From valued employees to kicking stones down the road, once this all blows over, wonder how people will feel about airline careers?

What industry do you suggest they join? Nothing is stable right now other than health care professional.

That's why you shouldn't put all of your eggs in one basket. Other than government , nobody can guarantee you a job for life.

Tell me honestly that even 1 month ago anyone would have envisioned the events of the past 10 days. Laying off an entire company of pilots (and other employees) all at once has never occurred in this industry outside of a company shutdown post 9/11.

Just sayin'...

Laying off all pilots and other employees has never happened? Where have you been hiding all your life? It has happened many times. Get used to it.

My seniority # has nothing to do with anything.

You let slide “self entitled millennial”.. however, “Ok Boomer” lit a fuse.

My point is it’s just as easy to be condescending towards this doofus’ generation as it is towards any other. It doesn’t do anyone any good and there’s no place for it.

I would love it if this unprecedented aviation downturn could finally bring pilot unity. But as the above posts demonstrate...it will never happen

It more than likely will have the opposite effect, because when people become insecure , they act more with their emotions than with logic.

As an AvCanada discussion grows longer:
-the probability of 'entitlement' being mentioned, approaches 1
-one will be accused of using bad airmanship

It didn't in good times and that ended about 78 minutes ago. Literally

Instead....Embrace it. It will make you tough when you're driving coast to coast to coast looking for a job.

You're sweet. Never let them take that away from you. :heart:

Any good pilot knows that you should stand beside your brothers and sisters especially in times of crisis. The mark of a great pilot is the one who can do it with some humour. Unity is all around you, always has been.

Please...don't. :lol: I can't....just ease me into it. :D It's been a decade of peace and love on here...I'm out of practice... Allow me to find and summon the pre-boom avcanada characters from self exile. Desksgo, 182driver. The holy grail of comedic angst and despair. I'm sending out my scouts now toward Middle Earth to the mountain of Mordor. They will know how to introduce the reality of these times.

I'll be back :D

Outrage? I'd have to care about your opinion to be outraged, so you clearly aren't great at reading comprehension. I'm just pointing out you either have an axe to grind or a screw loose if shitting on millions of people out of nowhere is something you do at random. Not that it matters but I'm married and in my 40's so this is coming from someone whose seen a few things
