I heard that you guys signed a contract to use your crews to fly their 7-4's? What's the scoop? When does that go into effect?
Contract "ain't" gonna happen from what I am hearing. World was awarded it again.
Our offer was for a 747-400, World was for the MD-11. Sonair said thanks but no thanks.
As far as the furloughed guys go, your guess is a good as mine. There are quite a few good guys waiting for a phone call...
EZ will NEVER put an Angolan in the cockpit...
I don't know about that...Evergreen was quite willing to stick crews in planes with JADE pilots a year ago. I would never underestimate what Dell would do for dollars. It would actually make sense to use their FA's and qualify EZ crews for their airplanes and certificate rather than EZ having to set up and get FAA OP Specs and approval for their own FA program.
The true owner of WOA's MD-11ER's is Boeing. Boeing wants the ER Pax aircraft out of the market as they compete for 777 slots. So the ER's are slated for Cargo conversion in the future, when I don't know.
Sorry I will be more specific, If WOA doesn't have a ER they can't fly the route and WOA at this time does not have 47 pax aircraft on the way or on their certificate. Sonair has these 47's ready to operate and needs someone to do it.And this means what pertaining to this thread? Are you saying that Sonair and Boeing are in bed with each other for something that amounts to no more than 2 airplanes, neither of which are 777's?
