Preferential as in, every good candidate beats any outside candidate IIRC
It's not quite working that way for Piedmont, which has nearly the same language.
There is also metering language in place that keeps pilots at PSA
for up to 12 months (I think). The can accumulate to one hell of an amount of money when a pilot is held at PSA
. Not to mention how many pilots will be ahead of you every month for bidding purposes.
Also, should a pilot not get hired at mainline (think they don't know how many times you called out sick?), longevity pay increases cease at some year. I don't have the agreement in front of me to say what year pay is frozen.
Bottom line, PSA
sold their souls for 900s. Not even growth aircraft, just bigger ones.
