Another displacement/furlough. Going from about 36 classic crews to 25. guessing about 20-25 pilots and 10-12 FE's will get furloughed....depending on how many FE's can move to the right seat.

This not a vacancy so no FE's will be afforded the opportunity for move to the right seat.

I think they can displace a 400 FO if they are senior enough no? Did that not happen on the last curtailment? Could be wrong....I can barely remember what happened last week.

Could this be a result of the end down of the overseas conflicts? A lot of the heavy lifters are downsizing, or going our of business like World and Evergreen,

I think they are going down to 4 classics to go along with the 7 400's.

The -200 market has fallen through the floor. The companies who adapted quickly to the -400 freighter are still around.

Even the -400 and the 747-8F market is changing. Comparing the 777F and 747-8F. The 8F can carry more freight shorter range and has the nose door advantage.

Long range, the 777F can carry more freight farther and cheaper.

The new 777-X Freighter will be something interesting.

The can displace if there is a vacancy, but this is just a curtailment. Our last bid was a vacancy bid, weird we just had a vacancy bid and ONE FE made the grade, hmmm something sounds fishy.

maybe they were fishing for FE's on that bid to know what would be the result of this and how many FE's would actually be on the chopping block. sort of gave them a chance...?

good ?
very weird what is going on. Business seems to be good, airplanes are flying, but there seems to be no effort to add new airplanes or grow the company. It's almost like a restructuring.

nope, quite which is not unusual. The company is not one to blow its own horn or tell us what might be in our future.
