Word on the street is that Mesaba and 9E are banking on Delta's decision to install a 4th push in Memphis sometime in early fall. Without out this each company can expect massive Furloughs...
How could a continuation of the status quo result in a reduction in staffing?
Jeez... the number gets bigger and bigger everytime people continue to blow the problem out of proportion. We are NOT over staffed by OVER 150. Get real... it's more like 100. Yes, we're overstaffed but don't over dramatize the situation. Who the heck is JO? Dude, do you work at Mesaba or Mesa?
Also... let's do the math. 10% of 1,500 is 150. We don't even have 1,500 pilots man. Your math doesn't add up.
It's well know that Mesaba is over staffed by over 150, last I checked that's over 10% of the pilot staff. J.O. has even said in RGS that mesaba is hoping something in the fall.
9E crj contract under pressure from the UNDISCLOSED portion of the modified of the 900 contract with DELTA...
4th bank was discussed at one of the last meetings. time will tell
