That doesn’t say the fix applies to mainline.

As for our DH language in those situations you mention, we must be booked into Business class or better. There’s no upgrading involved.

Yes, the rest are booked into the Main Cabin but we still can upgrade ourselves as I’ve already pointed out. Nothing has changed for us.

To those taking cheap shots at me, this isn’t a mainline vs DCI debate. If certain peeps can’t respect facts being added to the conversation then that’s unfortunate. Point the anger at your managers, not other pilots that had nothing to do with this. I guess that’s what I get for stepping into the conversation.
I'd say "before everyone gets worked up," but I think we're getting past that point anyway.

It looks like what is happening here is we got a different memo at mainline than the DCI management put out.


Everyone, the mainline pilots who pay attention to the regional forums are the ones who care what happens to the regionals and their pilots. Most if not all are likely to be former RJ drivers and on this forum likely to be prior 9E pilots. Mainline pilots coming in and trying to make sure the information is correct is not trying to say you shouldn't have stuff, just saying what is happening. Our memo said that DCI pilots were never supposed to be able to upgrade and they "fixed the glitch" so to speak. Mainline pilots did not cause this change.

A glitch that has been in existence forever...OK yeah I don't buy that BS. I'll continue to think a skywest pilot ruined this for us all!! LOL

The big long term problem I see coming with this DH in uniform change will be how gate agents may misinterpret this rule in the future. As it is written, DCI isn’t supposed to be in FC or C+ on deadheads and the gate computers now won’t even let them upgrade (again key word is deadhead/positive space). BUT the problem comes when gate agents misinterpret this (and they will.. I’m looking at you ATL) to mean that DCI isn’t allowed in FC/C+ AT ALL PERIOD and extend this to non-rev/commuters and potentially strand them with open seats available.

It was an "office space" reference.


I actually can see it being something that was easier when implemented to let everyone have access to when it was only required for Delta pilots contractually etc. I'd expect that something did come up though that brought on this change.

It is my OPiNiON that we wil operate the 175 in NYC markets and OO will return to the west. All the long routes that the CR9 does out of NYC will go to the A220.

Yes because we are the only ones that are willing to cancel NYC landing slots at Delta's request. (remember F8? no contract carrier should ever trust Delta)

Just curious. Why do so many of you say “Doors for arrival”? Isn’t there only one door for arrival?

The airplane inferiority complex was a lot cuter when we had 34 seat turboprops.

Unless something changed since I left, they should all be saying it as that's the company policy. Reasoning I heard was to try to keep the PA noise as close to mainline as possible for the passengers.
