Now that HAL has exited BK, is there any info on when they might start recalling?
I spoke with a friend of mine at HAL.. Their plan supposedly is not to do anything really it appears until they see what happens to Aloha. That's the most interesting info I got but...Sleepyhead said:Now that HAL has exited BK, is there any info on when they might start recalling?
Actually the contract states that your furlough period can be up to double your time of service at HA, with a minimum of six years. Therefore the guys with four years that are on furlough have eight years of furlough available.islandhopper said:Furlough letters at HAL are only good for 6 years, they would probably be renewed if it went past that, but if mgmt wanted to "start fresh" they could start letting guys go if this stretches another two years. Yes, some guys been furloughed now 4 years... (Wow... I guess it has been that long).
The current numbers are:islandhopper said:Retirements average about 8 a year for the next 5 years.
Just wondering where you heard that?islandhopper said:As for any ideas that many of the furloughees would or would not come back, the feeling is most all of them WILL come back, as the way it was explained to me only like 5 out of the entire 98 dont seem to want to come back...
Be careful what you wish for. In ALPA mergers DOH almost never happens. Those of us on furlough would most likely be placed below anyone currently working at Aloha, including those hired after we were furloughed.FlickerFade said:Who knows, at this point I'd accept DOH with Aloha and be done with it.
IMHO I dont think that HA is looking into a merger at this point and the focus is on the Transpac/intl side. (getting more 767's). If any thing happens in the interisle market we do not plan on getting that many 717's-if there is a capacity shortfall (interisle seats will continue to decline in future).One rumor has it the HA/AQ merger may be on again to facilitate a smooth transition to an interisland monopoly, i.e., dusting off of 717 ferry tanks
