They believe simple rigs and pay will get them PBS. Work you like a mule, but at least you’ll have trip and duty rigs😅 Look at Envoy for example….

At least they increased LCA pay. Get your time and Get Out!

You put all your trips start and end that are commutable and POOF, PBS makes it happen. PBS is better to have than not having it. I’d rather pick commutable trips, specific dates off, than worry about the top 25% being able to bid a line that touches on of their 2 weeks of vacation.

I don't think anyone is saying that PBS doesn't have the possibility of being good, only that anyone who knows how PSA operates doesn't trust the company to implement PBS in a way that is good for the pilots.

And he doesn’t realize there is no way for reservist to pick up additional flying and make more than their 75 hours if PBS happens. Upgrading would take a solid 2 years instead of 1-2 years. I have buddies at Envoy that haven’t touched a plane in 2 months since they got done with IOE.. beautiful PBS

Wasn't PBS one of the conditions of Envoys LOA, or do they already have PBS?

Your point stands though, it would probably clear out the open time.

PBS was contractually coming to Envoy after we received our 40th 175. We have 98 now. This LOA is finally implementing it.

yeeeaaah, but no. "Sorta" at best. The old LOA said the parties will start having talks about it. This new gem says "extra super urgent talks, and if you don't agree we take it to arbitration and claim operational needs".
let's not mix up oranges and apples, different fruit, don't even taste similar.
