Guess I'll be the one to make the thread...

Thoughts on this whole UAL/JS issue?

Republic guy here. Itís a shame that OO and YX are considered other airline pilots in the eyes of united, considering our two regionals are consistently the top performers. Not to mention the two largest...

United and UAX preferred pilots will be affected coast to coast, kind of like we will be now, along with Mesa. I really hope Republic, Skywest, and Mesa pilots stick together on this and force some real change. Itís ridiculous how United is treating itís largest partners.

It's UALPA not UAL really forcing this decision.

LOL management and a pilot union are two totally separate entities. Management couldnít care less about their pilot groups until this starts affecting UAís operation negatively, then I guarantee something will change. On a side not UA could never get rid of YX and OO, who is gonna full the flying void? These two regionals make up the majority of the UAX operation.

Changes are coming. LoL all you want. At the end of the day, a jumpseat war is just dumb. I wouldnít want to be an express crew denying UAL guys rides to work. The repercussions will go beyond an emotional response from your fake union.

From my understanding, UAL just changed the priority that they assign the JS to. The new order puts UAL pilots first, UAL exclusive regionals second, and all others last (this includes Mesa, Republic, and Skywest).

The official stance from the Skywest pilot group is to deny the JS to UAL and UAL exclusive pilots.

At least that's what I got from it. It is my day off, so my English might not be up to ICAO standards atm.

Why deny them the JS? You guys should have just done the same thing you did with AA. This seems like the nuclear option to me, but Iím sure your JS Committe has more info then this site.
