I was not complaining. Unity is all the pilots have, lose that and it is a race to the bottom.

My thought was more alone the lines of reminding us of the history of the Killer B's. As companies hire, the demographics change and so does the collective consciousness. Float all boats, even when times get tough. In the future, it will be interesting to see if the compromises were the right answer. I'm just saying it is hard to get right.

2. How will junior pilots rule anything? If they're junior, that obviously implies there are senior pilots who will of course look after their own interests.

I'm not sure what you're complaining about... if this covid thing had happened 20 years ago, there would 30,000 pilots on the street in the US alone. Between uncle sugar and union creativity there are a lot of junior pilots getting pay and benefits to do nothing right now.
Iím thinking itís more of a generational difference as opposed to age.
