Good news, Not that it matters what the reason for the call back is, but any ideas why?
Proposed new rest rules?
Attrition?
Increased / New Flying?
I am presently furloughed and am hoping it is a reaction to the proposed new
rest rules, because it certainly is not coming from an uptic in the economy.
Maybe there is some hope for us on the street.
OK putting the crack pipe down now and getting back to reality.

Every Eagle flight I've Jumped on the last few months has told me what a grossly understaffed situation they have been in the last few months.

If it's true, it's great to hear. Truly hope it's not a case of one step forward, one step back.

Anyone have any info on crashpads in FLL/MIA, please PM me. Thanks.

It will be interesting to see how the new rest rules effect pilot staffing. My feeling is more pilots will be needed. Congrats to the furlougees!

That isn't true. That would be by choice, and not because they can't hold it. With ten years, you can hold CA, how do I know? Because I've been here 10, and i'm a CA. They must be waiting for a specific domicile or equipment.

Junior CA is around 2/2000 for jets and 5/2000 for prop. SO youre right. It only takes 9yrs 8 months to hold jet and 9yrs 5 months for prop.

We'll let you answer your own question on that one.

Incorrect about "heavily understaffed". The furloughs won't all be back until February or March.

Pilots will always tell you they are understaffed, but they aren't the ones doing the hiring. As long as most flights aren't regularly being canceled due to a lack of staffing, then management considers the airline properly staffed.

If you are looking for a job at Eagle, don't count on any hiring until at least Spring '10.

God, 9 yr FO, That's brutal.
I'm sure it did bother him, but when he was called for upgrade he became deathly ill. Our family thought he would not pull through and was out of work for some time. Now he is better and back flying the line and his response to me was that he is grateful to be alive most importantly and that he is back flying. Sometimes you need to be grateful for all that's been given to us and be happy to wake up everyday.
