Floatplane said:I would find this very hard to believe, however if it is true then all of us that commute to work will be in for a real shocker. Unlimited jumpseats, usually means unlimited, not unlimited for a price. The industry is truly in a state of panic and this would just be another simptom of a bigger problem. The airlines are barely hanging on by a thread. This is not the solution to a much bigger problem. If pilots cannot get to work, then airplanes will sit idle at the gate.
Infact, I think this might just be another attempt at flame bait. I guess I got hooked.
miles otoole said:OR it could be the new paradigm in which, much like other jobs, you commute to work on your own dime. I don't agree, however, management wears the leather pants now.
You may just have to consider ponying up to commute or live in your domicile. BTW, if pilots cannot get to work, I doubt airplanes will sit idle for very long. Pilots will be the one's sitting idle.
Either way, don't be surprised.
