    Envoy has worsening quality of life; ****ty schedules and the worst reserve system in the industry. If Envoy is a great success story, it's only for those managers who collect big bonuses.

    Long call/short call (sc paid higher min guarantee), no minimum report time, and no airport STBY. Those are basic. In addition, not assignable within the last 2 hours of the end of your RAP, not assignable after 6 hours into your RAP on the last day, and ability to designate a block of golden days off each month. How's that for starters?

    Pipe dream. I would hope this would happen one day. However, the Reich Chancellor's office doesn't think it's necessary. Bodies come in the door, bodies go to work. He has no incentive to treat said bodies any better.

    Maybe so but there is no justifying reserves being treated like indentured servants.

    That's so imbedded in our culture. I once had Eric Rehm put his finger in my face and tell me "We own your flying hours."

    When he did it he was still the assistant Chief. Needless to say there wasn't any respect directed toward him, I'm sure it was mutual.

    Funny enough though when my relative passed he got me and my family home very quickly. It was right before he flowed. I saw him at the training center and went over to thank him for that. I was surprised that he wouldn't look me in the eye. Only down at his shoes the entire conversation. I thought that was very telling.

    Thanks for all the good news Dacuj, it certainly will warm my heart all next month every time I get woken up by crew scheduling at 4am for 6am airport standby. Back on reserve after finally holding a line for the last 3 months. But things are just getting better and better around here, aren't they?

    CRJ ORD should be fun. Only 9 FOs on reserve. Only 29 CA on RSV (down from nearly 60).

    Not sure where you are getting your information but it's not entirely accurate. True, we had fewer conversions but there were also other pot sweeteners that brought us up to the same level.

    Fewer conversions would be a GOOD thing.

    What about standby reserve? Without getting rid of that it is not possible to be at the same level. Same goes for having a 2 hr report time.
