Re: Open the door, no thanks

Or, we're all sick and tired of the constantly changing Covid rules and advice, half of us are out of work, we're all a bunch of blowhards, and this just happens to be a rather divisive issue. That's the biggest problem. Constantly changing. Nobody has a target, nobody has a plan, nobody can make a...

Re: AC pilot salaries now?

I don't disagree that ACPA could have done better and often lets us down - we were too quick to run to the rescue again and be the first to give - but you seem to (mis)direct your rage all around and be offended by everyone. Not only do you get your facts wrong you also seed division with your comme...

Re: Open the door, no thanks

And never forget - 73% of statistics are made up on the spot. I don’t believe you. Einstein said never to believe anything you read on the internet. The first “internet” was built in 1983, Albert Einstein died in 1955. Maybe you’re talking about another Einstein. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Ds3xRjK...

Whatever happened to the planned MAX Captain reductions in August? That would require a bid. Does the current MOA supersede that?
What was it? 10 from each base in the 737 MOA? The last bid has multiple times that in reductions. ThEMe 737 MOA is toast now anyway.

Re: Open the door, no thanks

Where Marxism failed in the 20th century was that it grasped on to class, in the new post modern Marxist drive they grasp on to identity and intersectionality. The "useful idiots" as you say eat it up. Make no mistake that China and Russia are having a good laugh watching the unraveling of the West....

I'd call and push back if you're healthy. Explain they have the wrong impression of your build and health. I had Transport come at me once about 15 years ago, a month or two after a medical where my BP rang slightly over 120. I'm a football player, athletic type build at +/-200lbs. The guy at Transp...

Sure, whatever. I have 10 years to think about coming back to wj (if it lasts), retain my seniority, and not worry about my job being contracted out to Swissport. You are subject to the CLC and will probably never work for wj again. But hey, the union is horrible.
Well said.
