Due to the overwhelming response of all employees, there will be no need for either furloughs or layoffs at this time.

Great news for ALL of the pilots at NetJets!

We went from 700 pilots too many to just 90 pilots.

Great job everyone!

Proud to be a NJA'er....

I was not in danger of a furlough, but I know many of my friends were. I figured it was LEAST i could do to take 4 floating days non-paid per month and opted'in.

Glad we made it happen.

B19.....I accept your apology and your surrender.

Where were the most people from, LOA or buyout? The LOA is just a furlough on better terms. Which is a good thing.

LOA is not like a furlough as it was voluntary and NOBODY was forced to take an LOA. NetJets IS the greatest aviation company in the world and I'm proud to fly for them.

There were multiple types of LOAs being offered. One type was like a furlough on better terms. Pilots had the option of taking that "first" or "last" preference (meaning, either because they wanted the time away --"first preference" -- or in lieu of a furlough -- "last preference"). That bid has not closed, but it would seem to me that if we are not going to furlough we are also not going to award any "last preference." Other LOAs have been awarded to folks have applied (everything from a few days to a full year). But those LOAs are quite different from a furlough.

I can tell you that I would've been one of the first to go (last class at NJA), and I'm greatly appreciative of the efforts of everyone at NJ...top to bottom.

This is truly a different company, and I'm proud to be apart of the family.

I've worked at several aviation company's and never have felt so proud to be at NJA. From a little known movement called "strong union" which nail down a industry breaking contract. The unity between company and union which amended that contract in 07. Now, amidst economic downturn, voluntary measures aimed at saving job is a big success. Thanks to everybody at NJA!

Wow - great news guys! That must be quite a relief for the lower guys on the totem pole.

Question for you: are any fleet types (i.e., Ultra, Encore or Beechjet) still being considered for storage/sale in the economic downturn or will fleet mix likely remain the same? I recall talking to a few Netjetters who felt some fleet types were vulnerable due to very low utilization and anemic share sales. I realize they could have been just voicing opinions... Any thoughts about potentially consolidating fleet types with any surplus pilots reassigned to more popular/growing fleets (i.e., XLS, etc.)?

Are any new airplanes expected this year to replace older airframes? What is the status of the Hawker 4000 - will it EVER arrive on the line at Netjets?

EVERY airplane is for sale. only the ultra is in hardcore disposal. We will be getting 10 new planes by the end of this year. H4000 will be here someday....

Dear B19,

Eat sh&t, you Peckerwood!!!

Sincerely,

T-1

Come on T1. Watch your language! A Peckerwood is much too good for B19.

PS. Here comes B19 saying how NetJets really did furlough and the union is the source of it..........

The contract was waaaaay too expensive. Remember.

F ing Loser.
