    2015 Pilot Discussion.

      With the A350 deliveries being yet again deferred, I really doubt that any A350 simulator will end up on AA property at any training facility.  Doug and Scooter, I think, are trying desperately to wiggle out of the A350.  If they can find some outfit to purchase the slots, there will be no...

    In today's Jetwire:   "Three days until the State of the Airline. On Friday, July 22, CEO Doug Parker will discuss the company’s second quarter financial results at the State of the Airline meeting and webcast..."   I magine the timing of this was intended to coincide with the loss of my...

    "Outspoken" UAL Pilot - Company Investigating

    MD-80 life extension

      Haven't watched Crew News from this past week.  Surely some whiney Super 80 pilot....or is that SUPER WHINY 80 pilot....got up to ask for the umpteeth time if the company would keep those Long Beach Lawn Darts a bit longer (so they wouldn't have to flunk EFIS school.)   I think Scooter did the...

    2015 Pilot Discussion.

      I would send a comment back through a member here, but I honestly don't know who anyone is (except Captain SAN with his ideal retirement life, and Traitor)!  Over the years a few people have identified themselves to me, but I promptly forgot who is who.   But I come across a fair number of...

      I do have plenty to keep me busy.  NONE of it has anything at all to do with airplanes!

    2015 Pilot Discussion.

      It does take a bit of getting used to.  But once you've established a routine, it is a fairly comfortable way to work.  Almost invariably the F/Os I fly with who could hold a 320 Captain seat are hesitant to bid it simply because of quality of life issues.  They take a look at the 320 trip...

      Thanks for the invite, but I will be gone from the board on my 65th birthday.   I will certainly keep in touch with my good friends that have a "dog in the fight" to find out how things went.

        Had my last jump seat ride today.  I am not unhappy, though.   Deny away, westholes!

      It's not your seat until I LET YOU HAVE IT!      (Well, until the government forces me to give it to you.  Socialist!)

      If your speculation is correct and the company is happy with the list, AA will go forward.  Lawsuits?  They will file their own and yet again get a judgement for damages from the APA, and this time also from the pockets of the westholes.  The company will prevail with a restraining order as we...

      I heard an East-based leak; I got it third person and have no idea who the actual primer leaker is.   It corroborates what has been conjectured here and the fact that the westholes are so silent.  No Nic.  It is closest to the East proposal.   Time for everyone to move on.     Me?     Time for...

      Seriously?  That's what you get out of this?  We're all rolling on the floor laughing at you, and you read that as desperation?   If you 'fess up before you're caught on a random drug test, the company will send you free-of-charge to rehab to get off of whatever it is you are obviously on.

    Young girl groped on AA flt.

      One would have to see the text of the company policy describing the job responsibilities of the flight attendants.  If immediate action in an incident like this is part of the job description, then it would be a job failure and might merit discipline.  If the flight attendant were to be sued...

    Young girl groped on AA flt.

      I agree.  But AA won't miss the money, and the lawyers will get 80% plus fees and expenses.

      And a few of those junior to him on furlough from AWA came East, took advantage of the HUGE East attrition and are now flying the A330 and far out-earning EVERY Fish-Bowl-based F/O.  Truly brilliant, CB.  Give us some more cut-and-paste ancient history  (like anyone at all is even reading it)...

    MD-80 life extension

      I think Kirby (or Isom, maybe?) said something to that effect at one of the Crew News sessions.  The death of the Mad Dogs will get a temporary reprieve because Republic can't find pilots to fly their airplanes and AA cannot afford to lose the lift.

      Thanks for the kind words.   Actually, I have shared the cockpit with a westie!  At least some of them that ended up on furlough (after AOL and their leadership sold them short) took positions on the east list at new hire seniority.  It only too this pilot a few years to get a F/O slot on the...
