Question FDX - When would you ...

The Letter of Agreement for Introduction of Boeing 767F Aircraft says,

A B757 bid period package shall not contain B767 flight segments, unless authorized by the ALPA Scheduling Committee Chairman.


OK, so put yourself in the shoes of the ALPA Scheduling Committee Chairman.

When would YOU authorize the inclusion of a B767 flight segment in the B757 bid period package?

Ok so I am in his shoes now (hypothetically) and my answer is Never.

There is always going to be exceptional language in a contract to provide for unusual relief. I'm just glad we are the gatekeepers on this matter and not say the VP of flight operations or his designated representative.

Correct me if I am wrong but in the video it is mentioned, if a 757 pilot flies a trip with one leg that has a 767 then the whole trip is paid at widebody? Hence, why would you not include a 767 segment as often as possible?

Just pay the 57 wide-body, and be done.

FP ... you've spent too much time reading stuff like this. I wonder if they both have about the same chance of happening

I asked the Negotiating Committee in yesterday's Webcast,
"What criteria will the Scheduling Committee Chairman use to allow B-767 flying in the B-757 bid period package?"
The response was an explanation of who the Scheduling Committee Chairman is, what his job description is, and what his experience is.

No criteria was given, nor was there an example offered of when it might be considered, or why the clause exists.



Is our seniority now being treated like another Scheduling Soft Parameter?
