I would also think a line holding year 2 FO on the 190 would make as much or more than a year 2 reserve 320 guy while getting more days off...at least until we decouple the pay rates. And reserve time fluctuates, I don't think reserve will stay 1.5-2 years on the bus. But who knows.

I honestly think the company is trying to make it as miserable as possible and keep making things worse and keep taking stuff away and coming up with BS policies. All part of negotiations!
THIS!!!!!

There is nothing in our FSM or whatever we are bound by now, prohibiting 50% reserve coverage. Maybe even 75%.

Don't line divisors determine roughly how many people will be on RSV in a given month? Or how more senior people bid?

EX...High line divisor coupled with few senior people bidding min credit = more RSVs.

Don't we complain when we don't have enough reserves?? "If I was running this company we'd have enough Reserves for the apocalypse...They don't know what they're doing here!!"

I was just looking at the awards for the 320 BOS at my senority. I'm on the 190, aka JetBlue Lite.

This. Line divisors were around 77-79 for a busy travel month, so it doesn't seem too shady. If divisors were above 90 to augment reserve coverage, then that's a different story.

April 2015 new hire. Im 50% BOS 190 FO for the March system bid. 23 months and likely able to hold weekends off.
