Just hope these DECs realize they will be at the bottom of the bidding seniority and getting the worst of the worst schedules while everyone else whoís been here starts/continues to upgrade.

The ez way for us to solve that would be all CA to all bid FO positions again... im just joking ofcourse, don't want anybody to think im promoting a work action.

Heard from my buddy today they cancelled yet another upgrade class on the 25th. And a huge number of FO’s are going to Frontier. If that’s the case I doubt any classes will happen next month either. How are we still getting ANY new hires?

Who knows... I felt like we were doing really good last year until around November/December. This summer is going to get interesting as there is already 2000 hours open time for FOs and 1500 for captains just for April. Granted, BUPs havenít been made yet. Iíll have to look to see where we were last month.

Oh wait, I canít because our website has been down forever...

PDTs Flight schedule should ease up in the fall. Maybe they’ll start upgrades back up by then...

AWAC had a similar situation and once they started down that road it took them three years before they had enough FOs back on property to run upgrade classes.

Probably wonít be long till they start doing what Gojet does and have all of their DECs right seat qualified and mostly fly as FOís despite getting paid captain pay.

Our FSDO strictly prohibited that... ot

I wouldn't be surprised on forced downgrades from the bottom of the list to cover the flying. This summer is not going to be pretty for piedmont.

Doubt youíd see that since were not exactly fat on captains. Just barely properly staffed. Plus if you forced down grade someone you can guarantee theyíd be gone in a heart beat to a LCC or one of the other regionals offering direct entry captains.

Guess we'd see those DEC's get downgraded first.
