Seriously though, I thought the same thing before I upgraded, it's really not that bad if you have time to keep up with it throughout the day.
Nice. I see what you did there.

I felt like that, until I got over slinging bags and boxes. Never got over having two engines though. Epaulets.

Yep, every single time a survey or suggestion was asked for I filled it out or sent one in. I sent trip sheets to the pilot committee. I filled out feedback forms every time something happened that wasn't right. I never received a single response from anyone other than the pilot committee. So yeah, I did more than just complain about it.
Nothing you've said is even remotely threatening. It's just flawed. You've been told by at least 2 pilots here that your understanding of the MOU, especially how it pertains to jet upgrade, is incorrect. Yet here you are, a former employee, who has supposedly "moved on" making it a point to come on here and argue that particular point. Had you even stayed at Planesense, the whole jet upgrade details with the MOU, as currently written, wouldn't have even affected you. I would bet that whole bonus contract is gonna change or maybe even not be available to upgrades after 2018. Even a new hire street captain hired today, signing the MOU today, will wear out the 24 months on the contract long before they are upgrading to a jet.

As far as your experiences, great info. Really. But as others have already pointed out, respectfully, some of that was on you and your crew. The FOC is gonna do what they do because it's their job. It's on individual pilots and crews to look out for themselves and pull out the stop sign when it comes to rest, food, and fatigue. You gotta look out for yourself no matter what company you work for. Speak up and stand your ground when it comes to issues that affect your performance on the flight deck. Not a single aviation company or VIP passenger on the planet is worth risking your certificate or even worse, your life, if you fly fatigued or are starving cause you haven't eaten in 12 hours.

Will this roller fit under a seat? Or, how often does it end up checked, or are you pretty successful in getting it all aboard?

This was pretty much my set-up when I flew for Airlines, it just seemed like I got looked after very well when I was either deadheading or commuting. Plus, I had a small cooler.

Just curious what luggage strategies are being used, if I get hired, I know that Iíll be Airlined quite a bit, thatís OK, Iím just trying to learn the little things you learn from people already living the life, so as, to perhaps learn something that helps aliviate some pain..

Also, anyone have TSA pre or Global?

Does it help?

Thanks for the insights.

Yeah. Should have checked my work. Stupid auto correct.

I get it all aboard 95% of the time. If anything is gate checked (pink tag valet) it is the larger of the two. That's very rare though. Most of my flights are on mainline and not much valet. I have never checked a bag with this company. Just not worth the hassle. Hence why I bought a standard 22" roller that will fit. Plus it's extremely durable.
The smaller roller does fit under most seats. I usually sling it up top if there is room. I've had no issues with luggage on mainline carriers.

TSA PRE is a MUST in my opinion. I would also look into CLEAR as an addition. Simplifies life. You can show up ALOT closer to your flight time and not 2 hrs ahead. CLEAR is in 19 cities and growing. I usually get through ATL in 5 mins or less. MY record is 2:40 using CLEAR/PRE combined. Somemtimes, depending on the airport, I show up 10 to 15 prior to boarding. BOS is not one of those FYI. Plus when you go through scanners for PRE, you can grab a white bowl and put it in front and back of your bags. Tell them you're crew and they usually let most things go. Water, other liquids and such. It makes life easy. Most of the places are good about it. Its the small backwoods airports that suck sometimes. Plus medallion/elite status helps with upgrades and boarding. These are my experiences. Hope this helps.

Big Thanks for the info on CLEAR, I had never heard of it. In the past I had KCM and that worked great, but with no KCM, I might be investigating other available programs.

If you can put up with the lines for a month or so, just wait til you get 30,000 Hilton Honors points and you can spend them on Precheck.

I know that you can't use KCM but does TSA treat you as CrewMembers for liquids or do you have to follow the TSA passenger rules?

Passenger rules apply. I usually let them know im crew and that these are my bags and I place a white bowl in front and back of my bags. My water stays filled etc. Usually don't give me any hassles. There are a few small airports that don't care if you have KCM or just a boarding pass. They want everything out of the bag.
