Well Phil was pre merger. I was more talking about the CEO's that came post merger. Basically after the guy from Frontier, S.M.

Phil annouced the merger that he negotiated. Where in the multi-year commitment of merging do you draw the line? The beginning? Every time it changed goals and targets the first few months? The contract? The date of the SL integration? The date it ended?

All i remember from S.M. was him crying and blubbering about how bad the bankruptcy was gonna hurt his family, and that i can't put my bag in the closet anymore because he needed the whole coat closet to himself, his witch, and his awful children. Has this new CEO started crying yet in public about how hard the winters are on his family yet? Or how embarassed he gets trying to explain to his friends that he still works for Delta, but his badge says something else now, any day now the gift of absolution bestowed by Delta will remove him from our filthy regional stench? Has he given himself a raise to put up with the indignity of dealing with regional management? S.M. was a clown and he lasted 10 minutes. I suppose we had to hear his lips flap slightly more, but lets not encourage the new guy just in case he is as insufferable.

well, I just gave you my cutoff and it seems you know why I cut it off where I did.... If you don't like my choice of where to cut things off, you are welcome to post your own.

26 Captain Secondary Vacancies not backfilled. 40 total Captain positions opened on the vacancy. So 14 new upgrades.

No NYC or DTW 900 captain secondary vacancies were filled. Not a shock, but they weren't kidding about Atlanta growth above all.

Doesn't the filling of secondary vacancies happen on the final (not initial) award?

It depends how much work planning will put into the initial. From what I've seen/understood there are just short of one dozen fleet plans on plannings board. Why do any extra work when you have so many other nonsense scenarios to jeep (!) track of.

I wonder if they did this on purpose because weíre overstaffed? I bid for CA (prior time, but not yet to 1000 company) and didnít get anything because they didnít waive section 24 or whatever. Must not be hurting for captains...

I cannot see any reason they will waive the company time requirements any time soon. There are plenty of late 2016 early 2017 hires who are fully qualified when the upgrade train does start back up.
