Anyone know what the big announcement is going to be and if it has anything to do with Flight Options? Lots of rumors floating around...anyone care to give details?

I was in Columbus all week for meetings. The small word going around the palace was:

A buyout could happen soon. Even with Raytheon investing some $50 million into options.

NJA will take options new planes, old planes get sold.

NJA will offer interviews to options pilots.

NJA goal is to become a global giant in aviation.

NBAA convention is next week. Look for NJA to get back on track and order a bunch of planes.

I ran into BB in the hall and asked about hiring. He is now saying 750 pilots in 2006. I don't think this is possible due to sim slots.

heard the same rumor on the road, fine with me, moves me up on the senority list. Might help some of the bypass FO's move up to captain sooner if all of the Otions pilots come in at the bottom of the senority list, get their newer airplanes and get orders for more at the NBAA meetings.

Nice twist!

Prior to union vote at Options, Raytheon buys Netjets to bust union prior to TA ratification.


oooooohhhhhh. that would be interesting. Then I would move up in the seniority list.

What if the earth was to fall out of orbit? Not saying that it couldn't happen, just highly unlikely.

Hey anything can happen but Uncle Warren doesn't invest in companies short term. I don't think we are going anywhere. But hey I have been wrong before.

Does that mean that current Option's pilots have to interview to keep their jobs?

Ok Ok, the big announcement is I'M BUYING NETJETS, AND OPTIONS AND CS, AND FLEX. Big raises for everyone, and strippers for flight attendants. 1 on 30 off, and triple time for any time over 3 hours of duty. One seniority number for all and sick time accrues at a rate of 30 days per month.

(Kids screaming in the background) Damn, it was just a dream. Oh well, I was disgustingly rich for a few minutes anyway!! Why can't it ever come true? :bawling:

Well I'm still unhappy with that 3 hr duty day.

The big guy (BB) was asked in recurrent if there would be any big announcements from NBAA. He did not answer directly with a yes or no. Seemed to leave the door open for some type of announcement.

GS rumors have been floating for at least a year or more. Same with Options. It was my belief that there was something in the works last year but the failed TA put the kibosh on that.

Looks like it's shaping up to be an interesting and fluid few months.

NJ simply didn;t know what it had to spend on goodies until the contract was finished. Now it does. Standby for XMAS.
