Latest rumor is CAL will begin recalls in the Spring (of this year) and hiring in the Fall. Anyone else hear this (or something else regarding recalls)?

As noted on another thread those that were hired last year but never given class dates have recently received emails from CAL. Any truth to this rumor? If true, does anyone have the actual email that was sent?

Thanks

I have heard so many different rumors lately but I'll tell you, we NEED you guys back....BAD! They were junior manning and rolling days off over the holidays and at one point, I was told by a scheduler, that it's only going to get worse. I hope they bring all you back, ASAP. You never should have been furloughed in the first place.

This rumor seems to be getting louder and more frequent. Sounds like it is leaning more to the side of possible fact. Sounds like those furloughed or intersted in getting hired should find out where things might be heading in a few months.... good luck to all. Hiring in the fall would be nice.

It has been confirmed that a letter went out to the guys in the pool stating that although no definite plans for hiring have been made, the company is hopeful to be hiring in late 09. Assuming things stay as they are, which they rarely do, that would probably support a possible start to the recalls in late spring or early summer. Hoping for the best!

With the upcoming scope relaxation on 70-seat flying, CAL will be able to transfer 737 flying to EMB-170/175 aircraft. That will help alleviate the burden on CAL pilots. It's already in the works.

Those are the best replies, kind of like the people who did not believe that the price of oil would crash.

Thanks for replying, using two of your screen-names, so we know you are double-serious.

Depends who you ask. I have flown 22 hours in the last 3 months on reserve. Chillin at home and trading stocks all day, usually.

I don't see any reason to leave here for anywhere else.

I am not in any special club either, anyone here can do this.

Sorry d0uche, CAL will not be one of the companies you can whore yourself out to. You give CHQ pilots a bad name.

The ExpressJet pilots will deserve that flying.

Why would you not quit? If I did not like this job I would be gone and not look back.

If I was still based in EWR doing those 6 crossings a month I would be gone. If I every get displaced out of IAH I will go on leave until I can hold it.

Bottom line: I will not work a lot of days and WILL NOT go back to EWR and be fu1<ing tired all the time again.....I would quit.


I just don't understand why you would continue to do those lines. If you are a commuter, why not move to base and bid caribbean stuff or FL turns from EWR????

I would bet all my money that you hated your previous job too (when you were there).

Get real, stay or quit, either way stop complaining...

Please stay on topic folks.

This rumor seems to be gaining some momentum (particularly with a few "confirmed" recipients of the alleged email).
