Younger CAs? The top guy is around 2800 seniority in the company. :/

Yes, and because of the lack of variety for a while. There are pilots out there who like flying the same routes and doing the same layovers all the time but I think most of us appreciate a good mix. I haven't seen a c10 bid packet yet but I'm assuming the trips will be pretty boring until they announce more routes.

Pays more than the 717 but, unlike the B717....and it's a big "but" (and I cannot lie...), no ATL base for the foreseeable future. They would have to wait a year to bid into the ATL domicile....not to mention Minny, DTW, LAX or SEA. Of course, at the pace the recent AEs have been posted, they will have to wait almost that long anyway.

Just got a CJO, but they didn’t give us any information as to the wait time for training.

Do they pass updates to people waiting in the pool? Any idea what the typical wait time is going forward? I’m starting a reserve gig and moving, but not really sure what timeline I should be using to avoid interfering with Delta training. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide. -Turd

Wrong - CR has what would normally be a very, very hard to do job, but is now basically an impossible job due to the schizophrenic nature of marketing. IOW all these last minute route/ship/model changes are impossible to keep up with in the best of times. Add to that numerous fleets, huge retirements etc and you can see why what someone in management says today totally earnestly may be 100% incorrect tomorrow.


OBTW - For years I was very critical of this but as long as we are the most profitable passenger airline in the world I must assume that there is some method to the seeming madness.



Plan for the worst and hope for the best.


Scoop
I too have been amazed the way marketing calls the shots and everyone else scrambles to make it work. The Dec 5th CR memo suggests they are trying to do a better job of looking at the training and stafing implications of marketing's decisions. Apparently there's money to be saved by planning ahead and coordinating efforts.

I especially liked the bit about building rotations with enough cushion to absorb minor disruptions. This comes how many months after the memo telling us the rotations were becoming more efficient to save money?
