I just heard from a friend with Piedmont that you guys might be losing your US Air code because of too many cancellations and other problems.

Have you heard that?

No i haven't, but considering we were last in on time performance in the industry last month with an average delay of 60 minutes i wouldn't find that suprising

Dispatch Delay

How about train and KEEP a dispatcher for more than a week. I have taken so many delays while doing a 20 minute turn do to the release being wrong.

BPT as an alternate with BPT notams says airport closed.

Ah, 2SM visibility and no alternate? Do they even read the releases first.

Don't get me started on the cleared MEL's or new ones that never get on the release. The communication between dispatch and MX control must be difficult being in the same room.

OK, yea a lot of bitching, but seriously, can we get a qualified dispatcher not to quit? Where did Lynn go?

its the pilots fault! you should be able to do 20 min turns in LGA and 10 min turns at the outstations. during a 6 leg, 12 hour day do you really need a lunch break?? thats what the 20 min gound time is for in LGA.

You must not be an accomplished colgan cowboy. You write like you are some kind of checkairman or something, what's with that?? Put down your FOPP, pick up your spit bottle and saddle up!

Did Ladon write another memo??

In vintage form his excellence returns, undaunted, now cowboying the MD80, and dropping the hammer on colgan on his days off! All is well.

Hey does anybody know if Colgan is currently hiring street Capts. I know they wanted to hire 100 before the end of the year and I cant see them doing that without hiring Capts. I say that because I'm pretty sure they are way to cheap to hire that many FOs and also upgrade train new capts from the right seat. Anyone, anyone, Bueller, Bueller?

My guess is that when(if) they lose the U code, they will be quite fat on crews.

Anyone know what percentage of flying is for U?

Street Captains

"Hey does anybody know if Colgan is currently hiring street Capts"


I heard YES! I don't see if published anywhere, but if you got SAAB PIC time, and you too are desperate, then send it in, and you might just get what you asked for.

But you know what they say. Be careful ...bla bla bla.
