Latest rumor is that we will have to start hiring in the summer. Our furough mitagation plan may have worked too well.

My guess is Eagle will be hiring at some point in 2009.
If and when the other regionals like RAH and SKW start hiring, Eagle will as well, because something like 1/2 of our FO attrition has been to career-developing regionals.

Also, if AA recalls, the anticipated 90% deferral rate could possibly mean that Eagle flowthru pilots will start leaving, and this would generate a lot of movement here.

Wouldn't count on it, but anything is possible.

A furloughed PSA friend of mine went to a Job Fair and was told expect Eagle to Hire in July. But that was two months ago so it is old info.

Hiring in the near future is unlikely. Everyday, we have at least 30-40 FO's sitting home reserve at DFW and ORD..............each.

From the company's standpoint, if we have even 1 pilot sitting at home on reserve, unused on even the dead-est of days, we are grossly fat on staffing.

Hiring during the summer at the earliest I think, unless RAH or SKW start hiring sooner.

Although I would love to see hiring begin again, presence at a job fair doesn't necessarily imply anything. It is good business to represent the name at fairs and do the grip and grin. It doesn't cost much, especially if you ultimately end up hiring a few meatsacks who would have went somewhere else.

Nothing wrong with Lakes. A lot of SWA, UPS, FedEx, UAL, AMR, DAL, CAL pilots wisely used it to build their careers.

How about Air Tahiti Nui? Any of their pilots wisely built their careers at GLA? What about Garuda?
