    Some of us think we do.

    Money is going to do what money is going to do and sadly, labor is along fo the ride and we get thrown some trinkets to play with in the back seat. We basically negotiate seat comfort, the variety of trinkets and even thought we can choose the music, rarely does the requested song come up! :)

    Like a guy that wanted to declare war on JetBlue because of managements support of MEC's. It's not like the CEO came to the pilot group and asked "Can we do this? CAN we say this? Honestly, tell me your opinions!"

    It turns out pilots just think they're the most important part.

    It’s an EICAS message that shows up when there is a miscompare on certain data on the CA and FOs PFD. It’s prevelant on the CRJ.

    It’s a nuisance message that appears 32 times on every leg.

    And then once, on a moonless night over featureless terrain, when it really matters.

    Per Reuters, Delta's CEO has publicly stated that they still plan to take delivery and have no intention of paying the tariffs.

    Let's assume for a second these unfortunate tariffs are indeed imposed, not sure how we'd get out of them. Though smarter folk than I are certainly working on this, looking forward to getting this plane in the fleet.

    Maybe Canadian tax payers are doing a national assessment to pay the tariff. And that will in no way be a subsidy either, because (fill in blank)

    I think they're hoping the tariffs get shot down by the ITC.

    There could possibly be ways around it with leasing schemes.

    Unfortunately I don't think leasing schemes will do it - legislators should be able to sniff that out. If the tariff holds up, it will be imposed on any of these aircraft imported to the USA. If Delta can find someone who will eat that cost without transferring it to them, kudos, but I doubt any leasing company, bank, or partner airlines will be offering to do so.

    Bastian mentioned "delay" a few times on the earnings call today, so I would guess they are working with BBD to fight this and won't take delivery until the picture becomes more clear. Wouldn't be surprised to see this end as a settlement of sorts where BBD agrees to a fine and some concession on how they conduct business in the US, while DAL keeps the jets without the penalty.

    Maybe if Boeing built a jet in that category, modern, efficient and that airlines wanted, we would find ourselves in this situation, would we?

    Boeings narrowbody program reminds me of eating on campus in college.

    Monday: Steak
    Tuesday: Grilled chicken and Steak Soup
    Wednesday: Stir-fry day with choice of beef or chicken!
    Thursday: beef or chicken pot pie
    Friday: Fish sticks or hamburgers
    Saturday: Hamburger soup with a crispy seafood salad
