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


Wait, I was told those billboards were ONLY going to be shown in Reno and Japan. DAMN THOSE GUYS!

Wow, 3 pages and you homos still keep posting replies to this thread!? So you idiots can't realize that General Lee posts this stuff just to get a reaction from all you nancy boys?

Seriously, at this point you braniacs must know that his post will be inflammatory so why do you even bother reading it much less replying to it? Normally I'd say get a life, but yet here I am replying to this moronic post. Christ, now I've been drawn in to this asinine thread.

How many CAL pilots did your cheap outsourced job put on the street?



eP.

I think the better question is how many potential jobs at CAL mainline were turned into lower paying regional jobs?

Most of the CAL pilots I saw that were furloughed were the guys in the left seat via the flowdown from CAL. They all seemed happy to have a job and not be on the street. Think of that, mainline pilots happy to be flying RJs. It will happen again, but this time with the larger RJs. And that means some of us (not you most likely) will move up the ladder too. Enjoy your misery.

Bumped? You mean you didn't OFFER your seat to the pilot you took it from?

You must be on drugs, or just plain dumb. There was a flow down and a flow up, and many took advantage of that deal. I wasn't hired in time for that. But, hopefully more mainline MECs will try to take back some of their old flying with the larger RJs, and I will get hired to go along with them. You won't, though, and no source needed.

Are you on the MEC at XJT?

This is an anonymous board. Is your name Phil Mycrackin? I bet it is.

That would be the perfect answer if the question had been "Is this an anonymous board?". But it wasn't.

I'll ask the question again, real slowly, so that you might understand it. Feel free to read the question twice before responding.

The RJ's are going to get parked especially the 50's in the next 2-3 years and we are talking 100's of em. All of that flying will go back to mainline and then you guys will have to deal with finding a new job. Good thing I will be on the hiring committee to help you out. :)

I think he posts this stuff and gets on the Regional boards because it strokes his ego to be able to belittle people he feels are below his level. It has nothing to do with "aviation debate" being a hobby (as he stated in a previous post) because a good debater never makes personal attacks or gets shaken by those who personally attack him.

More "sources" for you eD.

Joshua Freed, AP Airlines Writer, On Thursday January 13, 2011, 7:48 pm EST

Delta Air Lines Inc. is considering an order for as many as 200 jets -- possibly with options for 200 more -- to replace the aging fleet it uses for domestic flying.

Delta said it asked "several major aircraft manufacturers" for proposals for firm orders for 100 to 200 planes, with options for 200 more, with deliveries to begin in early 2013. No decisions about an order have been made yet, said Nat Pieper, Delta's vice president for fleet strategy and transactions. The request went to manufacturers in late December.
The new planes would replace Delta workhorses such as the DC-9-50s and Airbus A320s that it got when it bought Northwest Airlines in 2008, as well as Boeing 757-200s, which both airlines have operated.

CEO Richard Anderson said in a message to employees that Delta pilots will fly the new planes, not feeder carriers. Delta has shifted flying away from feeder carriers, and has gotten rid of more than 70 of its 50-seat regional jets and 25 Saab 340 turboprops.

A jet order will give Delta the size of planes it needs "to be able to replace retiring airplanes and have modest growth when the economy and fuel prices support it," Anderson said. He said Delta is looking for small, medium, and large planes in the "narrowbody" category, meaning planes with a single aisle for passengers.

Boeing Co. and Airbus, a unit of EADS, are the main manufacturers who could meet such an order, although Chinese and Brazilian manufacturers also plan new planes of the size Delta is looking for.

Thanks James Carville.......a good debater.........what??? He is the best around, and slams people left and right. Did you hear how he talks about Palin? Debate that. I bet you can't.

I will defer to johnsonsrod's expertise. He can provide you with an exact guess.

This doesn't really say anything.

Sounds like replacement jets for Delta and the fact they've removed some 50 seaters. Nothing about continuing to remove more aircraft.

RA might actually be stating that fact they've removed 50 seaters so you go home happy while they ADD 70 seaters.

Gullible. Haha!
