Also, you "passed" on a ja during vacation? MAJOR CBA VIOLATION.

Careful you don't loose your IA club membership

Two cba violations don't bother you, but at least "socialist advocate" gave you a chuckle?

I'm not sure JoeyMeatballs said he was on Spirit Vacation, just on vacation with his family.

It's filed under Ramrod, Plane.

Nevermind, I'll have the local chapter pick up your card.

180.5 hours of credit. Actual block is 48. 18 days off.
Just curious about where the non-block credit is coming from.

Definitely not normal. Brought my 2015 average monthly credit to 115/month.

FWIW still equates to less than industry average.

Would have hit 200hrs but passed on a JA. Vacation with the family

****should be 183, I'm missing two days of MUP
You sold vacation and worked a JA over it? And what's MUP? Just genuinely curious about soft time and how it worked out in this particular case.

If I were a manager and read Lobaeux's post, I'd think you were getting a pretty good deal.
Yeah.. Those dirty socialists. A group of people working together for workers rights and stuff. Kind of like a un... Oh never mind.

I'm obviously not a fun of the un.... BUT
Since they are here, and I'm paying them, they may as well do their job.

Socialists are always better at collecting money than handing it out, so the logical position would be to minimize their position.

There are plenty of non union 135, 91 and even a few 121 carriers that you could go work for. Just think of it, you could negotiate your own contract and live the libertarian dream!

Except that your beloved "association", unlike all other true unions is ok with someone with 30 years experience starting at the bottom. In our case for 37.50/hr. Companies don't care because it's pass/fail. FAA doesn't care as long as planes don't fall out of the sky. In this highly regulated industry there is no way to differentiate yourself (just like the socialists like it) therefore there are only two types of airline pilot. Those with knee pads and those without.
