Loss of incentive pay from our major partner says BH, but that didn't prevent SKYW Board from giving BH incentives and a huge increase in compensation.

Concessions? NO!

Please take away that awful All-Stars program away too. This company's award and recognition is completely out of touch. This award dinner thing has been corrupt for years. One guy gets his buddies to nominate him. Then, after he wins, he nominates those that nominated him. It is just a big circle jerk. Some of the people on that list are outstanding. But there are few I can't stand to fly with and I know I'm not the only one to think that.
Spot on.
In addition, get rid of that useless Mini Indy program.

No incentive pay 'casue we can't complete anything or even be A14.

Sounds like a pay rise for the leadership to me

I figured out why the company and the MEC are so out of touch with the pilot group, and why they ignore our pleas for fairness in compensation and reasonable work rules. It's simply because they have no idea what we do for a living, or they have forgotten. They do not live the lives we lead. They do not understand the grind, or they don't care. Well, I don't care either. Pay up bitches. No pay-No service

How did MB get on there? That guy is a giant a-hole
Almost every FO I fly with these days says he's one of the worst, if you're wondering how he got on there it might be his FA.....

MB is not one of the worst, just very full of himself and could care less that there's a person sitting in the seat to his right. pretty much doesn't acknowledge FOs, they're an inconvenience, but it's not worth calling off a trip because of him. As I recall he's not unsafe, just not fun to be around.

I have an idea: Give us the exact same contract as Skywest. If ExpressJet doesn't meet certain financial goals 12 months after signing they get replaced by the St. George management team and we begin a full merger.

Why should we take that concession just to reshuffle senior management while they still get their raises and a loophole riddled promise of a merger?

Who is MB? Is it a very very Sr dude?
Not super senior. Kinda blasé about not being a tool. Never seen without the perma-FA.

Good riddance to at least this one dumbarse idea from the cubicle dwellers.

Why don't you ask Brad why he pulled his son off the line to do a cushy job. A job no one has ever heard of.

The job's been around for a while. He also lost his youngest son in a plane crash. So why wouldn't he keep his one surviving son just a little bit closer to home. I'm just as pissed as everyone else, but give the guy some slack on the son thing.

I agree. No one deserves that kind of pain. There a line in the sand. Don't go there.
