The point is that there are 2 or 3 FA's that post regularly in the pilot thread but have pointedly told pilots to stay out of FA issues and this thread in particular. While I recognize that this thread discusses issues of importance to FA's, the tentative does take a benefit away from pilots. You can be sure that if a pilot tentative is ever reached and it takes something away from FA's, those 2 or 3 will be among the first to comment about it and won't care that it's a "pilots" thread.
Well, a point well taken. Of course I tried to post in the pilot thread a couple of times, but I guess I don't have thick enough skin. I tried to share ideas and my thought as a non pilot observer but it seems if you don't take a position you just can't play there. I happen to feel personally that there is some merit in both sides to their argument. Neither party wishes to hear that though. As soon as you suggest such you are accused of treason!
As far as taking this away from the pilots, I had pointed that out. I really think the flight attendant union could have went to the pilots early on and discussed this. They dropped the ball.
That is why I said it is an important. It is something that the flight attendants should take into account as a whole. However, They do have many other considerations. I am afraid this issue might not even be taken notice of by some with the exception of a few here.
