    I have been working at Polar Air Cargo


    Camaraderie of line workers especially flight crew is very high. International operations are much more interesting than domestic. Flying the 747-400 is great, crews have high professional status compared to peers in the industry. Experience is very transferable to any future employer. Current Collective Bargaining Agreement is very good compared to other airlines of similar size.


    Merger with Atlas Air impending, this will render or current CBA open to an arbitrators machinations. Weak upper management that lacks corporate vision. Crews are paid on the very low end of the spectrum with regard to the equipment we fly and the type of operations we conduct.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with labor instead of against it. DON'T Piss off the people who are responsible for multi-million dollar equipment and direct operation costs associated with fuel... Pilots want the airline to succeed and are prepared to work hard toward that end. Quit paying upper management ridiculous salaries and bonuses. Focus on EXPANDING the Polar side of AWWH as this has the most potential moving forward.
