As it stands right now, furloughed NWA pilots are not entitled to ANY positions at Mesaba. Only slots a Compass... If Mesaba gets more than 36 51-76 seat aircraft, then NWA furloughees would be entitled to half of the pilot seats on those aircraft.

That is odd. Any reason on the letter? Did it come via FedEx or E-mail? Did you feel bad about some portion of the interview.
I am curious because you are the first person that I have heard of that has received ANY correspondence from the company. Thanks, and sorry to hear it.

I specifically asked some NWA pilots about the existence of Compass. They seemed pretty neutral about it, but did not refer to it as a scab company. On the contrary.

I don't think they like it, but accept it. After all, they did vote to concede that flying, albeit with the proverbial gun to their head.

What are the negotiated pay rates for years 1-5 for Captains on the ERJ-175?

There is no Mesaba carve out for 36 jets in the NWA contract if mesaba is a wholly owned. The NWA pilots have filed a grievance against mesaba for operating 76 seat aircraft. According to the NWA pilots, mesaba must conform with the 76 seat jet rules set forth in the NWA contract to any mesaba 76 seat jet.

How long did it take to receive the interview packet after you applied? Then, how long before the interview?

Compass pilots might not be scabs, (topic up for debate) but, once you graduate to those bigger shiny planes at NWA, you can be sure that your fine A & P mechanics are! Frankly, NWA's management is a bunch of union dopes, that I would never interview with. (AMFA leaderships up for debate too, but union busting at any level is union busting.)
