He wasnít here last year.

So suck it up for a couple years. The 350 went to 11,500. So anyone in the company right now who is 11,500 and higher can no longer complain about NB trips, right?

I know the perfect captain you need to fly with. Youíll get along with him great. Just hope you like JAX turnsÖ

I hope you realize that ignoring the suck gets more exhausting the longer you do it. This place isnít all rainbows and cupcakes. I wouldnít trade it for a regional, but I hope you learn soon that defending the negatives here is a fools errand. Positivity is a good thing but save it for things you control, cuz Ed and his sleepless cronies will sap you of everything you have and then tell you to smile more.

Reserve ATL 350 flying is not "real" Widebody flying. It'll be years before they can hold a line!

So if someone didnít bid for WB, then they canít complain about garbage NB trips? What sense does that make?

Not everyone wants to fly WB. Not everyone wants to change bases and commute. Not everyone CAN change categories.

Maybe you think youíre being helpful, but you just sound like an incredible tool.

Page 10 of 11 on the wide report has line holders, without carry in trips or pre month credit for Apr, May, Jun. Lots of senior bidders prefer reserve. 85-90% has been the typical cutoff on 330/778/350 for the last 5+ years.

I agree with your opinion and according to FMF have the right to complain because I bid WB for QOL. Lots of us are “stuck” in a WB right seat for QOL because the NB trips are so bad. On the plus side junior guys like Trip get to be Captains much sooner.

I was waiting for you to chime in! I just like stirring the pot My whole point is I had a pilot in the van give me crap for wearing a company lanyard. Im just getting tired of it! Its not that bad here in my opinion and this is a good platform to release some built up steam under the radar!
