Even with early out separation, voluntary furlough, and early retirement offered, Comair will be down to 1030 pilots by the fall, with a total of 356 on furlough (up to Sept 06 DOH). The bleeding has been slow and painful.:rolleyes:

I will do my part to make sure that the company misses you. The cold an flu season is approaching and i am sure others will make sure that the company can't operate as planned. I hope DELTA chokes on it!

I have never been on reserve in JFK, but I will tell you that unemployment is better than reserve in CVG so it must be better than JFK. I didn't realize until I left the airline how much money I was spending on the road. I am a much better person to be around now.

Unless you're going to a strip club on every overnight i dont know how you can outspend your per diem. I ususally have enough per diem left over from what i spend on the road to help pay a couple bills.

I'll miss it (the flying, not everything else).

I think a more accurate furlough number would be 76. Voluntary furloughs should be included in the total number.

Oh that is real mature. Make the company lose money. That will bring them right back! Sounds like you want to help more out the door with your plan.

You're Delta, right? As I recall, you guys were picking up open time back when you had pilots on furlough.

You don't get per diem sitting reserve, so it's easy to outspend it.

Now for the record I have several friends at Comair that are actually happy that they are now on the furlough list.... A few are now getting their second one after one from Mesaba.... Their only hope is a merger to be able to go back to Mesaba eventually, go figure. Anyway as I see it the only "regional" that seems to be safe longer term is Skywest and sadly that is a combination of unvoidable contracts with Delta and that they are non-union.... Those of us at the wholly-owneds at this point look like we need to find new careers... In all reality all of us under 50 probably need to find new careers, probably in the military..... Welcome to the global economy.

just ignore him. if you look at his history he loves to chime in on any comair post and rip it up. im a comair guy myself, but i do see his point on some things. guess im just trying to say lets keep the peace and let it all go. no point in ripping into each other. we are all stressed. best wishes to those that are getting furloughed. im at four years and looking at a luxury lifestyle of jfk reserve now. i'm kicking myself for not calling that recruiter back seven years ago when i was fresh out of college.

Oh-

What goes around comes around... The big D is hosing all the passengers, employees, contractors, and suppliers it can find. People have long memories-every time someone gets screwed by the new "800 lb. gorilla," they let all their friends and family know.

When SWA and ALGT are operating out of ATL, the Big D sure will wish it had not screwed so many potential customers.

I just checked out the latest ALGT financials-CASM was 7.5 cents..... Delta's was 10.5 cents. Very simple numbers-very predicatable results.

-It is coming-and it will be fun to watch!

It's not really Delta anymore. It's actually Northwest disguised as Delta!:rolleyes:

Your as stupid as you are inexperienced and dangerous. If you are out of a Comair co-pilot 50 people stand a chance of taking off and landing alive. I'm glad to hear people like you going onto welfare. Pi$$ of D-Bag, you need to learn to read. Obviously you did not understand my last post. Your Mom must be so proud of you!
