Re: On furlough: Now what?

Congratulations on your first furlough. And for it to be from a major airline at such a young age is really something. Being in my mid 30s, I can’t help but feel like this is the first speed bump you’ve ever experienced in this industry after what was probably an unprecedented career progression if ...

Re: Recession incoming

Do what the fat cats do. Start a business and exploit your workers. Beg the government for a bailout when you can’t make it. Do it in America because they have no taxes and their debt doesn’t matter. They are doing just ok in this crisis. And so are investors especially if you bought indexed funds a...

Re: Layoffs

Hard to layoff a mixed fleet of pilots from the bottom up when current speculation is this will be nearing completion in a few months. Layoffs need to last much longer than 3-6 months to be financially viable. How do you like your crow because you also said “mark my words” no layoffs will occur? I ...

Re: Central Mountain Air FO Pay

I don’t think anyone is paying 57,000 for a 1900 captain in Canada in 2020. I also don’t think anyone at a place where they are paying six figures for a 1900 capt is going to go from zero to hero in two or three years. Maybe Wasaya, but then you deserve it. Unless you’re coming in as a DEC in which ...

Re: BA suspends MAX production

Don’t worry, they have a big dumb rocket that they are being sole sourced on in spite of competitors offering better rockets for cheaper. They are too big to fail.

That’s your one trillion dollar deficit at work, five times what Canada’s is as measured by GDP.
