Trans-States And Gojets

Mon Sep 04, 2006 6:37 am

Is UA looking for more lift from Gojet rather than Trans-States, and in turn replacing TSA with the 70 seaters??

Can someone tell me what a GoJet is? I hadn't seen them until this past Friday when flying through ORD on UA to CID.

Got a link for a web page/homepage for them?

Thanks for that Nutsy -

So it's just a titpulling exercise between pilots and union  redflag  . . .

GoJets has been labeled as a scab-run airline, and all of their current pilots have been pretty much blacklisted for the rest of their careers- good luck ever getting on with a union carrier.

TSA pilots raised a big stink over this, and rightfully so. They're paying these CRJ700 pilots minimal wages, and were hiring the pilots at relatively low times as well.

The union doesn't hire the pilots. There are plenty of Eastern and Continental scabs still flying. Hell, some of the later even got back into ALPA. It is however, a mark you carry for the duration of your careers, and something someone will know wherever you go.

Does Gojets actually do a good job? Are their FA's professional enough to handle a F class service? I know that Mesa's are not. I flew on them from ORD-ATL awhile back and their FA's sat and talked about "boys" the whole time - I was pissed.

Isn't that kind of the way Freedom was started??

The union doesn't hire the pilots

That's exactly correct. The union has no say, one way or the other whether a pilot is eligible for work with any airline. They can be forced from their jobs for not paying dues once hired, but nobody but the hiring manager at the airline decides who does and does not get hired. And that is as it should be.

Flew GoJet for the first time last week, STL-ORD. It wasn't too bad, somewhere above YV and below OO... Granted, it was a short flight but the flight deck was doing a good job keeping the passengers informed and the FAs weren't bad at all.

is GOJets going to be all strictly UA flying or would they ever be ever to fly under the American Connection banner from the AA STL hub?
