn't falling. Read the FAQs

That train left the station long ago. We work for GOC, scheduling, jumpseats, outlying stations, etc. They don't work for us.

Yes, but if you read the FAQ you can't bash the current MEC or ALPA in general.

You fellows see an attack on ALPA and the MEC everywhere. Relax your side is going to get their tax increases on those evil rich people and make em pay their fair share.

Those black helos still circling your house?

Plenty to bash them about, but wasn't the point.

On a positive note, glad to find out it doesn't apply.(this week).

Who the heck wants to travel by air nowadays anyway, especially using non-rev passes?

A root canal sounds like more fun and has a much better chance of success. Like I tell my kids, if we can't drive there or take the train, the place does not exist.

Just curious, have you taken the train anywhere out of Memphis?
