Lol, it wouldnít be involuntary if you volnteered.

If youíre really junior, you might try just not bidding any TDY at all and hope to get it. I have no idea how to guess just how junior you need to be to have a shot though.

hey peeps Skywest guy here. On the CRJ, just looking for what you guys would say are the pros and or cons of coming to Envoy vs staying here at skyw. We just signed a 5 year agreement for 1% a year to get 100 new aircraft (not bragging) 46% of us no voters are ****ed. Anywho im just curious what the pros and cons some of you guys would say to jumping ship, I am a year point five in seniority here but just would like some insight from the other side. AA is my number one choice but it seems like they don't take many skywesters.

Pros: Quick upgrade, decent compensation, lots of movement, full AA travel benefits with same priority as AA pilots, flow as a last resort back up plan.

Cons: Poor QOL compared to other places including SKW, schedules suck, out dated horrendous RSV system, life being a living hell if you are a commuter- especially commuting to RSV.

While flow sounds nice, it's pretty much worthless at this point for new hires. Envoy is only sending the bare minimum of pilots per month to AA. A new hire today is projected to flow in nearly 9 years assuming no attrition and flowing the contractual minimum. Unless you have skeletons in your closet, anyone hired today will not have to wait 9 years to move on. I can't even imagine what the industry will look like that far down the line. But I will say that as the staffing crunch really begins to take a hit here in the next few years, I'd definitely feel safer at a WO regional airline than a contract airline. It's all a crap shoot though when it comes down to it. I'd say stay put at some place you can drive to work.

January bid packets out. On a quick glance, ORD lost 5 hard lines and 1 composite line. Low credits. Haven't looked at other bases yet.
