Take if from someone who has been through the regional into the majors. When your at the Regionals you hate SCOPE, it's what "screws" us. The minute you finally get to you Mainline job, SCOPE is your best friend!! But it looks like you Eagle guys are finally starting see the world from our view! From Eagle's MEC:
``We understand why APA negotiated the commuter air carrier limitations in their contract's Scope clause,'' said Captain Jim Higgins, American Eagle ALPA MEC Chairman. ``American Airlines' pilots are concerned about the outsourcing of their flying. We are now seeing the same problem between American Eagle and the American Connection carriers.''
SCOPE is a doubled edged sword, but you need to look at both sides of the fence. It gets messy because everyone has the attitude "I'm gettting Screwd" That is till your job disappears to a RJ.
