I would call that resourceful, you would call me the scum of the earth. The guys chest bumping on here are the same ones that will extend to make it home for their kids birthday - which I completely understand, even in a labor dispute. And I, as the Captain, would very much help a guy get home for that. Shame on me!
You should go be a P2P guy again 😂

Heís been here. Heís just been posting under his other username. Apparently he needs all that VDA to pay for a hotel room so he doesnít have to slum it in a crashpad.

This is true. I had to create another name after not being able to reset this one for years. And the trick is to not need VDA, but I don't ignore the call if it is favorable to me either. Not that any of you deserve an explanation.....

Some call it an explanation, I call it a disgusting excuse for your own personal gain.

I'm aware. People like you only care about yourself and rationalizations you make to get what you want.

Just make sure your post is equally targeted at the pilots family who had children with unforeseen medical issues with a lifetime of medications and doctors visits. And even at our salary, still has to work his ass off to pay the bills. Make sure you tell them Joe said No to picking up trips!

oh I didnít say donít I just said pilots that do are the problem.

VDA away the day volunteer rsa pick up whatever but when it comes to labor dispute times, I will not do anything other than what is required. But thatís me.

So let me ask you this if we were on strike (you know someone telling you what to do) would you cross that line?

Let's not confuse picking up a 200% trip with crossing a picket line. Apple and oranges.
