pilotyip said:As Mark Twain said, "The rumors of my death are greatly exaggerated”. Working in the on-demand business sucks. It has wild swings in the business cycle. It is the nature of the beast. The pay reduction sucks, but to get the same savings in dollars almost 30 pilot would have lost their jobs and another 10 Captains would have been bumped back in pay and seat to F/O. As business returns, pay will return, this was stated at the state of the union by Brian and Chris, just no date was given. USA Jet is a long-term player in my book, sound management, and a good business plan to diversify outside of the on-demand cargo and many things in the works to make this a better and stronger company. Our DC-9 are flying a lot, with Ameristar parking one of their 73’s and the canx of a 73 initial class; plus Zantop’s L-188’s collecting dust at YIP, there is a something promising on the horizon. Our passenger business had almost tripled in three years. Unhappy campers who bail out early will only know if they made the right move 5 years from now. Like the friends of mine who left North Central in 1973 for EAL, or left GM Corp for Braniff in 1978, or the pilot who left SWA for UAL in 2001.
