I hate to be the first to ask.....but I will anyway. What is Polar's policy toward major furloughees? And, if they accept those of us with that scarlet letter, what is the pay scale?

Thanks for whatever info you can provide!!

Isn't there some conflict going on right now between Atlas and Polar? I heard there was some big push to prevent pilots from going to Polar...what's the scoop?

What information is available regarding schedules? The last guy I talked to, a few months ago, told me he worked there for a year. The bottom line amounted to the fact that he was gone anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 months straight, taking his days off on the road, in different countries. This is great if you're single, but not for a guy with family.

Can anyone confirm or deny this info? I would like to hear from someone currently working the line. Thanks.
