As of today, 606 pilots furloughed- 150 voluntary, 456 involuntary. 350 more pilots (active + Leave of Absence) by the end of June 2009.

It's a bummer that more SAM personnel are being laid off now. Most of those people are just trying to make a living, just like us, and are as frustrated with our management team as we are.

There probably are some charges. I think Mikells even noted some one time training charges for the reshuffling of pilot seats. Those types of one time charges, however, are miniscule in the big picture considering we'll be taking losses of 100's of millions of dollars in hedging losses.
