Default Real Unofficial Poll: Staple Compass if:

Ignore the fubar on the previous poll and this is to go along with the unofficial Delta pilots to Compass flowdown poll.

Does the DAL MEC forum support polls like this? I'm thinking other airline's answers could skew your results.

Why do you show facts? People just ignore them.

Jim,
The comparison of the 175 and the DC-9 is awesome. What are the pay scale differences. Let's put it into perspective of how messed up it really is. Throw in there the CRJ 900 too.

People need to stop using the term RJ. There is nothing regional about any of them.

Except, of course, the perception (built in Canada/Brazil vs. USA/Europe) of the public and *some* senior mainline pilots. And the pay.

What a great opportunity to reverse the trend and bring the E-170 to a mainline carrier.

Get them on the list (even if it requires a staple) but make sure they get the current DC-9/E190/CRJ900 payscale at Mainline.

I fly a real regional jet. The CRJ 200. I don't want to fly it forever. I want a place to go someday. So those of you at mainline, vote these things in so I don't get stuck at the regionals for life.

You got it buddy! You understand. We're coming and it's coming in force. The time is now to take action. Although I don't believe in a staple, it may be necessary (I say this with hesitation). I think the jets should come to mainline at the mainline rates established in the contract. I would prefer to give preferential hiring, but keep the same DAL standards intact. Everyone has to interview. If you pass the test, you keep the job and start as a first year FO. Simple as that. If not, you're out. Do not accept lowering the bar. Keep the standards high.
