Re: Meanwhile... in the US pilots are still getting paid....

Also, Delta pilots are getting up to 59k in bonuses this year via spontaneous profit sharing. That's money they could have simply kept. Not true. It is 16% of their salary. You're right, from what I've just looked up with Delta it's contractual. I recently read an article about a US major that was ...

Re: Entire application process timeline?

As long as you don’t have the call for the GS consider you might be pfo’ed. Would seem like a lot of trouble on the part of Jazz HR to go that deep in to the process and PFO someone no? As mentioned throughout the process, successful completion of all steps does not guarantee you a position with Ja...

As of 7 days ago, January 1st, they have YoS.
So what are the FO/Captain rates until YOS 12?

Better wait till they actually dish out the YOS level compensation before saying that. It’s already 12 months overdue, there’s zero reason to have faith in this management.

What's the upgrade time for a guy OTS coming to mainline?
Hard to guess accurately with the new PTA just coming into effect and the fact nothing is constant in aviation. If
I had to bet on an approximate time frame I’d guess 10-11 years given current rates.
Do they have YoS?

That is good news for the ones getting hired that are already ATP! Do you know how long does it take to have the seniority to upgrade, as of now?
Well, do you think you'll be comfortable in flying/operating left seat of a Q after 6 months FO ?

Or get a Bose QC25 or 35 and the uflymike. That way when you are commuting you can plug into the back and only have to carry one headset.
This is an interesting setup, is it TC approved? I’m also looking into it and trade my A20 for this.
What about the battery? Do you need to charge every night?
