Did both of these companies actually furlough pilots yet? If so, how many.

Did any America West pilots get furloughed? The ones hired around 2004?


Thanks,...

Welcome to 2008. Approximately 161 AWA pilots have been furloughed which goes to on or about June, 2004.

SFR is just another flamer trolling for attention. He's a CAL puke who does everything he can to diminish our profession both here on FI and at his job at CAL.

Right SFR?

UAL has been furloughing for at least 9 months. About 900 or so so far. 1450 total by years end.

Anyone remember back in the day...around '98 or so when FI had professionals instead of f*cking idiots?

Oh, now I see why Regional guys get labeled immature and unprofessional.

"Your pitchman" died at home, of heart disease, not on landing.

So go suck down some more Slim Jims, crack a World of Warcraft mountain dew, and do us all a favor by stepping back from the keyboard.

Yeah, I do. But then, that was pre-economic meltdown, pre-9/11, and EVERYBODY was hiring with nobody on furlough. Not excusing it, but just trying to explain how those things have embittered many on FI.

I guess my own world in Bentwater. I don't pay too much attention to the rest of the industry unfortunately, I just care about CAL. (I barely know what is going on here)

Sorry to hear of so many furloughs. How far back do the UAL ones go? I know someone hired in April 2000, would he be working or not?

I remember those days.... it's when I decided to chuck it all and pursue a career in aviation!

If I had known then what I know now.... still life isn't awful, just not what I had hoped financially. Everything else is better than I could have imagined.

What is wrong with it. I think making 6 figures is good for working 15 days per month, or less...

Not many make 6 figures these days.


How far down %-wise do the UAL furloughs go when it hits 1400? That's got to be like 25% or more.... freaking unreal.
