Who's gotten a lay off?

Post by TeePeeCreeper »

Hi all,

As we all know COVID-19 has been difficult on the airline industry to say the least and who knows how much worse it might get.

I fly for a small corporate flight department where none of us are worried about lay off notices. (So far as we see it)

I am curious if anyone in the corporate flying biz or anyone flying for the majors have actually gotten a lay off notice yet?

Hopefully the aviation industry will bounce back quickly from this!

Regards,
TPC

I only have personal knowledge for Kenmore Air Service in Seattle. They start lay-offs Monday both in flight and maintenance. I have it from a well-placed source that at Harbor Air loads are down about 40%. Safe to assume many lay-offs are imminent across the industry not to mention support services.

My roster has been changed to all standbys until the end of the month.

Was supposed to be a line check flight and re-current groundschool.

We've been offered unpaid leave and job sharing (50%) on a voluntary basis. I expect that to change.

Bold statement TPC. That’s exactly what the Suncor Flight Department pilots were saying right up until the day they got their lay off notices.

Nobody is immune in this global downturn.

Here’s hoping for reduced blocks over lay off notices...

Loads are nasty all over YUL. Everyone is suffering. Companies won't burn through cash just to keep unusable employees around when the border closes.

Expect 2-3 months of layoffs for 75% of airline employees in the coming weeks. Hope you have your emergency savings account ready...

I wouldn't worry, DerateNO said no one has gotten a lay off notice.

It is going to get ugly. First rodeo for more than a few.
Hopefully everyone is prepared for it.

Sorry have you heard otherwise?

The question was if anyone has gotten notice and as of right now from everything I've heard no one has.

Unless you know otherwise?

Ha, I remember Y2K!, yeah because the "computer" in your '99 Toyota knew what year it was and wasn't going to start on new years day. On another note I haven't heard much about global warming lately.

Just listened to the Flexjet CEO message to employees in the US.
It seems that they are new extremely busy and expect to be for a few weeks with everyone trying to get to where they want to hunker down. He said after that when the reality of stock market sets in and general economic slowdown he expects to slow down as well.

And you're basing that on? Facts? Or are you seriously the kind of person that's hoping that those employees lose their lively hood?

It’s not a contest guys. All companies are going to lay off. AC just announced they are cancelling 50% of their flights. Going to be a tough few months for a lot of us.
