Iíve done a fair share of Florida flying as it was out of RDU even before all these rumors. High market places like FLL and MCO. But Iíll take this as a positive sign.

Yea delta switches it around sometimes. I did that route back in 2015 even.

We don't have to give up scope on one end to protect it on the other.

While I appreciate your lack of faith in mainline pilots, there are an awful lot of former RJ drivers and those who were furloughed during the RJ expansion who would have to vote for that.

So you have a majority of former rj drivers? Or is it a growing number and youll still get outvoted?

I got caught up in the whole mainline furlough thing at ASA.

I felt awful for the DL folks who got kicked back to us at ASA. They were mainly former ASA Captains. We hired them and our pilot group agreed they could keep their DL seniority numbers.

Comair refused to do the same.

Comair is dead and has lost their retiree travel benefits.

ASA is dead and has lost their retiree travel benefits.

Doing the right thing by Delta pilots has proven to be a bust. We did the best we could for them at ASA and we got screwed.

Food for thought.

While the pilots only have so much control over what regionals Delta uses, I believe you'll find many more former ASA pilots at Delta than Comair.
