I think 13 were in the first class this month at AA. 11-12 are left in the pool after that group left. They will likely fill the August class with the next selection covering September and beyond.

Makes sense. Thanks for the update on the pool. 40 days since the last selection, I suppose we won't be getting anything quicker until the "T" group is done and then the holidays hit and it slows again.

I think you missed my point. It doesn't matter if they want to or not. Our contract doesn't allow FOs to bid other equipment until they upgrade.

I think you missed his point. I think he was suggesting the company allow FOs to bid the 175.

The company has decided to delay running of the captain vacancy bid. Let the speculation begin!

yes, its due to lack of management staffing.

When was the last time they delayed a running?

The one thing that doesn't lack is management staffing.

Latest from tha association on our August schedules.

MEC Communications Chairman

Commentary on the August Schedules
It’s no secret that the schedules system wide for August are atrocious. In my 9-year career spanning two airlines, eight domiciles, and four aircraft types, I have never seen the schedules actually get worse in the middle of the summer. To say this is unprecedented in the history of this airline is an understatement. Many pilots have been reaching out to the MEC and various volunteers with the same question that has been persistently echoed for the last 2 years.

“When will it get better?”

The truth is, we simply do not know. I will not lie to any one of you and say that next month will hopefully be an improvement. Normally, with the summer schedule coming to an end on August 21st, one would expect changes (for better or worse) as the slower fall schedule sets in, but with AAG requesting Envoy cover for other carriers and operate at full throttle continuously, I can only assume that the schedules will continue in present fashion into the foreseeable future.

Gotta hand it to this guy. At least he's being more honest than "3 years" boy.
