Yet neither you nor I have any idea how an individual would react during an interview to the situation mentioned.

You keep thinking that all you want. If you think for one minute this whole debacle will disappear like a fart in the wind you are seriously a great candidate to be a scab one day or would be one of the moronic Captains who would participate in a jumpseat war after so many for decades have fought for 121.547 and to not EVER use it asa tool or for political purposes. If you are a Skywest pilot or just a pilot who does not see the damage this either did or could have done you are truly not a guy I'd ever like to walk a picket line with or expect you to ever have my back in this profession.

Don’t forget about all the 135 and 91k non union pilots that also use KCM.

If it makes you feel better, everyone that I have talked to at SkyWest was upset about the UA jumpseat action, and none of the ones that I talked to were going to deny a jumpseat. They also would like to see SAPA replaced with ALPA, especially after the JS debacle, and some have decided to start pushing for ALPA on property and would like to see the current jumpseat chair replaced.

I’m not a SkyWest pilot. I was hired at United last year, but went to another carrier that was a better fit. I think United is a fine company, although as with anywhere else it has a few blowhards.

I strongly disagree with what SAPA did, I think it was foolish and naive. However, I don’t blame all SkyWest pilots, and the ones I have spoken with are very upset by the actions of SAPA. To now threaten an entire pilot group is really naive and juvenile.

I'm a simple FO and in the grand scheme of things, I don't agree with the way SAPA handled it either, I think i'm a nice person but I bet you're an absolute pleasure to fly with......


Future United hire * Please bid avoid*
