From what I have heard or read...looks like around 50 LOA have been approved and another 20 or so will soon be approved. That and with the addition of crj at risk flying that will soon be added (leaving very few if any rjs idle) I think we are safe until fall. We will have to see how the block hours look for over the winter... who knows. Latest word from mngmt is no furloughs are expected (takin with a grain of salt). As for new classes... That's going to be awhile, sorry man.
Has something to do with the Northwest part of the US. No real specifics, but we've been told that there will be 7 CRJ200s running a branded operation, and that in doing so should be able to keep SkyWest from having to furlough anyone. Also expecting a 10-20% increase in Delta Connection flying for the summer months.
