    The MEC has established an ad hoc Fuel Committee. For several reasons it's more than just safety since there are legal and contract issues involved with "Captain Add". The committee needs feedback...

    The smart move for the company is to offer to buy Captain vacations first, and cancel Captain vacations last.

    As noted in the other thread, cancelling vacations is contractual. Every idiot pilot who voted "YES" on the past 3 contracts bears responsibility.

    While the flow is contractual too, there are...

    There are several factors involved before we'd start seeing vacations cancelled. These are a few:

    I'd expect so. Many pilots don't like seeing amber fuel gauges, but are afraid to say or do anything. A Fed in the jumpseat has a duty to his job and will do something about it.

    Unfortunately true. At the moment, this is all speculation. I was just pointing out the contract based on Training house discussions.

    FWIW, a friend in MIA said the Feds were interviewing pilots about airline safety and pilot pushing, especially regarding fuel. Has anyone seen this at other domiciles?

    The "carry charge" is 4% per 100 lbs of weight. 4% of 500 lbs is, indeed, about 21 pounds of fuel. Since a 145 burns 400 lbs/hour at idle, single engine/no APU and a 175 about 550 lbs/hour, that's...
