It's riddle posts like this that convince me I need to back away from this message board for good, keep work issues where they belong....at work...and just let the bad news hit me on the head when it's ready.Flyinisforbirds said:Northwest likes that Mesaba has CRJ trained pilots. That is one card in their deck I dont think they should throw away. These CRJ trained pilots are the only quick fix to the pinnacle staffing problems. I say only quick fix because I don't think I should mention the other. But you might see anyother quick fix in the near/distant future that no redtail pilots would like.
If Mesaba doesn't get all of the 32 voluntary furloughs they want, then the current non-CRJ FOs (by seniority) will bump out the newhire CRJ FOs and the company will have to spend more money retraining CRJ FOs (since the first CRJ class has already finished ground school and is up in Montreal for FTD/sim training).blackbox said:what happened to the new hires that were in training for the CRJ?
