    Yeah dude, that was the point I made when I quoted you before.

    Indeed it would have been. Wasn't my screenshot, though.

    Then I quote you back as it was worthy of repeating.

    BTW, the Union has made it so difficult to download a searchable document on this, nor make them printable, that I am having trouble converting this for my spreadsheet. Guess they just want everyone to keep looking on as if nothing really happened here.

    At least someone was voluntarily taking one for the team there ;)

    Here is a quote of what you said:

    So were we going to shrink forever as you stated? Or was this extension set in stone years ago?

    Wouldn't that be good for the ERJ side and everyone junior to these senior captains?

    You keep quoting me, then making up your version of what I "stated". The way to tell is the different words!
    I'm not mad at your dishonesty, but I am disappointed.

    COMPARED TO shrinking forever, we made a deal. Exactly as I've been saying we would for 2 years.

    But an impressive theory! That after telling you guys month after month after month how stupid your shutdown predictions were and then being proven exactly right, I now want to go back in time and amend my prediction to the wrong outcome so I look like an idiot, too. ******* brilliant.

    I once heard Bill Kennedy say that dedication would get you a job at United... And a bowl of soup.

    I'm not being dishonest. I quoted you accurately. Now, if that's not what you meant, then I guess I misunderstood.

    I've always stated that nobody should count on being here past the CPA date, whatever that should be at the moment. That hasn't changed, I'm still saying that now.

    Compared to where you said we were going, shrinking forever, this new deal allows xjt the opportunity to not shrink by transferring Asa pilots over to the ERJ. Staffing has been the issue for the last 18 months and that was going to be our downfall regardless of the end date of the next CPA. Unfortunately for the Asa pilots, delta comairing them MAY have saved the ERJ side from shrinking forever.

    Again, my point has always been to plan for worst case scenario (no flying past the CPA date) and to therefore have a plan b. Telling people that there is no flying past the CPA date was just re-enforcing my point.

    Had a RAH pilot/recruiter on my jumpseat last week. He said they are specifically targeting ASA pilots.

    The ERJ fleet will continue to shrink. ASA FOs will do better moving on to any other regional like Endeavor.
