Re: How to get rid of ACPA?

Interesting, pilots4change has the support of a few NEM and LEC members running in the coming elections. If they are advocating and supporting this group and want to things change and are ON THE INSIDE what the @#$! is going on within ACPA that would make them potentially be alienated by the rest o...

Re: COVID MOA 2

I have to say you guys are all nuts. This is a great deal. The Furloughs stay at 600 and 80 get recalled immediately. Someone on flat pay gets 75 credits guaranteed. And others 67 ish (that's up from 55 credits across the board from MOA #1) .. like jesus its great so fortunate we were able to negot...

Re: COVID MOA 2

BTD, Fair point. I would guess that the 6 month term of this MOA will cover a period of very reduced flying hours. I suppose that if the flying miraculously picks up, we could not extend it March 1 2021. Cheers Unfortunately we don’t make that decision. The MEC does. Note point 38 of the MOA. This ...

Re: COVID MOA 2

I get the initial hesitation but codeshares are long term ventures that likely won't have any bearing in a 6 month window. The market Rouge targets is severely depressed and likely will be for a long time. Even if they did expand Rouge, it would be curtailed at the end of the 6 month agreement. I g...

Re: COVID MOA 2

The original AC crew still get paid like they flew the trip, but the costs are way lower. Maybe or maybe not. Depends on the DBMs and how far out they planned it. Say it is February and DBMs would have been 73 for fleet x, but they have offloaded a bunch of flying to LH so DBMs are actually 65. No ...

Re: COVID MOA 2

Unlimited expansion of rouge... (transat?) or anything else they decide. Further expansion of code shares. When the company knows they already exceed the scope limits, why are we even thinking of the idea of rouge expansion? I get the initial hesitation but codeshares are long term ventures that li...

Re: COVID MOA 2

So, with the new MOA out, what is the consensus? It seems we either have to protect the junior jobs and give up scope or roll the dice. Since the company is already in violation of scope, why would the NC even consider bringing this to the membership. What’s the point of saving something if there i...

That is wrong.

Regardless of your views on down line implications. This is 100% a let on scope. Not all scope. Not the scope we usually think about in terms of CPA carries. But it is a let on article 1. Read 1.02.01.

Re: How to get rid of ACPA?

The difference is the pilot group agreeing to the scope let this time. When the company continues to violate it at the end of the six months it becomes much harder to argue against in arbitration when you have validated the precedent. It bears further scrutiny.

Re: How to get rid of ACPA?

You may not agree with RippleRock, but consider what he is saying closely. When the company continues to go above and beyond that scope provision after the end of MOA 2 and it is grieved and taken to arbitration (scope is already being violated Right now) you have shot yourself in the foot when maki...

Re: Future Career

If you truly want it , don’t give up. But have realistic views. The industry is not what it was 7 months ago. If you aren’t currently in the industry, Jazz will not be your next step. Plan on doing what many generations before did. Head to somewhere you may not otherwise go and get a flying job you ...

Re: 220 Pilots, what are you thoughts so far??

I usually saw the max down around 2000 kg an hour average. It was more at the beginning of the flight when heavy, but when light it would drop down.

Re: Nolinor Aviation Starts New Airline

I don’t believe it does. That is ADS C works in the middle of the ocean. Although your ADS B could be communicating with other ADS B capable aircraft nearby. ADS B needs satellite navigation (gps) for position, but then uses transponder and ground stations to pass that to ATC. Your information is n...

Re: Nolinor Aviation Starts New Airline

Maybe ADS C? It uses satellite.

ADS B uses mode S transponder and ground stations that doesn’t require radar. Although ADS B does require GPS for position determination.

There were reductions on the last bid. I’m sure that the argument could be made that those reductions have occurred already.
