Straight from Dunkerley's mouth while on my jump seat - contracts signed for 4 Airbus in 2010-2011 in addition to the original purchase due to arrive starting 2012. Of these 4, 2 are growth and 2 are 767 replacements.Why does 'training bubble' not sound so good?
Were the plans to retire the 767 one for one as the Airbus arrives? Or will a couple be in addition to?
Glad to hear of more hiring, keep up the good work.
I think the Airbus will get filled by existing pilots and new hires will be either 767 or 717, probably 717.That is Great!
So a net of 2 growth. With the replacements in 2012.
What do you think about those new hires....will they be airbus trained, to delay current pilots from having to do it untill later, or something else? With the same pay I figure many current guys will stay in the 767 as long as possible/bid will allow.
A few Questions 1. How many people are in the "pool" I know many interviewees haven't been told if they are in or out. 2. How many people are in the "Interviewed but not hired/informed" pool? 3. Will the be interviewing for the new Airbii? 4. Is Dr. Farcas and the Hat Party still gonna be involved? Good luck to all just the same!
