    Why does he choose to ignore the poor quality of life issues for eagle pilots

    On the last month the 824 flows, will they combine the 824 and PP group in one month? Or will they finish the 824, and start the PP group next month?

    What I took away:

    Not interested in PBS right now since ALPA isn't, doesn't want a fight. (Same as the union is saying.) He thinks it'd be good for pilots!!! Hahaha)

    No word from AAG on flying for 2018 but in his best GUESS, he could see them wanting an ORD 175 base early next year. Thinks ORD 145 will follow his earlier predictions, doesn't foresee closure

    AAG approaches every month with flying that someone else can't do. 140s are already being pulled from SJT to be added to the fleet. Hopes for growth but depends on hiring, says they need 650 this year.

    Says AAG has been telling them MIA would only be 6 airplane and they don't know if it'll be for more than a month or two...meanwhile we've had 10 planes worth of flying for almost 2yrs. Wouldn't get into specifics of "displacement negotiations"...says if AAG asks for a new base, envoy will go

    They're going to try to be in a position to go after the LAX flying/Compass 175s when the contract opens, he thinks their contract is up 2019 sometime.

    PP flow will not exceed 25, max total for next year would probably be around 275 depending on AA hiring and %s

    Upgraded FADECs for LGA...AAG still hasn't approved them, envoy keeps asking. New FMSs will slowly start making their way into aircraft late summer.

    LGA crew room was getting very uncomfortable without AC. Said he's looking for additional space there to spread out. Construction outside is causing issue getting some stuff inside fixed. Wifi could be soon, just need to figure out wiring.

    ORD crew room plans keep changing. Current crew room has had plans drawn up, but "structural issues", possibly dealing with sprinklers needing to be moved. Plans were stopped as moving the crew room to L was a legit rumor, but that isn't the case anymore so back to trying to figure out a plan.

    I complained about JMs on OT days, as well as multi-turn JMs. He said if they're JMing it means they need pilots. I reiterated the complaint of having already come in on a day off and then getting JM'd, especially into a RSV day where you get no true reward and he said he hadn't thought of that specific scenario.

    Schedules are based on the flight file and basically said same thing we hear from the scheduling committee...everyone's trying to get a better flight file, but they get what they get is what I took from it.

    Finish 824 first then send p.p. over next month. If p.p. is older than 824 pilot the the p.p is senior at aa over the 824.
    Make sense.

    So max 25? Didn't think it could be less once the 40th 175 is here in July.

    If they junior man they need pilots. If someone shoots you it means they don't like you. Way to state the obvious rich. You should have told him that's not my problem.

    So, in summary - SS,DD. I'm shocked. When's Dacuj going to come and tell us Rick is wrong, we're flowing 40/month, getting bases everywhere, hundreds of airplanes and it's nothing but high cotton now boys!

    I heard this rumor may have some validity. Apparently, some are saying cockroaches have infested certain areas of the ORD crew room hence the addition of more legs in new areas.

    Instead of constantly coming here foaming at the mouth about this place, why not direct some positive energy into your current situation? You are getting an unplanned 8% raise working for the largest major airline in the world.

    I've chosen to be overwhelmingly positive about Envoy and have been proven right over the course of the previous 6 months in doing so. Seems that you have only been proven wrong regarding your negative views of what is happening at Envoy.

    Troll statement that doesn't even make sense.

    Your getting an 8% raise when you flow in 5-6 more years, oh wait rick just said their metering to 25.

    So 8% raise when you flow in 7-10 years, either of which is well beyond 2019 when they are opening up section 6 negotiations and the main point is pay and QOL.

    I'm questioning you being of good sound mind. Who's getting a pay raise? Outside of our check airman. I assume you meant them.
    This guy isn't even a troll. Just a delusional jack a$$.

    Nothing wrong with being positive, it's your tendency to add too much B.S. to your optimism. Why not expend more energy into honesty as opposed to salesmanship and crock****ery ?
