Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls Its been a long fun ride but like everything that ride will come to an end. Unfortunately it appears JUS is coming to an end, I enjoyed flying and working with each and eveyone of you...yes even you pilotyip. I know I have said some harsh things over time and have had great disdain for some of our management. Well I can say with certainty that only one person has remaind at the helm of this sinking ship. And hope that no one in their right mind puts him in charge of anything except handing out toliet paper in some high end bathroom. For everyone else I will miss all the fun times and comradre that made JUS what it was. thank goodness I got my college degree (unlike pilotyip preached) it has enabled to move on to greener non-aviation pastures. I wish you all well and for everyone to keep their head up and don't give up.

Sorry to hear it is coming to an end, but is this factual or rumor based? I hope things get better, not worse...Good Luck eveyone.

Nice! I hope you're never out of work.
Maybe he'll learn to spell....that should increase his chances of employment.

It has been two-weeks since they booked a trip on their RFQ site Active Aero. It was rumored months ago that doors would shut 1Jan if no one bought it. There is still a rfq from 2 weeks ago on the board for Europoop.

Haven't seen but one -9 in the air a couple of times over the holidays. Doesn't look good.

Curious. Several of my competitors laid out a whole bunch of credit to AA brokered trips since the JAN1 Rumor. 60+ days to pay up means there could be quite a cascade to smaller operators who beat each other up to fly AA work.

Another Sad, Sad, Sad day. Hopefully, the next guy to interview this NutJob of a CEO will do so just to laugh in his face until he leaves.

Yeah, it's a good thing a company which offered better starting pay than the regionals along with tuition reimbursement is out of business. Maybe Mesa will hire you.

I went from Mesa to JUS.... classic example of getting screwed. Oh, but im not bitter. I just dont understand how JUS cant turn it around...the have 8 pilots on their payroll, planes are paid for, and they operate out of dumpster. Where did all the cash go?? Sounds like senior MGMT ran it into the ground themselves.

Guys...good luck and hang in there. I have been down the furloughed/laid off road...I know it is hard.

At Cherry Air we used to park on your ramp and we would look at your -9's in envy and marvel at the size of your operation. You guys always were nice to us. Sad times indeed...keep your head up.

I ran into the crew (of the contract -9 to the Dominican) Saturday night in San Juan. They said they were going to be in San Juan until the 12th before they rotated out. Looks like I'll see if the -9 is still on the ramp down here when i go to work today.

I'm not at all surprised to hear this. Good luck all.

I just spoke with one of the 8 pilots left and he had not heard anything about USA JET going bye bye. However based on there history this means nothing as they had a habit of keeping there employee's in the dark.

Lots of rumors, but my pay check was good on Friday and as of a few minutes ago I checked my company e-mail and had received an e-mail from Healy concerning the pay cuts that were taken a few weeks ago as well as the RIF. Good news for those full time employees making less than 40,000 a year, they were just bumped to 40,000 a year......... May we all hope things get better soon.

The only good news would be that instead of contract employees they would HIRE people with any since of decency that would make them pay benefits, minimum pay, and a give them a schedule (even the on demand type schedule.)

CONTRACT 121.... seriously? I guess you can screw anyone for a price. (Or in this case, pennies on the dollar)

Also... any actual "employee" that would tolerate working for a company doing such things without raising hell needs to leave this industry and let us that have some life in us fight for what your giving away!

You can't even explain this kind of BS to a REAL pilot. Why? Because they have had the pleasure of working with people with standards.

Oh screw it.... free milk..... no need to buy a cow. Gesh!

That's too bad. Spending some time around the freight world, USA Jet was a great place to work. Good luck to all that were there.

BTW dewpoint, to say go fu*k yourself wouldn't be enough. Such a tool.
