So much for a smooth base opening transition. And yes I'm bitching cause reserve doesn't pay very well, especially for commuters (forced to commute I might add)
    Yep this is exactly what the company said WOULDNT happen. I guess it's DFW's turn to get Envoyed!!

    Quality of life isn't very important to company men. At the open houses and recruiting events, they spout words like flow AA, flow, bonus', flow and upgrade. In all of this. It's the lack of admitting that there is any suffering to the moral or quality of life to the pilot group. They will never admit that elephant in the room, because to admit it would only hurt their bottom line. They would tell you that leaving for another airline is stupid, because again it hurts their bottom line. To get into recruiting is much the same as to work for Mr Goebbles himself. Repeat the lies enough until they become true.

    Just proves what a bunch of ignorant, whiny crybabies a lot of you here are. You get a brand new premium base and find something to whine about. And you wonder why the company doesn't go out of its way to do other nice and beneficial things for you. Such BS.

    Just proves you have absolutely zero concern for QOL.

    It's actually used, and not brand new. We've had it once before.

    You do realize this entire post is a windier version of the classic sentiment "the beatings will continue until morale improves", yes ?

    It's funny too you claimed I divide the pilots here when you subsequently demonstrate that's impossible when they are hopelessly enjoined by your demeaning alienation.

    What is the difference between a regular base and a "premium" base?

    Sounds like Republic ditched AA to devote all resources to United. Every time a feeder cut ties with AA, we end up opening a base. Ouch!

    "In fact, the last 2 years demonstrate a shrinking mainline fleet at the expense of a growing regional one (while they have pilots anyway)."

    You are correct, and it will get better or should I say "a lot more interesting?" Hope ya'll flow before 2021.

    Crybaby? Cause I'm complaining that we're dropping down to 50 lines? How many lines did we have a year ago? I'm sorry I'm not super happy about going back to reserve. Your out of touch. The fact that you immediately attacked us for asking about it instead of spinning it to a positive that we all suspected you would do just proves how much if a prick you are.

    But we have a new PREMIUM base. Whatever that means...Pay no attention to DFW losing half of its lines and the inevitable TDY that's forthcoming. You have a premium base and flow. How can you possibly complain about anything?

    Exactly....how is a Miami base a "premium" base for those living/base in DFW? Plus be excited for a flow still at 12+ years and being metered. Yea I am excitied.......

    His refusal to acknowledge ANY of the negatives here proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that he's not a line pilot.
    Ignoring said issues only adds to the divisiveness that he blames on those who mention anything other than the positives of working here.

    Agreed. That's been blatantly obvious from the beginning. Anyone that brushes aside concerns of a base losing nearly half its lines as "whining" is no line pilot.

    Yup, just as I thought. All of you 10 percenter haters coming out of the woodwork. Can't ever be happy with anything. Oh, I'm a line pilot all right. Just SA right now. Been bringing good info here just to get the same old tired responses from people too bitter to recognize a good thing.

    So if you're a line pilot, would you be okay with losing half of the lines in your base?

    Hey man I'm happy at my job for the most part. If I wasn't I would go elsewhere. But going down to 50 lines when a year or two ago we had 300?( fact check cause I'm guessing) is a pretty huge hit. But hey keep attacking people cause it's obviously working.

    Dacuj- sorry bro, you are way out of touch with reality. We all want great things for Envoy! We aren't complaining that we have flow. We complain that our QOL sucks! Your personal attacks and "10%" comments are unprofessional and childish. We all are aware of our used MIA opening backbup! Yippie, great news. Mean while DFW suffers. It's not a complaint or people bitching. It's the reality of it all. I've been here 10 years. According to your math I should be an FO at AA right? No, my **** QOL at Envoy will continue for another year before I'm suppose to flow. You can keep posting good news and be optimistic, but be real about the whole deal. Use your SA and make better schedules. QOL sucks here. fix that and we can be happy for our remaining sentence at Envoy. It also helps bring in the fresh meat as well.
