There is bound to be a lawsuit from one side or the other. If he is told he is back to new hire longevity he will sue because he was told by the then MEC chairman that he could come back at his old spot. If he gets to stay in his captain slot and keep his longevity then every pilot that was passed over for a leave of absence, anyone who was forced to pass up an outside opportunity, or any person that left and came back at yr 1 pay will sue. This will set a precedent which is my main problem with what happened. He was given special treatment that is not afforded to the average guy. If they let him come back then anyone and everyone that has left can come back to their old seniority. I like the idea of allowing people to come back but it has to be open to everyone.
