Is there any concern/talk at rouge that as it grows and more senior pilots are forced off mainline positions and into LCC CA positions that existing LCC guys with lower seniority will be forced out of the left seat and into a different position? There are many holding CA positions at rouge that can't at mainline.
Yes, ACPA pilots bid equipment on a seniority based system and if there are reductions then people can be bumped out of their spots.
No sure where you get your information, or what you define as "many" but there is currently 1 captain at LCC that could not hold a mainline captain spot.
Are you getting some joy out of posting speculation as fact?
It's not speculation, but fact that:
There are 50 LCC 319 CA in YYZ that cannot hold equivalent mainline positions. (71% of the list)
There are 13 LCC 319 CA in YVR that cannot hold equivalent mainline positions (81% of the list)
Check your CMSC 14-01A review.
rouge might be your short term solution for WAWCON but have you done the math to see your career earnings difference between waiting a couple of years for the mainline position as opposed to accepting reduced wages earlier now? It's ok if you haven't. Most didn't. If you willingly bid rouge, your grandfathering rights are gone.
