That's crossing a line IMO.
That's very common terminology in Laguardia

Re: Sky Regional Pilot Contract

Rudder, you posted the Jazz pay scale based on 85 hours a month. That's not guaranteed, I believe the guarantee is 75 hours or blocking average whichever is higher.

Re: Sky Regional Pilot Contract

Good post Maxpwr. I find it pretty funny that regionalrat can come on here and throw a tantrum about how bad Sky is and provide false "Facts" and everyone praises him for his honesty and refreshing candor. Try coming on here and complaining about Jazz and you'll receive a thorough bashing. Jazz is f...

Re: Attn. All Jazz VSP'ers, Resigned, Retired etc.

Ditto for me, I owe about $250.

You gotta love the government, we have to pay interest on a debt that didn't exist at the time the interest started to accumulate.

Re: 2014 payrates

The pay rates are on this forum somewhere. I think Georgian was $70k base and anything over 75 hours was at an hourly rate. Sky was $52k- $55k base plus around $25 an hour for all flying with a guarantee of 65 hours. In either case you'll be making mid to high 80's. Better than any Jazz FO in terms ...

Re: May 1 startup day Air Georgian

Yes Avpride, but you have to understand in essence you are taking the Jazz guys jobs away from them. Can you blame them from feeling a bit pissed? You can say all you want about having to look for work, needed a job, gonna take what comes your way, yadda yadda yadda but in essence you ARE taking th...

Re: May 1 startup day Air Georgian

P.S As a 7 year Jazz FO, I make a total income including pension and per diems(you included yours) of aproximately 96,000.00, without overtime, working an average of 14 days per month I'd love to see the math on that. I was once a 7 year Jazz FO and I did work overtime, quite a bit actually and I b...

Re: May 1 startup day Air Georgian

This just proves that the supply and demand theory didn't always stand. There is a huge supply of qualified pilots to fly these q400s. They obviously had better opportunities, thus supply and demand working. Westjet needed to adjust to attract pilots. I'm pretty sure these guys didn't remain unempl...

Re: May 1 startup day Air Georgian

It's very easy stinky. If I make 100k right now flying a crj and an offered 110k a year to fly a 747 in the same seat, would I take it? Frog no. I don't even have to tell you why. But according to you, it would make economical sense because it's more. But you kill our industry taking that job. Some...

Re: May 1 startup day Air Georgian

I am just curious Avpride and have one simple question. At what point (salary-wise) would you turn down the CRJ capt job? Would be interested in hearing your answer. I'd say the answer is pretty simple, it's when it no longer makes economic sense for him. Just like everyone else you look at your ex...

Re: May 1 startup day Air Georgian

The GGN RJ side is essentially a start up. He's gaining 705 airline time, something a lot of corporate guys are missing. Depending on his goals, RJ PIC time for a 705 operator can be significantly more important than time on a corporate jet. Maybe AC doesn't care if you have a mix of Dash SIC and so...

Re: May 1 startup day Air Georgian

I find it hilarious that guys here are actually suggesting it would have made more sense for Avpride to go sit in the right seat of a Jazz Dash than go left seat in a regional jet for one of the new startups. At jazz you are guaranteed to sit in the right seat forever, it's pretty much a certainty i...

Re: May 1 startup day Air Georgian

I'm only 2.5 years in at Jazz and make about $65,000 before overtime. And I can say that I didn't sell my soul or sell out my profession to get to where I am. I can look in the mirror and be proud of the uniform I wear and of the Jazz pilots that came before me to make it an excellent place to work...

Re: 2014 payrates

Keep in mind that if you don't currently work at Jazz with many years of service under your belt the captain pay rates are meaningless since you'll never see them. Top pay for someone currently off the street is $75.03, that's it, EVER! Sky, Georgian and Encore will see upgrades so your earning pote...

Re: Renegotiating with Air Canada

It remains to be seen what the Eagle pilots actually accomplished, other than put themselves in the unemployment line. The planes are going to a lower cost operator. The U.S. carriers have found the bottom, minimum wage is what a pilot is worth, or was. The tables have turned since the majors have b...

Re: Renegotiating with Air Canada

Many of the regionals in the U.S. undercutting one another are ALPA members, it doesn't stop them from bidding against one another.

Re: Renegotiating with Air Canada

This Embraer announcement is huge news for Jazz, just what my high level connections were telling me. ACPA should open up the scope in the next couple of weeks in exchange for some other goodies. Jazz needs to decide on the new contract, 10% wage cut across the board for the E190's and the classic D...

Re: Shoot me down

The thing about the US regionals is that the mainline union agreements limit outsourcing to airframes below a cetain MTOW, and thus to RJs and props Isn't that pretty much what we have here. You have roughly the same mix of regional flying down there, Republic and Compass I believe fly 175's, other...
