I haven't read through all the prior posts, but as far as the recent few, you are coming across as the one who is more touchy and defensive. His posts don't seem completely out of touch. UA has a lot of things in their contract that we need in ours. I haven't done a side by side comparison, but based on a lot of things I share with a friend at UA we both agree there are many good things we could take from each other's contracts. What I read is that DH and seat assignments are a big issue with many here at D and that is not the case at UA. They've got their S#!* straight when it comes to that part of the contract.

Just seems light. I guess if they alternate large and small classes they could do 130-140 per month. Are they on track for their summer number is all I really care about. I havenít been keeping totals but 21 seemed too small to be accurate. I thought they were looking for a net gain of 400-500 from June 2019 to June 2020.

BS initially said approx 125/month Jan-May to get 625 pilots on line for Summer 2020.

Then at a base visit last week he said Jan/Feb were on track for the 125/month, but they would incease Mar-May to 150/month.

Summer of 2019, the bottom of the seniority list hovered in the 14,340's.

List is now at 15,540, so already a gain of 100.

2019 averaged 44 retirements a month.So Feb net gain should be 80....Mar-May net gains should be 106.

Appears we will be in the 400-500 net gain ballpark.....big qustion is will that actually be enought to cover the increase in year-over-year summer flying?

Not an issue. We'll just cut out all the credit. Problem solved.

You do understand that my comment about him being out of touch was saying that people would be better off staying at a regional than coming to DAL, right?

There are two things I'd like to get from UAL. Their deadhead rules and crew meal rules. Honestly I don't know of anything else.
