i hate to be the harbinger of bad news, but this sector is very not immune to economic troubles.... not profound i know, but it seems like fracs are famine or feast..

No kidding. It's only going to get worse. The slow season has just begun.

Flex laid off the last bunch (60) in anticipation of the slow season. Hopefully, your 24 are also in anticipation, and this is the last go. I don't know what else to say except I'm sorry.

It looks that way on the surface but if we compare the amount of furloughs at fracs vs airlines (proportional wise) you'll notice the fractionals are actually not that bad...........

A true statement indeed, but try telling that to the guys who are furloughed. Myself included. From where we stand it looks like the only light in this tunnel is coming from the train that just ran us over.
