Yes, they just have been small classes. Should change in a few weeks as turnover has increased again.

Word on the street is Delta can’t legally force a Propel pilot to work at DCI, so it looks like the AA wholly owned have a new staffing program.

I know it’s one of those “ I have a friends uncles brother” hearsay rumors on an Internet forum but I posted in the PSA forum a few weeks ago that I was told by someone who was at the meeting in ATL that Delta actually is giving preference to AA WOs pilots that meet their hiring metrics as a strategic business move. They said it would be ramping up over the next few years to strain AAs feed. This person has a position in the company to know this kind of information and no reason to lie about it.

Yes they can because there’s nothing legally binding Delta to the Propel pilot. If they want to be in the program, they must work for one of the five DCI carriers or take one of the other paths. Delta legal crafted the “pledge” to be just that. Nothing forces Delta to accept the pilot in the future nor does it force the pilot to stay connected to Propel. Either party can end participation at any moment for any reason without penalty.

Wow, what a trustworthy company worth working so hard to be a part of from the ground up. I guess the "rules of the road" only apply when it suits Delta.

Nice try but epic fail. The pilots are told all of this upfront. Nothing is left to chance and it’s fair to all parties. Delta doesn’t want to force someone to come here if the pilot feels they want to be somewhere else. Likewise, Delta has up until the offer is made to come to mainline indoc to decide if the pilot is the right fit for Delta.

Propel is all about options for these pilots and it is crafted with that in mind. No promises are made by Delta and the pilot must earn their keep every step of the way.
