Did he grieve it? If not it probably never happened because that is a slam dunk win.

Have you ever tried to file a grievance here since ALPA was brought on board? There has been 1 grievance that has actually been filed in 4 years. We have 750 pilots. It doesn’t add up. Management has a really good working relationship with the union and they deserve a ton of credit for that but you’re not going to see eye to eye on everything. Also this past issue was done with MEC approval.

I talked to a pilot who tried to file a grievance on this particular incident. He said they wouldn't allow him to file it because they had approved it (!!!). It sounded like he had intentions on filing a complaint with national. It's made me rethink the whole process.

it isn’t rubbish, I stated that all 777Fs are all GE which is a fact since the 777F is based off of the 200LRs which is in fact all GE.

Your -200, -200ER, -300, Pax where all birds that could have PW, RR, and GE engines before GE became sole source for the -200LR, -300ER, and -F birds.

I believe what was intended is that the RR is rubbish
