Yes I know as the year has gone on I've blogged less and less. No real reason.
In the most recent Captain bid I could have held Captain.....in another base. I bypassed.
I would have been the most junior Captain meaning absolute horrible quality of life. My airline gives reserves 11 days off a month. In reality having to commute to another base I'd be at home 8-9 days a month. Not worth it to me.
Every airline has rumors. The latest is there will be another Captain bid soon with vacancies in my base. I hope it comes out soon as I get no further pay increases as I'm at the top of the First Officer pay scale.
I currently bid number 50 in base. I'm number 70ish overall in the company.
Beyond that I am no longer the union Communications Chairman. Due to some politics I was not re-elected. It annoyed me at first, but I've come to grips with it, back to a regular line pilot.
More to come..........
