I am top 1% at NWA, and I will walk before any DAL guy bumps me to 2%!

Right now I will retire at 65 as #3, no DAL guy is going to make me leave as #4! I have been through strikes, pay cuts and two divorces to make it here. I have had to sell one of my boats and a vacation home just to keep making my corvette and hummer payments since the pay reduction. I won't trade my seniority for more pay as that just means my two ex-wives will get more alimony. My seniority status is all that my girlfriend and I have now. No way I will stick around to suffer the humiliation of being junior to someone younger then me with less time at his (or her, god forbid) airline. For all you junior NWA people who want to make nice with DALPA and their lies should be ashamed. Us old guys went through h#ll to get what we have, and you are all willing to just throw us geezers under the bus for a measley 35% raise. I can not believe what this industry has come to. Again, I can't take it. I am going to take all 6 weeks of my vacation now just so I don't go crazy!!! Whales and my seniority forever!!!!

Don't let the door hit you in the "arse" on your way out. BYE BYE!!!

Something tells me "Whale god" may not be entirely legit.

Or, maybe Carl Spackler flipped out and got a new screen name.

I don't think Carl plans to stay until 65 either. Whale is joking.

Either way, it provided me a good laugh after 4 days of short call reserve in my luxurious Queens crash pad watching the phone not ring.

Matlock is over and Magnum P.I. doesn't start for another 20 minutes, so at least it provided some sort of entertainment.

Whale....god, is it? This post has to be a joke, it has way too many (if not all) of the classic, stereotyped cliche's of the senior, supremely egotistical airline captain. Corvette and hummer payments? payraises going to the ex-wives!--classic stuff, but the clincher as far as drumming up sympathy is concerned--has to be the "seniority status is all that my girlfriend and I have now"......I can see his girlfriend now: "come on baby, tell me about how you'll get to be in the top ten....then..#9...thats it baby...#8...#7...#6....oooh baby!! #5...#4......oh, baby,this is it!..#3!!! oooh, oh my (whale)(g)od!!!!.....uh-oh! oh no!---honey they stuck a younger Delta pilot in front of you at #3, you're only #4! I'm goin' shopping! (...hmmm....younger Delta pilot...probably cuter too...didn't have to sell his boat and vacation home...hmmm....)

LOL. Great post. He should feel threatened. Seeing as his girl started at 10 and could only get to 3 and then "sorry baby, I got mine now you'll have to get yours. Hey, we're missing Matlock!" She'll look at the young bucks at DAL and say "you'll have to figure out how to pay for your hummer and SUV with someone else. I'm going south baby. Now throw some 38 Special on!"

No, but I wish it was. I'm not anywhere near that imaginative or funny.
