But, a friend of mine has been furloughed from US Airways at the end of Feb. He had a class date set up as Captain on the J31 there. (he flew the J31 for about 1000 hrs in the right seat somewhere else) and was on the 737 at Airways (right seat).
He arrived in Portsmouth (after the 12 hours drive from PIT) only to show up to class and be told about a lengthy (5 years?) contract for big bucks on the J31.
He asked how come they didn't mention it before? Oh, it's new (past few weeks) was the response. He and another guy said, thanks but no thanks and left.
