The majors have reduced flights by 8 to 14 % due to lack of pilots. They are able to vacuum up regional pilots, but they cannot get them trained and out on the line fast enough. Things will improve in the next year or two as far as majors cancellations. But the regionals will be collapsing, merging, reducing service with no immediate sign of recovery.

Hope that extra $4k - $6k+ a year is worth it.
Wow how out of touch are you? I feel stupider after reading this.

Someone is definitely out of touch but it isn't me.

What exactly do you think that ALPA is going to do that isn't being done already? Do you think they're going to show up and automatically get us the new UPS rates?
Breeze has given raises at least every quarter if not more often. Work rules are improving all the time and leadership has shown that they're trying to communicate and work with the pilots in order to make it a place where people want to work.

I know that everyone with little experience thinks that ALPA is going to be some saving grace but that's not the way it works. The biggest factors when it comes to work rules and compensation, are the profitability of the company and the willingness of management to work with the pilots.

Take a look at all the companies represented by ALPA and you'll see everything from the best compensation/work rules (Delta, FedEx etc.) all the way down to the bottom of the barrel places to work (Swift, Mesa, Commutair, Western Global, etc.) and everything in between. If ALPA is the determining factor, why aren't Spirit and Frontier pilots making the same as Delta? Why has Mesa been a terrible place to work when they've had ALPA since the late 1980's?

If management was unwilling to work with us and playing hardball, that would be completely different. Then I'd agree that a union is neccessary, but that's not even close to the way things are.

He's probably a management troll. They know they messed up, whether they admit it or not. For christ sakes, they're trying to say they weren't allowed to have enough voters. Classic. LOL.

Thoughts on the Breeze Boost program? I'm at 1200 hrs, qualify for my R-ATP, and have already completed my CTP... Still need to knock out my ATP written.

I think there was some email that I saw about it. It’s a “trial program”. Whatever that means. I have no info on a commitment you would owe the company for having them pay for your last 300 hours. Email recruitment for details.

I still always say to potential pilots with no 121 experience, tread lightly. Our training is spitballed for already-typed, previous 121 experienced pilots. Not saying you won’t make it, it’s just something to consider. Regionals have established training programmes already in place that are better suited for new hires
