Just my thoughts.. I hope I am wrong.. at least about the bad news part... they have flat out said.. this is all "in flux"
When hanging out with our Big Dogs did you ask if they
were heading to France for the Paris Air Show?

My first 2-3 months sitting reserve amounted to something less than 30 hours as I recall. Not knowing how high you are in the reserve grid, what I can tell you (from my experience) is that the closer you get to holding a line, it seems the more skeds will fly you. Unfortunately it should be the opposite. The brand new guys should be flying the most on reserve because they are the ones who really need the practice and experience. Best of luck to you.
I've had a line for a while, been here about a year. I'm just trying to figure it out for a couple friends that just started. The way they use (or don't use) Ready RSV here is baffling to me.

All ya'll being angry about 4-6 months of reserve on NYC900 bases, that was the standard and has been for more than the last year. The whole one month of reserve then line holding in JFK was a thing for about 3 new hire classes that lasted two bid periods. And some of those people are back on reserve.

No, that was because everyone over in LGA saw how much better schedules were in JFK and we all jumped over. People are going back now to LGA and the bases are becoming more even in relative seniority. JFK was very junior for a while and LGA is becoming more junior now.

On the mx side.. the word they are being told at OO is that they will be getting the 700s from EV and 9E will be getting the 900s... as for the Paris air show... not sure what that is about.. I remember that is how we found out about the legacy 900s.. someone got a photo of a 900 with 901xj painted on it (and the company still denied we were getting 900s)... the mainline scope has DC capped at current airframes... maybe RG and JD just want to go to the south of france together and give everyone their linkedin page.

First let me say thanks to MX team. Second it is great to have your input as you probably know things before the pilots.

Are we still taking deliver of 3 -200s in July and the balance of the 14 in 20-7? When are they telling you to expect the EV 900s and any idea of where they are basing the aircraft? Feel free to elaborate.

Thanks again for keeping us safe!

Bankruptcy? Mergers? Pay cut's of 40%...You're like an old railroad man talking about the way things were. If you're gonna wear those things as a badge of honor then suck it up and stop mentioning it. The implication that I have to see things get worse before I realize how good I have it applies to nearsighted individuals (like yourself) that can't see the calamity approaching and properly conceal themselves. You went through that by choice, you stuck through that by choice, don't externalize that mentality of "knowing how good things are and how bad they can get" onto me. That is YOUR logic,and it is diametrically opposed to progress. True colors revealed. Next!





Damn that was good, thats that "slow troll". I got some ex's that I'd like you to use your lyrical genius on if you ever want to expand your craft.





So we agree. All of you can assume I'm an idiot, it's fine with me. I have a bad attitude , I don't sip the "kool-aid" and what have you etc. But to some I'm referred to as an analyst (just opened myself up to some real criticism with that chain-yanking, I know), and the trends here aren't favorable.

There is no pilot shortage at Endeavor despite both what the IROP email-updates state when they list crew resources as "NIL" and "Daly Downloads/Flight Ops Updates/EDV MEC report when it comes to falling short of hiring projections. It's a ploy to restrict pilot movement to the left seat in order to maintain staffing at the subsidiary level while keeping people interested with a single shot at Delta (with the caveat that you pass all the testing a pilot from off the street would be subject to). The winning team mentality is stressed with OPR payments and scorecards of who the best DC carrier is...and guess who Delta/Endeavor always says is doing the best job? Hell we do such a good job that we get the OPR payout even when we dont meet operational goals! Do you guys remember potato chip vans and snack food trucks that would make deliveries to supermarkets? They are as rare as unicorns now because there was a guy who actively searched out ways to cut costs and utilize cheaper wholesale transport companies. That guy runs Delta now. And if you think he needs us, just remember what he said in a recent "Ask Ed anything"- he said "there is no pilot shortage at Delta" (keep in mind this was hours after a severe computer crash that crippled operations and could have been blamed on a host of issues, not just a multi million dollar computer program, but in spite of a meltdown, he looked into the camera and with the most certain nonchalant voice). Well I talked your ear off CODs4ever, I'll let you go, I gotta go "see about a girl(s)" with these next few replies. Be safe bro, I sincerely appreciate the logical response.





I didn't expect a thing, it was an inside perspective. Better question, why did you think there was "quid pro quo" with my 1st post ever on this site? No expectations other than fallout from some macho nachos (like that one Bartok? I'm subjecting myself to your poetic genius, bless you prince)

Early upgrade to captain? Shichyea! Higher pay maybe? You don't understand. It's not the reserve lifestyle I take issue with, it's the pitiful flying time that is dispensed when associated with reserve work. I didn't come to a regional for quality of life. I came here for the potential, my classmates came here for the potential, new-hires decide to come here for the potential. That potential has been and currently is being falsely advertised.

And respectfully, please spare me the concern when you dictate how I should "post"or "reply". That controlling trait is concerning and indicative of the toxic mentality those who think they have subordinates demonstrate. Work on it. It'll make you a better man in the long run.



Mmm mm mm hello again beautiful!Maybe we can get to first base now? Maybe not. But youre absolutely right darling! Youre "not the one" who any of my heed applies to. So do me a favor, don't tickle my feet and play hard to get in front of all these other gentlemen callers, youre special to me, hit the DM's, you know what I mean Let get this thing going (insert suggestive finger emojis).



Well my legs fell asleep and negative pressure from all the courtesy flushes is starting to take a toll on my thigh meat. TTYL bros.
Come to dtw. On reserve you will fly 90plus hrs a month!

The only people who really know, don't post on here. Anything on here is just rumor at this point.

Default ATL Mx

I've noticed that 9E Mx has been at the gate to meet every flight I can recall in ATL. One of the Mx guys said this is a goal of theirs. I understand that it won't always be possible, but I think it's a great goal. Is this common at other bases?

Hats off (uh-oh), I mean nice job to the ATL Mx team!

Mx regularly does this. Although to me it seems less these days due to them doing Express Jet birds now too. Mx also does a good job responding to ACARS messages regarding maintenance issues and will usually meet you at the gate in base or set up contract maintenance at an outstation. They're much better than a couple of years ago

We were supposed to get a total of 14 200s for 2017... we have taken 6 so far (1 of which was scheduled as 1 of the 3 for July)... the remaining 8 are "on hold" according to RG..... we may take them or they may be converted into 700s or 900s... stayed tuned to your favorite bat channel for further updates
