Midwest Express Airlines: The total number of pilot furloughs was reduced to approximately 105 (out of 408). Yes, 120 furlough letters were sent, however, several were rescinded. The dates of furlough / number of furloughees is:
72 on 11/1
32 on 11/15
No further furloughs are anticipated. No recall is anticipated (in the near future).
Midwest Express does usually open windows for apps and resumes. Don't expect anything for a while. I would be surprised if they opened a window in the next 1 to 2 years. As for why I believe that: 105 (maybe 106) total furloughs; there were 33 recalls starting Feb. 1 going through April 15. The next batch of recalls pobably won't happen until late in 4Q, around the holidays. That still leaves a crap load of fellow pilots on the street. I'm getting close on recall, but I believe I'll surpass 1 year on furlough at least. This furlough probably won't be as bad as at the majors, but then again, look who we are talking about....
