but we all remember how good VA are at negotiating leases. Weren’t they paying more for ATRs than 737s at one point?

Of course, many silly decisions made under "Borg and his Buddies"

except a 30 min rant from nifty on loyalty, then you’ll be asked to fill out a form agreeing to stay at the budget ibis on your overnights.

As far as I’m aware of you look up the award for 737 captain that’s the pay. Award pretty much describes the conditions.

There a few ex VAA guys there that I’m sure could give you a run down.
Rex’s whole strategy for the jet was “project mother.” Makes for interesting reading. Someone here could post it for you with some luck

From the Project Preso. Good luck to them no doubt they will need it one day.

Salary expectations will also be very constrained and a fresh EBA (enterprise bargaining agreement) will get rid of the decades of accumulated entitlements.”

Those EBAs would be “pegged at 10% lower than Jetstar”, the presentation says.

Shirley the bigger question has to be how long the "jet operation" will continue. " And don't call me Shirley"
