They can pick up all the block hours they want to handle, they just need to share the added wealth with appropriate additional compensation agreed to by the employees whom will make it happen. Not force it on the employee with increased bid awards and denied schedule adjustments. I guess they still donít get it, sigh... RJ is not representative of the vast majority of the pilot group.

I had to pay for my hotel room when I interviewed at a major airline. During training they paid for a nice hotel in Dallas, we also got full guarantee. As long as people are coming through the door SkyWest will not change how they do things.

Time for RJ to go.. if we could magically staff 500 more CRJ pilots right now on the list. All out problems would go away.. (as long as they donít take on more block hours)

Looks like from the august RSR the erj fo reserve percentages dropped below that of crj fo . This may not mean erj has dipped into crj staffing levels (FO side) or it may ?

The company thinks that all is fine ... they don't see any issues.

Funny. You know I havenít heard people complaining on APC of not flying for a while now. Kinda makes the people who picked the CRJ in the last 6 months to ďget hoursĒ suckers.

I think there was a message ďfrom the topĒ rope hinting that they donít plan on picking up as much coverage flying this winter as last.

Kinda misleading isn't it? They don't "make" you pay for a hotel. It's your choice to interview with them. It's on you to decide if you need a room or not. Then to call them cheap ***holes they probably don't want a millennial like you anyway...

No, they put us in suite configurations. I had my own room and bathroom and shared a kitchen and living room with a classmate.

I don't we'll get any QOL improvements or raises until we have a meltdown and flights cancel, aka Horizon and Republic a year or two ago. Thus far they've been able to keep the operation going with minimal cancellations. But, it's come at the expense of us all working our butts off with little breaks. When I first upgraded, I was so burnt out from working 6 day trips with only two days off in between. I just called in fatigued that last day and went home a couple times. Key is to make sure you are fit to fly.
