Let me answer the questions. Talking just crj because thatís what is in phx.

Phx is jr to dfw right now. All new hires are doing a stint in IAD. Plan at least a month or two. Prior 121 time? Fast upgrade. I would be higher in phx than dfw as a ca. Ca movement in the first 4/5 of the list is slow. Plan extended reserve as ca. Fo - not much reserve right now. We have fewer fo than ca but this see saws back and forth.

Crew tracking - marked improvement in the last couple years. Their job is hard but they have always dealt with me respectfully as I do with them.

Since going public the leadership has seemed to recognize the value if their people. I love the people I work with.

Realize this is a severely understaffed airline and it does impact QOL.

Management does a good job pretending they care and thatís reflected in our pay checks. No min daily credit. Near lowest Captain pay. Youíre already typed so training will be a breeze for you. A large percentage of our fleet with United is only under contract for the next few months.

Yeah, why commute? SkyWest has LAX and SAN bases, as reflected in the pilot domiciles website. Compass is still in LA (and Phoenix) too.

The issue may be how long to hold those bases.

Be careful choosing Mesa, on the last 3 standing bid awards hardly anyone has been awarded PHX. Its taking about 9 months to get PHX currently. If not more. Most new hires get IAD and then DFW shortly after but the domicile assignments lag behind. In June they will award bases for the month of October.

Do you blame management or our Union for our pay. Just think if you were a business man. Would you try to save money anyway you can as long even if it included labor. The Union is where I look to correct the inequality in my pay
