Word going around is more than a handful of excessed crewmembers may be able to hold another seat within 6 months of checking out. Many are scheduled for training 2014.

I don't think they wanted to staff a rapidly growing airplane with folks who could leave shortly after IOE. Training is already tough to manage as a fleet comes online without worrying about it being a revolving door.


I just don't see a workable grievance. Everyone had a shot at bidding the 767, even after the excess boondogle. No one's seniority was abrogated. The company picked whatever number they wanted for excess. They could have picked a higher or lower number. We have no staffing model so it's entirely up to management.

76 Training letter is up. All the 75 guys get blessed in Sep in what is being called a lateral move. Everyone else is trained 1 or 2 at a time. A whole lot of people to fly no airplanes. Remember it has to be a SIBA to fly the round dials (of course they could just put a SIBA announcement out for 35 in each seat and catch everyone one way or the other). The 2 bid packs should be interesting.

Just to be accurate, it is an SBA not an SIBA. Don't want to confuse anyone.
