    Flexjet announces pay raises

    Admittedly a clickbait thread title in lieu of the announcement you guys are expecting but I felt the need to come and defend the memory an old colleague. Got a call from an buddy about the weekly email sent out yesterday about the welfare check they had to send out on no show pilot (who...

    The hit no one saw coming

    Ricci might just be the smartest man to have ever lived. Those individual employment contracts you're about to all sign will include two clauses. One will have you give up your right to class action. Each contract will be expressly individual. That means if he breaks a key component of the...

    Another perspective on the decert

    I know right now some of my old colleagues at Flexjet are disappointed. I've also heard some out of touch accusations from non Flexjet pilots targeted at union leadership but the numbers speak otherwise. In the last 2 years Flexjet lost 150ish pilots, most of them union leaning. In addition...

    Bigger than NetJets

    Kenn Ricci claims his goal in 5 years is to be bigger than Netjets while also declaring the pilot shortage does not exist in the fractional world. I'm willing to be fair. His plans for customer and airframe acquisition sound spectacular. I'm all for it. The problem is in no world does more...

    I regret signing a decertification card.

    That's the phrase I'm hearing more and more these days. The more and more I talk to people, the more it seems people are changing their minds about Ole Frank and his boys. Frank letting the cat out of the bag his decertification efforts and subsequent Gulfstream placement was merely part of...

    Union Christmas Present: MCBA retroactively in effect

    I have no doubt 99% of credit for the victory here goes to the IBT leadership but I can't help what wonder which one of the several huge mistakes management has made lately was the tipping point they are hoping gets lost in the hustle? Was it Big Dummy's slip that confirmed management collusion...

    A subset of social engineering is the effort to influence particular attitudes and social behaviors on a large scale in order to produce a desired outcome or attitude in a target population. In the case of the workplace, employers often target particular keywords or concepts to engender...

    OneSky Management Stoops To A Brand New Low

    Just when I thought it wasn't possible for our management team to show new ways of depravity and disrespect to our pilot group, we get an email from RH proving me wrong. I know for a fact I'm not the only one who feels this way. For several days I've wrestled with saying anything about RH’s...

    Kenn Ricci's big middle finger to his pilots

    Days after making sure to secure substandard wages for his pilots in the foreseeable future, DAC chairman Kenn Ricci makes sure to underscore his inability to pay his pilots is not a matter of numbers but rather a disdain for his pilots and their union...

    MCBA thoughts

    What jumped out as your very first impressions? - - - Updated - - - Overnight Flops guys got huge pay raises, gained twice as much pto, won parking. Flex guys got a small bump in overall perdiem, lost pay if going to a fixed, and gained some additional preferred crew bases as related to...

    Logbooks Don't Lie

    I don't know a single pilot at Flexjet who isn't doing one of two things: planning their retirement or prepping their logbook. While I remain optimistic we might get something good out of this MCBA I have to also remain realistic we will probably not get anything. At least not anything good...

    Does Kenn Ricci qualify as a human trafficker?

    Ok well not really but it's an interesting comparison. My wife was telling me our church is doing a big push to provide resources/funding for a group that combats human trafficking. On some of the brochures she came home with it says sex trafficking is only a part; domestic servitude is...

    Fair Warning: The Ricci Umbrella Grows

    How much money do you want to bet the aviation scheduling software company Kenn accquired and mentioned in passing last year is the newly announced owner of our beloved forum? Follow the money and you'll never be wrong. Resilience may prove to be a bigger player in our lives than DAC will ever...

    Tricci Ricci Rides Again

    I'm very curious about management's recent push to expand the red label waiting list, including now weekly updates on the waiting list despite no movement into actual aircraft deliveries. Additionally, our company seems to be very good at creating fake news and awards to plump up the success of...

    Flexjet Scamagement Redefines Lying

    Word on the street is management proposed pay cuts and a flat 7/7 schedule to the arbritrator. Anyone from the union care to verify? What happened to management agreeing no one should lose anything? What happened to the promise Ricci loved Flexbid? I heard even Red Label will lose. I'm...

    Flexjet Scamagement Hits a New Low

    For the Mre and Warlords among us, I didn't want the latest schizophrenia to p*************** us by. If they are so happy with the constant court victories they are claiming why are they appealing them? If they are happy to give the affected pilots their VSP, why all the feet dragging?

    Onesky Management In The Twilight Zone

    Regarding JWs letter trumpeting a company victory in the lawsuit, I implore you to read the court documents and all materials (available on the VUH). Almost everything he stated is completely false and flies in the face of the facts and their own testimony, arguments and court filings. JW is...

    Union Leaders leave 1st White House meeting with Trump Absolutely Stunned!

    I hate to say it but I told you so. They said it was absolutely the best meeting with a US President EVER! That's right: EVER! It's all over Fox Business. Apparently just like he favors individual partnerships over TPP, he favors CBAs over regulations and government intrusion into work...

    Kenn Ricci thanks his employees with a video

    Or at least that was what I was led to believe I'd be watching. http://youtu.be/4RTkoq79H1E Instead it's just another not so subtle piece of self aggrandisement and promotional fluff.

    IBT-1108 sends letter to OneSky customers

    I applaud the move however I agree with the Yammer Jammers it will cost us business. But there is only one person to blame for that and it is Farquaad himself, King Ricci. He is the reason this has dragged on so long, so contentiously and is responsible for creating an environment our owners...
