Re: Layoffs

What happens to flight attendants is a completely different ball game to pilots. Only one of them can be re-trained in an afternoon of operating door handles. True, but it appears they’ll get EI, health benefits, and travel benefits. I doubt any pilot that gets lay off notice will get that. Seems l...

Re: Everyone’s talking about it...

In theory, yes. However things aren't as they were 2-3 years ago. Pilots taking 2-3 attempts to pass the PIC (whereas it was a one and done for a long time) and many FO's upgrading and just scraping through. Sure they meet the "minimum" but that minimum was based on past experiences and the type of...

Re: Jazz to launch pay for type rating program

Oh great. Is he going to try to mentor people in the flight deck? I thought the 10% would work! Based on looking at the new hire bios from time to time and seeing some faces I hoped I'd never see again, the %10 certainly isn't working. In fact it's somehow working backwards as some of the best FOs ...

Re: Jazz to launch pay for type rating program

Word around Jazz is that captianKirk (the mentor guy and youtube one) is going to mainline AC.It makes sense, considering that he's removed his "regional pilot pay" video. I wonder if he's gonna be financially better off, at approximately 50% less than what he was making at Jazz...good luck. Can't ...

I actually think it’s quite nice for the new hire to not be forced to use their WB FO course right in PIT.
unfortunately 1 person in the mentioned PIT did have to.
