Today the pilot representative group SAPA informed pilots that if the various programs of voluntary leave, and part time pilots would not work to accomodate and aleveate some of the overstaffing, in the fall there might be an undetermined number of furloughs.

If Skywest is talking about furlough, that's like the pope saying the end is near. It's now officially bad for the regionals.

Don't worry phagjhets is not far behind, you will be lucky to be cleaning toilets at the Steak and Shake, which you are fairly qualified for.

Well I figure I will show up for work until they tell me not to. I will say that trying to predict the airline industry in 6 months is like trying to predict the weather 6 months in advance. A whole lot can happen. It isn't looking good though...

If you are just starting to look for alternatives now, you are way behind the curve. I started 20 years ago, and have always had options, they vary, and most times 3-4 options. Getting into this business without looking at the history is well.......you get it now?

Unfortunately an airline pilot is furloughed an average of 2 times during their career. It's just the way the unions have designed it.

Screw ALPA national for the demise of this industry.

The funny thing is, and I have posted it before, we were hiring one more pilot at my corporation. Chating with my chief pilot and he was showing me some of the resumes he had received, I pointed out a few of them that had go-jets on it, I explained their story to my chief, and he then went through the stack of resumes and pulled all of the ones he had received from Go-Jets guys and threw them away. So at least one corporation in Chicago does give a rats-as$.

You see the thing is now that the regional pilots are moving on to bigger and better things the word on Go-Jets will get out. Sure the guys at FedEx may hire go jets guys now, but wait till one of the younger pilots who does not like go-jets winds up on the hiring board. It will catch up to them. And to any of you Go-Jets guys that sent in resumes for a Chicago corporation who was hiring Gulfstream and Global drivers, sorry but now you know why you did not get a call.

Bull********************. You're an eagle guy on reserve who got turned down for a GJ interview. Just a few months ago, you had 3000 hours working for a charter in the Middle East. Now you have a 5000 and are a g5 pilot in Chicago? You also said you fly the G5 based in the Middle East. Get your lies straight.

I never said I fly a G5 in the middle east, I flew the Legacy in the middle east for a company called Prestige Jet with Gerry Dolan the Chief Pilot. Believe what you want Go-Jets guy, and you do not have to worry about it, cause you will never work where I do. And about having 3000 hours how on earth would you know what I have? Are you basing it on my profile? Sorry I do not update my times on my profile every month.

Well for a corp G5 pilot you sure care a lot about what's going on with us lowly regional pilots. Enough to go out of your way and be a deuchebag since you've been affect so deeply by GJ in your career at Eagle and the "middle east". I hope some GJ guy runs over your dog, or worse. And I am very sure you said the same thing that you would make your "middle east" operation throw away GJ pilot resumes. So is it the Chicago or Middle Eastern ops?? I could pull the post but I'm too lazy.

I dont have a dog. Go-Jets did affect a few very close friends of mine, along with a cousin, all at TSA when Go-Jets was formed.

That number is an average industry-wide. Take that for what it's worth. But if one hasn't been furloughed yet, chances are they will.
Get rid of ALPA and see how quick the industry changes for the good.

The email did not say they will furlough in the fall. The email basically summed up everything they have been saying for months.

WOW, you have graduated from Pinnacle bashing to ALPA bashing.

Quick question: when Mesaba was in bankruptcy and the judge was shoving a unbelievably concessionary contract down the pilots throats, who was it that came in at the last minute and brokered a better deal with snap-backs?

As I recall, your arrogant self was on furlough at the time. If it wasn't for an ALPA negotiated CBA, you wouldn't have been on furlough, you would have just been laid off or fired.

Congratulations, you are now the biggest idiot of all time on FI.

I bet the whole GJ squad had your mom!

Not to mention stupid! Besides, I bet you're too busy pulling on other things!:blush: :laugh:
