I think it's funny frankly. Obviously he's very impressed with himself, considering himself a cut above the rest (or at least regional pilots). In reality he probably has a delicate ego....

Hey Lee, I should have some of my friends who work for large banks, hedge funds, accounting firms come on and run you down for your stupid career choice. They're making your pay 5 years and don't have to deal with goof-ball airline management antics. (And I'm not talking one of your ACME Atlanta banks that's on the FDIC watch list).

BLAH BLAH BLAH. Great, you have friends that are at the hedge funds. I married into a rich family, and my wife makes more money than most SWA Captains as an Ad Exec here in ATL. Zippy di do..... And, I enjoy my job, get time off and don't have to work 9-5, fly all over the World, and I have time to get on FI and enjoy my passion: Aviation debate. I think I have a great life. You and your friends the bankers don't sound so great. Most people on Wall St don't make it big, only their bosses.


Bye Bye--General Lee

To single out one particular aircraft type that will be affected by rising fuel prices is the most stupid statement I have heard yet.Last I heard the CRJ burns less fuel than the Embraer.

Hey Jenny,
Can you post Boyd's predictions from 2009 & 2010, I'm kind of curious of what was said back then. Much appreciated
Thanks Jennilee

Mike Boyd of the Boyd Group has released his 2008 airline industry predictions. Key among them: $100 oil will drive regional jets (RJs) to the desert graveyards sooner than expected; desperate “low-cost carriers” will need to cut capacity somehow; and “comprehensive network carriers” will need to improve their management of every minute. Boyd’s weekly commentaries, archived here, are always must reading for its boldness and contravention of conventional wisdom. If you recognize his name, it’s because he’s quoted in newspapers all the time. An industry consultant, he openly acknowledges who he’s consulted for when relevant (for example, he’s very bullish on Embraer’s E-Jets, for which his firm consulted). He’s also a spicy writer:

All of those things happened in 2008. It probably wasn't tough to predict that, but it did happen. When oil was near $130 a barrel, RJs were starting to be parked, and have been parked ever since. (look at Comair) LCCs stopped their expansion, and the Legacies did get new management---RA took over at Delta and found a merger partner with NWA, Larry Kelhner left CAL, etc. A lot of what he says is obvious, and a lot of it also becomes reality. If you want to read all of his predictions, you can go to his website. Interesting reading.

Actually, DL RJs go to LBB from MEM, not mainline jets (thank gawd). You have a better chance than I do of ever having to go to LBB. If you ever do, maybe you and 79%N1 can go find a local disco and dance together. That would be fun to watch. But watch out, it appears he cries at the drop of a hat. Bring tissues.

Sickening? How about just posting information? I posted what a noted analyst stated about his own predictions of 2011. You can believe them or not. I didn't highlight any points, rather I just posted the whole regional section of the predictions.

Bye Bye---General Lee

That's baloney and you know it. You don't even need to be talking to the regional guys. You keep posting these articles about how RJs are going away just to stir the pot. Grow up and leave them alone.

If the RJ is on it's way out, why would the Delta and UAL/CAL pilots want to spend negotiating capital on something that is going away?

50 seaters are going away, which is a given. 70 seaters may be next. If the 76 seaters are currently replacing smaller mainline planes (94 UAL 733s and 735s were dumped to facilitate a merger, not because the demand wasn't there), then we may want to take a look at them. Maybe bringing E175s into the flock would be a good start. Could we have done that with Compass? Sure, but we didn't own Compass, the company did, and they decided to sell it before our talks. They saw Dalpa wasn't going to give in on 100 seaters, and then wanted to get out of the Regional owning business. Nobody wants to buy Comair, I guess.

Gen Lee will still be flamebaiting at 140,000 posts, and his unfortunate anatomical abnormalities will still be just as severe.

-140,000 posts still won't get you a big boy unit, Gen. Look at the bright side: there will always be a bright future for you in mouse porn.

-Just deal.

Gotta ask: How are you so familiar with qualifications for mouse porn?

Saw a billboard in LBB. I am pretty sure Gen Lee was the guy molesting that little mouse.


Fair enough. Someone commented on the apparent diminuitive size of my junk in another thread. Was looking into a career in that area as a result.
