Are y'all allowing Part 135 to ride in the back with company badge and certificate and medical?
How often are there problems with 135 jumpseating?
Is it somewhat reliable?
thanks for the help.

jumpseat

Just jumpseated with them today. no problems. I work for Air Wisconsin and while we have a reciprocal agreement with them for some reason we were not in the computers so the agent just let me go talk to the captain. So I think it is pretty much up to each captain. They have always been very accomodating in the past. Good luck

Wow! That came out written half retarded.
I am concerned about whether they allow Part 135. I have had problems in the past, even with a letter.

Now that everyone is sitting in the back most captains don't really care. With all those fancy locks on the doors we can't even figure how to get into flight deck ourselves.

We will gladly take 135 as long as your attitude is pleasant and your paperwork is in order. scab pilots like turbo up above need not apply

I guess when I fly your routes next week you better not ask for a jumpseat on my airplane. Lighten up guy, be very careful.

If I should light up then you should smart up. I am not the one who sold out his profession by crossing a picket line. You were.

You can call me a scab, spit in my face, and even be a real jerk but I will welcome you in my jumpseat because you are a fellow pilot. Be careful, there are a lot of captain's out there that arn't as nice as I am. Remember there are over 5300+ of us out there, all are employed and most hold administrative and check pilot positions. This is a small industry and you obviously have a lot to learn. I will leave it at that.

I guess I am confused here. Does that mean the non rEAL pilots at Air Tran (read scabs) will only carry scabs?

I've heard everything now. Air Tran pilots carrying scab lists.

Speaking of scab pilots......your airline can only function with scab wages and work rules. Maybe that has contributed to DAL's 1 Billion dollar loss for the last 2Q's?

easy guys

As a fairly new AirTran pilot, myself and others like me are the future of AirTran and we are not scabs. The only guys that even talk about scabs around here probably don't really know anything about it anyways. I am to young to really know anything about it, so I can't pretend to be in a position to judge those guys.

I haven't flown with anyone carrying a scab list. We'll let just about anyone jump-seat.

As for the effect our "scab-pilot" wages are having on Delta's financials, I hope Boeingman and his buddies enjoy their huge salaries while their junior pilots are broke and on the streets.

Don't waste your time with "Boeing Man". He doesn't have a clue what he's talking about.

Anyone with a copy of the AirTran seniority list could plainly see that most of the guys flying captain here were too young to even hold an ATP when Eastern went under, yet BoeingMan refuses to let himself be convinced by mere facts.

Sure, there are a fair number of Eastern scabs here, and even more guys who were Eastern pilots who weren't scabs.

If you want to start a string about how well the Delta pilot group cares for its pilot brethren by furloughing its own and scoping its wholly-owned, I am sure there will be many pilots who will like to weigh in on that.

I guess all the furloughees working at Home Depot and the Comair and ASA guys delivering pizzas are really "upholding the profession, Hmmm?"

Listen up on the freq. before opening your pie-hole, "Boeing Man".

I rest my case.


The point of your diatribe is?

EAL scabs and EAL strikers they are all working together and enjoying life. They have put it to rest, the whole thing is sacred ground, so let it rest in peace.
