Default FLICA tax?

Yup; lost the block for an entire 4 day trip I picked up; but not the credit.

Most junior FO's that got base swaps this last vacancy. ATL-200 FO Jan 17 hire, DTW-200 FO Feb 17, DTW-900 FO Oct 16, MSP-200 Jul 16, MSP-900 FO Oct 16. You may go to New York initially, but you will be able to move fairly soon.
JFK is still junior?
I'd be more interested in flying the -900, regardless of base; however a NY-area base would be perfect for me as I'm from the area.

Newhires will likely go 2/9 LGA for the time being.

This is literally goes back and forth. They were doing only JFK for Oct-Dec of last year, then it kinda went even, now its largely 2 LGA2s for every LGA9.

Default EV CRJ 200s and CRJ 200 longevity

at last count we are currently on EV transplant number 5.... 2 are currently in service... 2 went directly to heavy check.. and number 5 is in "bridge" inspection in MSP... the acars software setup is different from the 9E fleet... avionics is still working on finding the decoder ring to figure it all out... as far as 200 longevity our 2017 "flight plan" has us prepping for the ads-b mod.. this has been slated at $60k for every 200 we install it on... we all know daddy D savors every penny they have.. what I am getting it at is, personally I don't see Eddie Bastian spending over $40 million for a mod not needed til 2020 unless he thinks 200s will be around after that... I will believe it when they actually get the mod done though.. In addition just couple weeks ago... RG said don't be surprised to see more EV to 9E in 2018.

Let us know when the first 200 gets its ADS-B mod. Awhile back I was thinking the sign that Delta is serious about 200s is when they start putting ADS-B mods in.

Default ADS-B

Well.. the ads-b mod needs to be accomplished during a heavy check teardown or it becomes even more expensive to install so they will need to start soon to get done before the deadline.. no actual schedule that any of us in DTW Mx have seen up to now

I'll say this for the group - appreciate you coming on here and telling us this stuff. Doubly appreciate all the work you guys do to keep us flying. I've got around 500 hours at the company and only had two deferred APUs and one deferred pack on the heavy.

Sorry I just want the company to follow the contract. Guess 970+ company/121 time isn't enough for you, well it is in our contract but they didn't follow it for everyone, only some.

Make sure to quote the right person before making yourself look like a fool.
