It's a new year. Have at it.

luvthe9 said:It would have gone a long way in building a better relationship if Scott Kirby contacted APA and said something like, “I understand this is an important issue to pilots, and it’s just plain wrong for management to require pilots to work three days and get paid for only two. I know it’s going to result in higher costs, but I’m the president of the largest, most profitable airline in the world, and I’m going to do the right thing treat my pilots as such, value the time they spend away from their families, and agree to this new rig.” Instead, Scott Kirby chose to simply say no.
Gotta love the guy in the video David Arnett...Moved to Australia just FIVE years ago from LA and already he has an Australian accent..Imagine that! At his age getting an accent that quick.dariencc said:Ok, I'll get it started with a golden oldie. For auld lang syne.
I'd gently suggest a modicum of caution greet us this new year dariencc, lest the "battle" tested and "valor" saturated "knights" of "sparta" again directly ask the CEO how best to "turn in" any of their "fellow pilots" they've ever a beef or disagreement with.
A belated Happy New Year to you and yours sir!
Point taken. On that note, we should remind ourselves where the "most dangerous flying in the world" takes place, and it has nothing to do with actual combat operations. While viewing the linked video, please remember to remove your cover.
Silence and respect.
Got some skinny on the DFW meet today.
Feel just a tad optimistic that the majority might correctly vote NO now.
Around 450 attended for a 300 capacity room.
Initially the feeling was the room slightly favored a yes vote.
By meeting end the yes voters seemed to be few.
Bravo dfw brothers/sisters!!
Bottom line viewpoint.......11 or so months of additional W2 were completely inadequate to compensate for this joke of an offer.
Methinks this APA BOD finally realized who they slipped in bed with.
Now to get the East on board........all I can do is hope.
Hopefully most of the east realizes after getting LOA93 and that POS MOU won't make the same mistake, I hope.
