This is not about FAA Part 135. It's about removing the distinction between RPT & Charter in favour of the catch-all "Air Transport Operations".

From the (rejected) Eastern EBA proposal I've seen, every pilot would see a pay rise. New Q400 FOs would see the smallest pay rise.

This is not a B scale in my understanding of the word. Be that...

Many new trainees won't have an ATPL. It seems unlikely that Q will offer a free ATPL flight test to anyone except as part of a command upgrade. At this stage many long-haul jobs specify ATPL as a...

I think you may be a little out of touch Captain. I took a pay cut coming from a flying school, never mind a turbine job! But my eyes were open, so I don't complain.

All airline pilots are corrupt in that sense.

Personally I try to be less corrupt: 0.1IF so I can log the approach that I really did fly on instruments, although it was VMC.

But still corrupt....
