Every part 121 I've worked at had a green on green policy. But maybe you guys don't...

We do, that was why it took so long to get enough crews that could fly the A220.

Just so weíre clear, Iím not seriously worried that we are hiring 1500 hour pilots. Every regional has been doing that for years, and we have all seen some green FOs are great, and on the other hand we know pilots with thousands of hours who we would never want to fly with. Yes, hiring low time pilots does present a risk. But Iíll welcome them with open arms and do my best to be a leader. But if youíre coming here with no 121 experience, please know what youíre in for.

Okay, so you have a 101 hour CA paired with a 76 hour FO and it is not green on green. That will work out great. Doesn't happen? Think again, seen it personally.

Upgrade at NK is at 3.5 years......that's a "while"? You'll be doing day turns at Breeze as they seem to pull out of markets that they can't seem to make work.

Can anyone who works at Breeze please tell me what your current schedules look like on the A220? What about the 190?

TIA

2 day trips on the A220, supposed to have (already implemented?) 3 and 4 days. Iím not sure if they are doing anything other than 2 days currently.

E190/195 currently still does single day trips. Line holders do 10 days a month. We are starting a full time charter program in September for the E190, 7 on, 7 off. You can bid for that if you want to do it, probably a possibility a junior pilot could be forced to it. The E195 is supposed to stay on single day trips.

honestly, 10 days a month isnít bad. Do you know how many days off the 220 gets?

Thanks for your reply!

I really donít have much info on the A220, that side is still short staffed, so I think currently that they are working them pretty hard, as more and more become line qualified it will get back to normal.

I do want to make sure you understand that 10 days of work on the 190 IS great, but thatís a line holder. Reserve is only 11 days off per month, or about 15 off if you do charter.

How about we give some accurate information for a changeÖ

A220, nobody knows itís between day trips and multi day trips. Until the training backlog shakes out that QOL is up in the air completely.

Ejet, day trips is true and charter program is true. The charter program IS NOT 7 on 7 off, it is an AVERAGE of 7 on and 7off. They have already said if they have to they will DH on an off day if something goes wrong. You also WILL NOT be receiving a new day off. Instead they are just going to pay you min day for the day you ACTUALLY WORKED, no premium or anything on top like every regional carrier does when they take a day away.They actually think they are doing you a favor by giving that min day.

as for line holders on the Ejet, nobody is working 10 days unless you are in the top 4-5 pilots of CHS or bidding a min credit line or the top dog in the other bases.

ORF had 4 crews total this month and numbers 1-3 had lines and # 4 was a reserve line, as there wasnít enough time left to award the remaining trips to a 70hr line. ORF will have 3 destinations being served by the Ejet this winter, thatís it. A grand total of one pairing per day.

All the line holders up in BDL for Aug were awarded 55hrs of flying and then had 6-10 reserve days placed on their schedule as lineholders because the company decided to cut the last 10 days of the month out of the bid package WHILE BIDDING WAS OCCURRING to allow the A220 to pick back up in BDL. Mind you BDL is only a 220 base, but they didnít just wait to Sept like they should have, instead they screwed over all 8 crews up there. None of them are working just 10 days.

MSY had I believe 2 crews based in it this month. I believe they only had 1 pairing per day.

CHs has grown at the expense of every other base. But even it is shrinking this winter and people who were lineholders this summer are now back to reserve. It went from 11 crews in July to 16 in Aug and they are shrinking it back down to 11 for September. Our staffing strategy makes ZERO SENSE right now.
