Well, I am a lifelong Viking Fan, so cheering for Favre is difficult, at best.

Love that skit by the way. "Like most men, I put my pants on one leg at a time. Then I take my pen15 out. And maybe take a picture of it." Classic.

Now, apparently, I've discovered you can't break up a string of 7 (or greater) days in the middle either. Anyone else run into this? Are these rules written down anywhere?
Yes, it's in the contract and broken down in the "Moving X days" document that ALPA puts out.

Well off to do my cd... procrastinating, while a lot of fun, means you get robo calls.

I know many with 4000-8000TT+ and half of that TPIC and *with* internal recs and still haven't gotten called from Delta.

So what's the story with the 2000TT wonder hires?
ShyGuy check your PMs. If you are getting that "2000 hour wonder pilot" idea from that flightinfo thread, it is a made up number that someone put up there to make it sound more drastic than it really was.

We are also not allowed to move days that will create a block of less than 72 hours, but PBS will build you a single day of reserve or a block of two. If we are not allowed to do it, then PBS should not be allowed to do it. The only restriction I can see that would make sense is moving days to create a single day of reserve should not be allowed, other than that we should be able to do whatever the coverage will allow.

We also need more PCS runs!!! I just hung out with a CAL guy and he was trading trips on his phone all the time. Trips pop up in open time, they get a text telling them a trip is in open time that meets their parameters, they log on and trade the trip. No waiting around for a dang PCS run. Our system has got to be the worst system of all airlines out there!

The only way to protect the career progression of the Delta pilots would be career long fences, and I really don't see that happening.
Yup, that is kinda how I see it. There will be a good portion of AK pilots that will be glad to bid off the 737 in SEA to the 330/76ER. Imagine a whole career on one flight deck. Gives me the shivers.

You might be on to something there. If we put up 20 year fences we will only create animosity and never build up the Delta brotherhood. We align pay to longevity and it will certainly make me less angry when I'm flying a 737 out of SEA instead of the 76ER.
