So the assumption is 15 pink slips and 20 downgrades?

Thats too bad would prefer to see Airtran and SWA join up to put Delta out of business for good. ( Sorry just too many " Have a good time in LBB " comments to feel any other way)

Hang in there guys!!

The scenario will probably play out similar to the one that just occurred.

20 737 CA get displaced. All 20 are senior enough to hold CA on the 717 so 20 717 CA get downgraded. 60% of the downgraded 717 CA choose to go to 737 FO causing 27 displacements from 737 FO position.

35 717 FOs are furloughed due to 27 737 FOs coming over to the 717 and the 8 717 CA choosing to stay on the same airplane and go to the right seat (a few 737 FO may get furloughed and a few more 717 FOs might stay on property depending on the new hire class make up for August/September 2007 and LOA approved).

Doesn't make sense to do this unless the company is confident that next summers scheduled block hours can be covered by the remaining pilots. Too much training to go through for it to have a duration of 2-4 months.

Keen observation. Yeah, all of the airlines have done great since 78. Guess Obama will wreck our great streak of prosperity.

Well, the last 8 years were awesome if you are one of the 5% with 90% of the wealth.

You know, some of those 5% have worked extreamly hard to get where they are. Why should they have to share with the bums on the steet who don't work hard?

Now I also know some of the 5% didn't do anything but sit there. Thier wealth was given to them by parents. Why should the get taxed at 50% for working hard and wanting to give something to thier children (the parents at thier death)?

At the end of any elections a group is going to be unhappy. Even the winning group will have some unhappy members.

No furlhoughs at all... Just some 737 guys who are going over to the 717... Thats it. The 717 is short on FO's right now. Do you guys ever get over the gloom and doom attitudes.... My god, go get laid would ya....

My point exactly. I'm not really thinking things will get better for us average joes with either candidate. That said, the resolve of a true American lies within him/herself, not who is voted for. However, if and when the tide turns after the election, I will do my best to adapt and change to how it affects me. Help yourself, damn the politics, because all they is say damn the electorate.

My prediction: Obama wins, unemployment soars as high taxes lead to layoffs among small businesses (80% of the total) and Canada and Mexico invade us simultaneously. Good times.

Not that it makes much of an impact, but Air Tran is being removed from the Interline personal travel pull down menu at FedEx.

Obama is spreading the wealth like Reagan then?

After all if you call Obama a Socialist because he is rolling back the tax plan to what Reagan had then Reagan's tax cuts were not enough to distinguish him from this either.

Don't mean to hijack the thread, but getting labor friendly appointees in the National Mediation Board, and having labor friendly "judges" deciding on labor issues -like contracts during bankruptcy- is so much more important...

...so much more important than our tax cuts.

"Well, the last 8 years were awesome if you are one of the 5% with 90% of the wealth."

What a great line, the fact that it is not true is meaningless. The new left in America has learned the art of the "big lie" from Joseph Goebbels

Yeah we should take it from them, those evil rich folks. Give it to the government, they will make sure we are all equally poor. Clowns like you used to be called "fellow travelers" Why don't you look and see how well it worked last time a government tried to redistribute the wealth.

A trillion dollars to win the cold war, and we are being destroyed from within.

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the public treasure. From that moment on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most money from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy followed by a dictatorship."

Where do you think we stand in the history of American democracy?
