I think my mortgage interest rate is too high, Congress needs to pass a law making mortgages zero percent interestJump to post
Government needs to stay out of it. They did pass the DEREGULATION Act of 1978. The government does need to stay out of it! They do it for headlines and trying to get reelected, not for the people they say they represent. Oh boy, let's turn this thread into a political discussion, shall we...? If C...Jump to post

It’s way more than several.

Bottom line is the A333s are going, keep your arm chair Fleet planning. There are no additional 333s ever coming. That’s reality. They are quite happy with the 15 332s. Uhmm, how did you know they are happy with only 15 A330-200? that sounds like an opinion to me. And the last time I check, they ar...Jump to post
Doesn’t work that way.
Any plane must be 10 years old that can be transferred or those companies face sanctions or charges.
And IR would have a very hard time getting parts.
Lease costs is only one part of the cost, training, maintenance and parts by eliminating a fleet type it saves money. They are currently operating A330. They are planning on keeping operating A330-200 in the future since it's still pretty young. So it would mean that training, maintenance and parts...Jump to post
A cargo plane would be needed, not a passenger plane to move an engine Not always ... ;) 2760261 First of all not all 747s have the fifth pylon and it’s only certified for a 747 engine. So you can’t put any other plane’s engine type on there. So it’s not really feasible for this discussion.Jump to post

You do realize delta lost millions in the NYC markets for years and it wasn’t until the past two years that NYC finally turned a profit?Jump to post

Based on what I've seen from DL, DL employees, and their culture, I'll bet the Powerball jackpot they don' unionize. No way in hell. I saw the "Grill and Chill" event they had at the flight museum in ATL and those people--ALL workgroups--would practically spill blood for DL. They're happy...Jump to post
We were not.
Did you see the financial data?
We were close to chapter 7 in December of 2003.
You just want to argue.
The 2002/2003 we were close to liquidation not the 2004/2005 as the ATSB let us use the $1 billion loan as the DIP Financing.Jump to post
Ok don’t believe me I was only on the IAM Mechanic and Related Negotiating Committee. Not close at all. Because after all, management was always perfectly transparent with union labor negotiators when it came to possible shutdowns... Are you just always combative know it all?

Guess you have zero clue there is a nomination and election process and there was nominations this year. Hey DA I ran elections for the IAM when I was RS of my local.

The IAM votes directly on their representatives and Officers.
It’s obvious you have a hard on for the IAM, but it doesn’t condone you to lie.
The IAM didn’t scab at NW, maybe if you actually read a contract and no what it means the. You can talk.
Here’s the point: the IAM will do nothing for DL workers it will only promote division and give the union a much needed cash infusion to continue paying these cushy salaries to the leadership, many of whom haven’t worked in the industry for decades and their children. APFA doesn’t pay leaders anyth...Jump to post
No chance in 2004/05 I was on the IAM Mechanic and Related Negotiating Committee.
Now in the 2002/03 right before Christmas they threatened us with chapter 7.

Most are in the same locals. But not same district.
We as maintenance voted to be in our own district.
Maintenance has been unionized since 1949, Fleet was unionized in 1995
You are separate from fleet
UA ramp is 141 as is LUS ramp and AA Maintenance is 142.
District owns, negotiates and enforces the contract.
The IAM structure is Grand Lodge, District Lodge, and Local Lodge.
There is a reason why the Airline Industry is highly unionized. It’s quite apparent you’ve never been part of it.Jump to post
