    At envoy, yes.
    MX keeps cost down by running the Mel's to the maximum time limit. This way they keep there expenses low while passing the bull to the line pillots to deal with.

    Word was psa did this this year by canabalizine envoy transferred 700's to keep psa aircraft flying, they did not have to order parts, kept there mx expenses low.

    Is it normal for some HI6 messages viewed in CCI to scroll clear across on only one line?

    Is it normal for a forum to be dominated by one blowhard ex employee who has developed a cult following among 12 total posters on the forum? Said blowhard doesn’t even work here and has been force retired for that matter.

    Is it normal to be hopelessly obsessed with someone who has a "cult following" of 12 Envoy pilots out of approximately 2,000 ? I realize that is 12 more then you have, so perhaps it's something more then just abnormal ? For that matter, is it normal to shamelessly accept being a fabulous fable and fantasy peddler in opposition to facts presented which do not assist on your agenda ? As for dominating this forum, it's interesting you single me out (again) when others have higher post counts per week/month like your alter-ego Dacuj.

    Seems to be a bit of bias in your assessment, no ? That's understandable though, considering your profession on this forum.

    Yes, if you frequent cat houses in Tijuana.

    Is it normal to be blown off over and over again by certain chief pilots over an important question that will affect your career but bet tons of harassing emails about frivolous things that affect nothing?

    Is it normal to be charged $25 for an "employee purchase", on my epays statement, when I haven't purchased anything in years? I noticed this today, and it also says ytd $400. What the heck!?!?

    I am assuming you are talking about the nef items generated by the cabin appearance inspectors.

    We would have to boost the mtx headcount by 10% to keep up with the numbers of write ups those guys produce.
    The planes aren’t new and the pax treat them like greyhound busses, so, there you go.

    Hmmm half of them were nef items but not even simple stuff like ptt buttons donít seem to be proactively fixed during long sits

    1600 Days and counting with no end in sight for a Maintenance JCBA at the "New" American.

    Note: USA endured 1365 Days during WW2.

    It wouldn’t surprise me to see the pilots next contract at AA get dragged out longer. That’s how regionals operate regardless of their size or the aircraft they operate.

    Tons of paychecks are wrong. Expect an email from ALPA shortly.
