I was wondering the same thing myself...Supposedly, a major announcement was going to be made after the bankruptcy was resolved. Are they still going to take delivery of the airplanes that were on option? Or is the sim that is leased from CAE going to be replaced by the new one that they had on order? Guess will know more as the merger and Air Wisconsin's involvement is clarified.
As told to us from our VP, we will be rather stagnant for the next year or longer. As told to us by one of our CP, upgrade is expected to be 4 to 4.5 years. Pay rates for F/O's are better than Airlink (sorry guys) just a shy better than Mesa (at least they have a future, long term contrcact with AWA/Airways) and miles behind the others. Contract is valid til 09' (and trust me, we have nothing like AWAC). Hiring will continue next year, but they are mainly just tring to keep up with the attrition (as high as 20%, I understand). Wholly owned by a mainline carrier isn't always as privileged as it appears
