Your reading comprehension SUCKS! BITTER was the word....not BETTER. And the guy who made the snarky 145 comment is clearly not an ASA guy.

Wow! Not gonna GIVE you anything.

If there EVER was a case for a national seniority list, this and the COMPASS/TSA debacle is it.

wouldn't be GIVING me a dam thing, I'd ratherTAKE it.

Or all those years and all that experience means NOTHING.

Every other unionized trade electricians, plumbers, steamfitters... their longevity follows them. Not so much seniority as everybody is working 7-3 anyway and there's not any benefit to seniority. But the lack of a national list for longevity and experience is an epic failure by ALPA. We should start a Call To Action to the ALPA higher-ups.

The problem with a master list for all USA pilots (which I think is what's suggested) is that if your company goes bust, will another company hire you and pay you at the seniority you had previously? I doubt it.

I can imagine airline apps have a "national seniority number" box. The junior guys may get jobs at other carriers but high seniority people will either be ignored or only hired in extreme circumstances.

Another way to look at a national seniority list. If another airline failed, would others want those pilots coming to their airline in seniority order and bumping them down? As an example, would other regionals like it if the very senior pilots from XJT went to their company and took the senior slots? I doubt it. We all like to talk about industry unity until it affects us in a bad way, then all bets are off. A national seniority list is good from the prospective of people working for a failing company, itís bad for the rest.

The national seniority list thing is amusing to talk about, and has been talked about for as long as I've been around. And it's something that will never happen.
