I guessing that because they are so short staffed now .... 120 pilots.

Cool ... then my stab was pretty good. Wasn't aware of every one's guesses over the past five days.
Maybe I could become a sports line setter or whatever they're called after my career is over.

The ways things sound around there, they may be able to fill that completely with voluntary furloughs, and still have to turn some down. Sad to see what has become of Comair.

I left there at the end of the 2001 strike. It was not an easy decision. When discussing it with my wife at the time she remarked "Delta will never never forgive you guys for going on strike." She was right. Shame.

I'd guess closer to 200...since this place defines "fair staffing" as Junior manning and available open time (I laughed when I read that email).

Don't forget cancelling flights due to inadequate staffing, then having Delta call Freedom in to cover them.

The Evil Empire does not consider you to be human beings. I still wake up every day and thank God I am no longer under their influence. Best to all.

Sorry to hear about this guys.

There is no justice in y'all getting cut further while Mesa/Freedom has a better legal department than Delta.

FWIW, most people at ASA believe that we will cut further this fall, as well.

Comair stood up for us in 2001. This is pathetic.

This has actually happened?

What's our powerful union doing about that? Doing a "study" well over 3 months late and handing over the data and meeting with john Bendoveritis a week before the next furlough announcement doesn't sound like much was done for the guy's/gal's on furlough.

I would have welcomed a recall even if only for a couple of months before being furloughed once again! $600 bucks every 2 weeks on unemployment is not cutting it. And if that wasn't bad enough, it's running out here very soon.

The number is 100, in talks about early out, long term colas, flex lines (no), and forget the last one

Sad thing is that unemployment is only $200 less than what we're making as a reserve JFK FO.

You got that right. Just think of all the great things that Comair has done for the regional pilots. Like pioneering PAY FOR TRAINING.


I believe SWA pioneered PFT.
