Continental Equipment System Bid Seniority and DOH
 
The following is based on the latest CAL equipment system bid that is effective next August. This means that theoretically this is how our airline will be staffed on August 1, 2008. This is based on a snap shot of the bid (if the bid would have closed today) although the bid doesn't actually close until August 7. However based on previous bids there will be only minor changes to these numbers.

I have listed each equipment, base and status based on what seniority would hold at the 25th percentile, 50th percentile, 75th percentile and the bottom bidder in terms of system seniority number and date of hire at Continental. Due to the very complicated seniority list mergers between Continental and Texas International, New York Air, People Express, Frontier and an extremely complicated flow through agreement with Continental Express (ended prior to current hiring spree from 6/05 to present) I have attempted to convert (if possible) to a CAL date of hire or used the other merged into airline date of hire with a note.

The following was very time consuming and difficult to do via a bid graph with many interpolations so mistakes are possible. However for the FO positions especially those hired after 6/05 are accurate.

Look at that EWR 737. 2 years to Capt. This should continue for quite a while!! What a pay raise!!;)

WEACLRS 08-01-2007 02:59 PM

No. Three years. Yes, still very fast, granted. No right to complain. Remember though, that person will be one of the last to be trained, most likely next summer. The bid is the picture as of 8/1/2008, not today.

CAL EWR 08-01-2007 03:06 PM

Not necessarily. Training for this bid could begin as soon as October. Under the current contract with bidding for training classes many decide to train as late as possible, some try to play the game and not train until the next bid is out to give them an out option. Many decide to wait until many below them are trained as to not be to junior when they finish training.

Anything is possible but I believe many will be trained sooner rather than later. Also safe bet many will train in Nov and Dec because of the holidays. If you are junior no guarantees you could be involuntarily assigned to training in relative short order.

WEACLRS 08-01-2007 03:17 PM

Ok. That makes sense. Interesting... I just assumed that training would generally occur in seniority order because the desire for the pay increase would be the driving factor overall.

This is exactly the kind of statement that management loves. I got news for you. Making CA in two years and going from FO to CA is NOT, REPEAT, NOT a payraise.

I have alot to complain about. Our contract and the pay rates suck. You guys are happy that we have 2-3 yr pilots holding CA but I see the underlining problem with our contract that we have 23 yr. FOs and 2-3 year CAs on this bid. I've got 17 yrs and am bidding out of the CA seat on this bid to the B777 FO seat just to have at least some resemblance of QOL. So enjoy that big fat pay raise and be sure and vote yes for what-ever the company shoves down our throats in 2009. Sorry, you don't get it.

I agree......I have 20 yrs. with CAL. Enjoy being a JUNIOR Captain boys. When the (pinch me I'm a Captain wears off) you will realize the mistake you made.

rk772 08-02-2007 07:27 AM

I'm confused with your numbers for IAH 756 FO. According to the bid, there are 0 vacancies for this position. How would new-hires be awarded this position if current CAL pilots can't hold it.
I'm still pretty new, so forgive my ignorance of how all this works.

whiskerbizkit 08-02-2007 10:08 AM

Why do think they hired all those 23yr old FO's?
