Net Jets is furloughing 495 pilots effective January 16th. Good luck to everyone.

That seems like quite a lot. Did the pilots know this was coming?

But it appears they are not going to release anyone early if they should find a job before 1-16-10

I know a guy that was warned by the union a few months ago. fortunately he lined up a full-time guard job. he's one of the lucky ones.

Yup. The exact number remained to be determined, but amaineiac said, the union has been warning the bottom ~500 for quite some time. Their estimate was pretty much dead-on.

Good luck to my furloughed friends; we'll work damn hard to get you back ASAP!

Good luck to the NJA guys

Will it be the same number of downgrades or more because there are more CA/s to F/Os?

As he said, no staple involved. A combined "Virtual Seniority List" was created for our integration of NJA and NJI. The list is based on date-of-hire, and was the one used for the furlough.

I stand corrected. In any event, sorry this is happening.

WOW, nearly 500 furloughs without a downgrade? That would seem to indicate a significant amount of aircraft removed from service!
No, just a well-written contract that makes it damn near impossible to downgrade someone.
