Disagree

I don't understand why people think they can commute to this job. We had one guy in my class that is trying ATL-PBI. Good luck. If you are looking to work at NetJets do yourself a favor and don't apply unless you live in a Domicile or will move to one. The sooner people start doing that the sooner we might get away from this stupid system.
No, if people move to their domicile and are happy we will NEVER get rid of this stupid Domicile program. If we keep training/typing guys and they leave 12-18 months later, THAT will hurt the company in the pocket. That is the ony way they "learn". No, I like it the way it now. Come to NJA, get the type and leave. Sounds harsh, but I think this will help the pilot group in the long run.

SAE....are you willing to make that commute after the next contract is ratified?
I don't plan on having to because i don't see a new contract being ratified without the same basing system for all, but the answer is, yes I would in order to assure a quality of life for my family that will make them happy.

That was DO-82's point. Would you be willing to continue with the domicile system under a new contract, because to get HBA for all, we're going to have to give up something - i.e., $$$$$$.

Rather commute than move to a Domicile. TEB, LAX, and PBI ... Can we think of any more crappier places to live for anyone who isn't a millionair.
Compton and Watts is still affordable, well 3 bedroom/1 bathroom. 1100 sq foot for under $500,000. The schools arent too bad, and it is close to the airport.

But, why would anyone move to one of these locations is the real possiblilty of HBA's for will be had during the next round?

After commuting for 7+years before getting an HBA all I can say is that I'm glad I didn't move.

I would love to get on with NetJets, but I refuse to commute due to the lack of j/s agreements! Had they still done the "gateway" syatem, my stuff would have been in 6 months ago! Bummer..............

I should of said that if you don't live in a current domicile, are willing to move to one, or live close enough to drive you shouldn't apply. When the pool of pilots dries up then something will have to give ie. the domicile system.

This is excatly why there will be no change in the current system until contract negotiations are over.

Do the math guys. If the domicile "chip" saves the company just 5% in salary increase at the bargaining table, that's enough money to pay for EVERY new hire this year quitting, and they would still be way head through the life of the next contract.

It is what it is unless they simply can't hire enough pilots. Even 30% walking after type won't hurt in the long run. There may be a few folks walking right now, but it's not even enough to matter let alone enough to turn the tables.

For pilots that were granted a HBA and wanted to move later on do they have to move within the 5 domiciles, or can they move where ever they like? Within the HBA guidlines.

Once awarded HBA, the only way a pilot could lose HBA is to accept reimbursement from the company to move to a domicile. At that point, the pilot would be locked into the domicile debacle. That's all under this contract, though: who knows what the future holds.
