Re: Air Transat Ferry flights

International equipment leases are governed by treaty. Ships and aircraft have additional treaties recognizing their movability. You can pick it all apart, but the bottom line is the lessor has a right to recover, control, and relocate their property using reasonable means. Transat didn't have to si...

Re: Air Transat Ferry flights

This sounds like it's just fins getting sent back. Leases getting returned all around the world. Clearly lease companies, manufacturers, etc have means to move aircraft, doesn't have to be the ex-operator's pilots doing it.

If it was not under the OC, how did they get into RVSM airspace? There's so little traffic out there today, maybe they just phoned each FIR and got approval? What about MNPS?
I'm sure lease companies have arrangements when they have to move aircraft. Why wouldn't they be allowed in RVSM/MNPS?

Re: The Return to Normal?

There may be a link to the whole situation, but if it's the virus itself, it's not established yet. And how do you reconcile that not all the kids had the virus or antibody?

You like to work on facts, don't you?

Re: The Return to Normal?

It's a reach. There is not a link. Not all the kids in New York had Covid, of course some of them did, because hundreds of thousands of people have or had it, but it's not the cause. Why didn't we see this on any other parts of the world? Only New York?

Your claim is that the airline industry recovery from the worst global economic recession since the Great Depression is going to be lead by discretionary international travel and discretionary spending. 🙄 I’m sorry but that’s a bit of a stretch.

Re: 79 Airplanes Retired

So am I correct in understanding that any RP will not be entitled to a RIR because any position they move to is an upgraded position? Therefore, even if the company offered the RP position in the future, the original RPs would have to no RP CR except UR CR to make the move back? This would open it ...

Re: 79 Airplanes Retired

Just because you show surplus does not mean you are getting a furlough. Not immediately you mean? Eventually it will lead to furlough right? Unless the next bid changes the Outlook. But surplus and furlough are two separate things. One is based on the bid, and the other will depend on ACPA MOA, etc...

Ok semantics. 795 surplus of which 600 max can be laid off(but probably will just stay on payroll and collect CEWS until CEWS ends or September, whichever is later) and the remaining 195 could be laid off starting in September? No it's not just semantics. They have two different meanings. Just beca...

So the Coles Notes of the bid is 795 surplus (layoff) and 601 less CA awards vs Bid 19-04?
Surplus ≠ Layoff

Re: 79 Airplanes Retired

This is far from a paper bid... there's always a lot of jigging and massaging on the CMSC, but there will be a ton of moves and training happening right away. There will be reduced 787/777/330 CAs too. Probably 40 or 50 reduced 767 CAs, and L767 CAs have the seniority to bump in there and I'm sure t...

Re: 79 Airplanes Retired

For those in the know - what was the rationale behind eliminating all of the LCC 319 and WB RP positions? Also, why the reductions on the 737? I'm clearly not "in the know" so just speculation, but... 737 reduced because of the slowdown on taking of additional deliveries. We were showing for the 50...

Re: 79 Airplanes Retired

Last bid was 4900+, now down to 3300 and change. That's about 1/3 of positions gone Correct me if I’m wrong, 4900 included the 800 vacancies that were not filled. Right. But lots of those positions that are gone are Captain seats... lots bumping down, losing left seat, lost activation dates, etc.

An increasing number of analysts today are taking the interesting position that as a whole, leisure travel will rebound more in proportion to domestic flying.
Who? Do you have any links?

Consensus among carriers in the US and at AC is expecting domestic recovery first.
