I'm unfamiliar with LUAL bidding, but it sounds like there will not be secondary displacements now. Where these Seattle pilots ask to go will be published and then there will another displacement bid for those seats?

They can go anywhere their seniority can hold, which means systemwide. They can all hold Guppy Captain.

It's done under 8-E of the UPA which of course applies to both l-CAL and l-UAL. In short, yes the pilots being displaced will go wherever their seniority can hold and then the company would have to determine if a surplus/overage/whatever they call it exists after the dust settles. With 12 CAP and 22 FO positions being displaced it shouldn't be to big of a ripple.

You cannot be displaced out of your BES unless you receive a letter informing you of your displacement...like these gentlemen in SEA just received. Depending on where these gents choose to go, there may or may not be a secondary displacement. If there is, there will be letters sent out to the affected pilots in BES, and they will be asked to submit bids. Depending on where those gents go, there may or may not be a tertiary displacement. In any case, you cannot be bumped from your position if your BES is not part of a displacement. Hope that answers your question.

Yes or no depending upon where the pilots bid and the attrition that Manpower "Planning" (cough) expects in those subsequent categories.

Considering the seniority of the entire SEA base , I'd suspect those pilots will end up in fleets/seats where there will be substantial movement from retirements anyway.

IMHO, we can all consider this a warm-up exercise for CLE.

Thanks. No worries until you get a displacement notification.

CLE only has 215 members in the little flying club now. What's that 6-7 months of retirements? I think we are committed there till 2015 but it should not cause too much disruption, except for the RJ types.
