Alright, keep eatin' that sandwich.The company and union have both already said why the money is coming as a bonus and not a wage increase. "Business decisions relating to other DCI airlines" I.e. we can't show any contractual improvements until we use your contract to squeeze SkyWest and ExpressJet.
You've been at XJ/9E since at least 2005 if you flew the Avro and worked under MAIR Holdings, you just downgraded, and you still take these folks at their word? How many broken promises over the years? 9E CRJs coming in '05, ASA 900s coming in '08, more jobs and better pay in '10, SSP - then ETD. I empathize with your plight, but I wouldn't trust those folks with my Tupperware.
I'm sure they have offered that explanation - but putting the squeeze on SKW and XJT is not mutually exclusive of winding down 9E operations.
I'd imagine SKW and XJT are probably soon to be the largest CRJ200 operators in the DAL system, if they aren't already. Why would DAL then transfer 9E 200s to ARW, an operator with higher costs?
