What's the scuttlebutt about DAE and the bankruptcy at Delta?
its just too bad furloughed DAL pilots can't be hired there. I know of several of our furloughees who won't even be considered because of their status.bafanguy said:Today, the 23rd, they put up an ad for pilots...for whatever that's worth.
In thier defense, this is incorrect. DAE, at one time, employed 4 furloughed Delta pilots. This was out of 35 total pilots. 1 ended up quitting, 2 were recalled, and 1 was layed off when they lost the leases on 4 of their airplanes.737 Pylt said:its just too bad furloughed DAL pilots can't be hired there.

our (mis)management team sucks!
Actually GG does not use them, and to the best of my knowledge niether do any of the other officers.Spooky 1 said:Some other management company will probably buy them, although I'm not sure what assets they have other than contracts with various coporations or well heeled individuals, all of which are probably meaningless considering the shape of Delta. Not being a core business, I would imagine it would be one of the first spin-offs, regardless whether or not it was profitable. I have always suspected that it's original creation was for the sole purpose of providing transporation for the likes of Leo Mullin and his ilk just so they would not be face to face with the Delta flight crews during unpleasent contract negotiations in the past. They may actually own a couple of Challengers, but I am sure that the bulk of their fleet is outside managed ownership. Probably the likes of TAG Aviation, Jet Aviation, and NetJets are lurking in the background to see if there are any scraps worth bidding on. Just MHO.
JG and his cronies are probably using them to go back and forth to NYC for the BK proceedings and lawyer meetings.
If they have that many aircraft they would be the worlds largest aircraft management company. They are not, ergo they must be inflating that number by at least 225, at a minimum. They recently showed less than 40 aircraft on their Part 135 certificate.MajorAv8r said:Yes, they advertise in the neighborhood of 300 managed airplanes.
