I heard a ton of FOs were at the job fair (WAI?) today talking to the legacies- Anyone know the projected attrition numbers for this year? Wanna bet final numbers?
Seems a little slow so far to start the year off, hope it picks up. Job fairs are a scam, I really hope people boycott them completely. Then the legacies will be forced to do more open houses.

Is that what you meant by "we see what we want to see" ?
I dont think how we view it has anytime by to do with how long we've been here......I'll admit I'm hopeful, but not unrealistic.......

Itll come down to attrition- If guys stay with the status quo, B6 has no reason to markedly improve any condition. Im hopeful only if FOs start to bail in droves.

A one paragraph update from the Negotiating Committee will never provide much detail thereby leaving a lot open to interpretation. If you want more detail, contact your LEC reps or even the NC. We pay dues for a reason and they all volunteer for a reason. Get involved, ask questions, and get your money's worth.

I think the P2P Committee is still looking for volunteers. I highly recommend volunteering. You'll help make a difference, get the information you're seeking straight from the source and have the opportunity to ask questions.

I've been here ten years, live in base, hold 320 Captain, would have to commute to any legacy, and my apps are out. Talk to some of our Tech Ops guys if you want to really be concerned about the future of this place🙁

Right now my biggest decision is whether to bail now or wait to bail after seeing if the TA falls short. From talking to other FOs, I think there are a significant number of us in the same position. If the TA takes too long, there won't be any reason to wait as we're giving up 700-1000 seniority numbers and tens of thousands of dollars per year at the legacies. #keepsgettingbetter

You really have not been here long right? So why not go to somewhere that you know exactly what you are getting. I am not saying that in a rude way but if it was me I would be trying to leave.
Time is never on your side.

Perhaps because some of us really would like to stay here, but are realistic about the shortfalls we face?

It seems some people here paint anyone who b!tches as a pessimistic malcontent who should just move along to another airline, when in reality they really want to be here but just aren't naive or willing to settle for less than they ought to be compensated. The whole "if you don't like it, leave" thing really does a disservice to the pilot group by tilting the balance toward the juicers IMHO. But at some point it will be time to cut bait and leave you with the blue glovers...
