#TicToc the clock is running out for NJ pilots. Tell me the last time that many senior folks left NJ for FSI or vice versa? Seems to me that you are being misinformed by your own company.

Tens of thousands of Americans will be dying alone on ventilators in the coming weeks...

Worrying about what is happening at Net jets should be the least of anyone's concern ... the entire Aviation Industry is on its ass. best of luck and health to all...

Why would anyone pay any attention to a moron like this who has zero accuracy in his assertions? At least it has created some revival of FI. He probably knows the reality and instead drinks Ricci’s koolaid with their non contractual pay cuts, hoping life sucks at NJA as well. Truth? It appears Ricci doesn’t know the definition. Not a new revelation. Get a life clue bag.
I’m just looking for any excuse to try and revive this forum! So if it’s smacking down half-informed morons, well hey, you gotta take what the universe gives you at this point and time! :)

With the high number of NJ pilots over 65, I can see why your fine leadership had to come up with the VLOA. It is well-known in the industry what is happening at NJ. #Tic-Toc #QuarterOfTheSize

While you guys are flying on airlines possibly exposing others to this virus, we are flying on our aircraft to keep our brothers and owners safe.

He'sBackLying :

Governor Cuomo and others estimate 80% will get COVID. Sometime before that happens people will realize there is no point social distancing and keeping America shut down. Who will we be quarantining from if everyone has already been infected? Looks like that will happen in a few months. People will travel again, and we will all be back to work. Furloughs only make sense if the problem lasts more than one year.

Project Lift is a GREAT marketing tool and I'm proud of the innovative thinking put into it but let's not kid ourselves that it necessarily makes us "safer".

Airlines are doing social distancing right now maintaining seat assignments that keep planes 1/3 full and passengers well separated. No beverage service and air circulated through hepa at full blast and cabins ozonated before every boarding.

Right now we should be banding together as colleagues, doing our best to maintain frac as a viable business model. We can get back to the chest thumping when we all survive this ride, ok?

BTW, whoever has influence at our companies should be pushing for these portable ozone units for the cabins right now. Talk about a marketing tool that actually might save lives.

Very good points. Honestly, since the brown stuff hit the fan with this virus, all my airline flights have had no more than 5 or 6 people on them, be it RJ or 737. Scary for the airlines, but with no one within at least 6 rows of me I'm not particularly worried.

On the other hand, are you really safer being ferried in a Phenom or some other similar aircraft with 1-7 other people sitting in close proximity to you (how far apart can you get on a small to mid-size private jet?)?

We have some at Netjets who'd definitely prefer being ferried to work on a company jet (although I'm not sure how excited too many would be about it with adding in a long drive before and after to a hub) but I think more are okay with being on an empty airline.

And those who are really bothered by potential exposure now have the option to stay at home continuously with the new LOA program.

Tell us. What is it that is ”well know in the industry” that’s happening at NJA?

Inquiring minds want to know! This should be good!

His greatest claim to fame is playing “connect the boogers” while camping out under KRs desk. That and where the moles are is the extent of his “what’s happening” anywhere type knowledge.

I think if I were in that situation, I'd rather be stuck with up to 6 other people on a Phenom who I would suspect are clean individuals that I know versus strangers on an airline.

And why would you suspect they're "clean"? Because they're going to work? I see zero logic in what you're saying. If this were the flu, or a regular cold, sure. Because with those illnesses you aren't contagious until you have symptoms. Also, the incubation period is shorter, so if they were sick, it'd likely manifest itself on their time off and they'd know not to go to work.

But with COVID-19? Not the same at all. The "clean" crew members you're sitting right next to on the Phenom could easily be asymptomatic carriers, just waiting for the opportunity to pass it to you where you might be the one to suffer mightily (or die) or pass it to someone close to you who would suffer.

I'm not sure there's any way to be 100% safe from this illness except to stay home. If we're going to go to work, we're accepting increased risk. But social distancing is the still highly recommended for people who have to be out, and sitting crammed into a small private jet would seem to go against that recommendation more than being on an airliner with no one sitting in your immediate vicinity.

YMMV.

There was a post on APC that seems to indicate aircraft are being parked and something else. Also saw in the news that AJ does not plan to take CARES money. Any guesses what that means? #RightAllAlong

Everyone is parking aircraft now. But you know that. I bet you really suck at poker.

It means you were right.

We're done. Found out through the grapevine they're putting a plan together to close the doors on this place shortly after this crisis is over.

Parked planes are just the beginning. We all thought a large portion of our fleet wasn't flying because there just weren't any flights. Turns out it was a cruel hoax. Clients have absolutely been clamoring to fly, but NJ management has been making excuses to them all while quietly putting their planes up for sale.

Oh the inhumanity!! If only we'd been offered a deal as good as KR has "offered" his pilots! How shortsighted we've all been over here! In fact, I know I'll be castrated by our own pilots for saying it, but we'd probably survive if only we didn't have a union. Where will we all go now?

Don't you worry, DAC (Kenn Ricci) will buy the pieces and you can all go work for him! Just a heads-up: the pin striped pants are super small in the crotch (cause Flexjet pilots have no balls?), and the spandex Nazi shirts absorb water like a sponge so when it's raining they get lots of lovely dark spots until it dries out. Enjoy!

NJ has the better deal. YOU ARE RIGHT: 3-4 times larger, parking nearly the entire fleet, not flying, not receiving FDP, and EVERYONE knows what is going on. And you are able to do all this while holding each others hands singing songs together. #CONGRATS

Yes yes!! EVERYONE knows what's going on! No point in trying to keep it a secret anymore! We're gone man! GONE! We're not holding hands and singing songs, we're trying to huddle together for warmth in the midst of the total wreck that is (soon to be 'was') Netjets!

Oh, if only we'd had you to warn us earlier! Anonymous posters on FI always have the BEST info! Especially the folks that don't actually work here. The old "I heard it from a friend who heard it from a steward who posted in APC" communication network can't be beat!

Truth time: we really and truly have furloughed 1000 pilots. Gone! The majority of the fleet is parked and being sold off. Gone! Senior management are jumping ship faster than rats from a burning barn. Gone! 401K matching and all other benefits canceled. Gone!

The only thing more amazing than this is that not a single aviation publication has reported on any of this. It's quite a compliment to the "APC to steward to friend to ImBack" network that all this was discovered so handily. I know what news network I'll be tuning into from now on!

This guy is a fool. While trying to ruffle our feathers, his prime goal is to appease his own pilots who have seen the lies, reduction in pay, loss of 401k contributions, etc after falling for the anti union rhetoric. Very similar to Joseph Goebbels and Baghdad Bob. Falsify reality to appease the masses and hold down the fort till they come up with the next lie. The repetition of history is yet again ignored by those who drank the koolaid.
