How ironic that a major announcement with huge negative impact on hundreds of Netjets employees will be made on 9-11.

Hang on folks, it's going to be a very bumpy ride. Best wishes to all affected.






And don't get me started on the e-mail.

Gutshot that is a little classless. I bet the first thought through your head was "oh, I have to be the first to spread the news".

Get a life. :rolleyes:

Everybody just needs to STFU. Now. We have our own board for this.

No one likes to hear of layoffs but to try to bury it is not facing it. It just goes to show how bad this downturn is. NJ, a strong company, with strong backing, is not immune to the downturn. I pray that all of the people layed off will find it a short term thing.

Doh, Sparse, and Club, thanks for the sentiments. I'm sure the lay off situation will be discussed in the near future...after all of those affected have been officially notified and have had a chance to privately digest the news first.

Obviously none of us control the media, but the thinking is that NJ folks can show discretion and give those involved the privacy they deserve until the situation is resolved.

No one afforded the hungreds of employees at Flex, Options, and CS any of that privavcy on this forum, which is dominated by NJ people. Away with your "holier than " attitude. We are all in this together. I feel for all of those layed off, NJ included.

Exactly Sparse. NJW likes to poke her ugly mug into everyone elses business, but talks about discretion when it comes to issues in her own backyard. I thought she said that all fractionals are a big family and in this together. I guess that doesn't apply to her. It isn't news that NJ would have to eventually right size. Best wishes to all those at NJ. Irony is a good title to this thread and not because of 9/11.

My post was intended only to help prevent the spread of rumors that would add unnecessary stress to an already difficult situation. Those of us who posted about the other fracs had relied on the folks from there to post the news at the appropriate time. I think every frac employee/family deserves space and privacy at a time like this. Yes, we're all in this together and I'm sure the NJ lay-off situation will be discussed when the actual facts/details are out. I agree that given the status of the economy and the drop in flying, cuts at NJ were unavoidable.

Oh, come on..... Run for office. You'll fit right in. I agree we should wait for the good folks at NetJets to post this stuff themselves. It's their business. But don't feed us this line.

I guess 100% of the Fracs have now layed people off. Avantair did it last March 08 (no pilots), Flex, Citation Shares, now NJ.......welcome to the jungle.

I almost made a thread this morning about this...

A buddy of mine works in HDQ and said they were going through, firing people at their desk and asking them to collect their belongings on the spot.

Best wishes to EVERYONE who lost their job today...

is it just office folks? or pilots too?
Office as of now. The company and union are supposed to resume talks in a couple of weeks I believe. The news article states it's laying off 5% of all worldwide employees according to NetJets officials. Not sure if that 5% will hold true for pilot furloughs as well though. I'm guessing that's the approximate # they will be gunning for though.
