FO was speculating CRAF would be partially activated. Any one hear the same?

What the heck for? To follow AirForce One around carrying Michelle's vast shoe collection?
You never know, but the government saves a ton of money using craf... I have flown with a company that does the flying. You know how cheap the gov't can be:)
It will not be needed. They will use mil airlift and airline charters to fill the need.

The point given was 30000 folks into Afghanistan in 4 mo plus 80000 to come out of Iraq buy summer. That's a lot more flying than the charters are doing now in a very short time frame...
The scheds will be looking for a piece of the action from the non-scheds, but World, NAA, and Omni will be be busy. Some job security here.
