Comair posted another furlough list tonight. Nothing we didn't expect, but it's the fact that they sent it out the night before Thanksgiving.
I'm not one of the guys who thinks the company does vindictive and tried to personally piss the pilots off.
But this is crap. Have some tact. Pay the guy to come into work Friday for 10 minutes and send the email out.
We've got another 30 pilots to be furloughed according to their 120 announced. I bet that one will come out on Christmas Eve.

I really hope there will be some good news for you guys with the passing of the new year... something's gotta give.

Pretty rotten timing on the announcement though... someone has a case of cranial-rectal insertion on that one.

Sources say that if DAL hires in the interim while Comair has furloughed pilots, that Comair pilots will be allowed to interview and be hired at DAL without giving up their furloughed spot at Comair. DAL pilots realize that the pilots being furloughed at Comair had nothing to do with the vindictive and nearsighted pilots at Comair post 9/11.

Well, you should be thankful, you have a week extra now to search for a job. They want you guys out asap otherwise there is no reason to give out a furlough notice months ahead of time.

Hmmm... I didn't know Delta pilots dictated Delta hiring policies, nor did I know that Comair pilots were responsible for hiring at their airline.

You really are "full of luv" aren't ya?

Done!
With all these furloughs (and I'm assuming the associated scale-back in flying) which company is picking up the flying? I would certainly hope not another ALPA carrier...

The 14 or 15 -900's that were to come to Comair, were redirected to Mesaba. Not sure if they're ALPA or not.

They're alpa... I think that's why cmr has pref hiring with mesaba.
Not because CMR management knows we're shutting down our doors and trying to help the pilots out? :D

Even if that's true (which I doubt), what if Delta doesn't hire in the interim?

comair doesn't have any sort of preferential hiring with Mesaba, nor does xjet. i can tell you with 100% confidence they do not. Thats a agreement that that two alpa's made. HR & flight ops dictates who mesaba hires, and i know for certain no agreement exists that HR recognizes!! 110% positive!.

the 900's that xj is getting are the freedom crj-900's and they were already on property with them, as well as the ones slated for delivery.

You are correct. But Comair's VP of Ops sent out an email stating we'd get 14 more 900's, followed by a new bid.
Then a week or two later came out with another email stating that the bid had been cancelled because those airplanes were redirected to Mesaba.
They never touched the property here, but they had planned for them to come here....for a week or two.

Comair management has never been good at treating its employees like actual people.

Don't forget the 14th CRJ900 that was originally promised to us in April of 2007 by Delta that was yanked from us a few weeks ago to go over to Mesaba.

It's a crappy situation for Comair, but you should know better than to believe a rumor about new airplanes until they are sitting at your gate. You can't lose something that you never had.

It's one thing to tell us they're coming on property.
It's another when they send out a new bid for these airplanes.
