Discussion in 'Airline Pilots' started by flyinghedgehog, Mar 16, 2017.
Just curious if your airline would accommodate that. Thanks in advance for the info.
Depends on what for.
They will almost certainly do it when they are furloughing. Leave of absences from senior pilots will prevent junior pilots from getting furloughed in some cases. NWA had a group of guys out for a decade, I know at least one who is still out even after the DAL merger and he's been out for close to 14 years now!! There are provisions for military that the folks in the military would be better able to explain.
All depends on staffing and for how long and how much the CP (or whomever makes the decision) likes you.
We have a provision in our contract called "Surfer Leave" that pays half credit (37.5 hours) and allows a guy to keep full benefits to take a month off. Haven't been offered in a while, but when they do get offered they go senior as hell.
Re military leaves... under USERRA they've be denied and you have to be treated, for the purposes of benefits, like you never left. So you accrue seniority and longevity. There are people that abuse that.
