Obviously if you want to compare yourself to the top half of the seniority list that is on the wide-body aircraft, different story, but overall with the proper perspective, not as bad as some make it out to be in my opinion.

I want to drive to BOS to start my trips for the next few decades

I'm not optimistic that a BOS base would survive longer term with JFK/EWR/IAD. But c'est la vie. I'll move to one of their hubs (which are much better choices than our current ones) if that happens. There are certainly a ton of better things that would come with a UAL merger, so I shouldn't just talk crap about it.

So much hot air. It would take you 10 years or more to catch back up financially.

Lol, what exactly has United management done that's so awe-inspiring?

DL management has separated themselves from the rest......but United? I'd say the only smart thing they did years ago was realize that merging was better than competing.

Well, for one, they didn't take away everyone's profit sharing...

How long have the UAL pilots had a CBA?

While i think this is an amazing stretch. A UAL merger would suck. And the misery would continue.
